Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy

Gibson and I absolutely loved our treat of the month!  Well, this time it wasn't exactly a treat.. It was a dental chew!DSC_8636

Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy to be exact ;)  I've seen these around and have always been curious about them, so I jumped at the opportunity to review one.


It's basically a Nylabone, but shaped like a dinosaur with little nubs all over to help clean teeth and also has a minty scent to freshen breath! Here is what Nylabone has to say about them:

If there's one thing brave pups wish they still had a chance to chase, it's a dinosaur! The Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy is one tough toy that's able to stand up to tons of chewing. It has raised, rounded nubs that help clean teeth and the clean scent freshens breath. Best of all… Dino Dog Toys don't bite back!
Key Benefits
  • Made for dogs up to 50 lbs
  • Chew will be shipped in Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus or T-Rex shape (chosen at random)
  • Fun shape keeps pets entertained
  • Freshens breath
  • Vet-recommended for clean teeth and gums
  • Made in USA


Gibson loves it and has added it to his rotation of favorite chews. And I love anything that will help keep his teeth clean!!

Dogswell Vitality Duck Jerky Strips Dog Treats

This month, I received Dogswell Vitality Duck Jerky Strips Dog Treats from!


I've always been a fan of Dogswell products, which is why I chose these!  They use healthy ingredients and usually have an added health benefit in them.  These particular treats help maintain eyes, skin & coat!


From Dogswell:

Want to know why Dogswell calls them Jerky Strips? Because they're stripped down to just the good stuff! No bad stuff, just healthy awesome ingredients. These soft strips of drool worthy cage-free duck are made with a limited number of healthy ingredients. Soft, slim and easy to tear, they're perfect for dogs of all sizes and ages. If only humans had it so good. It's okay if you're a little jealous.
Key Benefits
  • Grain and gluten-free treats
  • Flaxseed and vitamins A & E to maintain eye, skin and coat health
  • Good source of protein
  • No corn, wheat or soy
  • No artificial colors, favors or preservatives


The 5oz bag contained about a dozen jerky strips, which is not bad for the cheap price tag.   They are a good sized treat and definitely something for a special occasion or reward.


Gibson absolutely loved them as he does all jerky type treats :)  And I love that they have added vitamins to keep him healthy! Definitely recommend!

Merrick Texas Toothpicks Dog Treats

My December treats of the month from were Merrick Texas Toothpicks Dog Treats!

Look how great they look w/the Christmas tree ;)

I chose them because of the promise to keep teeth and gums clean (which Gibson can always use extra help with).  Plus, they are 100% natural and sourced from the USA.  AND only 1 ingredient: Beef Tail.


Here's what Merrick had to say about them:

Howdy, partner. Rawhide! When it's time to throw your best buddy a special treat, reach for a bag of toothpicks. These puffy-textured Texas Toothpicks Rawhide Dog Treats from Merrick are made from pure beef tail and provide both a crunchy and chewy treat for your pup to enjoy. They're perfect for any aged dog and contain no artificial preservatives, colors, or ingredients.
Key Benefits
  • Contains a minimum of 50% crude protein
  • No artificial colors means less mess when he slobbers
  • Satisfying, crunchy and chewy treat
  • Good dog treat for healthy gums and teeth


They are pretty good sized.  Some are a lot bigger than other, which is nice, since sometimes I only want to give Gibson a little treat. A lot more come in the bag than I expected.  A month later, I still have some left!


Gibson absolutely goes nuts for these.   His nub wiggles like crazy and and zooms off to the living room to eat them :)  A great treat to add to your repertoire!

TropiClean Fresh Breath + Plus Hip & Joint Dental Dog Treats

Love these!!  TropiClean Fresh Breath + Plus Hip & Joint Dental Dog Treats were my review for November.  So awesome!


Dental chews + hip & joint support??!  Plus gluten, grain, corn & wheat free??  Whoever thought of these is a genius.


I couldn't have received these at a better time.  Gibson had just had a vet's appointment where his teeth were less than stellar and he had a limping thing going on.  The vet suggested upping his brushing (i'm so bad at remembering) and putting him on a glucosamine supplement.  So basically, I got a 2 for 1 in these chews!  Score! (yes, I have been brushing his teeth also and he takes a glucosamine pill daily)


They are the perfect size chew for corgis.  Not too big, not too small.  They have nice ridges to help remove plaque and I really have noticed better breath!!


AND most importantly.. Gibson loves them!!!  Every single time he got one, he did his happy dance through the house.  Going to have to get more of these for sure! :)

Grandma Lucy's Organic Pumpkin Oven Baked Dog Treats

Time for the treat of the month review!  This month, I chose  Grandma Lucy's Organic Pumpkin Oven Baked Dog Treats because I thought they sounded delicious :)  I love everything pumkin!  Yes, I am that girl ;)


Gibson was excited and posed nicely with these.  It is a HUGE bag for pretty cheap! Right now, a 14oz bag is on sale for only $5.79!  Great deal considering these are little treats. More on that later...


Like most dog treats I review, these are All Natural and made with the highest-quality ingredients for dogs.  Here's what Grandma Lucy's has to say about them:
Grandma Lucy’s organic dog treats are not made in a factory but baked in a bakery by people who love their pets. Since 1999, Grandma Lucy’s has taken great pride in making wholesome, natural and delicious pet treats. Your dog will love the great taste of these Organic Oven Baked Dog Treats, but what you will love most is the fact that they are made with organic, human-quality ingredients for dogs. The treats are so tasty, your dog will beg for more. Grandma Lucy’s Organic Oven Baked Dog Treats ~ an organic treat you will feel good about giving your pet.

  • 100% USDA Organic, USA originated ingredients
  • Oven baked
  • Human-grade ingredients
  • No by-products, artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors
  • Certified kosher
  • Made in the USA!

I think the best thing about these treats is that they look like Teddy Grahams for dogs!  They are super adorable, aren't they?? Opening up the bag, you can see just how many treats you get! I usually give these as a training treat since they are on the small size.. or when Gibson doesn't really NEED a treat, but is giving me those eyes.. You know the ones ;)  I don't feel guilty about giving him something small and he enjoys the little treat :)


All-in-all, cute and healthy dog treats!

Merrick Seasonal Grain-Free Homecoming Holiday Recipe Canned Dog Food

It's time for a review!  This month, we tested out Merrick Seasonal Grain-Free Homecoming Holiday Recipe Canned Dog Food.


I thought it'd be a nice treat for Gibson, since we usually stick to the same type of dry dog food for every meal.   The Homecoming Holiday flavor sounded great with the holidays coming up!


The ingredient list is pretty good. Standard (dog safe) soup ingredients and it's grain free!


Here's what Merrick had to say about it:
Everyone loves to return home for the holidays - even your pup! Homecoming Holiday is a tasty recipe with chicken, sweet potatoes, peas and butternut squash in gravy.
Key Benefits
  • Grain-free recipe
  • Natural food with added vitamins and minerals
  • Great for all life stages and breeds
  • Made in the USA!

When I opened the can, I thought it did indeed look like soup.. it smelled like it too! I was tempted to try some.  Gibson smelled something  yummy too....


It said to feed a 25lb dog 2 cans a day, so I went ahead and poured the entire can into his dog bowl (those blue things are part of his 'slow down bowl'


He gobbled it up and spent like 20 minutes licking every bit off the bottom of the bowl.  Definite winner from Merrick!!

The Honest Kitchen Wishes Dehydrated Pure Iceland Haddock Fillets Dog & Cat Treats

Time for the review of the month!

This month, I chose The Honest Kitchen "Wishes" - Pure Iceland Haddock Fillets


These treats are exactly what the name says. 100% Dehydrated Haddock.  I love dog treats that only have a few ingredients, so I was intrigued!

They pieces of fish come in a variety of sizes, which is nice if you want to give your dog a lot or a little.  And they are also easily broken apart if you'd rather only give a taste at a time.

Here's what The Honest Kitchen had to say about them:
Wishes are suitable for both cats and dogs, and can be used as a general reward or training aid. Made with 100% wild-caught Haddock from Iceland using sustainable fishing practices. They’re grain-free, delicious and perfect for sensitive pets who suffer from allergies or intolerance to certain foods such as grains and proteins. Wishes come in large, dehydrated fillets – they can be snapped into smaller pieces for your dogs or cats.
Key Benefits
  • Gourmet treats suitable for both cats and dogs
  • Made with just one pristine ingredient!
  • Popular with even the fussiest hounds
  • Grain-free & Gluten-free makes it perfect for pets with sensitive stomachs
  • Made in a human food facility with 100% human-grade ingredients in the USA!


The verdict?? Googly eyes of course ;)  Gibson thinks they are the greatest thing on the planet!!


I, on the other hand, forgot I have a serious sensitivity to all things that smell 'fishy'.. and these are almost gag-inducing.. ooof!   Every time I'd open the bag to give him a treat, my whole kitchen would smell like fish.  So, I think these are a great treat, overall, but I wish they came in some other flavor.. like chicken? For those of you that that don't mind the smell of fish, enjoy! :)
