CANIDAE® Natural Gourmet Dog Treats | Review and Giveaway

I like giving my dog treats, and she of course enjoys eating them. What do I look for in dog treats? I like dog treats that have healthy ingredients, are made in the USA, and of course the dog has to think they taste good too.

I was recently asked to try some natural gourmet dog treats made by CANIDAE® Natural Pet Food Company. CANIDAE makes all of their treats to the standards listed above, so I said yes. I decided that maybe it was time to branch out and contact a new treat taste tester for this review. Shiner is an excellent treat taste tester, but what about other dogs? Would they like these treats?


I contacted my grandparents' Shetland Sheepdog, Bear, to see what his availability as a treat taste tester was and his schedule was completely open. What dog would turn down an opportunity like this?

CANIDAE® Life Stages Bakery Snacks with Turkey, Quinoa, & Butternut Squash

Sound tasty, don't they? Not to mention healthy. Bear was excited to get to work and start tasting these CANIDAE Life Stages Bakery Snacks for dogs. Here's some information about these dog treats:
  • Wholesome ingredients like turky, brown rice, quinoa, and butternut squash. 
  • Crunchy texture which helps clean teeth. 
  • Easy to snap in half making them ideal for dogs of all sizes and perfect for training. 
  • Resealable pouch to keep the treats fresh and crunchy. 
  • Made in the USA.
Now all of that sounds great to us humans, doesn't it? But what about the ones that really matter - the dogs? What do they think about these CANIDAE Life Stages Bakery Snacks? 


During Bear's treat taste testing session, he was very interested in the treats and kept sniffing the bag. Then we gave him one and he loved them! He doesn't inhale his treats as quickly as Shiner, so he was able to savor the delicious flavors for a little bit longer. They are definitely a hit with him! 

CANIDAE® Grain Free Pure Heaven Biscuits with Salmon and Sweet Potato

You didn't think I'd do a dog treat review without my main assistant did you? I let Shiner try out the CANIDAE Grain Free Pure Heaven Biscuits with Salmon and Sweet Potato. She loves her salmon and sweet potato after all! And she definitely loved these treats.


Shiner was ready to get to work and she loved these tasty treats. These treats also have the same bonuses as the ones listed for the CANIDAE Life Stages Bakery Snacks, except the ingredients are different. The Grain Free Pure Heaven Biscuits are 100% grain free. Here are some of the healthy ingredients included in these treats:

  • Quinoa - a seed that is a great source of protein. 
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil - contains a healthy combination of monounsaturated fats and polyphenols. 
  • Cinnamon - has many health benefits and is referred to as a "super-spice".

  25. I'm notorious for breaking treats into tiny pieces because Huffle's just not as active as he could be, so we love the look of the Bakery Snacks. And Huffle's happy that I might give him an ENTIRE half of a treat instead of only a quarter ;)

    1. They really are so easy to break in half. I've tried with lots of treats, and can honestly say these are probably the easiest ones I've ever halved!
