Dog Treat Review: Nature Nosh
Scores Big with Treat Review Team

by Carrie Boyko, CEB
Treat Review Team Banner



The results are in and our Treat Review Team has sent 2 Paws Up for Nature Nosh's USDA Organic treats. We especially enjoyed that they were not your typical, chicken, liver and beef flavors. After all, our pups deserve a little variety, even though we may know too much variety isn't good for our fido's tummies. 


While Beef  Liver "Wellington" was certainly a hit, the Chicken Liver Parmesan made my boys' eyes light up, and Pumpkin Pie was certain to pair well with Thanksgiving's Best for a November special-occasion treat. Wow! I could have noshed on the Pumpkin Pie flavored treats; they smelled delish.


One interesting point is the availability of USDA Organic liver. It's tough to source and Nature Nosh is proud to be one of few that are able to sport this USDA Organic logo on a liver-based treat that is made in the U.S. That's a lot of safe, healthy ingredients built right in for your Fido.


One additional perk that appealed to me was that despite there being no artificial preservatives, the product has a great shelf life, prompted by the addition of mixed Tocopherols (a form of vitamin E often used as a healthy preservative in natural foods). I loved seeing the expiration date on each bag and knowing that my pups had a long, long time to finish them if needed. 


And guess what is NOT in them?

Oliver Enjoys his Nature Nosh
Sounds good, huh? I love that there is nothing lurking in these yummies to leave toxins in my best furry friends. And apparently, the dogs sensed this too. There were no hesitant looks or reluctant munchers. It was chow down--across the board.

Tanner Poses with Treats on Paws
When I brought the bags out to let Tanner and Oliver take a whiff, I immediately had 2 eager photo models. I've got them trained now. When they see the camera and a product come out, it's definitely time to behave and practice their "Stay". It's a clear signal that they'll be getting some rewards for good behavior and these treats were major motivation.

Nature-Nosh Pyramid
I had a little fun tantalizing them with a Nature-Nosh pyramid in front of them for a picture. I'm sure they were saying to themselves, "Hold your stay. Just a few more minutes and I'll get to eat them!" And eat them they did. 


Would your dog like to try some Nature Nosh Treats? Who wouldn't want to offer their pup an ultra-premium, certified organic treat. No wheat, no corn, no soy, no toxins. Just wholesome ingredients.

These sound great. I try to limit their carbs but that means less variety. I especially like the organic liver. Your blog is great and I will be subscribing.

Kathy said...

They do sound like something that is healthy but tasty. And I try to look for grain free and healthy alternatives for my pup who has a very sensitive stomach.

I follow your blog both on facebook and by email.

I think I'd enjoy the Pumpkin Pie flavor the most.
I wonder how they'd go with whipped cream? ;)

I think the Pumpkin Pie would be most enjoyable if I were a dog because I don't like anything liver. If it was just Chicken Parmesan I would be all over that. But, of course, if I was a dog, I wouldn't really care, would I? I think my dogs would love the Beef Liver Wellington the most. I try to stay away from chicken because after a long time Scruffy started throwing up so they only get real chicken and white rice when they are really sick. I have 6 dogs, 3 cats, and 2 bunnies that I bottlefed from babies or they would have died.

I think that if I had to eat a dog treat I would want something that reminds me of Thanksgiving Dinner so I'm going with Turkey liver... but for Lola I'm going to pumpkin (but it might have something to do with the boxer on the bag!)

Daisy and I have a routine. If she sees me getting dressed (with makeup) she knows I'm going to work and she starts whining right away for the treat I give her when I leave. She would love some variety instead of just the Milk-Bones currently in the pantry! Vicki.bechet@gmail.com

I'm very impressed with the ingredients in Nature Nosh treats - impressed too by all the added "junk" that's NOT in them too!

Why would other companies add artificial colors? I've never seen one of our pack refuse a treat over it's color - lol
