Who's a Good Dog? #ChewyInfluencer

"Who's a good dog?" 

What dog owner hasn't asked this question?  I know I have, multiple times in succession on occasion.  Though I frequently complain about my dogs and their antics, I do feel that they are pretty good dogs.

I frequently bribe my dogs with treats.  I also frequently give them treats just because.  My favorite treats to give my crew are meat-based treats with limited ingredients.

Enter ZiwiPeak Good-Dog Venison Jerky Treats provided by the nice folks at

As most know, I am a huge fan of venison.  My dogs love it, it's good for them.  ZiwiPeak sources theirs from New Zealand, which is perfectly acceptable to me.  These are air-dried, so I don't feel that they are overly processed, and contain very limited, simple ingredients.

They are small, thin strips, and easily break apart into smaller pieces.  The bag, though light, contains an abundant amount of treats, particularly if you break them into smaller pieces.  The crumble factor within the bag was virtually non-existent, which always makes me happy. 

Faolan (and Neeko and Bruce) love these.  Faolan can be a bit of a treat snob, but he readily ate these, and barked me at me demanding more.  This is his ultimate seal of approval. 

While I didn't feel that they had much of a smell at all, Faolan found them good enough to scent roll on.  I was able to catch the tail end of this on video, along with what I refer to as his "cute face" as he anticipates more treats.

Overall, I am pleased.  Venison-based treats with limited ingredients, that I feel good giving to my dogs.  Simply because they are good dogs.  Some of the time...

I was provided with complimentary product.  All opinions are my own.

Black & White Sunday

Handsome Bruce.  I took him for a hike today, and he willingly went into the creek.  He really only enjoys the water up to about his elbows, unlike Neeko and Faolan, enjoy a good deep spot.

Recent Raw Meals

After the break are photos of some of my dogs meals over the last few weeks.  These photos are just a sample, and by no means conclusive.  I try to offer my dogs as many different proteins and cuts as I can source and afford.  I believe in balance over time, and feed a mostly PMR diet, with some dehydrated, premade, and ground meats thrown in.

WARNING - photos of raw dog food after the break.

Some photos from the last week.  They are all crappy phone photos, but a little bit of a recap of the last seven days.  Some of these have already been shared on Facebook and/or Instagram.

Sometimes her tail is as big as her body.  It seems that way, at least.

Faolan and I were out and about last Saturday. To the Farmers' Market, to a strawberry festival at a local winery.  We had fun, and he made many new fans.

I shared this photo on Facebook.  We were waiting in line for strawberry shortcake, and he was resting his paw on my foot.  He was so incredibly well-behaved, and I couldn't have been more proud.  I adore this sweet little boy.

Nobody wanted to confess to chewing up the brush.  My money is on Bruce or Faolan.

I took the princess for DIY dog wash at Pet Supplies Plus on Sunday.  She wasn't exactly happy with me.
