Review: Pet Munchies Natural Dog Treats

As our recent silence may have suggested, we’ve recently been away and unable to spread canine news. However, a week-long visit to the Lake District gave us the perfect opportunity to test some new doggy products.

The first products we chose to test were a selection of treats from the Pet Munchies Natural Dog Treat collection. Featuring eight flavours, these particular treats are high in protein and low in fat, ideal for keeping your furry friend happy without increasing their waistline.

All of the treats in the collection are slow roasted in their own juices, which preserves the flavour and the smell of the main ingredient. And having spent a week handling them, I can confirm that they smell incredibly tasty…

All of the treats are made with 100% real meat – no additives or extra ingredients, just meat. This makes them perfect for even the fussiest of dogs and our cocker couldn’t get enough, despite her hatred of conventional dog treats and her love of sheep, which were often our signal to dig into the treat bag.

While away, we tried the chicken breast fillets and duck strips, both of which were snapped up at every opportunity. However, there are also six other flavours, including:

  • Ocean white fish strips
  • Beef liver
  • Chicken chips (perfect for the smaller dog)
  • Chicken strips
  • Duck breast fillets
  • Chicken and calcium bones

Each bag is also resealable, making them ideal for walks and easy to store in a cupboard.

If you’re looking for a low fat natural dog treat that will drive you canine wild, these are a great option and are available for the very reasonable price of around £2.75.


Couple open doggy delicatessen

A couple form Nottingham have taken dog treats to the next level and open their very own doggy delicatessen.

Paula and Alan Cassidy-Bishop have been selling their homemade dog treats online and on market stalls for four years, but on Friday the couple opened the doors to their first high street store in Kimberley, Nottingham.

Everything sold in the shop is made from local ingredients, with 90 per cent from the local town.

Although America has seen a number of ‘barkerys’, this is the first of its kind in the East Midlands, and is believed to be only the second in the UK.

Treats on sale at Mrs Bishop’s Doggy Dell

Paula began selling dog treats in 2010 after being made redundant. She said: “It was a huge decision to make because I went for quite a few job interviews and I thought ‘well I don’t actually want to work for anyone else”.

Everything in the store goes through the couple’s chief tester, Bryn the dog. “He does everything. We come up with a new product and we test it on him, my other dog eddy and my sister’s dog Johnny.”

“If they all like it then it goes to laboratory testing and other official bits before it can go on sale. If he doesn’t eat it then it doesn’t go on sale.”
