Dad's HomeStyle Crunchies

I'm always in search of new, affordable treats for Piper.

Back in October, I posted a thread about Rachel Ray's Just 6 Dog Treats that I purchased. In the beginning, Piper loved them, but after a few days, he was unethusiastic about getting the treats. So in the end, Piper rated those treats One Tail Wag.

Today, we're testing another variety I've never heard of before called Dad's HomeStyle Crunchies, From the Farm to the Bowl - Healthy Oven-baked Treats for Dogs. An 18 ounce bag costs $2.99.

- No artificial flavors, colors or artificial preservatives
- Oven-baked with the finest local ingredients
- Crunchy texture helps remove plaque and tartar
- High quality ingredients

"Dad's" is described as a family-owned and operated pet food company and the address is Meadville, Pennsylvania.

The treats are cookie-like and shaped like hearts with cranberries and molasses, oatmeal, etc. Has anyone had experience feeding these treats to your poochie?

They smell good enough for me to eat one !

Piper has had two treats and apparently thought they were lip smacking good but we'll see after a few days if he is still excited.

Nellie loves them! I just bought her the cranberry & oatmeal and the banana nut muffin ones today. You are right, they smell so good!

I've never heard of them, but am always looking for new treats! Do they have corn and/or wheat in the ingredients? We've cut them out of Samantha's diet because of allergies that appeared to be food related in the past.

I'll list the ingredients

Whew, this writing is small.

Wheat Flour
Ground Wheat
Oatmeal
Animal fat preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid
Cranberries
Dried Cane Molasses
Salt
Natural vanilla flavor

Crude Protein Min. 11%
Crude Fat, Min. 5%
Crude Fiber, Max. 5%
Moisture, Max. 12%

If your doggie can't have wheat, then these are probably not an option.

Having looked at this a little closer, my next question is what is "mixed tocopherols"? Guess I'll be doing a little Googling.

This company has a website: dadspetfoods.com

I make most of my treats, Dylan had allergies very young and this has worked for him. I also use as much organic ingredients as possible.
