Embracers Sara, Adrienne and Jenna have had their dogs doing some taste testing for FreshPet, a "fresh" alternative to your average dog diet. The Dog Joy treat taste tests have gone over quite well! From Jenna and Hazel:
Umm yeah Hazel thought they were awesome, (but she isn’t really a dog with discriminating tastes). I have, however, used the soft chicken treats as pill sneakers! Hazel is a complete butt about taking pills, she can find them and spit them out of anything, but she likes the fresh pet treats so much she just swallowed it whole! Additionally, my cat Harry was also a big fan of the chicken treats…and he is picky. He actually got up out of a nice, bright ray of sun to check them out- that is huge for him!
I am always looking for good nutritious treats to give to my Pomeranian, Andre that don’t contain a lot of grains and fillers. The FreshPet chicken and sweet potato treats fit the bill in this category! Andre loved them and now always follows me to the refrigerator just in case it might be time for a treat for him! He seems to get more excited for the chicken, so he may prefer those over the sweet potato.
The only thing I noticed is that the sweet potato treats are very large – too large to give whole to a toy size dog – and they are not easy to tear into smaller pieces. I actually had to take them and cut them up with a knife into appropriate sized pieces for Andre. So perhaps some size selections would be good for the sweet potato treats. The chicken are very easy to tear into a smaller piece if you don’t want to give the entire treat to your dog at that time. The size of the chicken treats are also great for carrying in a treat bag with you for training purposes. They don’t fall apart either, so you won’t end up with a pocket full of treat crumbs.
