Keeping Our Dogs Safe For a special treat, be sure to check out the Nudges Premium Cuts; they are 100% dog safe, made in the USA and have no artificial flavors or fillers; and are full of nutrients and vitamins. As many of you may remember, my baby Charlie, was poisoned by dog treats a little over 18 months ago. I thought I did everything right - always checked the snacks I gave him and made sure that the snacks I bought are from reputable companies. Little did I know that a lot of companies here in the US branch out to China, and that’s how our treats were poisoned and my 20-pound Lhasa Apso was near death after eating just one piece of the treat. I’ve always look for “Made in the USA” on treat packaging, but those treats are hard to come by, and if I do find some, they are so high priced that it’s really a “treat.” I was super excited to find a treat while I was at Walmart the other day that fit the bill. It was 100% made in the U.S.A. with no by products and all natural with no artificial flavors or fillers. I was impressed with the price – under $4 for a small package. They also came in larger packages for a value price.

Reward Your Furry Friend With Nudges Healthy Dog Treats With so many proud pet parents in this state, most of the grocery stores carry a wide variety of pet food and treats, especially those made with natural ingredients. While at Walmart last week, we found Nudges, which are chicken jerky for dogs. We have been training our dogs and wanted some healthy dog treats to use as a reward. After just a week, my dog has started rolling over at just the sight of the Nudges bag, so I would call it a success. It can be challenging to keep your pet focused when walking through a wilderness area. There are plenty of distracting smells and sounds, not to mention the occasional critter that might run by. I brought some of the Nudges treats with me to use as a reward for Jack’s good behavior. Every now and then, I would stop to reward him with a treat and to remind him that the quail and other birds did not want to be his friend. If you are looking for high quality dog treats, it is worth checking out Nudges. They smell great when you open the package, are made in the USA with real chicken, and do not contain any artificial flavors or fillers. Nudges are a treat your dogs will love and you can feel good about giving to them.

Nudging Bella Notte with Love Shane couldn’t wait to get home to give Bella her new toys and her treats! Before we even unloaded our bags from the store, Bella was sniffing around more than usual, and I could tell that she could smell the treats. The second I grabbed the bag of Nudges, she sat down and gave me a high-five, which is my go-to command for her to earn treats. Once I actually gave her one, it was even more obvious that she was a fan.

Not only did she love eating the treats, but she also loved playing with the toy. I wasn’t sure if she’d be able to figure out how to get the treat but it only took her about 10 minutes to get it out. It was perfect because it was long enough to keep her occupied for a bit but not so long that she got bored. I’m definitely a fan of Nudges now and just wish I’d heard of them sooner! They have an ingredient list that I approve of, and I have no guilt giving them to my pup {unlike those left over French fries the other day}.

Puppy Safety Training Tips Having a new puppy is A LOT of work. I mean, A LOT. Technically, Pippy is Emma’s puppy, but she just happened to take a job a few hours away this summer, so you know who is training Pippy. I’ve trained other puppies and find that yummy treats are a very effective way to train. I’ve been using Nudges Wholesome Dog Treats that I found at Walmart to train her. I appreciate that these dog treats are made in the USA. Nudges Wholesome Dog Treats have been great for training. They are packaged as large strips of jerky, but it tears easily for training purposes. Right now I tear off bits and pieces for her, but as she grows I know she’ll just gobble up the entire treat. Here is what I love about Nudges Wholesome Dog Treats: • Made in USA • Tears easily so I can give Pippy a larger piece and BB a smaller piece • No Fillers • No Artificial Flavors • Pippy & BB love them! • First ingredient is chicken and not a filler or corn product

Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks With Nudges Healthy Dog Treats! And as I’m sure any of you that have dogs know, there is no better motivation to get your dog to do what you want them to than chicken jerky for dogs. But I didn’t want just any treat – I wanted the best dog treats – dog treats that were made in the USA with no fillers or artificial flavors and that were high quality. So, we headed off to Walmart to see what training motivation we could find that would get our lazy dog snapping to attention in no time. When we saw the Nudges, they definitely stood out! Not only was the packaging bright and colorful, but you could also see directly into it, allowing you to see the actual treats. They were huge pieces of jerky that looked delicious for a dog; and since they could be torn to make smaller pieces, they were the perfect training tool! And at less than $4 a package, they were the right price and great for Max performing tricks! The key to our success was a small piece of a Nudges dog treat each time he correctly performed the task we asked him to do. Now, he would have gone through all of the packages we bought if we had given him a full treat each time, but since we were able to easily tear a little off for a small reward, our training was able to stretch through the day! And through praise, love and Nudges, we had him following our every command in no time at all!

Nudges Dog Treats Irresistible for My Dogs Aside from my children, my dogs are the most important thing in my life. And though our Piper is newly adopted, she and Bud are a fixture in this family and are loved deeply. Along with healthy food and water, walks and hugs and kisses, treats are an important part of our dog’s daily life. So are table scraps, but we don’t share that information often. Yes, my Bud has been known to turn his nose up on treats! Often, in fact! So, the other day while at Kroger shopping for some basics, I was excited to see a new treat product called Nudges on the shelves. But what excited me even more was the note on the package saying they were made from real chicken! There are other major perks to NEW Nudges as well. These no filler snacks are made in the USA, and you know I love that! Plus, though they are high in quality, have no artificial flavor and smell amazing, they are the same price or less than the treats I normally buy! I was really surprised by that! Also, I love the “pork chop” shape that makes it easy to hand to my dogs.

4th of July Dog Safety and Dog Treats Made in USA! It’s no secret that we love our dog – he’s family. As part of the family, it’s important that he only gets healthy dog treats. I insist that my family eats healthy, so it’s no different for our pets! Chipper has been our constant companion since we “rescued” him off Craigslist when he was a puppy. At just over 5 lbs he is a toy poodle/Maltese mix and a white ball of fluffy fun most of the time. When I was asked to try Nudges Dog Treats, I was really excited to see that they were a high quality, made in the USA product, with no fillers, and no artificial flavors. Even better, they tear into small bits for a tiny dog like ours. We promptly went to Walmart and bought some. AND I used a $1/1 any Nudges Product coupon too because good products are better when you can save money on them! Can I just say that Chipper loves his Nudges?

We Got a New Dog! Because our family loves to spend time outdoors, along with Kayla’s young age, it’s really important that we lay down the law for Stella (jumping and peeing on rugs = unacceptable) from the get go and reward her for good behavior to positively enforce it. So I’ve been using these Nudges to teach Stella to sit and stay. She’s caught on pretty quickly and the timing couldn’t be better since we’re now in the midst of fireworks season here in San Diego. And yes, Charger is totally reaping the benefits of Stella’s training. One last tip, spoil dog #1 a bit when you bring the new dog home. Charger got a few Nudges just for being a good host to the new puppy. Now if I could get the two of them to stop running circles around our living room at ridiculously high speeds everything would be under control. Sort of.

Nudges – The Best Dog Treats For The Best Dogs Hi friends! Do you have the best dog in the whole world? Yah – you know, the furry little part of your family? Well we have a pretty darn awesome puppy in our household, and her name is Hope. I really introduced you to Hope a few weeks ago, but I had so much fun sharing her cuteness with you that I have a feeling we’ll be talking about her much more here on out. This is one of those times. Today we’re talking about the fact that because Hope is such a great pup, she deserves the best dog treats! Enter Nudges. They love to have her nearby and she loves to be around the whole family too! And you know, what better way is there to reward her great behavior or “Nudges Moments” than with Nudges Dog Treats! So after an afternoon of her minding and playing with the boys, we broke out the Nudges. Have you ever opened a bag of dog treats and thought “wow, that smells amazing!” Sounds strange, right? But really, that’s what I thought! And Hope did too; I could see her sniffer working as soon as I walked into the room with her new fabulous treat!

Pamper Your Four-Legged Friend We try and pamper our dogs just like we do our kids and for our special pets only the best dog treats will do. While Abby & Willow were at the groomer getting their new haircuts I decided that I would surprise them both with some new Nudges treats, which are available at Walmart stores. Nudges, which are made in the USA, are Premium Jerky Cuts made with real chicken and are wholesome dog treats for your pets. They have no artificial flavors or fillers and best of all they smell good and my dogs love them. The Nudges are a BIG hit with my two Shih Tzu’s Abby & Willow! We have not only been using them as a special treat but also for rewarding them for not barking, sitting and any other good behavior that we think deserves a yummy treat.

Nudges – The Best Dog Treats for Daisy Lennox loves to go for a walk and I know she would love to bring Daisy, but she just needs to learn to act a little better! So, what is the best way to motivate a hound dog to train? TREATS! Their noses will get them every time. We were now on the hunt for the best dog treats for her. So, we headed out to the new Kroger in our neighborhood and found some new treats for Daisy-Mae to try! We decided on Nudges Wholesome Dog Treats. So when we got home, we had to try them out. Daisy was going crazy when she saw the bag. She just sniffed it and was jumping around! She could hardly contain herself when Kyle was opening the bag! Of course, we made her to do a little work before she got some treats, like sit, lie down, shake and jump up. Daisy loved these treats and they really are great for training your dog. If you are interested in trying them out, make sure to check out the $1 off Nudges Coupon. My favorite and her least favorite? Puppy sit-ups! Gets her every time.

Nudges Dog Treats Made in the USA One of the ways we keep her calm on the 4th of July is by playing with her outside during all the activities, and lots of times that includes treats! We recently tried out Nudges Dog Treats, which the best part to me is they are made in the USA! On top of that they tear easily so that you can use it based on the size treat your dog needs. They also are free of fillers and artificial flavors, and they smell good! Really‌they do smell good; really no strong scent at all!

Our dog loves to do tricks for treats, and she used to be better at it a while back; but she’s lost her patience these days. She still does pretty well though, and likes to jump in the air to catch the treats mid air too! We enjoyed time with her outside using Nudges Dog Treats to reinforce the training that our dog has learned over the years. One of our favorites is putting the treat just a few inches from her nose and practicing ‘leave it’ and ‘take it’…sometimes she just can’t take the temptation!

My Dog and I are Inseparable… Most of the Time I was invited to try some new healthy dog treats for my fur baby, Daisy. I agreed to get the chicken jerky for dogs after I found out they are made in USA dog treats. So when I grab my car keys and she thinks she is in for a fun road trip, I have to disappoint her by telling her to stay put. I quickly see her eyes get sad. She just wants to tag along! So instead of leaving her broken hearted and alone while I am gone, I fill up her dog toys with treats. That way she makes a little game of it, digging out the tasty treats until I get home again. I found Nudges to be a great treat for when I am gone. They tear easily and slip right into the dog toy. She rolls the toy around and fishes out the small torn up pieces until she’s discovered them all. Of course, she loves the whole pieces of chicken jerky for dogs too. As far as the reward of the Nudges, she loved them! She would do anything for them! She’s always been a chicken jerky fan, but sadly it’s hard to find healthy dog treats that are made in the USA!
