The Good: Healthy, Good ingredients, Smells great, Myah loves them!
The Bad: No dental benefits, Could always be less expensive!
The Basics: Myah loves the Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips whenever she needs a reward or wants to work on training.
It is hard not to love the internet for deals as a pet owner! In addition to finding treats less expensive via online sources (they really are, especially if you can bulk up!), so many manufacturers offer deals online as well. My wife, who surfs the web every few days for new deals won a “free” (I hate that because usually, it’s X dollars in the fine print and, yet – in the case of Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips $X.68 at the store - they are not, in any way, free) bag of Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips.
Outside the initial expense of the Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips, and how fast my Siberian Husky, Myah, went through the 6 oz. bag, these were a great treat for reward and training reinforcement!
We picked up the 6 oz. bag of Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips thanks to that online coupon. While it might seem hard to quibble with $.68 for a week’s worth of treats, knowing that they are regularly quite a bit more than that made it harder for me to justify these. That said, Myah made it clear that she loved even the crumb pieces from the Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips dog treats.
The Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips dog treats are soft, jerky-like treats that are shaped and colored to look more or less like actual bacon. Each bacon Beggin’ Strip is about 4 3/4” long, 1 1/8” wide and 1/8” – 3/16” thick. Most of the Beggin’ Strips are curved like actual bacon would be; it mimics bacon very closely.
Ease Of Preparation
This is a ready-to-eat dog treat and only requires one to open the resealable bag to dispense.
The Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips smell exactly like bacon and cheddar cheese and they make my mouth water almost as much as they make Myah salivate! Myah comes to attention the moment we crumple the bag to open it and the second she can smell these Beggin’ Strips, she practices being obedient until the moment they are hers! She has illustrated a clear preference for this dog treat.
The Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips dog treats are fairly healthy. With at least 15% crude protein, 4% crude fat and no more than 3.5% crude fiber and 26% moisture, the Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips offer some decent nutrition to dogs. Made primarily of ground wheat, corn gluten meal, and wheat flour, we feed these conservatively to Myah to prevent her from having any form of digestive tract upsets as a result of the non-meat ingredients. Still, Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips appear to have nothing bad in them. The Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips have over a year shelf life (our bag would have expired in November 2013, had Myah not eaten them up within a week!). As with all dog treats, it is highly recommended that when you give your dog Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips, you make sure they have a decent supply of clean water available. Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips treats are not intended to replace dog food.
If one can resist the smell and not sample the Purina Bacon & Cheese Flavor Beggin’ Strips themselves, the only real thing these treats leave one wishing is that there were more of them for less money!
