The Good: Good ingredients, Smells very meaty, Myah goes for them! Affordable.
The Bad: Myah shows a preference for other flavors over them, Lack of decent dental benefits!
The Basics: The Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz dog treats are enjoyed by Myah as part of our training.
Myah has been training with my wife and I lately and to that end, she gets a variety of treats. Recently, we picked her up the Pedigree Smoky Bacon & Cheddar Flavor Stackerz (reviewed here!) and when she enjoyed those, we picked up the Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz. The Stackerz are still a relatively new treat from Pedigree and our Siberian Husky Myah has been enjoying these thanks to a good sale on big bags of them. Unfortunately for Stackerz, Myah liked, but did not love, the Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz.
We picked up the 25 oz. resealable bag of Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz on sale for under ten dollars, which is a great price for a month’s worth of large dog treats. These treats grabbed Myah’s attention with their strong scent and she became fairly willing to follow basic commands for a decent period of time when these treats were in play. However, when we had other Stackerz at the same time and Myah never once chose the Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz first; they were always her second choice.
The Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz dog treats are long, soft meaty stick treats that are brown and red, as if they were a blend of two different types of meat. When the bag is opened initially, the Stackerz smell very strongly of meat, like the exact scent of a Hickory Farms meat log. Each snack is approximately 4 1/4" long by 3/4” wide and 3/8" thick. The surface of the Stackerz dog treat is like a processed meat snack (think Slim Jim) without a casing. The treat is soft, but not very breakable and I was surprised to notice it has segments, so it can be easily torn into three pieces. Given how I have a bigger dog, we never had to make these smaller!
Ease Of Preparation
This is a ready-to-eat dog treat and only requires one to open the bag to dispense. The bag reseals after it is closed, so the meaty smell does not effervesce away from the bag very long.
The soft Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz does very little to freshen dog breath and/or clean plaque one’s dog’s teeth. This treat is too soft for that and for big dogs like Myah, she barely chews it, so it is a poor dental aid.
That said, Myah enjoys the Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz treats enough that she eats them up when they are offered to her. Because the treat is aromatic, Myah perked up whenever the bag was opened and it is one of the few treats I’ve seen her really sniff for. When she smells it, she comes for it! Whenever Myah could choose between the Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz and any other treat, she chooses the other treat.
The Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz dog treats are very healthy. With at least 8 % crude protein, 1% crude fat and no more than 4.5% crude fiber and 23% moisture, the Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz offer some decent nutrition to dogs. Made primarily of beef, wheat flour and wheat starch, I was impressed by how the Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz start with real meat ingredients and have other good ingredients. These treats do not have extensive preservatives; our bag, purchased in September, had an April 28, 2015 expiration date. As with all dog treats, it is highly recommended that when you give your dog Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz, you make sure they have a decent supply of clean water available. Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz treats are not intended to replace dog food.
Pedigree Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavor Stackerz are reasonably-priced and Myah likes them, though they are not her favorite and they do nothing for dental health.
