Chewy Review Time


Last week we got 

not one!


butt two boxes from our friends at Chewy


The big box had a bag of food for us 
and 
a new crate pad for Me!

The other box came from the nice
Ms. Sydney with our fun stuff to review!
She not only sent us the new furminator dual brush 
to try out but also some yummy treats


We chose Liver Recipe Low Fat Dog Treats 
made by Fromm


These treats are perfect bite size for a pug
and Mom likes that they are lightly crunchy so they can 
go in our treat container in the kitchen and she doesn't have to worry about them drying out
and they are great in a pocket  - no staining. 


Made in the USA
they have only four ingredients,
Wheat flour, fresh chicken liver, salt, garlic powder.
and one calorie per treat 
We think they are pawsitively yummy!

Now some of you know that pugs
SHED A LOT!!

Mom was anxious to try the new furminator brush to see how it would work on our furs
The brush has two sides, bristles and "pins" 
Mom liked the easy grip handle, but the cover was useless, it would not stay snapped together. 


I found the bristle side of the brush kinda relaxing and it made my furs look shiny! 

Then Mom tried the "pin" side on Bailey, 
who is shedding horribly right now
Unfortunately the brush did not do much to get out the shedding hair. We have short coats and it did not grab the hairs like the regular furminator does.

Mom wasn't done testing though.
When our cousin Willow came over for our weekly playdate, Mom tried the brush on her.
She is a mini-schnauzer 
The pin side worked very nicely getting through her longer furs on her sides, making her look very pretty
(sorry no pictures)

So after our in depth analysis, 
While this is a very nice brush, 
we think it is better suited to pups with longer furs than pugs. Like our friends Frankie & Ernie


Thank you Chewy and Ms Sydney
 for letting us try out these products

We received that brush, too, and completely agree with your review. The soft side of the brush makes my fur very soft, but the cover was useless.

Hmmm, interesting about that new Furminator brush. I just got a new de-shedding tool to try and it seems to be working well. Now those treats...they look delicious! I love Fromm's...and from the photo, it looks like you all do too.
Happy Monday

Pawesome review, I was so curious what pups with short fur would say about the brush. The treats are pawesome, they look like little clouds and I bet the taste is heavenly, right?

WE agree with you 187% about the Furminator thingy... it is PAWFECT fur OUR furs type and length... butt not so grrrreat fur Other types... BUTT that is why we LOVE Chewy.com... Isn't it??? We can Try thingys and give our furends Fair and Honest evaluations... so they don't Waste their Green Papers on thingys that are not Right fur THEM... Our DAD fixed the Cover by putting Super Duper Glue on the edges... it stays together now.
This is a Grand Review... Well thought out and honest.

We don't get chewy anymore because they left it on the porch and our box was stolen!!!! We miss those boxes. Our mom says pugs shed a lot but she barely notices because our Angel brother Norbert shed so much more He was a lab mix

I think bundling the brush and treats together was a smart idea. I hate being brushed and mom has to give me treats throughout the torturing process.

Aroo to you,
Sully

With such cute faces, how could anyone deny giving them a treat, when they look at you like that.

We like those little size treats also....we got some good ones this month...let us know how you like that new food. We have the other kind of furminator and it works good on our short fur, and Maggie sheds ALOT!

Maybe you can send the brush back and exchange it for more of those yummy treats....just an idea.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Yes, you are right about that brush. The bristle side is not too useful for us other than a gentle massage, but the pin side does wonders on our thick coats. Mom just wishes it were a little bigger for us bigger dogs. We want to try to liver treats too - yummers!

We thought at first those treats were out of one of your stuffies. That look on Mabel's face is so dang cute!

Massages do feel good though, but too bad the brush did not pick up much hair.. Those little treats looks wonderfully delicious!
