Bartley's has asked some of our fans to review the products in our shop.  We'll be posting these reviews periodically.  Here is the first in our series!  Remember, every time you shop at Bartley's, you sponsor a rescue dog in need!

Today's review is written by Tyson's mom, Susan!  Thank you Susan!

Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Artichoke

Tyson loves food puzzles and bouncing toys so the Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Artichoke is like a dream come true for him! When we fill it with kibble or tiny treats, he gets right to work on getting the food out – and unlike his other food puzzles, the Artichoke shape encourages him to roll it around the house, which is a different “skill” for him and adorable to watch. He also likes to bounce it on the floor and get the kibble to come flying out! And when the food is all gone, Tyson continues to play with the Artichoke like a bouncy ball.

Tyson is usually pretty tough on his toys, but the Artichoke is holding up perfectly – the soft, squishy material seems to flex well and it’s great that it cleans up so easily. The bright, green color is fun too as it is not a color you see that often in dog toys.

As the weather warms up, we look forward to trying it for fetch and bringing it to our local pond as a water/floating toy.

Zuke's Mini Naturals

Tyson says, “What do you want me to do next? I’ll do anything you ask for one of those yummy treats!”

Since receiving the salmon-flavored Zuke’s Mini Naturals, Tyson has been more-than-eager to work on some new tricks. Previously we tried to teach him “Shake”, but he seemed to have trouble with that one. But with these new treats, he learned that trick in no time and has started to work on “Sit Pretty” too!

These treats are small and low-calorie, so they are great for training exercises. We can train for a good amount of time without filling Tyson up or losing his interest. We also appreciate the quality ingredients and the fact that they are made in the USA.

Without a doubt, these treats are a big hit at our house!
