Pork Chomps Review and Giveaway

This week, I'm proud to present my review about Pork Chomps.

An Alternative To Rawhide

I was first approached to review Pork Chomps and was intrigued by the product. They are made to resemble rawhide but contain no rawhide. Instead, they contain baked pork skins. The pork skins are 99% digestible and leave no slimy pieces behind. It's all natural as well so there's nothing added to make the treat more appealing.

Testing It Out

Living in a house with five dogs gives the ultimate testing environment. I was sent Pork Chomps in all sizes, in twists form, strips and traditional rawhide shapes. This was great for dogs who are small like Harry and Gigi to my largest dog, Fancy (pictured left).
The first sign I knew the dogs were going to like these was when I brought the box in from outside. I had placed it on a chair temporarily and Cookie (pictured above) was jumping up trying to get to the box. The scent of these things made her really excited. Then I gave them all some of the bones. Everyone was chewing away happily and not one of the dogs were distracted. Harry even enjoyed it considering that he has few teeth. He chewed some of it but didn't finish because of his limitations. Of course, Homer wasn't about to let it go to waste.

The Final Conclusion

Everyone really loved them. Not one of the dogs became sick. Prices are comparable to rawhide treats. I highly recommend these to give instead of bones or rawhide. They don't hurt the teeth but still give your dog something to chew. Once, I gave Gigi a bone and it wound up chipping one of her molars. I didn't have anything like that happening here. Cookie gave me her seal of approval when she stole one of the Pork Chomps bags off of the kitchen table and tried to open it in her bed. (I tried to snap a photo of the sneaky girl but she wouldn't stay still).
Since these were such a hit with my pooches, I am returning the favor. Two readers will win a pork chomps package for their dogs to try. Here's how to win:

  4. I am hoping to win this for my friend Shari's "baby" - her beyond loved little boy shihtzu (small dog) Kiyoshi.
    Kiyoshi is funny!
    The first 2 things I thought of that he likes to chew on are he
    BEGS for bites of bananas if he sees them on the counter or sees her eating one, he crazy loves bananas haha
    As for just CHEWING, for some goofy reason he goes nuts over Kleenex or paper towels and if he gets a hold of one he will run away with it and guard it possessively and try to chew it up so when his mommy tries to get it away from him so he doesn't choke, he growls and gets very angry and will fight to keep it.
    SOOOOO.. he NEEDS something MUCH more appropriate he can chew on instead and these would be perfect for him and I know his mom would appreciate it too.
    I'd be tickled pink to win for my friend Shari and her little furbaby Kiyoshi

    Thank you to you and sponsor for this giveaway opportunity.

    PS ALL 3 of my granddoggies that belong to 2 of my adult are fans of Pork Chomps already! : D

  15. Oh they eat about anything! There favorite is anything that they can chew for awhile! We have 3 lab mixes that we adopted...1 is an older lab mix that I adopted from our local rescue about 2 years ago. We then adopted to lab mix puppies that needed a home...which are now about a year old and about 70 pounds! LOL..oh they grow so fast! I love anything that will help them chew...so they leave my furniture and carpet ...oh and woodwork alone. :) So we have 3 large dogs. :) I love that these are rawhide free!

    1. That's great that you have rescued your pooches from a rescue group. Labs are the most beautiful dogs. So far, they've kept my dogs busy.
