Advantages: Cheap, dogs like them, don't smell unpleasant
All of my dogs love their food and these treats are the ones that they seem to like the most. I've been buying these for years now and I usually pick the Bonio treats over any others because they're cheap, my dogs like them and most importantly they don't give my dogs runny tummies like a lot of other cheap treats do.
Bonio's are available in a few different sized boxes and a range of flavours including beef and chicken are available. I usually buy the original treats which have no noticeable smell to them. Despite this though they must be really tasty as all of my dogs go mad for them, even my yellow labrador who is quite picky when it comes to what she will and won't eat.
These are available from supermarkets, pet stores and a range of other shops such as B&M. I used to buy them from Tesco as they were often on offer but I now buy them in bulk packs of six from Amazon as it is slightly better value. The retail price per 650 gram box is around £1.70 and seeing as a box lasts for at least a week even with five dogs in the house I think that this is excellent value for money.
The treats come in a cardboard box which is around the same size and shape as a cereal box. The box opens easily meaning you don't have to cut or rip it to get it open, which comes in handy as I don't need to transfer them into another container. I usually put dog treats in an air tight container but because these are basically biscuits and they don't smell strongly at all I just keep them on the kitchen side in the box.
The treats are a decent length and width - they're quite chunky and solid which my dogs like and my youngest dog usually carries it around with her proudly before eating it. The treats are shaped like bones and they have a biscuity texture to them. 'Bonio' is indented into the centre of each treat and they're a beige colour.
The treats are crunchy and easy for my dogs to chew up but not so easy that it doesn't make them work a little and they usually spend at least 3-4 minutes chewing it and eating the crumbs off the floor. I have large breed dogs - labradors and a husky as well as a medium breed dog, a jack russel so smaller dogs would take a little longer - to a chiuaua one of these would look massive!!
We have wooden floor so crumbs aren't an issue but if you have carpet I'd recommend putting your dog outside with the treats as the crumbs would make a mess on the carpet and as the dogs lick the crumbs up it would get all soggy and yucky. The treats are made of cereal and oil and they have a small amount of 'meat' (crushed up animal bones/cartilage) in them too. Each one has various vitamins and minerals in it as well as protein and fibre.
Overall, I highly recommend these treats.
