The Good: Healthy, Good ingredients, Smells meaty, Myah loves them!
The Bad: Expensive, No dental benefits
The Basics: Myah enjoys the Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor, but despite having great ingredients, they are not enough to enthusiastically endorse for big dogs.
After a year and a half of living together in Michigan, my wife and I finally wandered into the local discount store near the grocery store at which we regularly shop. There, we discovered discounted dog treats and we were both pleasantly surprised when we found some wonderful brand-name dog treats at severely discounted prices. Myah was thrilled by some of the treats we found there and the Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits we found for her seemed to be especially enjoyed by her. Her first experience with Buddy Biscuits were the Roasted Chicken flavor treats and Myah ate them right up!
In fact, lacking dental benefits and how fast Myah went through them, these treats were hardly a value, except for the fact that we managed to find them at the discount store! At full price ($5 or more per bag) the Roasted Chicken Buddy Biscuits are a bit harder to endorse.
We picked up the 6 oz. bag of Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor on clearance for less than $2, which is a good price for the small, chewy treats that do nothing for a dog’s teeth. What makes it worthwhile over so many other snacks or foods is how Myah continues to be enamored with them. These were a great treat to use as a training reinforcement tool. Myah sat pretty, did high fives, and army crawls for it and did other basic tricks that she has resisted doing in order to get the Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor dog treats. Her willingness to do so many tricks for them, makes the Roasted Chicken Flavor a wonderful training tool!
The Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor dog treats are little brown dog snacks that look like tiny gingerbread men! When the bag is opened initially, the Roasted Chicken Flavor smell powerfully of bacon. The smell of bacon is overwhelming, which is weird because they are supposed to be chicken flavored. Each snack is approximately 1 1/16" tall by 3/4” wide and 1/4" thick. The surface of the Buddy Biscuit is soft and mealy.
Ease Of Preparation
This is a ready-to-eat dog treat and only requires one to open the bag to dispense. The bag is resealable, which is nice
The soft Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor has no discernable dental benefits, so despite the fact that Myah comes running whenever the bag is crinkled is not enough to say they are amazing for dogs. Still, Myah loves them and, to be fair, Myah’s breath takes on the bacon aroma of these treats for about an hour whenever we give them to her.
Myah loves these. This is one of the treats she illustrated a strong preference for when given a choice between this and other treats. Because they are small and delicious, they make a great training treat for medium sized dogs.
The Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor dog treats are very healthy. With at least 10% crude protein, 5% crude fat and no more than 5% crude fiber and 30% moisture, the Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor offer some decent nutrition to dogs. These are traded on a reputation of being corn free and the ingredients list supports that assertion. Made primarily of chicken, unbleached enriched wheat flour, and tapioca starch, Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor appear to have nothing bad in them. In fact, because of the lack of extensive preservatives, these treats only have about a year shelf life (our bag would have expired in October 2014, had Myah not eaten them right up!). As with all dog treats, it is highly recommended that when you give your dog Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor, you make sure they have a decent supply of clean water available. Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor treats are not intended to replace dog food.
Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits Roasted Chicken Flavor treats are good, especially for those who want to give nutritious snacks that are made in the U.S.A. to their dogs. But they are small, expensive, and lack a real dental benefit, which is a detraction as far as I am concerned.
