REVIEW: Blue Buffalo Wild Bits Training Treats

Disclosure: Chewy sent a bag of Blue Buffalo Wild Bits Training Treats to Lapdog Creations, free of charge, for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

Blue Buffalo Wild Bits Training Treats

Where to Find:


If you read Penny's first review on Tuesday, you know those amazing folks over at spoiled my kids rotten this month with not one, but two items for review!  The second item we received was a complete surprise, and boy were the Lapdogs happy when we opened up that familiar Chewy box. 


Blue Buffalo Wild Bits Training Treats (part of Blue's Wilderness Trail Treats line) are healthy, nutritious, grain-free and Made in the USA with no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors. They are currently available in three flavors - Salmon, Duck, and Chicken - and each recipe starts with real meat or fish as the first ingredient.

We received a bag of the Duck treats for review and while it's not a protein source I typically buy for the Lapdogs, it certainly seems as though they sure do love duck (which has been duly noted by this Mama).  Can you tell from the photos?

As you may imagine, we are going through a lot of training treats with Penny at the moment. However, I'm finding the tiny rewards great for Tut and Sophie as well (it's hard to leave older kids out when a pup is working on - and being rewarded for - her training). While the treats contain DHA to support a puppy's cognitive development, I see no reason why my seniors can't enjoy a few as well. Especially since Wild Bits also contain Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids to promote healthy skin and coats.

And, because of the training going on at home, I am constantly shoving small treats in my pockets... after all, one must always be ready with rewards for studious puppies.  Because of this, I've not only been looking for good quality training treats, but ones that are pleasant smelling and not sticky. There's nothing quite like a pocket full of slimy, sticky, stinky treats on a hot summer day, right? Well, I am very happy to report that Wild Bits are not at all slimy or sticky. You can stick a few in your pocket and not have the skunks and raccoons chasing you around the yard (I can't promise the hounds' noses won't sniff you out however).

By the way, have you ever tried to photograph a puppy with treats before?  Treats that smell delicious and probably taste even better... did I mention these were duck?

Penny is certainly enjoying her new-found job of reviewing items for the blog, however I'm sure we'll be working on her product-placement modeling skills for quite some time to come.

I will be adding Wild Bits to our regular line up of training treats as Penny makes her way through Puppy Kindergarten and then goes into Basic Obedience.  She is very food motivated and doing quite well (Teutul is also responding marvelously to "Penny. Come." these days).   

You can find all three flavors of Wild Bits, along with the rest of the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Trail Treats line at where 1-2 day shipping is always free on orders of $49 or more.  Stock up for the summer... if you've got a new pup coming, or old dogs who want to learn new tricks, you can't go wrong with Wild Bits.  While you're at it, why not order one of Penny's new favorite toys as well, the Kong Squeezz Ball with Handle

Toys + Treats + Free Shipping = you can't go wrong with Chewy!

The pictures of Penny getting between the treats and the bigger pups are surely funny. Jeffrey's puppy Tank loves his Blue Buffalo puppy food. They seem to make a top quality product.

All my jackets have treats in the pockets so I'm always ready. Samba used to raid them if I didn't hang a jacket up right away.
