Our coonhound and basset love them, they don't last long since they're tough chewers. They even know when the chewy order comes in their PB sticks are in and get super excited! The only reason I'm not giving full stars is sometimes if you order bulk, some of the sticks are not full sticks.. it's almost a super thin one with only the inner chicken roll. So buying bulk I've found the sizes to be inaccurate but still buying this product they love it.
These SMART STICKS are popular among our BIG and little pups. Our oldest Saluki is picky when it comes to 'bones/treats' -but she does not hesitate with this one. Our Bischon is very picky and he will actually take one of these and finish it in one setting, He is one that if he does not like, he turns his nose up and leaves the treat on the ground, This particular treat is never left behind!
I’ve got a standard size Dachshund mix that’s 3.5 y/o named Ricky. He loves these sticks. When I ask him if he wants a treat he gets excited and runs around the apartment. When I try to offer the other smart bones he passes them over for the sticks. He loves the peanut butter ones only. It takes him a little bit to chew it all up and haven’t had any issues with them at all. I like the fact that they’re Rawhide free. I will keep buying them for my fur baby! I like the fact that I get them in 2 days and can set up Auto Ship. The web site is easy to browse through and ordering is simple.
Gave this to my doggo and she enjoyed it but started gagging and choking after finishing it. It’s quite hard and i think some parts splintered and got stuck in her throat. Luckily not an emergency (probably cos it’s corn based and softens unlike rawhide) but definitely won’t be feeding this again just in case.
I have given several of my dogs Smart Bones occasionally over the years. Often with diarrhea as a result. Thought I'd try giving them again to a 1 1/2 year old Chinese Crested, a 4 month old miniature poodle & a 12 year old Border Collie mix. Both younger dogs developed diarrhea & older dog threw up a couple times. Read the ingredients. Shocked to see Sorbitol! Why do chew bones for dogs need artificial sweeteners? Got to wondering if Sorbitol is chemically similar to Xylitol known to be toxic to dogs. Dogs were fine after giving Endosorb & famotidine but won't by Smart Bones again.
My German Shepherd got extremely sick from these. I spent a fortune at the vet and that’s not what this is about. I’m just glad he’s alive. Chewy should stop selling these. I am going to write on every website I can to help others. Do a Google search. (Google it on the company, and then the name of the treats. You will find it) Dreambones & Smartbones are owned by the same company. Spectrum brands has been under fire for years. They have had multiple recalls. Do you research. Save your dogs life. No treat is worth it.
These are a fun different treat to have in the house. My dog definitely loves them. It’s great they’re an alternative to rawhide but don’t expect them to last like rawhide last. I was baffled when my dog ate one in like a minute flat. but still a good treat
All my dogs get really excited when they see me open the bag of these treats. They are a touch big for my small breed dog and a touch small for my large breed dogs but they all gobble them down and beg for another one.
Otis loves these Smart Sticks. Just the right amount of peanut butter (his favorite flavor) and he looks forward to after dinner dessert each night.
I bought this product as a replacement for an out of stock item. The smartsticks look very different than what I'm used to. What matters most to me is that my dog likes them.
