Grain Free Pure Heaven @Canidae Dog Treats from @Chewy

When the good folks at Chewy offered to send us some Canidae dog treats we were thrilled.  We previously tried some of their tasty treats and loved them. (You can read that review here.)

This time Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie taste tested  Canidae Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits with Salmon and Sweet Potato Crunchy Dog Treats,

PURE Heaven Biscuits come in three varieties:  Salmon and Sweet Potato, Duck and Chickpeas, Bison and Butternut Squash.  11-oz bags retail $7.99  Right now they're on sale at Chewy.com $6.39
Canidae dog treats are scored to easily break into two smaller treats.

According to Chewy, Canidae Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits are deliciously nutritious treats for adult dogs. When Canidae's nutritional specialists created these new grain and gluten-free recipes, they didn’t stop at the basics. This unique salmon and sweet potato recipe also features wholesome quinoa, nutritious extra virgin olive oil, and savory cinnamon. And they easily snap in half so you can treat dogs of all breeds and sizes or use as a training reward! Healthy Canidae biscuits also clean teeth and freshen breath. Spend some quality time with your best friend and give them these great-tasting 100% grain-free snacks from CANIDAE.

Mmmm, these dog treat smell good!
I'm especially impressed by this company's dedication to safety.  To assure the safety of their products, Canidae has strict protocols which require that all formulas are tested in-line during their production runs and cleared by a second supervisor every 30 minutes. Additionally, there are 141 ingredient tests and 10 finished product tests that are performed. A sample of each finished goods batch is also sent directly to our research and development center where they are tested again, this time by a third party lab, for known toxins and potential risk hazards.

I love that all Canidae products are made in the United States using the highest quality U.S. ingredients. 
All formulations are produced in USDA, FDA, and AAFCO approved facilities. The nutritionally dense fresh meats and meals we use originate from USDA inspected meats processed in a human grade facility. Our high quality grains, vegetables, and fruits are from human grade producers. All Canidae dry goods, cans, and treats are naturally preserved. All of our commodities have undergone stringent testing procedures prior to going into any of our products—assuring safety and freshness for both your pets and ours

  1. Look at them, they look and sound delish, nice review Jeffie.

  2. I don't like sweet potato, but Canidae treats with sweet potato I do eat. Not sure what they do differently. They make good treats.

  3. Harley loves salmon and sweet potato so we will definitely have to try these out. I'm really impressed with Canidae's commitment to safety and quality that you outlined! We just started working with Chewy.com as well - aren't they awesome?!!

  4. I love that ingredient list, and this sounds like a great company. I also like treats that can be easily broken in half, since we have one smaller dog, and do lots of training, that makes life easier.

  5. Those look yummy. I bet brown dawgs would love them.


Go ahead... bark at us!
