I rarely indulge when it comes to treats for Anuko so when I’m given an opportunity to do so, I usually go all out. The week that he first ever went viral in June 2015 I went to my local pet shop Unique Pets and bought £50 worth of treats and toys (pictured below) and those lasted him a very long time. Recently his treat box has been relatively empty, so I left DogFest with a lighter purse than when I went in!
Luckily most DogFest food related stalls had a try before you buy option which was great for us since Anuko is fussy when it comes to treats. Generally the smellier they are the more he’ll like them, so the more natural dehydrated animal products are a winner compared to baked dog biscuits.
I didn’t just get the conventional treats and also got a couple of accessories and health necessities for Anuko. As he tries the products I’ll come back to this blog post and score them /5 paws up 🐶 depending on how much he enjoyed them. @

Plaque Off 40g: €19.90
Dental Bites 60g: €9.90

Benyfit Natural 125g Venison bites
Benyfit Natural bites 125g: £3

Liver brownies 150g: £3
Chicken, lamb, rice & vegetable wet food: £0.75
Show price: Liver brownies £2 + free packet of wet food
Anuko rates: 5/5 for both. He especially loved the liver brownies.
Huxley Hound Organic Carrot treats (Vegetarian society approved brand)
Website price: £3.95
Show price: £3
Anuko rates: 3.5/5. Anuko didn’t care much for the other treats they offered but does enjoy carrots, and depending on his mood will either love this treat or ignore it for something a little smellier.
Finer By Nature Venison & Liver 125g tubbies and Empty Hooves 3 pack
Liver 125g tubbie: £2.95
Venison 125g tubbie: £2.95
Empty Hooves 3 pack: £2.95

Anuko rates: 5/5 for the tubbies, 2/5 for the hooves. He does seem to enjoy breaking the hooves into lots of little pieces in a few minutes and then not touching it again.
LoveJoys Turkey & Rice and Salmon & Rice 225g baked treats
Moments Turkey & Rice 225g: £3.19
Moments Salmon & Rice 225g: £3.19
Show price: 3 bags for £5
Anuko rates: 4/5. Since they’re dry treats, every now and then he’ll sniff and not show an interest again but these were the only dry biscuit type treats he enjoyed whilst at DogFest so of course I had to buy them.
Woof & Brew Bottom Sniffer beer for dogs
Bottom Sniffer: £2.99 per bottle

Show price: £5 each (buy 1 get 1 free) + free sample
Anuko rates: not yet tested. I had discussed with the lady behind the stall about me wanting to put some weight on Anuko, which is why she recommended puppy food to me since it’s more calorific due to being a higher protein content. Looking forward to getting Anuko on this kibble!

Dried Meat Pieces 0.35kg: £2.50
Show price: £2
Anuko rates: not yet tested

Show price: £4
Anuko rates: overall 4.5/5, the only thing he would rate less is the dried Original Sea Jerky being 4/5 as he doesn’t always take to them when I offer them. He loved the wet food though!
That’s it for DogFest 2017 folks! Did you enjoy this post? If so, leave a comment and whenever I buy large quantities of treats in the future I’ll always do a haul post. I try to buy different brands each time to really see what’s new on the market, so if you have any recommendations or suggestions please leave them below!
Woof & Kisses!
