The Original Bonio Dog Biscuits
Advantages: Nutritious, good for your dogs teeth
Disadvantages: Could do a few more flavours!
I like to give my dogs a couple of treats to go to bed with of an evening and I like to vary their treats so they don't get bored. Here I will be reviewing Bonio's.
Bonio's come in a large red box with Bonio written across the front in the shape of a bone. At the bottom of the packet is a picture of the top part of a Basset Hounds head and he is looking up towards to Bonio sign (obviously wanting a Bonio!) Across the front of the packet their logo 'Keep Tails Wagging' is written in white writing.
On the back of the dog is all the usual info such as ingredients and a customer comments and complaints address and phone number.
I buy my Bonio's from Tesco. They come in two different sizes - a 650 gram box costs 98p and a 1.2 kg box will set you back £1.97 so they are fairly reasonably priced.
According to the Bonio website, these biscuits are proven to help reduce plaque and tarter on your dog's teeth so not only are they enjoyable for your pet; they are also good for their teeth! Apparently the shape of the biscuit, along with the texture and the recipe help to scrape away at the plaque and tartar that builds up on your dogs teeth over time. If these biscuits are fed everyday they can help to reduce gum disease and tooth-loss so all in all, they are a pretty good treat! The Bonio biscuit is traditionally oven baked to make it tasty as well as wholesome and nutritious too.
The Bonio Biscuit
The biscuit itself is quite large, about 3 inches long which is great as it means that my dogs actually have to sit down and chew them. With many dogs' treats, they can literally swallow them whole so I like Bonio's as it means that seem to get more enjoyments from them as they actually sit down and take a few bites before finishing it. The Biscuit is light brown and has the word Bonio indented across the front of the biscuit.
Taste and Smell
To be honest, to me, the biscuit smells quite similar to normal dog food biscuits and I can imagine the Bonio being quite dry and it does tend to crumble when my dogs eat it. However, my dogs seem to enjoy their Bonio's, actually taking the time to sit down and take a few bites before swallowing it! They do make a bit of a crumbly mess on the floor which they always hoover up with pleasure!
Bonio produce quite a range of these biscuits. The produce these original ones that I have just reviewed as well as Bonio Marrowbone and Bonio Beef Flavour.
The biscuits also come in a variety of sizes, Bite size Bonio, Mini Bonio and The Big Bonio. I also quite like the Big Bonio as it's only 44p at Tesco and lasts a long time as the biscuit is massive!
I would definitely recommend the Bonio biscuit as a treat for your dog. The Bonio brand has been around for 75 years so they are obviously doing something right! Not only will your dog enjoy their treat, it is great for their teeth - you can't really ask for much more from a dog treat. The range of flavours and sizes is reasonable so you are able to vary the treats you give your dogs to save them getting bored with the same treat (if that's possible!) And to top it all off, they are reasonably priced!
