Pets At Home Gravy Coated Bones
Advantages: Price! My dog loves them!
Disadvantages: Packaging could be improved.
I tend to go through a variety of dog treats as i'm always interested in which kind my dog prefers... as there are some which he completely turns his nose up to!!
Pets at home gravy bones.. although not an expensive professional company made (such as wainrights or bakers) have proven to be a favourite to my little dog!
They can be bought in two ways from my local pets at home store... in a 1.5kg bag for £3.15 or from the doggy pic n mix bay.
I tend to get them from the pic n mix bay as you do get a lot more! However for the price of these, theres not really much worth stressing over a few pence!
These treats aren't supposed to be given as part of a meal or main daily food. They are intended to be used as treats or as rewards when training.
However you do have to monitor the amount of buiscuits you give to your dog!
Pets at home recommends to feed your dog per day depending on its size; ....
Up to 6 Biscuits- for small breeds (5-12kg)
Up to 12 Biscuits- for medium breeds (12-25kg)
Up to 18 Biscuits- for large breeds (25-45kg)
The buiscuits aren't too large to give whole to small breeds, however I like to split them into halves as 6 buiscuits for my little dog doesn't seem to be enough haha!

I am happy to give my dog these gravy coated bones as a treat as they contain many vitamins, a good amount of protein and he loves them!
The nutritional values aren't great, however they aren't exactly unhealthy! And when fed to your dog in safe amounts advised, they are just fine!
I tend to keep the gravy bones in a tight seal container as the packaging isn't resealable and i've had many ocassions where the bones have gone everywhere in the cuboard I keep them in!
Smell and taste; ....
The bones don't give out an unpleasant smell, I actually think they smell quite nice compared to other dog treats I've tried.
They are coated with a dry gravy shell and are a crunchy texture- this means the bones don't leave a nasty smell on your hands if you like to carry treats with you when out on walkies!
I've not tasted this bones, they don't really appeal to me that much! Haha, but my dog really enjoys them. We test him out with them the first time we bought him some, and he was happy to run from one length of the garden to the other to get each bone half we threw out for him!
Excersie and a treat! :D
A great amount, at a great price. My dog loves them, and I love the price!
Summary: A great buy
