    Default The revolting treats, part 2

    I couldn't resist getting another pic of the dogs with their beloved yucky tracheas.

    I just couldn't be bothered to cut them up so gave them a whole one. They are huge! Here they are with their treats. Next purchase will be the smaller ostrich tracheas for sure:

    Leo looks contemplatively at his while Lily lashes into hers in the background.


    Jaspar takes his into a seperate bed where he can guard it. Note suspicious look on his face. He finally started into it after about half an hour and is busy gnawing away right now. Leo's just dozing beside his.

    The windpipe! These are beef tracheas and they are really hard.

    Do they go soggy, after chewing, like hide chews? I had to stop using these, as monty will swallow a piece that's less than three inches long and has nearly choked as a result.

    They are supposed to be a lot more digestible than rawhide. They can kind of crunch and gnaw them and they do get soft but like pizzle sticks, not soggy chunks. They like these but I prefer giving them the neck sinews. They aren't quite as messy or smelly; they love the sinews too. All the disgusting treats from zooplus.ie. They also love the horribly-named 'lunginis'. Yep they have beef lung in them.

    oh they look attractive Karlin LOL So glad you can't put smells on the internet!!

    Lovely to see them enjoying them though...

    Are the sinews very hard? Rupert broke a tooth on a pizzle so I have to be a bit careful as to what I feed him.

    the Zooplus site - https://www.zooplus.co.uk/ is the UK link.

    This is the range of natural treats...sound horrid but much better for the dogs than the processed items such as Dentastix...

    I bought some of the red fish rolls from fish4dogs when they were on offer, they are brilliant, not cheap to buy but you get a lot - normally they work out at 10p each as you get approx 250 in a 1.9kg box, but they were on offer at BOGOF, so 5p each...
    they have long storage dates too.

    The fish4dogs treats are great; I got a range of things the last time I was at an IKC show over here. Dogtrainignireland are talking about carrying them in Ireland but haven;t done so yet.

    The sinews are kind of like beef jerky buta bit harder. They aren't as hard I think as pizzle sticks. I'd think maybe some of the dried meat treats they have would be good. I'm experimenting with various things!
