June 2020 Super Chewer "Backyard BBQ" Review
Each box arrives with an information card with details about the items included, as well as ideas on how to engage with your pup.
This month's theme is "Backyard BBQ," a quintessential summer activity if there ever was one! Let's see what's inside, shall we?
Super Chewer Peanut Butter and Carob Stick, 1.5 oz - Retail Value $3
These chompers are becoming a somewhat regular box item, and you know what - that's just fine with Arch! He's my peanut-butter lover, and the shape of these is really nice for toys, play, and training all around. I was especially excited to play with this stick this time around because my mom got me the cutest attachment for my phone: a treat-holder to make pics of my pup easier to take! Clearly, she gets me, and understands how important it is that I take the perfect pics of Archie daily. This stick fits in the holder like they were made for each other!
Hard & Chewy Beef Stick
Bless him, Archie isn't a picky beast, but I'd like to think he does appreciate good ingredients when he gets them! He seems to enjoy the tougher texture of this particular chew, and I really love the harder ones because they keep him busy for longer. I like to give him these in the odd afternoon between lunch and dinner, especially if I know I have a conference call or an extended period of time where I just can't give him much attention, since I know it'll keep him busy.
Corn in the USA Toy
I'm a sucker for toys that look like human things, at least human things that a dog is allowed to have, anyway! This adorable corn on the cob piece is hollow in the middle, and was begging to be stuffed with some toys. It was a wee bit too narrow for either of the usual sticks, but I was able to fold the lamb treats in half and tuck them inside quite nicely. As you can tell from the progression of play here, Archie was pretty pleased with the results!
Lamb Recipe Dog Treats, 4.5 oz.
Of all the bagged treats Archie and I get from Super Chewer, these might be our favorite! They have such a nice smoky flavor, and they're really versatile! He likes them enough that they're useful for training, and I like that they have few ingredients, so they're gentle on his stomach. These did great inside of the corn cob toy, and I'm looking forward to stuffing them inside of a nice frozen Kong for him later this week! #bestmomever
Wreck of Ribs Toy
Anyone else just insanely obsessed with their dog's snoot? Just me? Cool, cool, good to know. I LOVE delighting Arch with new things, and I have to say, I worried about this toy at first, even though I thought he'd really like it. It has a faintly smoky scent, and the "Frenched" bones on each end are a nice durable plastic that he just loves to chew. However, at first, he seemed kind of iffy on this toy, merely taking it from me and running off with it, but not bringing it downstairs to my office in a parade of triumphant glory like he normally does. I needn't have worried. Twenty minutes later, he was growling, bowing, and shaking his head with these ribs, letting them bounce all over the basement floor, having an absolute blast with his new meat-inspired plaything!
Beef Bites, 4 oz.
These were a bit of new and old this month, in the best way possible! While we'd never received this recipe of treats before, these bites reminded me very much of the dehydrated liver treats that Archie gets nonstop of at the vet for being the goodest boy of all time. He adores those, and he seemed to like these just as much. My sweet boy has been having some minor ear issues this month, and without some seriously tempting treats, I would not be able to get his canals even a little bit clean at home. I am not above bribery to get things done for my boy and to keep him healthy!
Verdict: Super Chewer delighted Archie and me this month with a well-executed theme and some really awesome toys and treats! We loved playing with both toys this month; I really feel every month like they pick some super-tough pieces for us to try, and it's so nice to have some new and now-familiar treats in the rotation for our routine. I like the flexibility of the corn cob; I'm going to see if I can freeze some broth and peanut butter powder in the middle for a hot backyard treat, and I plan to use the bagged treats in his other toys to keep things interesting for him. Sometimes it's just too hot to play outside in the dog days (heh, heh) of summer, so I like to keep his mind busy with puzzles and training, which requires lots of treats! As always, I can't wait to see what the next box brings for us!
