To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’ve bought 3 bags. In general, I very much like the sweet potato product. That said, I have one HUGE complaint: many Pupford bags have large amounts of broken up pieces of sweet potato. I mean is slivers and powder. To Pupford management — that MUST change.
My corgi puppy loves these training treats (beef liver) and they are one of the few brands I've seen where I don't have to spend time cutting or ripping apart bigger chunks of liver. That said, because of that standardized cube size, these treats are more expensive so I'd think about if that time saved is worth it for you. Soak well in water, broth, or milk if you're looking for a softer treat but I've forgotten these in my pocket a couple of times and they hold up pretty well! No crumbly mess. I concur with going through 1.5 - 2 bags of these a month easily if you're super serious about training (and that's with me using kibble/other treats at the same time). As for the sweet potato since Amazon won't let me write a second review, puppy will eat them when hungry but they are nothing special to her. She'd rather eat her kibble so the sweet potato treats have turned into an occasional food topper instead. I won't be buying the sweet potato again but we've been through 3 bags of the liver! 3 stars for Sweet Potato. 4 stars for Beef Liver.
I purchased the sweet potato, salmon, and beef liver treats. All of which my dog goes nuts for and is an excellent training treat thats high value. Only complaint is the salmon and beef liver treats aren't actually "freeze dried" like they claim to be. It's not listed in the ingredients as freeze dried(the sweet potato is listed as freeze dried and truly is freeze-dried) but instead its more of like a dog biscuit consistency training treat, very crunchy not very "spongy and disintegrating" like a true freeze dried beef liver. Not fully a complaint because they are still a very high value easy to train with treat, but just misleading.
My 10-month lab puppy eats pretty much everything from different meats to various veggies. Tried to feed her two pieces of treats before the meal after our daily routine walk, she won't even eat them. I waited for a little bit and tried again, same, she just not a fan. I had seemed much success with other dogs, unfortunately, I donated the whole bag away. In addition, the company responded to my request for refound, they sent out a replacement with a different flavor. They were kind and understanding. My pup tried the chicken flavor today, she hesitated for a while, and eventually took it. Maybe it's just not the right treatment for her. Thankful for the company's effort in supporting their customers.
My dogs loved these. The big problem is there are much cheaper options that your dog will like as much. I now get the stewart freeze dried 100% liver treats (I do have to cut into smaller pieces because these chunks ARE large) for a fraction of price. But keep in mind these have to be cut to be small training bites...
These are great for training, they are small enough so you don't feel bad for over treating during training time. I went through them far to fast though, I have 2 young dogs in training. I am going to try and make my own treats just because I already spend so much on these two already.
Puppy loves this treat!! He was excited to learn new tricks knowing he’d get these treats! I’d give it 5 stars if the price was a little lower. Seems expensive yet glad to buy a couple times to ensure my puppy knows the important command words and tricks
Zak George shilled this to me in a YouTube video and I thought they were reasonably priced so I bought a pack. My new puppy really responds to them. Currently using them as a mid-high value treat when training and they work exactly as I would hope.
UPDATED: I've learned that these are not that reasonably priced. I've also learned that the formula and overall design of the treat is much different from that of the ZG videos. Harder to vouch for the quality of the treat now.
My dog hasn't been picky with treats, except for these treats. She has other salmon treats that act as high value, but if there are a lot of distractions then these treats will not be enough. I use these in the house only but I love how many treats you get in a bag and it's easy to put a few in your pocket and not get squished. I would try the beef or chicken flavor before the salmon.
Not sure on taste and scent, but my dog loves them! Bits are a little small for a larger dog, and too high priced for the amount you get, found something that my dog loves just as much at the store with a better price for quantity.
