Aussie Naturals – Alaskan Salmon Cigar Whole Skin

In attempting to find something that Lilo will actually take time to chew I decided to try a salmon skin cigar.
Aussie Naturals - Alaskan Salmon Cigar Whole Skin

Entertainment Value/Enjoyment(Me: 2/10, Lilo: 9/10):  The smell was atrocious.  The packaging was annoying to get into.  Lilo was in heaven.  Her total time to devour this treat was 15 minutes.  I am pleased that she is having so much fun and watching the chewing action makes me happy that she will have some mental workout from it.

Smell(0/10): Opening the package was horrible.  Minimal smell while Lilo chews it to pieces though.

Per Day Limit:  Talk to the vet.  There’s no information on the bag.

Training Potential(3/10):  One giant chewy pieces leaves little room for conventional training.  However I used this to teach her that crate + closed door = good.

Cost: Roughly $8.00.

Bottom Line:  This seems like a great treat to use when you have something ‘big’ happening in your life and you need the dog to settle down (assuming resource guarding isn’t an issue) away from the commotion.  I am pleased she enjoyed it so much but it went by fairly fast and it’s expensive for that low of a time count.

Note: Caution should always be used when introducing a new food item into a dogs diet.  The recommendations on this page are not issued from a vet and I have no experience or knowledge in animal nutrition.  My analysis is based purely on my relationship with my dog and I’ve trusted the packaging to be accurate as to the impact it will have on my dogs health. If your dog has special needs, please consult a vet before introducing any treats into their diet, regardless of my recommendations.
