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.
At first impression the package seemed smaller than I expected. That was my fault since I didn't look before buying and I am happy to spend money on quality treats. What did bother me, however, was opening the package (liver variety) , sticking my hand inside and finding a greasy fat blob mess. The lard (I think) is all over the treats and made many of them soft and gooey. Not exactly what I am looking for in a freeze dried training treat. Since I can't be sure what the stuff is, I am not going to give any to my dogs. I plan to return because I don't want to put anything like that in the treat pouch either since it would get all over the other treats, my hands, and the inside of the pouch. I also ordered the chicken ones. Those were dry and without the lard-y stuff so I gave a couple to my dogs and they seem to think they are just fine.
These are way over priced and were so not worth it. I was so excited to train my puppy with these after seeing all the reviews and recommendations. But the bag I received had rock hard pieces that I couldn’t break and my dog could not really chew up. We had to take 30 second breaks between each command for him to try to break apart the solid chunk and then eventually soften it enough to swallow it whole. The only positive was that he seemed to love the flavor. Very disappointed
Dog refuses to eat them, just keeps spitting them out. This dog will eat anything to leaves, moss bugs. Lol literally anything. I like that the only ingredient is chicken wish she liked it. But it was a waist of money for me. The whole time I’ve been writing this review she keeps grabbing the 3 pieces I gave her and spitting them out. I gave 2 stars instead of one for the healthiness of the treat.
I purchased these training treats after seeing Zac George promote them On his show. I honestly don't mind spending the money for a good night value treat that supports a small business. I have given my 5 month old puppy these several times with other training treats as a high value training treat. several times she has thrown them up and I noticed they do not break down in her system. When she poops they come out whole, which is not a good thing. At this point I can not recommend them.
I had purchased before from the company directly and it was just fine my pup love it. This time around we purchased from amazon and the treat was weird it felt hard and EVERY TIME my pup had a couple 3 to 5 mnt later she will be throwing up. Not happy ☹️
My 1 yo Golden Retriever, who has trained very well on Blue Buffalo and other treats, absolutely hates these things. I know that all dogs are different and some dogs may like them, but my dog literally spits them out. If they were even half-okay, you'd think he'd eat them, right? Anyway, it's a lot of money to spend for a tiny bag of treats that a dog won't touch.
They were fine? I guess? They *are* different from most freeze dried treats I've ever seen -- they're more dense and look processed rather than the light and airy freeze-dried-ice-cream-of-my-youth texture. In any case, my puppy had absolutely no interest in them, and that's ultimately what makes a treat.
Pupford does nominally offer a guarantee, but you need to ship the container back to them, which is more trouble than it's worth.
It looks like manufacturer changed the treats recipe. Previously I bought 450 treats per bag and it was pure freeze dried small liver cubes, my puppy loved those. These new treats are 600 per bag ( actually arrived in 2 bags) and it is not pure beef liver any more! It is liver mixed with hearts and something else, that was minced together and then freeze dried. The shape if the treats is not the same and my puppy chokes on them. Will not buy anymore.
The size is right and they certainly smell like salmon, but these are too hard for training treats. My dogs focus is lost trying to chew the small, hard bit. If sometimes falls from us mouth so he has to find it there by not waiting for the next command.
