Since Barli’s adoption in mid-March, we’ve gone through a lot of training treats. Having spent three of his then five months on Earth in the shelter, Barli had some catching up to do in terms of new experiences and socialization. With lots of positive reinforcement, Barli has blossomed into quite the traveler, with two hotel stays, four nursing home visits with family members, multiple store visits, and several restaurant patio experiences under his collar by the start of this month.
But last week we took Barli on his biggest adventure yet: a four-day trip to the beach in Port Aransas during peak season. We packed our usual travel list for Barli and Tiki–but this time added something new: Hearty Bites™ from Campfire Treats®.
Makers of all-natural dog treats, Campfire Treats produces dog treats made in small batches in California using all-natural, human-grade quality ingredients from U.S. farms and fisheries. Hearty Bites are created from 100% U.S. sourced beef heart. Free of additives and preservatives, the treats are packed with protein for dogs on the go and make a great training treat because of their small size.
Hearty Bites were also an excellent travel treat because they’re non-greasy and odor-free. Even in the hot summer weather we’re experiencing right now, I can attest to the fact that they do not smell, so we felt comfortable taking them to patio restaurants to keep Barli’s focus as diners came and went from the restaurant’s front door…
…and to reward Tiki for modeling good behavior for her little brother…
Hearty Bites were also a great way to help get Barli’s attention as we explored Mustang Island, from the parks…
…to the marinas, where the clanging of lines (and construction in the wake of Hurricane Harvey) left Barli a little worried. The treats really helped to get him to focus on us, and we continued the fun of our walk.
Each container of Hearty Bites contains 3.5 ounces of 100% beef heart; the treats are perfect for popping in your pocket or your favorite treat bag…
Campfire Treats also produces small batch jerky (beef, chicken and beef heart), beef liver treats, dehydrated chicken feet and chicken necks, and dehydrated fish skin chews. And like the Hearty Bites that Tiki and Barli enjoyed, you can opt for all-natural chicken jerky bites or all-natural beef liver bites for training treat-sized morsels.
You’ll find all the Campfire Treats available through their online store and, if you are either an active duty military member or a veteran, be sure to ask about the Campfire Treats military discount as well.
Campfire Treats’ Hearty Bites were a huge success on our trip. I loved them because they’re all-natural, made in the USA treats, and Tiki and Barli loved them for their tasty goodness. A big paws up for Campfire Treats!
