When you’re out shopping this holiday season you can’t forget to get something for your four-legged family members. They may not know what the holidays are but they do put up with us making those big meals and not sharing. So a treat here and there is always nice.
A great gift of stocking stuffer for your dogs are SmartSticks and SmartChips. They are made by SmartBones and they are a healthy snack and even better rawhide free!
Rawhide is a treat that people have been giving their dogs for years. But there are a lot of studies currently that show that it could be bad for your dog. If your dog chews rawhide and is a “safe chewer” than it’s not a problem. But not every dog is a safe chewer. We’ve had a dog have a piece break off and get lodged in her throat, which resulted in an emergency trip to the Pet ER. Since then – none of the dogs get Rawhide.
Since that incident we only give the dogs Rawhide free treats, and we’re always on the quest to find a new one that they all will like! So when SmartBones sent me a bag of SmartChips and SmartChips all of the girls were excited to try them!
Out of the three dogs, each one had a different preference. Bear is a silly dog and doesn’t quite “understand treats” but she enjoyed trying them (she’s a newer addition and rescue so she’s still learning. Kiki loved the peanut butter chips, and well Pudgy – she loved trying them both!
Besides all of the girls enjoying the treats – we enjoyed that they were a safe alternative to the rawhide treats they use to enjoy. They are similar shaped and texture, but we don’t have the worry of injury due to their treats.
What makes SmartBone’s products different?
- Great taste
- Safe rawhide-free
- Made with real, dried chicken breast
- Chewing activity promotes healthy dental care
- First chew of its kind to be fortified with vitamins and minerals
