Antos Chicken D'Light dog treats - Review
Last year Henry was lucky enough to try the Antos Cerea range of dog chews, which he loved. You can see his review here. Now it's Skipper and Bandit's turn to try some tasty Antos snacks. They had the lovely job of tasting some of the Antos Chicken D'Light snacks.
The Chicken D'Light treats are made from 100% chicken breast (apart from the Duck Chicken D'Light which is made from 100% Duck breast). These snacks are 100% natural, a good source of protein and are low in fat. There are no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives and each 100g pack is re-sealable, ensuring the meat is kept fresh.
They come in five different varieties - Fillet, Steak, Duck, Sticks and Steak & Cheese. Skipper and Bandit got to try the Chicken Fillet and the Duck varieties. The fillet packet contained large dried chicken fillets, whilst the duck packet had smaller strips.
These must smell really tasty as they dogs were very keen to find out what was in the packets! They tried the duck variety first which were long strips and were gobbled up quickly, especially by Bandit! They made a great quick treat to reward good behaviour. They are low in fat as well so they are ideal for dogs who are watching their weight.
Next we tried the chicken fillets, which were larger than the duck variety. Bandit, being the greedy one of the two, tucked into his straight away and really enjoyed it. Skipper can be very fussy so when he initially just sniffed and licked the chicken fillet I thought he wasn't going to like it. But he was soon taking the treat under a chair (so Bandit couldn't steal it!) and tucking in. He must have enjoyed it too as he kept trying to pinch more out of the packet!
My overall impression was that these were good quality treats that the dogs really enjoyed. Skipper and Bandit are used to having biscuits and chews so it was nice to give them a different type of treat, and it was even better that they were natural and so good for them.
You will find Antos' range of dog snacks in many pet shops and garden centres. They are also available from many online stores, a list of which can be found at www.antosuk.com
