Benebone Bacon Flavored Wishbone Dog Chew Toy

We loved our Chewy.com treat of the month for November!!  

We received a Benebone Bacon Flavored Wishbone Dog Chew Toy!!  We've had a Benebone in the past, and it is my new favorite brand of chew toy!  So.. yes.. Gibson (and I) was excited...

Why do I love Benebones so much??  Well, for one, they last!  We got another one last year, and it is still around and in heavy rotation!  The ends look a little chewed up but that's it.   Plus, they are safe, don't smell or stain the carpet, and made in the USA!

Product Description
Benebone's Wishbone Chew isn't your dog's average chew toy. Made with real bacon and food-grade nylon, the ergonomic wishbone will keep your dog chewing and each prong has deep flavor grooves to keep him interested. As if that wasn't enough, with your purchase you'll also be supporting animal welfare nationwide as a portion of all Benebone sales are donated to animal support organizations!
Key Benefits
  • Made with real bacon
  • Flavor is infused throughout the entire product
  • No artificial flavor
  • Great for teething puppies
  • Made in the USA
  • Benebone is best suited for dogs under 70 pounds
Caution: Benebones are not edible.

So, yes, I love these chews and highly recommend them!!

Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Chews Wolf Size Beef Tendons Dog Treats

Time for my Chewy.com treat of the month review!  I apologize in advance for the crappy cell phone pics.  I mentioned that we are in the process of moving.. well we are in an apartment currently, but 75% of or stuff is still packed away and I couldn't find my camera charger!  Found it finally, but after the fact.. pfft!  We bought a house too!  Moving in next weekend!  Cannot wait!!

ANYWAYS! This month's treat.. Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Chews..  Wolf Size Beef Tendons! You may have seen this video on my Facebook Page teasing these treats and showing how excited Gibson was about them:

Gibson was super excited about his Chewy.com treat this month! More on what it was later..
Posted by Corgi Butts on Saturday, August 29, 2015
Well this is what made him soo excited!

These are a great sized dog chew. Made in the USA and all natural.  Here's what Blue Buffalo says about them:

Blue Wilderness Wild Chews Beef Tendons are made to satisfy your dog’s most primitive instinct: his instinct to chew. Made from dried beef tendons, these long-lasting chews are: 100% natural, cleaned and sealed for your pet’s safety.
Key Benefits
  • 100% natural
  • Cleaned and sealed for your pet’s safety
  • Made to support healthy teeth and gums
  • Robust enough to stand up to hours of chewing enjoyment
  • Measures 5 inches

It was love at first sight for Gibson...

Hadley really wanted in on the action...

Here she is giving him his treat and him enjoying it!

She thought it was so fun watching him.. haha

It took him a good 5 minutes to finish the chew.. which isn't bad. But  I wouldn't compare them to a true long-lasting chew.  Plus, there are only about 5 chews in the package for not a cheap price.  But they did make Gibson super happy.. I think for a once a week or month special treat, they are worth it!

Natural Balance Dental Dog Chews

Wayyy back in June, I received this Chewy.com treat of the month! Been a bit busy since then.  We moved to a different state and sold our house!  Now we are looking for a new one.. ooof!  ANYWAYS.. finally getting to my June review.. sorry Chewy!

I was sent these awesome Natural Balance Dental Chews for Gibson to try out.  They were Pumpkin & Chicken Meal (gotta go with anything pumpkin!).   Plus, Anything that will clean Gibson's teeth gets a thumbs up from me!

Product Description

Natural Balance Dental Chews are scientifically formulated to encourage your dog's natural chewing instinct, to help support healthy teeth and gums. This delicious mix of flavors, including savory ingredients like pumpkin and papaya, makes for a great taste your dog will love!
Key Benefits
  • Grain-free formula
  • Unique grooves help reduce plaque & tartar
  • Formulated to support easy chewing & digestion
  • Helps freshen your dog's breath
  • Antioxidant nutrients to support immune function

It was no surprise that Gibson loved these chews.  For one, they are a bit bigger than his normal treats, so that made him do a happy dance every time.  Plus, I think the texture is fun for him.  Kind of like an edible chew toy.

I love that they are grain free! A lot of dental chews are not, so it's a big plus!  Highly recommend. You can get them here! http://www.chewy.com/dog/natural-balance-dental-chews-pumpkin/dp/101762

FURminator Dual Brush For Dogs

My Chewy.com review last month was for a FURminator Dual Brush For Dogs!


I wanted to try it because Gibson really does not like getting brushed with deshedding brushes, so I thought I'd try something more gentle...


Test #1: He let Hadley brush him with it! OMG I was sold right there!  (it could have been because of the breadstick in her hand, but whatever!)

I then saw, of course, that this brush is meant for dogs with short/silky coats.  Whoops, that's definitely not corgis!  But on to Test #2:


After bath brushing!  Look at all that fluff!  I held Gibson down and brushed him like crazy with this new brush.  It took awhile, but he looked a lot better than when I started! And he didn't try to run away as much as with the original FURminator.


So, I think this would work better for short/silky hair dogs, but if your dog is super sensitive, like mine, this is a good alternative brush when you don't need to get tons of undercoat out :)

Earth Rated® Pet Waste Bags & Dispenser GIVEAWAY!

Let's talk about something that all dog owners have to deal with... Poop clean-up! We all have to do it.. and I, for one, am kind of picky about the bags I use to get the job done.  I HATE using plastic grocery bags from the store.. they're way too big and you never know if there is a random hole in it!   And what about when you forget a bag? I have gotten pretty creative at times.. lol

Well, needless to say, I was super excited when I got the opportunity to do a review and giveaway of Earth Rated® Pet Waste Bags and Dispenser!

I really like these bags! And LOVE the dispenser!!  They are a perfect size, tear apart easily and are a good neutral color (bonus points for matching my leash perfectly!).  The dispenser hangs on my leash nicely and doesn't come apart or fall off like other dispensers I've tried.


And I love the little hanger to hang your 'used' bags on while you walk. Genius!!


I got the lavender scented bags, and I really like the scent!  I've tried some scented bags that are too overwhelming or have a strange film on the bags that irritate my hands.. these did neither!

All in all, I really like these poop bags and think you will too!

My Chewy.com Treats of the Month are Canidae Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits with Duck & Chickpeas

Gibson was licking his lips in anticipation...

When CANIDAE's nutritional specialists created these new grain and gluten-free recipes, they didn’t stop at the basics. This unique duck and chickpeas recipe also features wholesome sesame seeds, nutritious avocado oil, and extraordinary turmeric. And they easily snap in half so you can treat dogs of all breeds and sizes or use as a training reward! Healthy CANIDAE biscuits also clean teeth and freshen breath. Spend some quality time with your best friend and give them these great-tasting 100% grain-free snacks from CANIDAE.

Dogswell Vitality Duck Jerky Strips Dog Treats

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


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:

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.

  • 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

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.

Merrick Texas Toothpicks Dog Treats

My December treats of the month from Chewy.com 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!
