My dogs love these but we actually get them for our cat. She doesnt like treats and is very finicky with her food. I have her a minnow and she was hooked!!! Being an indoor outdoor cat, I like to put eyes on her every night. We got her used to eating one (or 5) every night before bed. Now its routine, she comes home every night and obnoxiously screams at us until someone gives her her minnows!
Great treat! Use it to give my dog her daily liquid medication

My dog (chihuahua-terrier mix) loves these treats. In addition to her enjoying them they have also made it easier for me to administer her daily anti-seizure medication. I cut off the tail of the minnow and then insert the medication syringe and just squirt the liquid inside the minnow. I usually need to use 2 treats to administer all the medication. It makes the process of giving her the medication so much easier for me (and enjoyable for her!). My only frustration with the product is that the size of the minnows varies greatly from bag to bag, but I guess that is to be expected from a natural treat like this. When I buy these treats at a local store, I do look at all the bags and choose theMy dog (chihuahua-terrier mix) loves these treats.

And sooooo healthy. because my girls love them so much I use this treat when I am going to leave the house and restrain them in their 5 x 8 space. They are so excited, they don’t even know I am leaving. I think now they just want me to go.....
Loved by all my dogs!!

These freeze dried minnows are wonderful! I like to do scent games and these are great because they smell exactly what they are. Caution: I only give one or two a day (can break up into small pieces). Stools were loose when I gave more than that.

My one pup really enjoyed the minnows and devoured them. The other 2 just smelled them and let my other pup gobble them up. If you are concerned with the smell, I did not notice a discernible odor like you do with some fishy treats with my bag.
Minnows 4 The Win!

My mini Aussie, Kye, LOVES these Minnows! They smell fishy and the odor can be strong but it is so worth it! He loves working for them! If I am being honest, I did not think he would like these. He usually does not like fish tasting things (depends on the brand) but he actually loves these! I love that it has only MINNOWS as the ingredients. Limited ingredients is usually how I shop for my boy. I want him in top shape 100% of the time. These spice up dinner time and he actually picks them over his Orijen fish kibble. It changes up dinner and they are great treats for working, training, and if you just wanna give your baby a treat.

Since we feed raw diet, Ca is always my concern.
We are very glad that at least, half of our cats love this treat! The price is on the expensive side though.
Gift for my niece

Bought these as a gift for my 4-legged niece. She absolutely loves these treats. Excessively drooling for them when she sees one of her parents with the bag.
Smells good, Tastes great!

My indoor cats love these treats. All I have to do is shake the bag. They come running from other end of the house. Wonderful treats for training.

Our one year old labradoodle LOVES these treats! We use them for service-dog training and it feels good to know that they are good for his heart as well.
