Chicken Meat Balls DOG TREATS – road tested by Archie VIDEO
Lovely dog treats chicken meatballs Dog Treats looks deceptively like dog kibble.
The dramatic difference is that while dog kibble usually has 30 – 40% meat in it, these chicken dog treats have up to 80% meat.
It just so happened that while I was video this dog treat eating session with Archie, there was a perfectly still golden sunset, much like the colour of the dog treats. I enjoy just watching the video for therapeutic reasons as much as it is instructional.
The first thing to know about meat is that it has a much more complete and high amino acid (protein) profile than any vegetable source. Dogs are carnivores and need meat in their diet, and the absence of it can be made up in partly by feeding a high quality high meat source like chicken dog treats.
You will see that unlike many supermarket treats (that are full of wheat) these dog treats tend not to break up and crumble. They are also hard enough that a dog like mine needs to chew a few times before they can swallow it, promoting a healthy jaw.
Of course if your dog loves chicken then these chicken meatballs are ideal. They are also available in a fairly big size for the small packs coming in at 250g, or the kilo bags.
Some of the uses for them include. As a dry snack on the go or as a training treat. Not suitable if you have a show dog and you need instant gratification.
However they are also great if you are teaching recall or other such things where you want your dog to sit down, use the 3-4 seconds it takes for them to mentally process what they have been asked to do, then go.
To avoid separation anxiety, some people use treat balls. That is all well and good, but why not put something healthy inside of them, so that when they do get the treat out, they are actually rewarded with something good? Not a veggie based processed piece of garbage.
You can either buy the 250g or the kilo pack on this site, and hopefully your dog enjoys them as much as my fastidious eater Archie does.
