Advantages: Small and Tasty
Disadvantages: Small Bags and quite expensive, Ingredients are disgusting
I used to love these treats, any my dogs still do, (but given how I have yet to find anything Luna has turned down, that's not much of a compliment)
I liked them because first of all they are the ideal training treat, I cut them in half and they are the perfect size and from a reward aspect they get the desired effect from the dogs.
The price is usually £1 for a 70g bag, so whilst they're not the cheapest, they are fairly good value for money and they are branded too by contrast to what the cheapest treats on the market are. In addition to this the ingredient are fairly good and not filled with as much superfluous contents. They are a treat though so I do limit how many my dogs do have, cutting them smaller not only means they have more to work for, without expanding their tummy's.
However, I made the mistake of reading the ingredients....there is very little cheese in these "Cheesy Bites" what you have instead is a string of ingredients one of which is "inorganic matter". I mean, what is inorganic matter? Something that clearly can't be identified. Would you eat that? If you saw that in your shopping's ingredients? I certainly wouldn't....so why should my dogs.
I used these treats out of laziness, as normally I make liver cake, which works so much better as the aromatic smell has the dog literally eating out of your hand. So i reverted back to my liver cake, and attempted to make my own "cheese cake" training treat....well my dog went mad on it, and did so well at our next training class, a few people asked about the treats I was using. When I explained they were homemade, I was asked to make some for them. After 6 months I not only make treats for our club, but have expanded to making a whole range of training treats and homemade biscuits, selling them on facebook and etsy. We sell 100g for £1 so alot better value, and I make no profit out of this, as we donate all the profits to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
Needless to say I no longer use Pedigree's inorganic matter filled treats.
