Dachshund Nola Reviews: BarkinBonesBakery

     Hi everyone! Today I'm doing a review for the BarkinBonesBakery Etsy shop. I'm very excited about this review!
     About the shop:
We are a small, family owned business based in Stuart, Florida. 

What’s our story?

Our Bakery was officially born in March 2011. However, we have been baking for our four legged kids since early 2007. 

In 2007, Darren, our Beagle, became very ill after consuming tainted commercial dog treats (remember, that's when all of the major pet food recalls started!). This made us question the integrity of pet food companies. What is in the food? What is in the treats? We became "label readers". The more we read, the more conscious we became. The amount of fillers, preservatives, and artificial flavors (just to name a few) were staggering! We could not believe what we were feeding our pups!

After nursing our boy back to health, we began making our own treats. Word caught on and soon family, friends, and co-workers were asking to purchase our cookies and treats. The rest is history!

     I was sent the Organic Sweet Potato Chews to try out, and OMD I LOVED them! They were so good, and they smelled delicious. They're so healthy and organic too! They're the perfect size chew for me and the minions (well, they are too big for Phee, but she's like 2lbs so whatevs). All of us loved them too, which is always a major plus. They came in this adorable mason jar, which is cute and resealable. Did I mention how good they smelled? Dachshund Mommy: they smelled exactly like real sweet potatoes. 

Dehydrated organic sweet potato. That's it.

    About the product: 
Slowly Dehydrated Organic Sweet Potatoes are the only ingredient in our Sweet Potato Chews!

Sweet Potatoes are a good source of dietary fiber and contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, beta carotene, and manganese. 

Dehydrated Sweet Potato Chews are a safer alternative to rawhide and may satisfy your pups desire for a chewy snack. Although it will not replace a toothbrush, it may help keep your dog's teeth clean.

These chews are slowly dehydrated ensure all the nutrients and natural color are retained, making this a nutritious snack!

Each jar contains 3.00oz.. The chews vary in size, but average between 2" and 2.5" long. These Sweet Potato Chews will stay fresh at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 30 days when stored in an airtight container.

      I love the fact that this bakery doesn't use corn or soy, which makes them safe for an allergic pup like me!

That means they're great for other sensitive pups or dogs on a grain free diet.

  1. BarkinBonesBakery sounds like a terric place to puchase high quality, natural and yummy treats! Nola you have done an excellent review and I'm so sorry that you had to share. Totally not fair! LOL!

  2. "creepy baby voice" OMD I love that line...LOL. I bet that's just what they think. Thank's for the gut laugh and the info on the yummy treats.

  3. Those sound yummy. If Mommy would get me those, maybe I'd stay out of her potato chip bag!

  5. Nola, thank you so much for that review! I love the way you get right into those treats!

  6. Dehydrated sweet potatoes are really yummy! Mommy made some using the toaster oven then forgot about it and some of them burnt! But it was STILL yummy. Now she's bought a dehydrator so she's going to dehydrate some sweet potatoes. :)

  7. That sounds like a great Etsy store, and they have a whole lot of lovely treats there! I like it when people are concerned with ingredients and doing those things right, even when it's "Just" for a dog!

  8. Yummy! You should horde all those treats for yourself, Nola. Great review of a great bakery!
