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!
