Back when we did the Merrick Chunky Can Recipes taste test, Merrick also sent us a Cowboy Cookout Gourmet Sausage Treat to try out. Our dog, Kobi, is super picky when it comes to treats. He’s often put me in an awkward position when he’s been offered a treat, takes it and then spits it out. Now I warn people that want to give him a treat that about 90% of the time he won’t eat it.
Kobi LOVED the Merrick Cowboy Cookout Gourmet Sausage Treat. It’s a real sausage and is similar (in texture) to a hard Italian sausage. I would cut individual pieces, give them to Kobi for a treat and in between keep the sausage treat in the refrigerator.
Merrick Gourmet Sausage Treats are created from real meats from USDA, New Zealand and Australian growers. They include farm fresh vegetables & whole grains. These all natural sausage treats contain no artificial colors or flavors. Each sausage is individually wrapped to ensure optimum freshness.
We think it’s a perfect size for a dog gift. However you might prefer to get more than one for a large dog. But for our 18 lbs Havanese, this sausage lasted a while.
They come in a variety of flavors: Grammy’s Pot Pie, New Zealand Summer, Venison Holiday Stew, Thanksgiving Day Dinner, French Country Cafe and Cowboy Cookout Sausage Treats for dogs.
