Our latest product to review comes from Natural Pet Warehouse. We decided to try Herbsmith Smiling Dog Freeze Dried Dog Treats.
These are sure some pretty fancy treats! The ingredients list consists simply of chicken, apples, and spinach and the treats are completely raw. Now let's see if my dogs are sophisticated enough to enjoy them!
Now as you know Fozzie has made progress in his reactivity, but I still tend to avoid dog-heavy trails with him and make sure that wherever we go, we have some really good treats to distract and reward for calm behavior when we do see another dog.
And still, I find that some situations--where the dog gets too close before I can get away, or where the other dog has big ears like an Akita or Husky, or where the other dog is reacting too--are too upsetting for Fozzie and he can't settle down even with most treats.
So it's a great situation for testing out the value of a new treat.
And let me tell you, these Herbsmith Freeze-Dried Dog Treats really packed some value for my dogs. Even with other dogs nearby both Fozzie and Lamar took notice when I stuffed these treats in their faces.
Though both my dogs enjoy treats of all kinds, the zeal with which they went for these treats was unusual.
There was an eagerness, and attentiveness, and a gleam in their eyes that you just don't see with the usual hot dogs or cheese cubes.
I was surprised! I mean, how delicious can a freeze-dried raw wafer of apple, spinach, and chicken really be?
Pretty delicious, according to my panel of experts.
