It occurred to me this morning, as I was looking through Chloe’s pantry for treats that would work well on a walk, that we have a wide variety of treats but only some of them pack well. Chloe loves Etta Says! meaty treats, PureBites freeze-dried treats and Stella & Chewy’s Carnivore Crunch treats, for example, but none of them breaks into smaller pieces well (they crumble instead) — and for the same reason, they don’t travel well. She also loves New Zealand Real Meat jerkey treats and Wellness Pure Rewards jerky treats, but they’re borderline — they break apart into small-dog-sized bites, which is great, but they’re a bit fragile for packing.
When I’m packing treats for Chloe, I reach for Merrick lamb lung filet squares (be sure to get the flat filets, not the lamb puffs, because they can easily be broken apart into small bits). I also reach for Zuke’s Mini Naturals (which are really a bit too big for Chloe, but can be broken in half with your fingernail) and Zuke’s Z-Filets, which are excellent. Finally, I always pack some flavor of Buddy Biscuits (the Soft & Chewy ones, though Chloe also likes the crunchy Itty Bitty Buddy Biscuits).
Have I missed your dog’s favorite treat? Let me know — no doubt Chloe will want to check them out!
