Good Boy Tripe Sticks
Advantages: Dogs love them, 100% natural treats, good for teeth and gums
Disadvantages: They smell awful!
Every night when I put my dogs to bed, they have a little treat. One of my kitchen cupboards is literally bursting with treats for them. One of their favourite treats (and my least favourite) are Tripe Sticks, made by Good Boy.
These tripe sticks come in a blue bag made from the same sort of material as a plastic bag but a little bit thicker. Unfortunately the bag does not re-seal which can be fairly unpleasant because the tripe sticks really do smell awful. Once I have opened them, I fold the packaging over and pop a peg on it to ensure the tripe sticks stay fresh for my dogs and to make sure they don't make the kitchen cupboard smell! The bag is probably about a foot long by half a foot wide so it's a fairly big bag.
On the front is a small cartoon picture of a dog along with the Good Boy logo at the top of the bag.
On the back of the packaging there is a chart which tells you how many treats your dog can have according to their weight.
I buy these treats from my local pet shop where they cost £2.99 for a 500gram bag. I think this price is very reasonable as they tripe sticks do last quite a while and you get a good amount of them in the bag.
The Tripe Stick
These tripe sticks are actually quite good for your dog which makes a nice change from some of the other treats available. For starters they are made from 100% natural ingredients meaning they are as natural as dog treats come. They help to remove plaque and tartar from your pet's teeth and promote healthy teeth and gums.
The tripe sticks actually vary in size - some are quite short and thick and others are thinner and longer. On average the tripe sticks are about 5 inches long and half an inch thick.
How Many Sticks Do You Get In A Bag?
The amount of sticks you get varies from bag to bag but on average you get about 35-40 sticks in each bag so plenty of treats to keep your dog happy.
How Long Does The Treat Last?
It takes both my dogs a good five minutes to finish the tripe stick which is pretty good going as my dogs tend to eat their treats extremely quickly. Because the tripe sticks are very hard, they actually have to sit down and chew the treat, rather than swallowing it whole.
Marley and Dax's (my dogs) opinion
As I already mentioned, this is one of their favourite treats. My youngest dog Dax is quite a fussy eater but he gets very excited when he smells the tripe sticks coming out of the cupboard and will follow you around the house until you give it to him. They both take the tripe stick to their beds and make themselves comfortable before eating it. The both hold the tripe stick between their front paws and chew away at it until it is finished. I can tell they both really love these treats because when they have finished it, they always stand up and have a root around to see if they can find any crumbs!
I would 100% recommend these dog treats. They are good value for money and you get a good amount of treats in each bag. The treats are a good size, meaning your dog will sit down and enjoy the treat rather then eating it in seconds! I like the fact that they are made from 100% natural ingredients as it means they are fairly healthy for your dog and to top it off, they are good for your dog's teeth and gums.
The only downside is that they do smell awful. I have a pretty strong stomach but these come close to making me gag!
