Durable chew toys like KONGs have been wonderful in helping Luna and I overcome bouts of separation anxiety and in just having some fun. I was so thrilled when JAKKS Pacific, Inc. asked us to review a few flavors of KONG Premium Treats. What could be better than trying treats that are designed to fit specifically in Luna’s KONG? Giving away three bags of those treats to three of our friends! Find out more about the giveaway at the end of the post.

First Luna tried the Lamb Meat Stix, a KONG Chewy Treat. These treats are long and skinny and very easy to break into smaller pieces. As soon as I opened the bag, she ran over begging for some. The scent was very strong! It was not very appetizing to me, but sure got her attention. This made them great for training treats! Luna loves the taste and cannot seem to get enough of these delicious treats.

The Lamb Meat Stix contain lamb, salmon, and flax seed in addition to other natural ingredients. The lamb and salmon are good sources of protein and salmon and flax seed aid in skin and coat health with Omega-3 fatty acids. These treats come in a 6.5 oz bag and sell for about $8.99 a bag.

Next we tried the Crunchy Chicken Bars. These treats were not as potent as the Meat Stix and could not be as easily broken into smaller pieces, but that did not stop Luna from enjoying them. She loved how much they crunched and would not ever turn one down!

The Crunchy Chicken Bars contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as they are made with chicken, cranberries, carrots, and broccoli. They come in a 10 oz bag and sell for about $8.99.

Finally, Luna excitedly chewed apart a few KONG Chew Buddies. We received an assortment bag of large Chew Buddies. The bag contained one fresh breath chew, two chicken chews, and one bacon chew. Luna could not wait for me to give her the first chicken chew. She furiously worked at it until it was no more. As a heavy chewer, it took her only about seven minutes to devour it. Luna was equally as happy to get her bacon chew a week later.

The chews come in adorable shapes. We had a squirrel, pig, cow, and crocodile. It was so fun to play with the chew before Luna ate it. I guess we still have not learned not to play with our food before we eat it.

The Chew Buddies have a strong smell, which is great for getting your dog’s attention. Although the Chew Buddies were considered large, I found them to be a reasonable sized occasional treat for Luna, who is a 23 pound beagle mix. They may in fact be too small for some larger, heavy chewer dogs. At seven minutes, they were not super long lasting, but Luna definitely enjoyed them. She did not seem to prefer one flavor over another. Luna also went straight for the water bowl after finishing her chews, so be sure to have water around while treating your dog to a Chew Buddy.

Chew Buddies come in both a small and large size and can be purchased in a variety pack or single pack. The variety pack contains ten small or four large Chew Buddies for $14.99. Individually, large Chew Buddies retail for $3.99 and small retail for $1.99. The ingredients in the three varieties vary slightly, so be sure to check for any allergens for your pet.

Overall, we are impressed with our KONG Premium Treats. Treats made with the promise of natural ingredients in the USA sure makes me happy. Luna thoroughly enjoyed the flavor, texture, and smell of all the varieties we tried.

KONG Premium Treats can be found online at PetSmart.com, Petco.com, Amazon.com, and other online retailers. They can also be found in store at PetSmart, Petco, and other pet supply stores.
