On the heels of Valentine’s Day and Love Your Pet Day, Sadie has decided to share something she absolutely loves – Rachael Ray’s dog treats. For years she has been in love with the Soup Bones – especially the beef flavor. But this week our friends at Chewy.com sent Sadie two new varieties of Rachael Ray Nutrish treats to try out – Deli Cuts Pepperoni and Meatloaf Morsels.
Like all of Rachael Ray’s products, I love that I can trust the quality and safety of these treats for my dog. Both the Meatloaf Morsels and the Deli Cuts Pepperoni treats are made from U.S. farm raised beef and contain no wheat or corn. There are no artificial flavors or meat by-products. Plus a portion of the sales of these treats goes to Rachael’s Rescue, an organization to help animals in need.
It’s obvious why Sadie loves Rachael Ray treats – because they taste great. Of course I don’t know that from personal experience, but I trust Sadie’s very picky palate when she consistently chooses Rachael Ray treats over many other brands. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if other pet parents may taste the Deli Cuts Pepperoni treats, because to me they are completely indistinguishable from pre-packaged pepperoni made for humans. Both look and smell exactly the same. And I know that I can trust the ingredients in the Rachael Ray dog treats. Not sure I can say the same for the human pepperoni.
With these two new varieties of Nutrish treats, Sadie immediately gravitated to the Meatloaf Morsels. She enjoys both, but I think she just has a general preference for meatloaf over pepperoni. Also the Deli Cuts Pepperoni has the strong, smoky odor that you would find in regular pepperoni, and I think Sadie prefers more subtle flavors. I totally understand the preference since I don’t like smoky flavors either. But the strong scent of the Deli Cuts Pepperoni treats does make them perfect for hide and seek and nose work games. They are small enough that you can easily hide them around the house and send your dog off for some sniffing fun trying to find the treats. They are also really easy to break apart to put in treat puzzles so that your dog will have a good target scent to find.
To end this review I’d like to tell you about what happened ten minutes ago. I was working on this blog post, typing on my tablet on the couch, like I always do. I had the bags of treats on the end table, within reach so I could read the ingredients and other information. Normally blogging is too boring for Sadie, even when I’m talking about dog treats, so she usually sits on the window seat and patrols the neighborhood. But ten minutes ago Sadie suddenly jumped down from the window and used her doggy stairs to get onto the couch with me. She marched right over to me and started climbing into my lap. As I tried to maneuver to make sure the computer didn’t get stepped on, Sadie continued climbing over me until she could reach the end table. At that point she grabbed the bag of Meatloaf Morsels and tried to jump off of the couch with them. So it seems that Sadie loves Rachael Ray Nutrish treats so much that she forgets her manners and performs dangerous stunts just to get her paws on a bag.
