I’ve written about my dog, Spice, before. She’s a Chow/Husky mix that had a hard life for the first few years, until we adopted her at the age of 3. Now, at the ripe old age of 14, Spice has had a great life. However, her teeth have never been great, and she has less than half of them left in her mouth.
Whenever we pick up new dog treats at PetSolutions, I look at them to see if they would be something that Spice could enjoy. While she does okay with hard treats, I try to find something that is slightly soft but still has some teeth cleaning properties so that she can enjoy a dog treat without too much trouble – I don’t want to cause her any discomfort. After all, she’s a senior dog – she deserves to receive dog treats, too!
When PetSolutions added the Happy Howie’s Beef Woof Stix to our list of natural dog treats, I was intrigued. Beef Woof Stix are soft and chewy so all dogs can enjoy them, even dogs that can’t have hard treats like rawhides. It sounded like these treats would be perfect for Spice!
I bought a few Stix to try out that night. My first stop was my parents’ house to see what Spice thought of a Beef Woof Stix. She ended up loving her treat. She loved it so much, she let me take pictures of her without turning away – Spice is not a fan of the camera. Spice was able to gnaw and chew on the Beef Woof Stix without any teeth issues. She was truly enjoying her treat. I had also given one to my other dog, Tyke. He finished his Woof Stix a lot faster than Spice, but he is also younger and has more teeth!
My dog, Bailey, was licking his lips before I could even get in the door at home – he could smell the beef and other natural ingredients in these treats. His nose was buried in my purse while I walked from the back door to the closet to put away my purse. As soon as he had his Beef Woof Stix in his mouth and I released him from his “Sit” command, he ran off to find a suitable spot to enjoy this new treat. While it didn’t take him as long to eat it as it took Spice to eat her treat at my parents’ house, he thoroughly enjoyed his time eating it, too.
So, three out of three dogs agree – Happy Howie’s Beef Woof Stix make dogs happy. Try some today to see if your dog agrees!
