Dog treats have more than one role. They can channel chewing activities, provide mental stimulation or improve diet as well as help with training.
Whether performing a trick or just being sweet, most dog owners think of treats as a reward. And with about 90 percent of dogs motivated by food, treats tend to be one of the most effective rewards to offer.
But there are other reasons for giving treats to dogs. For one, healthy dog treats, or “functional food,” are a good way to feed your dog extra vitamins to help with their dietary needs. And single-ingredient treats like Fig & Tyler’s freeze-dried dog treats are especially gentle on your pet’s system.
So when the people at Fig and Tyler contacted Acme Canine to try their freeze-dried meat treats and write a review on them, we immediately thought of our canine tester, Chester, to take on the assignment.
Our Canine Testers
Mr. Food Motivated Chester was more than willing to give them a try. His owners, Jeff and Michael, chose the chicken breast variety and reported back that Chester loves them! They found the treats perfect for training and hiding around the house for a fun game.
Acme Canine’s food hound, Penny, couldn’t get enough of the Fig & Tyler minnow training treats. She stole them off the counter and devoured the entire bag while we were away.
Our other canine tester, Autumn, was more selective. After trying several varieties, she settled on the lamb liver variety.
Fig & Tyler Training Treats
We liked the training treats because they are perfectly sized 100% freezer dried meat in various flavors ranging from sardine to beef lung—no need to break the treat into smaller pieces or consider some other high-value treat.
To get an idea of how much meat is in a package, the content of the 2.5 oz. Bag equals about 2/3 lb of USDA-inspected raw meat before freeze-drying.
The packages come in three sizes, from 2.5 ounces to 15 ounces, and range in price between $10.99 to 54.99 depending on the size of the bag and type of meat.
And, because we are affiliates, you can get 10% off of your purchase.
Fig & Tyler, the company
In addition to having great treats, the Fig & Tyler company gives back to the community through several programs for rescue dogs and organizations that train therapy and service dogs.
They even have a neat return policy. “If you or your pet are not completely satisfied with any of the products you purchased on our website, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that you include your order number and a brief description of why you wish to return the product. A member of our team will then get in touch with you about the next steps. If you prefer to speak with us instead, please give us a call at (212) 457-1335.”
Our dogs loved the treats, and we love giving them! But remember: If you’re feeding high-value treats, reduce the amount of kibble you give your dog, so they stick to their energy intake for the day.
Acme Canine and our canine testers give Fig & Tyler training treats 5-paws up for quality ingredients, company integrity, and commitment to give back to the community. We think you will enjoy the treats as well.
