Bakers Meaty Twists
Advantages: Dogs love them, quite a few in packet, re-sealable bag
Disadvantages: Not suitable for dogs under 3k
These Baker's Meaty Twists are another favourite in my household - well the dogs favourite anyway!
One thing I like about these treats is that the packet is re-sealable which means that the treats stay fresh as there are 20 of so treats in each bag so its not like you can (or should) feed them all to your dog in one sitting.
The packet itself is about a 12 inches tall and about 6 inches wide. The Bakers logo is written across the front of the packet in white. Meaty Twists is also written across the front with a picture of the treat on the front underneath the writing. Underneath this is the caption 'Its Dogilicious'
On the back of the packaging, there is a chart on which you can work out how many treats your dog should be allowed depending on its size and weight.
It does state on the packaging does that these chews are unsuitable for dogs under 9 months old and dogs under 3kg so these would not be suitable for small dogs.
As well as this biscuit Baker's also produce the following treats: Sizzlers Bacon, Sizzlers Bacon and Cheese, Wirlers, Munchy Morsels, Drummers and Meaty Treats
I get these treats at Tesco and currently they are on a special offer where you get 2 bags for £2 which I think is good value for money for a brand name dog treat. Normally, when they are not on special offer, they are £1.48 per bag (350grams)
The Meaty Twist
The Twists are about 4.5 inches long and about 1.5 inches so it is quite a large treat which means my dog has to actually sit down and eat it rather then just gulping it down in one hit.
The Meaty Twists are different coloured strips of dog treats that have been bound together and then twisted at either end to give the desired effect - and hence the name - The Meaty Twist. The outside of the treat is yellow/beige (similar to the colour of a dog bone) and the middle is a reddy brown colour (similar to the marrowbone you get in dogs bones).
The outside of the treat is quite hard and my dogs certainly have to chew on them to break them apart. The inside is slightly softer though, again, I think this is meant to represent the normal marrowbone of a dogs bone.
Marley's and Dax's (my dogs) Opinion
This treat is a firm favourite with my dogs. Dax is a very fussy eater and quite often refuses to eat his dinner but whenever I get one of these treats out, he sticks his nose up in the air to have a good sniff and you can tell that he is getting excited at the thought of having one.
Funnily enough both my dogs take these treats back to their beds when I give it to them which they don't normally do, they just gulp most of their treats down in. These treats require a bit more work, they are quite hard and need to be chewed properly before they can actually swallow them which means they last longer and the dogs certainly seem to enjoy them more.
I will certainly be buying these treats again and would recommend them to any dog owner. They also contain essential vitamins and calcium for your dogs teeth and bones which is an added advantage.
I think they are excellent value for money and even more so when they are on special offer - good old Tesco!
