We have a couple of goodies to share about today!
First of all, Chewy.com sent us some treats from The Honest Kitchen to try. Talk about your high value treats! These are high value not just to the pets, but to me. The ingredients list is something I look at first of all with treats. What is in The Honest Kitchen Wishes? Dehydrated Haddock. That’s it. It’s 100% wild caught haddock from Iceland.
That means these treats are grain free, free of additives and preservatives, high in protein, and low in fat (haddock is naturally low in fat). These are good size fillets, but they are crispy and easy to break into smaller pieces for training. What else do I love about these? They are for both dogs and cats!
I recently put them to the test when training with Luke, and when doing a photo session with Samantha for our #TeamCat #TheLucyBowl photos. They were a hit with both of them, and my photo shoot with Sam went much better than they usually do!
I worked with Luke on his “roll over” and these treats made a great lure. (We’re not doing so well with his roll over, I can’t get him any further than lying on his side. I’m not sure he’s going to be comfortable rolling onto his back, even though he often sleeps that way. We’ll keep working on it, and maybe try something else too to build his confidence more. I’m going to try to get his Dad to work with him as well, because he sometimes does better than I do!)
The only downside to these treats I could find was that, as expected, they are very fishy smelling! If that bothers you, you might not like working with them. I don’t mind it, I just wash my hands afterwards and the smell doesn’t linger.
*Disclaimer: We received one bag of Honest Kitchen treats from Chewy.com, but were in no other way compensated. Wag ‘n Woof Pets only shares products we feel will be of interest to our readers; our reviews are honest, and all opinions are our own.
What is Cricket wishing for in this photo?
She’s wishing that it would hurry up and be supper time so she can try some of this Merrick canned food! We want to say a huge thank you to Jessica and her beagle Luna at Beagles and Bargains. We recently won this food in her Stocking Stuffer giveaways over the holidays. The dogs love Merrick and I love all the different fun flavors, and the fact that it looks like real food. It’s not a pile of mush….it’s whole pieces of meats and vegetables in gravy, that looks good enough for even humans to eat (no, I didn’t try it though)! They had the Carver’s Delight the other night and loved it!
