Dogs loves these

My puppy, adult, and senior dogs all love these fishies. They go nuts for them. My puppy does especially well with these because they are smelly and she can use her nose and her senses to sniff them out when I hide them or make her do a puzzle toy to get them.

Dog and cats won't eat

My dog has never liked fish. I was hoping she would enjoy these since they're real and not just flavored, but she wouldn't eat them, just nibbled then tried to bury it. I tried to give my cats one, one cat is very picky and the other will eat anything, including flaming hot cheetos. The glutton cat wouldn't even taste it. I doubt the issue for the cats is that they don't like fish, because they love fish flavored treats. Maybe they like the flavor more than an actual fish. Either way, none of my pets enjoyed it. I will give the product the benefit of the doubt since my pets mat just not like real fish in general, or maybe they just don't like these.

Not what I expected

I've purchased other freeze dried minnows and both dogs & cat loved them, but these are very dry and seem less flavorful to my fur-kids. Will not be purchasing them again.

My Pup Adores Them!

I tried these on a whim since my 9 week old Aussie pup seems to enjoy meatier treats and I figured that these would double well as an added “snack” to her enrichment meals! When I got them I’ll admit, I was a little weirded out and she seemed hesitant at first but she absolutely loves them! She goes nuts for them and I will definitely be reordering them!

My dog LOVES these

My 1.5 yr old English Mastiff/Great Dane mix gobbles these up! She is a mixed feeder- so I do kibble and she gets raw toppings sometimes. Meet, fruits, veggies, eggs, whatever. Got these to spice thing up and she can’t get enough! They are small- but since she’s so big they are great to throw a couple in her food bowl or as a treat.

Paw training treats

These treats are the reason my cat has started learning tricks! These are the only treats my cat will eat and he will give you his paw on command every time! Thank you chewy!

Freeze dried minnows

Ok, these things look so gross and smell, of course like fish. My dog at first dropped it on the floor and started rolling on it. She obviously approved. Not only does the dog like them, but my cat is crazy for them also. They love them. I don't like them but I'm not the one eating them. Dog and cat approved!

Great high-value treats

My dog goes crazy for these stinky fish. They have been very helpful getting her used to the bathtub (now, she'll jump right in to get one).
