Dog Treats and Toys from @Chewy

Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie especially love Chewy this month because they were sent a dog toy and a bag of dog treats to review.  That's twice as much fun!

Jeffie loves the smell of Orijen Free Run Duck dog treats.

All three of my dogs have enjoyed Orijen dog treats and freeze dried dog food, so I was confident they'd like these treats.  I love that they contain just one real ingredient: duck.   Jeffie and Rosie loved them.  In the interest of full disclosure I have to tell you that Rudy spit his out.  Guess he's not into duck.
Quack, quack! Jeffie and Rosie want more!

The good folks at Chewy also sent us a KONG Squeezz Ball with Handle Dog Toy

KONG Squeezz Ball with Handle is the perfect interactive toy for you and your dog. Designed for durability with a recessed, protected squeaker, KONG Squeezz Ball with Handle is great for indoor and outdoor use.
Rosie got the hang of the KONG Squeezz Ball with Handle right away.

Key Benefits
  • Perfect for tossing, tugging and retrieving
  • Recessed/protected squeaker induces play
  • Available in two sizes: M and L
  • Colors vary (Ruby, Amethyst, Emerald or Sapphire) - You choose the size, color ships at random!
We received a ruby KONG Squeezz Ball for large dogs and it was a big hit with my dog pack.
You want me to tug it?  How about you throw it instead.

The squeaker is just loud enough to be interesting to my dogs - without getting on our nerves.  Though Rosie really wanted to chew on the handle and Rudy preferred playing fetch instead of tug of war, I'd say the KONG Sqeezz Ball is a winner.
Umm, Rosie, you're not supposed to chew the handle.
Rudy says:  Throw it!

We've been giving our dogs KONG toys for years.  We've found them to be safe, soft in their mouths, very durable, and they keep our dogs engaged for both inside and outside play.   The KONG Squeezz Ball with Handle is a barking good addition to the KONG dog toy offerings.
Rudy and Rosie love this new KONG toy for their tandom retrieving.

  • Chewy.com gives back via their Shelter and Rescue Network 
 * We received a KONG Squeezz Squeezz Ball with Handle dog toy and one 2 oz package of Orijen Free-Run Duck dog treats from Chewy.com in exchange for our honest review of the product and service.  We received no other compensation - financial or otherwise.

We're joining the Tasty Tuesday blog hop today.  This is a blog hop that celebrates good food, sponsored by Sugar the Golden Retriever and Kols Notes.  


  1. DUCK! We definitely need to try these. Bentley is eating cool proteins which limit a lot of treats, but duck and rabbit are on the list! Thanks for telling us about Orijen treats. We love this Kong toy! ♥

  2. I've been looking for a good grain free duck treat!! I like high value treats for working on our walks (currently using lung) and this sounds like it might do the trick.

    Sorry to hear that Rudy's not a fan. LOL

  3. We LOVE the Orijen snacks. Deeeeeelicious.


  4. We also got two things to review from Chewy.com! We love them so much!

  5. We love those duck treats. Mom orders them for us for nose work rewards sometimes. The toy would be more for retriever types I think.

  6. Our pups love duck, so we will most definitely be trying out those Orijen treats! I love the fact that they are single ingredient treats ~ I will always chose those over treats with a long list of ingredients.

  7. ooh definitely need some of their treats. Love the limited high-quality ingredients. Love the giving back. XS

  8. Free Run Duck sounds nummy. Your gang loves that toy as much as mine do.


Go ahead... bark at us!
