Dr. Tim's Genuine Freeze Dried Treats

I am not sure who enjoys getting new treats to try-me or the dogs.  Seriously.  While I usually don't eat them myself, I get giddy about new treats for them.

Having said that, I must admit that I am picky about what treats I will offer them.  Neeko and Faolan can both be somewhat picky about what treats they will eat.

Chewy kindly sent us some Dr. Tim's Genuine Oxtail Chips to try out.  

Upon opening these, I realized they immediately met one of main criteria for treats-They are sourced and made in the USA!  These are also single ingredient, which I always appreciate.

These are sliced beef oxtails, which have been freeze dried. My dogs are big fans of raw oxtails.  As many know, I am opposed to cooked/roasted bones for my particular dogs.  However, these are not cooked, but freeze dried.  To ease my mind, I cut and sawed through one of these with a sharp knife, and it did not splinter at all, but crumbled.  I felt perfectly safe offering these to my crew.

Did the Dogs Like Them?
Short answer-yes!!  Neeko sang, Bruce howled, and silly Faolan danced around, couldn't sit still, and then barked at me to hurry up and give him one.  Needless to say, some funny photos were taken while trying to get Faolan to calm down for a treat...

"Give me that treat now, momma!"
All three dogs LOVED these.  These are decent sized treats, and lasted longer than I expected, probably about 40 seconds each.  They were all willing to work hard for one, but Faolan was getting a bit impatient with me.  He wanted some delicious goodness. 

Bruce licking his chops afterwards.
So to summarize-single ingredient (meat) treats that are made and sourced in the US that my dogs love.  I am very pleased with them.

These treats are currently on sale via  

I received complimentary product.  All opinions are strictly my own.


  1. I think I will have to try some of these out. Especially since you mentioned that it crumbled instead of splinter. Looks like Faolan wants one right now!

  2. Those look like awesome treats! I'm with you on being excited even the dogs get new treats! Lol

  3. Those were sure lip smacking good. Glad your pups enjoyed. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Great review! We're going to give these a try later this month, so couldn't resist seeing how you liked them.

  5. Adorable! That photo of the three of them waiting for a treat: too cute! We're going to try these ourselves soon, too, so I'm glad to hear that your pack enjoyed them!

  6. Freeze dry sounds like a great way to preserve doggie treats. We have never heard of this before.

  7. Mom is always looking for new GOOD treats, good to taste and good for us - and made in the USA - we are going to be sure she checks these out for our next Chewy order.
