Chewy.com Orijen Regional Red Freeze Dried Dog Treats Review



   If there is one thing Dexter is good at, it is telling a good treat from a bad one. Dexter is the world's tiniest bottomless pit when it comes to food. He will typically eat just about anything if I am not quick enough to get it out of his reach in time.
     Treats are really the only thing on the planet that he is picky about. He won't eat anything that is too big unless you break it apart, he won't eat anything crunchy usually, and he seems to really dislike any kind of treat made with peanuts or peanut butter as a main ingredient.
       Having given him freeze dried treats before, I had a feeling he would be okay with the texture at least. The previous treats were liver or something to that effect, but he was still slightly tentative about eating them. I decided to roll the dice and review a surprise package of Orijen treats for Dexter from Chewy.com
      Orijen being the only true biologically appropriate pet food on the market, it includes more fresh meat than any other dry pet food brand. Orijen is designed to mirror a natural animal diet and includes a diversity of meats. Free-run chicken and turkey, fresh whole eggs, free-range red meats and fresh saltwater & freshwater fish make for a nourishing and healthy diet that nature intended.
     Their Freeze dried treats are no exception. Dexter tried the Regional Red Treats made with Ranch Raised Wild Boar, Black Angus Beef, and Free Range Lamb out of Canada. They are a grain free formula made without preservatives and are low in calories and high in protein making them perfect for dogs of all sizes and all adult stages.
     I love that not only are they good for Dexter, but that they are the perfect size treat for him. I mentioned before, Dexter doesn't like to chew things and if he can't easily eat it he will run around like a maniac with it in his mouth crying. I worry when he does this because I don't want him to choke, but also because it usually ends with him handing me a slobber covered treat that I have to break apart.
     They are not only the perfect size for tiny mouths like Dexter but they also make really great training treats when you are trying to teach a particularly difficult trick.
Dex doesn't know how to give me his paw to "Shake" and he has never really caught on to "rolling over" until recently. He has completed it twice and that is a success in my book!
     Chewy is fantastic for finding all kinds of fun stuff from food, to grooming, to flea and tick care for your dog or cat. If you want to learn more, check out their website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ to stay in the loop!

  1. I love how Orijen has several grain-free dog food options because Bodhi has a horrible grain allergy.

    1. Dexter just has a "I don't like lettuce" spit reflex, it must be hard to have a doodle with special dietary needs when you don't know where to obtain that kind of stuff.

    1. I love that I was able to catch a picture of him sitting like a circus bear...That and the giant bugged out eyeball picture of him is pretty hilarious. He sure knows how to make pictures fun.

    1. Dexter has loved all the freeze dried treats he has ever tried. He is usually so picky about crunchy things that it can be hard to find things he likes. These are definitely his favorite. He has went through the entire bag already. lol
