You may remember that all the dogs tried their first watermelon for Cricket’s birthday earlier this month. Sheba and Luke loved it the most. We had a lot left over after our Labor Day weekend party, so I cut it up in chunks and put it in the freezer. Even Cricket really loved it this way! However, frozen treats upset Sheba’s stomach, so even though she liked it, she couldn’t have it this way.
We’ve been clicker training with Luke, and as much as he loves fruits and vegetables, they’re not very easy to just throw in the treat pouch to use for training. So when we were offered a chance to try Fruitables Skinny Minis in watermelon flavor, I saw a solution to both problems, and we were happy to!
When I opened the bag I could smell the watermelon! The first ingredient is actually pumpkin but the smell of the watermelon juice which is also in there really stands out. These chewy little treats are free of gluten, wheat, corn, soy and artificial colors or flavors. They use only GMO free canola oil, and each treat has only 2 1/2 calories.
We try to use a variety of treats for Luke’s training, to keep his interest, and if these treats were a hit, they would be added to his treat bag. Here the crew is lined up ready to do their taste testing:
Now, I can’t lie, our dogs aren’t super picky, but they do show preference for some things. I usually judge by seeing whether they wait and are looking for more when they try something new. Their furry butts stayed glued to the floor after their first try of these treats so I knew they were a hit!
We added some to the pouch and headed downstairs for Luke’s 10 minute training session. Below you can see him performing his sit-stay and his down-stay hoping to get one of those treats out of the pouch, which of course he did!
Now the dogs can enjoy their new found love of watermelon year round. Fruitables are made by Vetscience, LLC in the USA. Vetscience is based in Dallas, Texas and was founded by veterinarians and nutritionists.
