Seriously, Beef Liver is Tasty!

chewy.comBeef liver may not be tasty for you or me, but my dogs sure do eat it up. Chewy.com sent over a tub of Evanger’s Nothing but Natural Beef Liver Gently Dried Dog & Cat Treats for us to try out with our two crazy doggies Clark and Miss Lady.

When I saw that it was beef liver flavor I am pretty sure my stomach turned a little bit thinking of liver. I’m just happy these are not for me to eat. They are a perfect size as a reward treat to use when practicing tricks or other training techniques. Both Clark and Miss Lady will sit very pretty for one of Evanger’s Nothing but Natural treats. I also like the tub that these treats came in. After these are out I plan on keeping the tub to use for other treats.

IMG_3884Clark and Miss Lady will most definitely be enjoying the rest of these treats while also getting a re-enforced education in sitting, laying down, and other standard dog tricks. I tried and failed many times trying to get a picture of the dogs practicing their sitting while waiting for a beef liver treat but just couldn’t get it to happen. Follow me on Instagram to catch a photo when I do get it.

There are more flavors than just the Beef Liver if that is not your thing. Check out Chewy’s website for more awesome Evanger’s Nothing but Natural Dog and Cat Treats. I can see these being a go to treat for training for any dog. I’m not sure about a cat because I don’t have one but comment below if you have any experience training cats. I have heard they are hard to train and really independent. So I am interested in your responses.

All in all you cannot go wrong with these treats. Clark and Miss Lady love a good treat and when I can get them to sit for one of these tasty beef liver treats.

National Pet Oral Health Care Month

chewy.comDid you know that caring for your pet’s dental hygiene is just as important as caring for your own? For your pets though it’s a bit easier than having them brush twice a day. Chewy is doing their part by spreading awareness for National Pet Oral Health Care Month. This month they have sent over a great product to try out with Clark and Miss Lady’s dental health.

IMG_3213Greenies Veterinary Dental Chews Large Dental Dog Treats have been a big hit with both of the dogs and us humans. Their breath usually is pretty stinky after they eat, so we gave them one of these after they ate and immediately I didn’t mind them breathing on me. I wouldn’t recommend it for long periods of time because their breath is still hot and slobbery. I love my dogs but I don’t love them breathing in my face. These Greenies make it just a little easier.

IMG_3009One thing you want to make sure with these kinds of treats is that your pups do not gulp them down. You will want to make sure they chew them up instead of eating them whole. Dog’s should never eat treats whole. They need to chew them up. If they are prone to gulping down treats you should probably talk to your vet about what your options are.

We like the Greenies brand, but really any brand that can help with your pet’s oral health is okay in my book. There are plenty of different treats that can easily help your pet. Just search Chewy.com for oral health!

From Chewy’s website.

Greenies Veterinary Large Dental Dog Treats help protect dogs from oral health issues and promote their overall health and wellness. These veterinary treats have a chewy texture that works with your large dog’s natural chewing action for optimal plaque and tartar reduction, and a unique shape that can be chewed at different angles for maximum tooth contact. Greenies Veterinary Dental Chews also feature a blend of highly soluble proteins, vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and chelated minerals, making them nutritionally complete for adult dogs.

Cookies and Stains

chewy.comThis month Chewy.com sent over two products that were well received in my house. The first item was Merrick’s Jerky Chip Treats. They are oven-baked cookies for dogs. We tried out the Real Beef Recipe with Miss Lady and Clark. Needless to say they really enjoyed the treats. I don’t think there is anything they won’t eat. We typically reward our dogs when they are being good. Such as when we are eating dinner. If they do not hound us for food and instead lay in another room, then we will reward them with a treat like these cookies.

I like the idea of the dog treats in the form of a cookie. They look a lot like the real deal, so much in fact we had to put these high up on the shelf so our kids did not see them. They do not know how to read yet, and because these look so much like cookies I know they would immediately want some. I am pretty sure if my daughter took a big bite out of one of these, she probably wouldn’t trust any cookie I give her. I wouldn’t blame her. These are definitely for dogs only.

IMG_4574The next item Chewy sent over was Rocco & Roxie Supply Co. Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator. Unfortunately our dogs have had accidents in the house in the past. We have gotten the carpets cleaned and we have even purchased our own steam cleaner. Surprisingly, it took me a few weeks before I even had a chance to use the spray. Which is a good thing. Nobody wants to clean their carpets from pet stains. Luckily, the bottle says that it has a”Natural bio-enzymatic formula, permanently eliminates pet urine odor”. So when I finally had the chance to try it out I was very surprised at how well it worked. The spray itself smelled pretty good. So I followed the directions and after 20 minutes I could not tell that Clark had left his business on my floor. That was the only chance I’ve had to use it, so a win for Miss Lady and Clark in that category.

It’s also a big win for Rocco & Roxie Supply Co. They have a nice spray here and I definitely recommend picking up a bottle if your pet has any indoor accidents. Chewy.com really has pretty much everything you need for your pet, and I want to hear about them. So be sure to comment below and tell us about your furry children!

A Chewy Knuckle

chewy.comWhen Chewy.com sent me the King size Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Chews Knuckle I was immediately impressed with this thing. It was huge. Larger than my fist. It came at a perfect time too. Clark, my boxer is significantly more active than Miss Lady my terrier mix. In my previous post I mentioned that our air conditioner went out and we had to have some gentlemen over to replace it. Clark loves to bark at strangers. It’s a good thing but can be very annoying when you have people coming in and out of the house.

IMG_4346We put Clark in his kennel along with the Knuckle. I did not hear a peep from Clark the entire time he was in there. All you could hear was him going to town on this bone. The Knuckle is highly recommended for keeping your dog busy when you need to get some stuff done. The best part about this product is that it lasted longer than a day. Both dogs enjoyed chewing on the Wilderness Knuckle for about a week.

The Knuckle itself is a beef bone with natural flavor. The packaging says Long Lasting Dog Chew and I have to say again that is definitely the case. This will be making the list of items to get for my doggies when it is time to pick up their treats!

Watch Clark go to town on his new bone!
