Review & Giveaway: Why pawTree® pawTreats Make us Smile

Review & Giveaway: Why pawTree® pawTreats Make us Smile

The Chesnut Mutts were compensated in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are genuinely mine and we would not share a product that we did not fully believe in. Please do not use any image without permission.

If you ever met Jada you know she is quite the foodie, but with allergies, being a lover of all things edible can be challenging, to say the least. Limited ingredient treats are the way to go in these situations and we are talking about some great ones today from pawTree® called pawTreats!

pawTree® makes it easier for pet parents to choose a quality food and treats without being overwhelmed by all the options out there. (see our review on their customized nutritional plan) We learned about pawTree last year at the 2015 BlogPaws conference and fell in love with their pawTreats. Bailey didn't want to try any other treats out in the exhibit hall except for them and of course, Jada threw out all the stops to get some! Since then, they have come out with some new flavors and types so let's take a look at 4 different varieties of pawTreats!

Freeze-Dried Duck & Orange pawTreats

The first pawTreat we are looking at is the freeze-dried duck and orange. See those ingredients? Duck and Oranges. That's it! We had to wait a bit to get these since they are so popular they were back-ordered, but the wait was worth it.

 All the dogs loved them and couldn't get enough! Freeze-dried treats are the best since they lock in all the flavor and nutrients without cooking it all out. Yum yum!

Freeze-Dried Beef Liver pawTreats

Beef liver is a great training treat for dogs as the smell is enticing and these chunks can be snapped apart for smaller dogs. I love treats where you can tell off the bat just by looking at them that they are minimally processed.

I lost count how many is on her head
 These beef liver strips are nice and crunchy which can help with dental health. The dogs didn't care about helping their teeth, but they sure did love the taste!

Freeze-Dried Beef, Potatoes, Carrots & Celery pawTreats

Ok, so this pawTreat has got to be one of my favorites because it smells exactly like beef roast! Beef, potatoes, carrots, and celery are the only ingredients - so delicious!

Jada agrees too!
So how are these freeze-dried treats made anyways? Well, the meat is ground up first, the fruits or veggies are mixed it, the treat is shaped and frozen, and then put into a freeze-dryer which takes all the moisture out and leaves it shelf stable.


Dry-roasted Duck Strips

In contrast to the freeze-dried treats before, these duck strips are dry-roasted. The meat is ground up, formed, and then put into a dry roaster for 15 hours to dehydrate. These are easy to break up for training or for small dogs and the novel duck smell makes them irresistible!

In a Nutshell...

  • Besides dog food and supplements, pawTree® also has really great limited ingredient treats called pawTreats!
  • These are either freeze-dried or dry-roasted which preserves all the nutrients without cooking them out
  • Everything is made in the U.S.A. with no preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors - just check the ingredients!
  • If you are interested in buying from pawTree, our friend, fellow Chesnut Mutt reader, and petPro, Denise Steele can always help you out on her personal pawTree website.

These have been a big favorite in our household especially because they are great for pups with allergies. The flavor is definitely not skimped on since the treats are either freeze-dried or dry-roasted and the dogs love them! If you are struggling to find high-quality treats for your food allergy-prone dog then we definitely recommend trying these!

  19. My three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds love treats and all three will sit and shake for them. My Kyoko gives hugs and kisses for extras, too (now that we have her down to a healthy weight, she can have a few healthy "cookies"throughout the day).

  26. Besides endless begging? They know lots of tricks- take a bow, spin, play dead, stretch, high five, roll over, the usual stuff... also know bigger tricks like putting their toys away, bowling. And they'll work for food in dog sports- agility, nose work, barn hunt...

  27. I give my dog a treat when he is quiet instead of "barking mad" at the neighbor dogs when we see them.
