Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog will do anything for these treats!!! These are by far my dogs favorite treats, he will do anything for them. He is now a year and a half old and i still get thm for him because he loves them so much! October 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for 15 week old german shepherd These puppy biscuits are excellent for my 15 week old GSD. I have used these during training, easily breaks apart for special rewarding but decent enough not to break into pieces in your pocket. Right now his limit is 4 biscuits per day. Based on weight. The biscuit has no odor & perfect to carry in your pocket. We have also used it to encourage our GSD to ride in a travel crate in the back of our pick-up truck. Now he is excited & eager knowing that a biscuit awaits him when we head out. Nutro please continue to make this fantastic product. September 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by My puppy loves these! I usually use kibble as a training treat for my toller-collie-shephard mix puppy, but when I need something extra special I use these treats. My puppy will do anything for them!They are a bit large as training treats for a medium breed puppy when young, but break easily into pieces with one hand. Now that he is getting bigger, a whole treat is perfect.I have not had any problem with the smell of these treats like one reviewer. I keep a handful off them in my coat pocket and have never noticed a smell, even when breaking them in half. Maybe that other reviewer got a bad batch?Only four stars because they are so expensive, but otherwise a great product! March 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Smell Terrible! My dog has always eaten the Puppy Drumsticks that were available in the purple box until they were replaced with this treat. When I went to purchase my usual product some months ago at Pet Supermarket, I was told that the packaging had been changed and was steered toward this "new" package. I searched everywhere, online as well, for the older drumsticks and could not find them. I relented and purchased the newer package and have been very unhappy with this product. They smell TERRIBLE and my dog's breath is even worse than it was before. You must wash your hands after handling them because they smell so bad. I hate that you changed this product and will no longer purchase the new treats. Wish you would reconsider putting the Puppy Drumsticks back on the market. These new ones get 2 thumbs down from my family!!! January 9, 2013
