Product Review: Kong Premium Treats

We were asked to review a sampling of Kong Premium Treats!  They are one of our Park Day 2.0 sponsors and some very lucky doggies may be winning some of these treats in June if they play.  Before I begin, I should tell you first that I was not compensated in any way for this review.  Finn and Charley got the treats, so they were over the moon to try them out!  These opinions are those of  me and me alone.

The first product we tried was the Drumstick Premium Dog Chew.  I chose this treat in particular because I am always in the market for treats which I think will last more than two seconds to eat.  I was not disappointed.  They don’t contain wheat, corn or soy, any animal bi-products or colorants.  And they are made right here is the USA.


I was so pleased that the dogs passed the dual sit test.  Regular followers of my blog know that this is complicated to achieve for any length of time, and here we have it.  Treats worth waiting for.


Charley tended to chomp off the chicken part of the treat and then attack the bone.


Finn was slightly more gentle at first, but then tried to just chomp off bite by bite of both meat and bone, and it took her a few extra minutes more of chew time by going this route.


Overall, I give these treats two thumbs up.  They were delicious, healthy, and big enough to take them both a bit of time to eat!

We then tried Retriever Rolls, 100% all natural beef hide.  These are also made in the USA.  I was first really impressed with the packaging.  Two eight-inch rolls come in one package, and the package is resealable, which is so smart.


Generally, when I give Finn a rawhide roll of this size, it is devoured within an hour perhaps?  She is a real pro.  This roll lasted her for well over three hours in three sittings.  And, when we sat down to eat dinner, there was no charge on the kitchen from Finn or Charley, not even when I dropped the tomato sauce on the kitchen floor!  So I know they thought they were delicious.


This was Charley’s first treat of this size, and given his delicate stomach and inexperience with the rolls, we let him munch on it for about thirty minutes.


I enjoyed knowing that there also did not contain harmful preservatives or colorants, and they help clean teeth and freshen breath too.  They also contain STAY-C, a patented protected bio-available form of Vitamin C.

Overall, we were very happy with our Kong Premium Treats experience, and I would recommend them to any dog, we swear on our eight paws!

    We’re always on the lookout for treats that take time to demolish. There are so few.

    We get some Kong products here but I’ve never seen Kong treats. They look great and I’m sure Litchi would do her nut to get some.

    I like to chew on my stuff forever but my sister is an eating machine and wolfs hers down and then will steal mine if I leave it. They look good, wonder if it would take my sister any longer to chew up than usual?

    Whisky has never been much of a chewer of raw hides but those Kong treats do look very yummy, judging from Finn and Charley’s expressions!

    Both those products look grrrrrreat and we especially like the fact that they last a little longer than the average treat. Wish we got them here in SA.

    I’ll have to see if they have smaller sizes for the chi’s. They’re very picky about sizes – everything has to be small and lightweight. I’m always looking for healthy treats and foods for them, so I’ll definitely be on the lookout for these.

    We know Denny loved the Kong Treats he won in the first Park Day competition ….enough to steal the packet off the table, get the zip lock open and eat the entire packet.

    Perfect dual sit! The treats sound excellent, and my mommy loves the idea of the resealable package. My only question is why is she sitting in this house. She should be at the store getting these yummy treats for me. 🙂

    I am curious if they do something to the rawhide to make it more digestible than regular rawhide. I couldn’t ever give my small dogs regular rawhide because they could choke or get a blockage.
