    Excellent for training and travel ration supplement

    Traveling for competitions with 2 active Wet Nosed teammates who rotate between raw and kibble-based meals at home, means finding dry foods that can travel without refrigeration. This stuff works GREAT as a raw topper, a high value treat, or a taste boost for home prepared meals.

This stuff works GREAT as a raw topper, a high value treat, or a taste boost for home prepared meals. The pieces vary in size, but they can easily be chopped smaller. When my younger fussy eater needs encouragement to consume a meal, I can add this stuff as a topper, and the bowl gets licked so clean you can almost see your reflection in the bottom! The pieces are somewhat greasy, so if you plan on using them for pocket-sized training treats, be sure to put them in a baggie first, to keep your clothing unstained (and prevent pocket nibble holes from those Wet Noses prowling the laundry for the source of that tasty aroma).

    Had high hopes...

    By PoodleLover on Sep 2, 2019

    This treats had so many great reviews, so I was let down after receiving the product. I needed a very tasty/high reward treat for practicing in public. These were not a big enough motivation like a couple of other treats. Did not smell yummy enough to the dogs like the other treats I have purchased before This treats had so many great reviews, so I was let down after receiving the product.

    Great for training

    By on

    These are great treats for training. The dogs love the smell and taste. Also I really like them because they are a good size for training treats for a medium to large dog. They are small but not so small that they get lost in a large dog's mouth.

    Much better than the small bag

    By on

    For whatever reason, this big bag looks to the exact same thing as the smaller option, but each treat is at least double the size. She loves these big ones and they’re definitely a great high reward treat. She likes many of their flavors, but this is a favorite.

    FAVORITE OF ALL

    By on

    This is the absolute favorite treat of all the dogs I know. Our two would do anything to get one. They are a bit large for training treats, but there are some smaller pieces.

    the one pound bag is a great value

    By on

    my dog loves these, super crunchy. i normally only feed her what i get at local farms and dehydrate for her myself. but this company sources ethically raised meat and raw dehydrates. they are a little bit stinky, but not bad at all considering it is tripe!

    Crunchy, stinky, perfect.

    By on

    One ingredient: beef tripe. The excellent quality makes me like it. It stinks a little and it's got the cronch, so my doggorino loves it. The big bag lasts a while and is totally worth it.

    My dog loves these treats!

    By on

    I have a fearful dog who is very young. We have been working with him on lots of things but one of our biggest issues is our ability to get him to focus. These treats have been a game changer for us. He knows when we say "tripe" that these treats are coming. We use them to calm him down, to counter condition, to desensitize and have also started using them to train him to be ok with nail trims and small body handling. We have a long way to go in his training, but we are happy we found these as they make our sessions a little easier.

    Dogs love the taste, they are bigger than I thought they would be

    By on

    I got these to try as training treats for my dogs, but they are too big to use for training. They are a little smaller than a tater tot. I like to use pea-sized treats for training. I am instead using these for a special, one off treat rather than in training sessions. I like knowing I am giving them healthy treats and my dogs love the taste. The consistency is hard, so they won't crumble in my pocket.
