• Review: Dogswell Happy Hips Sweet Potato Chews

    sweet-potato.jpg

    It’s pretty ironic that a dog whose last name is “Chew” likes to swallow things whole.Kash does not like treats that force him to chew. He prefers little snacks that he can swallow whole, so that he can go about his normal business. After all, Boston Terriers are the busy-bodies of the dog world.

    Kona, on the other hand, loves chewy treats. When he was younger, we used to give him pig hooves and bully sticks all the time. However, we eventually put an end to this because they were starting to really smell up our carpets.

    Then the other day, my boyfriend found a new treat that is healthy and doesn’t leave a nasty dead cow smell on our rug. They’re dehydrated Sweet Potato Chews made by Dogswell. Similar in texture to rawhides, these chewies are all natural and have a high content of Beta-carotene and glucosamine for their joints.

    When I opened the bag, Kona came running toward me. I gave him a big piece and reminded him to eat it slowly. To my surprise, he waddled over to the carpet, layed down and began to chew it at a semi-normal pace. Kash, on the other hand, took one bite, realized it would actually require work for him to finish, then spit it out.

    You can’t win them all.
    For the dogs who actually liked to chew their treats, we highly recommend the Dogswell Sweet Potato Chews.
