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 ordered these a while back after seeing them on Zack George's YouTube. My first order was great, my new puppy loved them and they were not too filling. Old formula/ingredients are pictured on the Right. I reordered them and recieved the product on the Left. The new formula/ingredients are pictured on the Left. As you can see they are noticeably different products. The product on the Right definitely looked freeze-dried and was light and the ingredients even said they were freeze dried. The new product that I received on the Left does not say freeze dried on the list of ingredients as the old one did. It does describe the item on the front label as being freeze-dried. This is very confusing to me, not sure what I'm even getting....is this freeze dried?It sure doesn't look freeze dried. Especially compared to the old formula. Puppy did not like them and not as easy to train with since they are a chewy consistency and don't look very high quality. Disapointed as I liked using the old treats for training and my pup loved the old formula. NO GO on the new formula/ingrediants had to RETURN.
These treats are tiny squares. My puppy weighs 5 lbs and I had to give her at least 4 treats for her to notice she was getting anything. This is dried liver and disintegrates quickly. Therefore a lot of the treats ended up as powder in the bottom of the bag. Don’t buy this. Actually, I’ve stopped spending $32 a pound for freeze dried liver, dog treats and have started drying liver at home. I paid $5 for enough beef liver to make 11 ozs when dried. My dog loves the home made treats and I love the price. There are videos on UTube detailing the process. Give it a try.
We bought these on recommendation from Zac George You tube videos. To be honest, we got so much out of Zac's videos that I wanted to make the purchase only to somehow support Zac. We got our puppy one week ago today and our minigoldendoodle LOVES them! He has learned to sit, lay down and stand all with treating him with the Pupford treats. I feel good giving them to Gunner because of the nutrition and low calories. He loves them and responds very well to them. We also give him one after he goes potty. I would heartily recommend these treats to all dog owners!
Love these in some ways - great size though I still cut then up for my puppy. I use the dust to charge up the kibble for training treats. These really make him perk up and have helped with his training. Cons - super expensive! 4oz for $16 when you can get 21oz for $30?!
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.
These are not cheap training treats - and for a good reason. Bought these based on a recommendation by Zak George. These are considered high-value treat rewards in our household. Have a high-activity Aussiedoodle puppy at just about 6 months age. When these training treats come into play... you have full blown puppy attention. Will keep buying! Use these to alternate between cheaper or less high-value reward, to help make these treats last longer!
My Vet told me that a freeze dried Kidney treat would be best, and that I would "own" him with this type of treat in training. He was right, my dog is very food motivated and can't wait until I get home from work to treat him after practicing and learning a new trick at the end of the day
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 think the title for this product is misleading. It states (Comes in beef liver & sweet potato) (Sweet potato)...Shown exactly as listed on ad. If you buy many dog treats you know they often blend products together. So when I read this, I took it as the first one being beef liver & sweet potato and the second one being sweet potato only. What it turns out to be is you can get beef liver OR sweet potato only. When I reached out to Pupford regarding this confusing title, they basically responded with no they are two separate products and that was it. Since I started to open the package when they came, they can’t be sent back for an exchange or refund. I thought at $15.99 these were a bit pricey but was willing to give them a try. Since our dogs don’t like the flavor of these treats, (first time I’ve ever seen one of my dogs spit out a treat) it turns out to be a really over priced item for us. Hopefully someone at the local dog shelter will like them. Word to the wise...Be sure to read the description a thoroughly and no relying on titles/descriptions.
