Blue as a pup

  
 Every dog loves treats. Wether its to say “I Love You” or “Good Job” a tasty reward is a surefire way to get a tail wagging. Blue, our one year old Border Collie/Blue Heeler cross, always has a smile on his face when he sees someone heading to the treats cupboard for his favourite crunchy treat. He is very stubborn, and with all of the training we have tried with him he has gotten every kind of treat offered as a bribe. Its been an uphill battle, and we’ve called in the pros to help with his training but Blue is still a good dog, and we love him!

 Thanks to ShesConnected and Milk-Bone I’ve had a chance to try out the new Healthy Favorites line with some of my furry friends.

 Being that our pup is on a bit of a hiatus for some obedience training and neutering I’ve chosen to take the “Brand Ambassador” part of this program to the next step. I hit the streets to see what my pooch pals and their owners think of the new Milk-Bone Healthy Favorites Treats!

  My first stop was at my Mother in Laws house to visit with her two Bichon Frise dogs- Babes and Freckles.

Sweet ’til there’s treats!

  Both are 7 year old pampered pups, who adore being spoiled by their Mama. I quickly found out that they also enjoy their treats! The two dogs were growling at each other when the chewy Milk-Bones were being shared, and once the teeth came out it put a quick end to our photo shoot! I think they liked them! Mom said that she liked the size of the chewy treats, and thought that the texture was great for her babies ‘sensitive’ little mouths. She also appreciates that they are affordable.

 My next stop was at my neighbours house. They have a delightful two year old dog named Turbo who is a rescue dog. He is a very active large breed, and one of his favourite past times includes surprising unexpected passerbys by sticking his head over the fence!

Did someone say “Treats”?

 Turbo was loving all of the treats that I brought over.

His Mom was very impressed with the healthy granola and sweet potato ingredients, and she thought that it was neat that she could see the bits of healthy ‘stuff” in each biscuit.

You say these have carrots and sweet potatoes in them?

If I look reeeal cute may I have a tenth treat? Pwease?

 Turbo was none the wiser that he just enjoyed a whole bunch of healthy treats. He did favor the softer Chewy Treats, which didn’t surprise his owner.

 I was happy to see that even picky dogs enjoyed the Milk-Bone Healthy Favorites, and I’m sure that our dog Blue will love his stash!
