The Good: Healthy, Good ingredients, Smells great, Myah enjoys them!
The Bad: No dental benefits, Could always be less expensive, Because they are soft, dogs eat them incredibly quickly.
The Basics: Myah loves the Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni and I like them for her, save the lack of dental benefits and how fast she goes through them!
For Myah’s stocking this year, our Siberian Husky got a number of wonderful treats. Arguably the most common of these treats is the Pup-Peroni Original Bacon Flavor treats and Myah likes them quite a bit. In fact, I was surprised by how much Myah likes them, for a treat that she consumes so very quickly! My wife and I have taken to making these treats stretch by breaking them up and using them in training exercises with Myah. Otherwise, for the speed at which she consumes them, the Pup-Peroni Original Bacon flavored treats might be considered a bit too expensive for us for her.
Outside how fast my Siberian Husky, Myah, went through the 10 oz. bag, these were a great treat for reward and training reinforcement!
We picked up the 10 oz. bag of Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni on clearance at a local discount store when we were shopping for gifts for Myah. Myah made it clear from the way she came running every time the bag was opened that she loved the Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni dog treats.
The Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni dog treats are soft, beef stick-like treats that are shaped and colored to look more or less like human-consumable beef sticks (like Slim Jims). Each Pup-Peroni Original Bacon Flavor is about 4 3/4” long and 3/8” in diameter. The Pup-Peroni sticks are red-brown and meaty looking.
Ease Of Preparation
This is a ready-to-eat dog treat and only requires one to open the resealable bag to dispense.
The Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni smell exactly like bacon and beef and they make my mouth water almost as much as they make Myah salivate! They smell just like human beef sticks. Myah comes to attention the moment we crumple the bag to open it and the second she can smell these Pup-Peroni, she practices being obedient until the moment they are hers! She has illustrated a clear preference for this dog treat.
The Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni dog treats are fairly healthy. With at least 24% crude protein, 12% crude fat and no more than 2% crude fiber and 24% moisture, the Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni offer some decent nutrition to dogs. Made primarily of beef, meat by-products, and soy grits, we were thrilled to find a major treat with meat as one of the main ingredients (which is surprisingly rare for dog food and dog treats). Still, Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni appear to have nothing bad in them. The Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni have over a year shelf life (our bag would have expired in April 22 2015, had Myah not eaten them up within two weeks!). As with all dog treats, it is highly recommended that when you give your dog Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni, you make sure they have a decent supply of clean water available. Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni treats are not intended to replace dog food.
It is only when Myah is super-gorged that she does not come running for the Del Monte Original Bacon Flavor Pup-Peroni treats. If they helped keep her teeth clean or she took longer to actually enjoy them, it would be much easier to rate this Pup-Peroni a bit higher. Still, they are good and Myah enthusiastically endorses them!
