  • Maybe for your dogs, but none of mine would eat

    By on

    I can say that these are a pretty obviously one ingredient treat, which is a plus especially if you have a dog with allergies...... however 2/3rds of my dogs wouldn't eat them. One buried it in blankets (gross), one left the room (without the minnow), and other hesitated and then eventually ate it. Even the one that ate it wasn't SUPER pumped about eating it. I wouldn't buy again, simply because no one here likes them enough for me to be willing to touch them. In fairness, I bought them knowing they'd be a gamble as they're "weird".

  • Better size for the price than cat version

    By on

    Maybe my cats are monsters, but they eat these slightly larger minnows from the dog version (it's a better price point) just as well as the smaller minnows in the cat version of these treats. They don't smell terrible in the cupboard or anything like that, which is what I was afraid might happen. I keep them either in the original bag, or if the cats rip that up, in a mason jar. No issues.

  • A Whole Fish!

    By on

    Emma (yorkie) likes these a lot. I have to be very careful what I feed her, she eats raw, now I'm not going to give her junk for treats. Vital Essentials fits the bill for treats and the minnows were kind of a delight, she usually eats rabbit and beef.

  • Highest value treats

    By on

    These are my dog's favorite treats. They've potty trained him, crate trained him, and gave him a great recall. We use them when we are training challenging new behaviors.

  • Doggie crack!

    By on

    My dogs can't get enough of these. While they initially grossed me out a bit, my dogs go nuts and line up to get one every time they hear the bag rustle. A great snack for good behavior!

  • My cats love these things!

    By on

    These minnows are like crack cocaine to my cats, but this crack is very useful. If I want the kitties to come in, I just say, "Fish!" and they come running at warp speed. :-)

    My of my cats is obsessed with this treat! She meows at us hoping to get more. So I order it regularly. I am so happy that Chewy carries this product because it's cheaper than pet store.

  • My dog doesn't eat it raw.

    By on

    When I gave it to him, he smelled and ran away. He's never had raw food before so I decided to put it in the oven and toasted it for about 5-7 minutes. He then ate it.

  • Single Ingredient Treats

    By on

    My pug loves these and I'm always looking for new single ingredient dog treats to keep my dog happy. These fish treats do not smell horrible like some of the others and they are also not as messy as some of the other fish treats.
