Dogs love their treats – at least mine does way too much.  If Gracie could eat just treats and bits of human food she would be the happiest dog alive. Recently when I was asked if I would like to review Smartbones – an alternative to rawhide bones and treats, I couldn’t pass up the offer.  My only request was the flavor of the Smartbones not be peanut butter.  Yes, Gracie hates peanut butter anything.

What exactly are Smartbones?  Created by Martin Glinsky, Ph.D., they are bones with the benefits of rawhide chews that:

  •  
  • Have a great taste
  • Are safe – rawhide-free yet provide the chewing dog crave
  • Are made with real, dried chicken breast and vegetables
  • Are 99.2% digestible
  • Promotes healthy dental care
  • Is the first chew of its kind to be fortified with vitamins and minerals
  • Comes in 3 varieties – Chicken, Peanut Butter and Dental 
  • Comes in 4 different sizes – Mini, Small, Medium and Large
  • 9 out of 10 dogs prefer Smartbones
  • Are available nationwide at www.smartbones.com
Within a short time the Smartbones arrived in the mail.  I told Gracie she had some new treats and asked her if she’d like one.  I opened the package and she immediately took it out of my hand and meandered into the living room with it.  Good enough.  I proceeded to go feed the cats their wet food, did a couple little chores in the kitchen, and headed back to my desk – I would say I was gone from my desk for about 10 mins.  When I sat back down, I thought something was missing from my area but just couldn’t place ‘what’ that something was.  It then hit me!  The bag of SmartBones was missing.  I looked behind me into the living room and here’s what I saw: 
Yup – you guessed it! Gracie helped herself to the whole bag of Smartbones.  There were 2 left in the package and she was on the last bone! So much for me offering her a rawhide treat to see if she’d prefer that over the Smartbone – like I intended to do; instead, I was worried she’d have a bellyache. Luckily she was just fine. And I certainly think she got her point across as to living up to the SmartBones slogan of “SmartBones for Smart Dogs.”
