Pug Reviews: Walkies! Fit Bites

Last month I chose Walkies Fit Bites to review from Chewy.com. I was intrigued by a couple of things. First, the addition of taurine. If you have cats, you are probably familiar with taurine as it’s an essential ingredient in cat foods. It’s added here to help improve heart health. With senior dogs, that’s never a bad thing! The other big item was chicken cartilage, which I knew already was a great natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin. Given that, plus the L-carnitine which helps with weight control, the Walkies Fit Bites scream ‘healthy and active’. Right down to their little foot shaped appearance.

Full ingredients:

Pork Liver, Pea Flour, Potatoes, Dried Whole Eggs, Glycerin, Flax Seed, Sugar, Barley Flour, Tapioca Flour, Bacon, Sweet Potatoes, Natural Smoke Flavor, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid), Sodium Lactate, Salt, Lactic Acid, Chicken Cartilage, Palm Oil, Phosphoric Acid, Salmon Oil, Zinc Propionate (A Preservative), Calcium Propionate (A Preservative), Molasses, Caramel Color, Garlic, Mustard, Iron Oxide (A Color), Taurine, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Natural Flavor, Carrots, L-carnitine

While Walkies Fit Bites encourage you and your dog both to be active, I actually like this treat for when Pug is riding in his K9 Sport Sack. I like to have little snacks that I can reach back and give to him in praise for sitting nicely in his bag, but don’t want anything too big that he might drop or choke on.

But when he’s not in his bag, I encourage him to walk as much as he can with his spine and back leg problems. I wan to keep his leg muscles as strong as possible even with his limitations. These bacon flavored Walkies did the trick in making him follow me around the yard, as well as go up the steps.

Overall I can definitely recommend the Walkies Fit Bites for being tasty treats with plenty of beneficial healthy ingredients. But beyond that, I really like what the brand has done in encouraging people to become more active with their pets. Whether you’re pounding the pavement or hitting the trails, Walkies are a great treat to bring along to keep your dog fueled. I especially love these for senior dogs because of those beneficial ingredients I mentioned at the very beginning.
