Delicious Barbecue Inspired Dog Treats from Nudges

What's a better way to have fun in the sun than with a barbecue? Our dog, Shiner, argues that nothing is better. This Summer, we've spent a lot of time at the lake and each time we visit I do barbecue some hamburgers. Unfortunately, it may not always be good to share our human food with our dogs. She loves her meat and we've found the perfect meaty dog treat alternative for her.

Nudges sent us a bag of their Nudges Grillers and Nudges Sizzlers to try out. Shiner has tried the Nudges Chicken Jerky Cuts before, and couldn't wait to get her paws on these new treats. As soon as I opened the bags, I could smell delicious meat and so could the dog.

These barbecue inspired dog treats look, smell, and taste like they came straight off the grill, but without the harmful effect that dogs can endure after consuming human food. They are a wonderful Summer treat!

Both the Nudges Grillers and Nudges Sizzlers are 100% made in the USA. Here's some more information about these dog treats:

  • Real, USA farm-raised beef or chicken as the primary ingredient
  • No fillers
  • No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives
First, Shiner wanted to taste the Nudges Sizzlers made with real beef and cheese. These dog treats look like small hamburger patties. They are soft and can be broken into smaller pieces if you have a smaller dog or want to use them for training. Shiner thinks they are the perfect size for her. 

Next, Shiner sampled the Nudges Grillers made with real steak. These barbecue inspired dog treats resemble a miniature steak that's hot off the grill. Shiner says they smell absolutely divine and she goes crazy every time I open the bag for her. 

It's hard to choose a favorite between the two and we will be taking some of these with us the next time we barbecue at the lake so Shiner can join in on the barbecue fun. 

If you'd like to pick up some Nudges Sizzlers or Nudges Grillers for your dog, you can find a store that carries them with the Nudges Store Locator here. I used the store locator and it pulled up several different Walmart stores for my area.

  9. Mine would probably like the Grillers being southerners!

  10. Dexter loves all soft treats so I bet he'd love these!

  11. My dog loves treats and these look like they are full of flavor.

  17. Ace got to try these and he of course thinks they're amazing! I love the pictures of Shiner in this post. So cute! :) And I love the name "Nudges" for treats.

  18. My dogs like most treats, but always looking for new variety to use in training.

  19. Given that they are both edible I doubt that Mike would have a preference (he eats everything).
