February review and giveaway

This month, Chewy sent us a package of treats from Wysong.  Wysong is a USA company known for their holistic recipe pet foods developed by in-house pet health doctorate professionals and made with ingredients from USDA and FDA approved domestic sources.  They donated generously to our 4-H Dog Training Club so they must be good people!

We were sent Wysong Dream Treats to test out this month.  We got the chicken variety but they also offer rabbit and quail.  I don't know how they knew but as soon as I brought in the box the postman had left, the dogs were ALL over me.  No need for a taste test with these treats, the dogs were going crazy before I even ripped open the well-sealed package.   And the reason for their excitement?  These treats are MEATY!  Here's the ingredients list:

Ingredients: Chicken, Chicken Organs, Ground Chicken Bone, Natural Flavor, Taurine, Organic Blueberry, Organic Barley Grass, Chia Seeds, Broccoli Sprouts, Carrots, Plums, Whey, Sea Salt, Dried Kelp, Yeast Extract, Citric Acid, Mixed Tocopherols, Rosemary Extract, Yeast Culture, Minerals (Potassium Chloride, Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Sulfate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate), Calcium Carbonate, Vitamins (Ascorbic Acid [source of Vitamin C], Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Folic Acid), Dried Bacillus licheniformis Fermentation Product, Dried Aspergillus oryzae Fermentation Product, Dried Aspergillus niger Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus faecium Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus casei Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bacillus subtilis Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus plantarum Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus lactis Fermentation Product. 

So basically chicken meat and bones, ground up and dehydrated into airy little pucks. The texture is kind of like dehydrated liver treats, kind of crumbly and easily broken into little pieces.  The dogs LOVED them!  They worked well for training but don't hold up on a pocket so you have to keep going back for another little disc every once in a while.  They got Dot as excited as she gets for nuked hotdogs, which is what I use when I want the MOST action and enthusiasm out of her in obedience.  Dream Treats ranked very high with both dogs and the ingredients I feel very good about giving to both DOT (grain allergies and super sensitive tummy) and Taco.

Disclosure: Chewy.com provided me with one package of Fromm Chicken with Carrots & Peas treats to review.  I was not compensated in any other way and the opinions are all mine and the dogs'.  :)
