Fit Friday: The Good Stuff

The good part of staying fit is always the food. Fitdog Friday doesn't always have to be about how we exercise the mind and body. I think it can be about how we feed it as well.

My dogs are both fed a raw diet. But raw meat is hard to use as treats without a major yuck factor. When I was contacted by and asked to review some Orijen Regional Red freeze dried treats, I had to say yes. Freeze dried is the next best thing to raw, and these treats contain only the meat and liver from lamb, wild boar, and Angus beef, and are sourced and produced in Canada.

Lets just say, these were a major hit with my dogs. I used some for flyball practice last night with Koira, and some to help me get these photos this morning. Something I really liked about these treats is that they don't leave any residue on my hands like some freeze dried foods can- and there was no nasty liver smell either! Also, they are large enough to be easily visible when used as a tossed treat to reward motion.

Koira found these treats to be lip licking good, and Pallo agreed (though without the photo shoot). In fact, these treats were good enough for Koira to be okay with taking these photos in the yard on a Friday morning, despite it being garbage day. If you know Koira, you know that means she not only loves these treats, but has made some progress in her sound phobia as well.
