Newest Review: ... do a bit of training as well. An 800 gram box of these treats retails at £1.49 which I think is a bargain. I have four dogs and one box... more
£1.49 for a treat selection Daisy adores is a snip!

Tesco Small Bite Bone Selection Treats
Disadvantages: She gets crumbs everywhere eating these!
My friend and her poodle, Daisy almost live at my flat and when my mate isn't here sometimes Daisy just stays with me. We call her a part share dog, she does and stays where she pleases and neither of us mind.
The other day I was in Tesco and I treated her to these at £1.49 a box. She doesn't normally like crunchy style biscuits which is why when I left with them in my shopping bag I was left wondering why I had probably wasted my money!
Well the biscuits come in a bright orange box with photograph of a labrador on the front and on the back (odd as these are called small bites!) and we are shown a picture of the biscuits on there too and told that they are Tesco Small Bite Bone Selection Treats and they are vitamin & mineral enriched and give good oral care for teeth & gums. Other information on the box tells us the ingredients and composition of the snacks, a feeding guide is given, the size is stated which is 800g (and the only size I am aware that they are available to purchase in) and contact details for Tesco are given. Nice enough, informative packaging this is.
Well the treats are shaped like bones, are rather thick and come in beige, yellow, an orangy colour and black. No flavour is stated as to what each colour represents but all of them contain cereals and fats, meat and animal derivatives as well as derivatives from vegetables (as well as a couple of other ingreidents). They are biscuits, smooth on the outside and by the sound of Daisy munching through them very crunchy indeed.
Surprisingly Daisy, the lazy dog loves these! Yes they make a mess and her favourite habit at the moment is taking one to my bed and nibbling it there and leaving some crumbs for me to lie in when I go to bed when I'm not looking though they do seem to make her thirsty so water down is a must.
The feeding guide on the box is very comprehensive telling you how many to give a puppy of a certain weight and whether it be a toy or big dog and the same for adult large dogs so although these are called small bite they are not just meant to be given as treat for small or puppy dogs, they're actually suitable for any dog hence the photograph of the labrador on the front after all!
As I stated earlier I really didn't think Daisy would appreciate these at all but she really does and her serving as an adult small dog is 5 of these a day thought they are not suitable for puppies less than 6 weeks old but you can break them up easily if you so desire and/or moisten with water for very young pups if you want to.
All in all you get loads of these for your money, they look nice and the Daisy loves em so these get a huge thumbs up from me and her though my bed hates them!
Only available in Tesco stores or from Tesco.com
Summary: A brilliant buy and I've never seen Daisy easy a dry treat ever before!
