Advantages: Great if your dog doesn't have food fads!
Disadvantages: Too hard for me to eat!
I have given my dog Baker’s products before as I do, in general, trust the brand. I know he is getting a top quality, nutritious product.
He has always enjoyed Baker’s Complete, so when I saw this product I thought it might be good to give him these twists as a treat.
The blue box promises an excellent product and guarantees that these tasty, meaty twists won’t splinter in the dog’s mouth. They contain vitamins and calcium and rice to aid digestion. (Boy, oh boy does he need that! Phew!)
There is even a picture of a sweet little puppy dog with floppy ears looking excited about the treat he is being offered.
I read the label carefully…I swear I did! It said that dog’s enjoy this chewy treat. It’s a top brand and it cost me £1.49 for each packet. There are two in a bag.
Now, I wouldn’t have been so upset if I had just bought one bag but they were on special offer (a BOGOF offer), I bought six packs at a cost of £4.47.
My dog’s reaction: ‘Bog off!’ He wasn’t interested in eating these chewy things.
He licked the one I gave him, dropped it on the floor and presented me with a paw that said, ‘OK, so what else have you got?’
I tried to tempt him into eating his treat but he wouldn’t oblige. I decided to ignore him, leave the offending object on the floor and see what he did.
The next thing I knew he was trying to climb onto my knee and his muddy paws were making a mess everywhere. There was no sign of the treat.
I went out and found it half buried in the garden. My dog doesn’t go in for digging projects but he does like to start excavations in different places.
So, that’s what he thought of the treat I had bought him.
I still don’t understand what it was that put him off eating it. His teeth and gums are very healthy and perfectly capable of chewing this product. He does each Bonio biscuits and they are very hard.
Perhaps it’s because he is an elderly dog and prefers what he knows. I did write to Bakers to ask if they could shed any light on what might be so different to a dog’s sense of taste, but they couldn’t help.
So, I ended up with six packs of doggie treats that cost me £4.50 and definitely got the paws down from Sherman. His comment would most certainly be:
The next time you see dog biscuits on sale as a BOGOF, just tell them to BOG OFF if it’s not my usual brand!
Summary: Yuk! I'd rather bury it in the garden!
