Has anyone used this? I bought a bag of the dehydrated "surf'n'turf" patties. I was getting annoyed at the crappy nutrition quality of the treats that are available. I thought, if I need to give this many treats to groom/walk/train him I need to make sure they are actually offering something nutritionally. I got a sample patty of the stella and chewy's & he went insane for it (also because it was new). So Archer is now getting Acana kibble plus treats, and I think these dehydrated patties, since they are meant to be for meals, are good treats, and just as easy to break into pieces as smaller treats you still have to break up anyway. He has also recently developed a strong affinity for apple pieces, so that's another better option for treats.
Anyway. I have like 8 bags of treats and I used to think I might have a problem, but I actually need the variety to keep the interest up during walks and training, and it's nice to keep around for clients as sometimes just changing to a different treat can save a session.
I've used Stalla and Chewy's for treats too. Kodi loves them! I found with Stella and Chewy's there were a lot of crumbs produced when I broke them up. Kodi was absolutely FINE with me adding these to his dinner, but that wasn't my original plan!
Try Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Bites too. They are also freeze dried raw, can be used as a meal or a mixer, AND are small pieces already, so they don't require breaking up. If these were commercial "treat food treats", I'd want to break them smaller, but because they are good nutrition, I don't mind that they are a little larger. (they are about the size of Zuke's minis, which I generally break in half) But you CAN break them with little waste if you want to.
Also, if Archer is showing a liking for fruit, trie blueberries. Kodi goes NUTS for them!!! )
I find that Kodi needs a rotating variety of treat food when we're training too. Use anyone thing for too long, and it becomes, "THAT again?"
