I live with two amazing dogs – Norman, a very handsome Jack Russell Terrier and Harry Kalas, an odd-looking, but undeniably cute Welsh Corgi/Queensland mix.
Norman & Harry Kalas
And I’m not sure why, but I like to think they have refined palates. They are vegetarians and enjoy seaweed, raw almonds and edamame for snacks. Don’t get me wrong… they also go bananas for the occasional piece of cheese (my husband eats dairy) and they live for veggie lunch meats and Gardein goodies. On top of all of that, they eat vegetarian dry and wet foods – so they’re definitely fed. The one thing that was lacking, however, was delicious & nutritious treats! Enter Max & Ruffy’s Natural Organic Treats for Dogs. I was drawn to the line, not only because of the treats themselves, but the mission behind them:
Mission – To be the preferred source of vegan, eco-friendly, non-outsourced, and nutritious dog treats that lend to the health and well-being of our clients’ companions.
Max & Ruffy’s treats come in wonderful, inventive flavors – using savory and sweet ingredients like, butternut squash, ginger and coconut oil and are available in 2 sizes,“original” size and “mini bites” which are perfect for small dogs or training treats. So… why not do a taste test with my little guys and find their favorites?
I started with Mother Quinoa’s Pumpkin Patch. Harry Kalas could not get enough, Norman not so much (but he’s quite finicky). The next day we tried Molasses Explosion 1919 – both dogs loved so much… that I had to try myself (why should the dogs have all of the fun?). Seriously tasty!!! In the following days, they went on to enjoy the Powerhouse Sweet Potato & Alfalfa and the Kelp Highway. Neither pooch was too crazy about the Five-Star Blueberry, but I gave them a try – and you can really taste the ginger! I saved the flavor I thought they’d enjoy the most for last… and man, was I right. They went so nuts for the W.P. Pizza that I actually caught Harry with his head in the box.
Not only are they great for you own brood, but in this day of doggie birthday parties… How amazing would it be to give a gift basket of Max & Ruffy’s Dog Treats and cool toy or 2?!
