doug – December 16, 2019:
My little service dog Cinnamon who just turned 15 in Oct 2019 absolutely loved these treats. Of course it might be my ADHD but i would buy 1 bag of each kind of dog treat & then mix them 2gether in a 2 or 2.5 gal baggie depending on what I had handy at the time. Obviously the large jerky pieces had to be cut down to size as well as the chicken & brown rice 4mula sticks etc. Everything was easy to break down in size except those chicken jerky strips. But that’s what HD scissors are for. And from there I’d put a handful in a quart baggie for easy carry convenience. I say all this bc even tho it’d be a surprise what I’d pull out each time, there was absolutely no doubt that she loved those hard chicken jerky chunks i cut from the strips… AND those hard chicken & cranberry recipe pieces. She might be old & missing her 4 front upper teet. But she still loves chewing… sometimes to her own demise as occasionally she’d yelp as she but something that might chip a tooth or cut her gums. But i used to buy a bag of those pig ears at Costco & i had enough difficulty trying to just cut a piece off w a tin snips or hacksaw. I’d no sooner give her a fairly good size chunk of pig ear & she’d turn around & look at me like “where’s the rest?” & I’d be like looking around thinking there’s no way she chewed thru all that in like a minute… until i actually watched her & sure enuff. That little Poodle Chihuahua Chinese Crested Powder Puff chewed thru that like it was butter!
Anyways getting back to the point of this review… I don’t know if you can imagine how disappointed I was when i came back to Trader Joe’s to refill on dog treats, only to find out that they stopped making these. No warning (that I was aware of… it would have been nice if they had a big sign “WE ARE NO LONGER GOING TO BE MAKING THIS.” That way I could’ve loaded up on them.
Oh well. They were gr8 while they lasted.
Not that bad
