When it comes to food for our four-legged furry children, the role that treats play in their diet may often be overlooked. Treats are used for training, rewarding good behavior, as an effective way to release energy, or a “just-because-I-love-you.” As a parent to a dog and a cat, I factor in treats as just an important category as their meals. After all, I do spend a lot of time training my dog and finding new creative ways of stimulating her senses when I can’t physically play with her or take her outside.
I have seen first-hand many pet owners feed a healthy, balanced diet but treat their pets with the equivalent of human ‘junk food’ – products filled with artificial flavors, colors, and additives that not only serve no nutritional benefit, but also are unhealthy in the long-run. These are products that no human would ever think was edible, but have no problem handing them over to their beloved pets just because they are cleverly labeled as “bacon dog treats” (but are actually not made with bacon but artificially flavored) and “long-lasting chews” (most likely inedible and made out of artificial flavor-infused materials).
Clear Conscience Pet treats Review
For my very first product review on the blog, I’d like to present a company that is tried-and-true: Clear Conscience Pet. That’s right. Treating your pets with a clear conscience; Clear Conscience Pet treats are not just another tasty treat. CCP is a family-owned pet treat company that has won 9 national awards for excellence and innovation in pet nutrition. Most of their Clean Label treats are 5 ingredients and less- everything is pure, pronounceable, and made with the sole purpose of treating your pets healthier! Whole foods-based, real meat, and minimally processed– what more could you ask for? They offer a variety of treats from training treats, dehydrated treats, hard meaty chews, soft chewy chews, biscuits, and a superfoods gravy food topper that is out of this world! Without deceptive marketing strategies aimed at selling you a product at all costs, CCP is honest and transparent with everything from sourcing to production and beyond. The evidence is in their high-quality products.
***** – 5 Stars
I purchased a package of Clear Conscience Pet Clean Label Beef Sliders during Black Friday sales, and it’s safe to say they are dog (and cat!) magnets. A wag of a tail instantaneously transformed into butt wiggles, drooling mouths, and a bout of paws jumping from the ground to my lap when I opened the bag. Needless to say, I am confident that the Sliders are a new favorite in the house! What I love is how versatile these treats are. Not only do they make a delicious chewy treat for any hound or feline, but they also serve as itty bitty training treats if you cut or rip them into smaller pieces. This method really gets Alaska in the mood to perform those tricks she is usually stubborn about doing. Furthermore, they are guaranteed to satisfy the most eclectic of tastes. My cat is Mr. Picky Eater and he is notorious for turning his nose up to the best treats (in my honest opinion) I’ve offered. But nothing stopped this guy from jumping on the kitchen counter, taking a whiff, and prying a piece out of my fingers in a matter of seconds. Oh boy, was Alaska furious!
There is not one CCP product that Alaska doesn’t go crazy for. Her top recommendations are the Slider Stix and Beef Trachey Chews. Unlike other pet product companies, there are no secrets or hidden objectives with CCP when it comes to what they place on the market for our furry friends. So the next time you treat your pets, ditch the guilt when you choose Clean Label! Not only will your pets love you, but their health will thank you.
