Advantages: Wholesome dog treats.
Disadvantages: not that cheap.
I sent my son to the corner shop to get our dog Max some treats. I had given my dog the last few and always like to have some in the cupboard for treats and rewards. Mistakenly I had failed to say get a few chewies that cost 5p each as opposed to a box as I was going shopping that evening. However he returned home with not only one but two boxes of these. He was so impressed with himself for completing his mission I didn't have the heart to return them. Maxi though was thoroughly impressed by the treats, and I now purchase them on a regular basis. The corner shop was selling them for £1.49 per 800g box. You can purchase them at most pet shops and superstores, I have seen them in Tesco for £1.69 or two for £2.00, so I tend to only buy them on offer at Tesco or buy them at my corner shop which is cheaper.
These treats are also great for supplementing their normal diet because they are fortified with calcium, vitamin D, iron, Fibre and omega 3 and 6. These are full of vitamins that enhance your dog's health giving more energy (not that my maxi needs more). It's supposed to improve their coat also but as I give my dog supplements anyway and brush him daily, I have not noticed any significant change in his coat. The box is green with a picture of a golden retriever on the front and images of the biscuits all over it. The packaging is fairly appealing. The biscuits are loose in the box and not cellophane wrapped which although not necessary, would be an improvement for me, as a way of keeping them fresher.

The recommended daily limits are for a 7kg dog: 7 biscuits, 15kg dog: 13 biscuits and for a 30kg dog: 22 biscuits, and are designed for older dogs. Although I never give max this many as this is rather excessive. These are not a complete dog food and should only be used for treats; you dog will still need either a complete dry food or tinned food. And you need to ensure your dog has access to water when being offered these as they appear rather dry. The biscuits come in six shapes a heart, a bone, a house, a star, a flower and a fish although really this is unimportant as it does not affect the quality of the product but it does make it more enjoyable for the kids to feed them to the dog. Winalot is a well-established and well known pet food supplier and have been established since 1927. So is trusted brand for my dog. We ways have some in our pockets for rewards when we walk him and use them as treats at home and Max always appreciates the gesture.
