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.
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.
Not sure if I will even use these,was disappointing that no where on the bag it says they are made in USA it does say distributed in Lehi UT that does not mean made just make me nervous giving my pup anything made in another country.If it’s made in USA it usually says it right on the bag,Majic word for me is. “ MADE”
I purchased these training treats to use with a newly adopted dog because they were recommended by the well-known trainer Zak George, on YouTube. My dog is quite indifferent to them. About half the time he ignores them or spits them out. Whereas five other brands from my local pet store work just fine. Also, these freeze dried treats tend to crumble into crumbs and become sticky in your hand from the moisture of the dog’s mouth. I’ve tried mixing them in with the other treats. My dog is quite disappointed when I produce any of these, so instead of rewarding and reinforcing a behavior, they are discouraging! The ones from the pet store are half the price, or less, when you factor in the shipping cost of these. I wanted these to work because of the ingredients. Lost faith in Zak George recommendations. Waste of money and negative effect on training sessions.
There is nothing wrong with these training treats they are perfectly fine however they're expensive and you're overspending on freeze dried beef livers. The price per ounce on training treats that are broken down into little nibble sizes like this are much more than if you were to buy say a bin of freeze dried beef livers that come in ice cube sized chunks. I found on Amazon Stewart brand which comes in what can only be described as a half gallon ice cream pail container with ice cube sized beef livers. You might say those are too big I need training sized pieces for my dog when we do training commands. To that I say you are exactly right, simply grab one ice cube sized Chunk from the bin and begin tearing training sized pieces off of it while doing a training session with your dog. You will find you can get about 15 to 20 chunks off of an ice cube which would be perfect for giving your dog a series of commands and rewarding them for it. You are saving money and my dog was much crazier about the Stewart brand I mentioned then with these little training treats.
I bought the sweet potato flavored treats for my dog because of the great reviews it received on Zak George's website. When it arrived, I gave the dog one and he spit it out. I tried again the next day to see if he had changed his mind, but that was not the case. So, I am out a great deal of money and am unable to donate the (full minus 2 treats) bag to any local rescue because of Coronavirus restrictions. On a brighter note, the dog will condescend to take the treat if I put peanut butter on it. My advice is: don't buy it until you can get one from someone else and try it out on your dog.
This was my second time buying Pupford training treats for my puppy. The first bag was great and smelled like chicken. This second bag I Had to throw away. It smelled rotten, like mold and fish, the treats also had black spots on them. Very disappointing.
Ordered the salmon ones to give my guys some variety. They are so lightweight, they crumble easily. And the smell is horrible. I guess I expected that freeze drying them meant they wouldn’t smell like a fresh piece of fish. My dogs, who eat everything spit them right out. I didn’t realize that while the other flavors have a return/replacement option, the salmon ones do not. Maybe because they know how awhile they are????
I would have loved to replace these awful smelling things with another flavor since I like that there are no added ingredients, but since I just wasted $15 for this bag and there is no replacement option, I’ll buy another brand.
