I'm reviewing Bakers Mini Bones treats with chicken,made by Purina. Great Brand name. They come in a perfectly sized pack of 125g measuring 18cms x 14 cms . Not too much larger than a posh pk of crisps basically. The pack has a resealable top and little nicks at each side for easy tearing open without needing to resort to scissors. It contains 19 little bones (yes I counted them ). Our mutt is SO fussy you wouldn't believe. She is a rescue dog ,but a proper little madam with particular tastes & the usual dry dog biscuits just don't float her boat(or make her tail wag to be more accurate). We had hoped to teach her some basic tricks ,nothing strenuous,just to see what she is capable of. But it was difficult till we found these. She LOVES them,and frankly I can see/smell why.As soon as you tear the pk open the smell hits you. A nice meaty/chicken aroma,just like the smell from a pk of roast chicken crisps. And they are moist ,not dry like basic dog biscuits. Being so moist and a perfect size ...4cms long...they can be easily broken up. So the recommended number for our small diva-dog of 3 per day can be stretched to 9 or even 12 small pieces for training times. So now when the pk comes out we are treated to doggy roll-overs,begging,high-fives and 360 degree spins in a massive muddle ,just to be sure she has done enough to earn one of these treats. It is hilarious how much excitement that little blue pack causes in a normally placid dog. They are low in fat and contain Omega 3+6,vitamins,and antioxidants. They also contain meat & animal derivatives so strict vegetarians may find that offensive & prefer to avoid. We buy ours from Poundland ,but in other shops the price can be between £1.39 & £1.59. The only negative........and this is minor....is that you need to wash your hands after handling to remove the meaty smell & moistness,whereas with totally dry biscuits you can usually dodge that.
When I bought these for my mates dog Daisy I didn't realise that she had tried them before and hadn't liked them! I bought them as they are from a well known brand and would be quality and although I'm not saying that they are not good quality (cos they do appear to be) it doesn't change the fact though that they can't be all that exciting or tasty for her! The Packaging: These come in a light blue and green plastic bag with a zipper to the top of them to help them retain their freshness and on the front of the bag there is a little picture shown of a dog and the bones and we are told that they are Purina Bakers Mini Bones 'With tasty chicken' and that they are low in flat and contain Omega 3 + 6, Vitamins and Antioxidants and then on the back of the bag other information listed includes being told a bit the product, feeding advice is given and ingredients and nutritional advice is given and the weight is stated which in this case is 125g. The Bones: These are about an inch long and reasonably thick and powdery to the touch slightly. They are shaped like mini bones of course and are mainly a light brown in colour with an off white coloured centre and to me they smell really horrible and really meaty...I cannot stand the weird and rich fragrance these have to them to be honest. Now these are meant to be reasonably healthy dog treats and for a small dog we are advised to give no more than 3 of them per day, a medium sized dog, no more than 5 of them and a large dog no mmore than 8 of them and you do get about 25 of them in each bag at a rough guess. They contain plenty of flavour if the smell is anything to go by and are meant to be enriched with vitamins and minerals...however Daisy can pick them up...she ends up spitting them out. They are easy for me to break up for her to try and tempt her with them because they are not hard buy moist made out of cereals and milk as well as a few other bits and pieces of course. She has never eaten any of these that I have offered her sadly and now they are ready to be given to someone else with a dog or hit the bin because they cluttering up cupboard! Not for Daisy but for around a pound a bag in all good supermarkets and pet stores, worth a go if your interested in them for your dog I guess!
Some of you may be aware I have a beautiful toy poodle called Daisy who I have had over a year now. She loves her treats recently my sister and family came to stay near by. My Great neice bought Daisy these as a little gift. The packaging~ Clearly shown on the front of the packaging is the Bakers logo, with a picture of mini bones on the front. The treats are chicken flavour, are low in fat only containing 5%. They contain essential vitamins for your pooch. They contain omega 3 and 6. The treats also contain antioxidants that support the bodies natural defences. feeding guidelines are given. For a small dog give three treats a day. Meduim size five treats a day. Large dogs eighth treats a day. Made by purina they can be found on the web at www.purina-bakers.co.uk Verdict~ The bones are the same size as shown on the front of the packet roughly an inch wide.The treats do actually smell of chicken they are soft to aid easy chewing. My Daisy doesn't like these she spits them out a few times before she eats them so she won't be getting any more I will be giving them to my friends dogs. available from all good pet shops and supermarkets costing around £1.50.
Once again another bakers treat. From writing these reviews I have noticed how many Baker treats I actually like. I do fear they have more sugar in than other treats but then if fed sparingly then they cannot be that bad! These are little bones with a bown outer and a white inner. They are soft and plyable which means they can be snapped into smaller bits to make the bag go further! When they are snapped in two the brown out bits tends to come off in one and the white inner comes away too! Thje dogs dont go mad over these and so I am not that crazy about buying them. However they are quite good value as they ar about £1.30 a bag and you get quite a lot in there. I wouldnt make a habit of feeding these to my dogs as they are not that mad over them and they dont seem to have the best ingrediants either. However they are a fun shape and an easy shape to feed when training.
