August Chewy Review

It's that time again!  It's time for the August review!
The box has arrived!
 This month we decided to try Castor & Pollux's Good Buddy Cheddar Cheese Flavor treats.
 Why did we chose these treats?
Cuz I is a good buddy...
I iz good buddy too!
These treats are made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats, canola oil, dried cheddar, dried whey product, dried eggs, dried kelp and rosemary extract.  That's it. 

They are larger than what we usually gives our pups as treats - roughly 1 3/4 inch.  Keep this in mind if you have smaller pups.
They are also extremely hard and crunchy (in case you have pups with dental issues or trouble chewing).  Harlow and Monty couldn't do their usual crunch-and-swallow routine, these actually required some chewing.
I can see these lasting us for some time, mainly due to their size and hardness.  They aren't a the kind of treat you can give as a reward.  The pups love them though!

Our ratings:

Taste:  Our pups loved them!  Both Monty and Harlow are finicky.  If it seems healthy they won't touch it.

Smell:  They smelled good enough for us to eat.

Size:  A little too big for us - I could see giving them a few too many during the day.

Consistency:  Very hard, which isn't a problem with our pups.

Would we try these again?  I'm not sure, but that is due to our preference not the product.  Our pups are very treat oriented and I like tiny treats so that I can give them a couple in a row for good behavior.


  1. they sound like a great treat to give when you are about to leave the house - keeps them busy while you head out the door :)

  2. We break up big treats so they last longer so we probably are the same we prefer small one. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

    1. We thought of that - these treats are super hard. I can't break them apart that easily.

  3. Did some buddy say cheese flavored!

  4. Looks like a good bedtime snack!

  5. Those looks yummy! Sometimes, if the treats are big enough, mom will break them up into thirds. She thinks we're dumb! BOL!

  6. These sound awesome and who doesn't love cheese! We're putting these on our Chewy list for next time mom orders! Great review, Monty and Harlow!

    Love ya lots♥

  7. Howdy mates. These treats sound great to us cause mum says we are greedy and it would slow us down. Loved your photos!
    No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  8. Taste testing yummy treats...don't think it gets too much better. We are jealous

  9. We go for smaller treats too. Just ordered a supply of Zuke's Mini Naturals. Great little grooming treats or recall rewards. Did I thank you for recommending Chewy? We had so much trouble getting our dog food and probiotics from our local store. Now we order everything from Chewy and it is delivered right away. Oh, it's less expensive as well. We have come to love Chewy.

    1. They are a really great company. We love them!

  10. You did a very very good review there MOM!!!
    Chewy should be happy with it!!

  11. We LOVE Chewy! Based on your description, I think that these treats would work better for large dogs...especially if they cannot be broken easily. Thank you for sharing your review!

  12. "treat oriented" I heard that! Sounds like a healthy treat. I admit I buy the big box of the big Milkbones but I break them in half. Joe doesn't like the large treat but Sable just wants treats 24/7 and the bigger the better.

  13. You two are so lucky to get to review great treats!!! *drools* and I am thinking... Mama... please!!! Though she prefers small moist rewards or small crunchies to work on my impulse control... I love them ALL! Thank you for sharing your review!
