If you were following my blog about a year and half ago you may remember that our family rescued a German Shepherd/Husky mix that we named Jenny. When we adopted her she had no clue what treats were or how to play with toys! It took a while but she finally decided that dog treats weren’t such a bad thing after all!

I’ve been concerned about properly caring for her teeth since I have no idea what kind of care she had (or didn’t have!) before us since she was found on the streets so I was really eager to try out the Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews™ for her which are clinically proven to be as effective as brushing your dog’s teeth twice per week based on reduction of tartar build up and bad breath.

I can tell you that BOY does her breath stink and if you’re a parent of kids like I am you certainly don’t have the extra time to brush your dog’s teeth! I’m lucky just to get my kids in a good oral care routine let alone my pup!

My Jenny girl is fairly picky with her treats and has just recently begun enjoying them – her favorite was rawhides! That is until she tried these Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews™. Now she’s a NUT over them….and oddly enough I have to hide the bag because my cat attacks them too! I won’t lie – they actually smell really good!!

I absolutely LOVE giving them to her – not only because they make her happy but because I know that they are healthy for her teeth too! I will definitely be looking to buy these for her when her box runs out! I want to keep my dog healthier in the long run and prevent unnecessary dental bills because vets sure aren’t cheap!

  10. Sadie is my 7 year old golden retriever. She has pulled all nighters right by my side when I was finishing my teaching degree. Her fur has mopped up the tears of my two kids, and maybe a few of my own. She is tangible joy and an adored member of our family.

  11. Lisa Brown says:

    I would like t try the Essentials Plus+® Optimal Health Biscuits – Small, for little guy.

  12. Jeri Leigh L. says:

    I see they have trail mix, that is new to me! I didn’t know that, I will have to get some for Teddy to try!

  13. I learned that these chews are as effective as brushing your dog’s teeth. Sadie is not a fan of teeth brushing, so these could be very beneficial!

  14. I have a 3 year old pomeranian chihuahua mix that I adopted two years ago. His name is Butters and his best trick is that he can “raise the roof!”

  15. My husband and I will be picking up our new German Shepherd puppy next week and I would love to have these as a treat for him!! He will be our first puppy and we couldn’t be more excited! We went with a shepherd bc my dad was a K9 officer for the highway patrol and had a shepherd and we have always loved the breed! We plan to name him Diesel….that was my husbands name choice 😉

  16. I have a husky named Jake. He’s 10 and is only just starting to slow down a little, though he’s still pretty active. He’s great to our 2 small kids even though he doesn’t get as much attention as he used to. He could definitely use some extra pampering.

  17. We have two dogs. Dug is our big black Lab. He was a rescue dog. We’re pretty sure he was abused, but he’s been with us for almost 5 years now and seems to be way better! Lemonade is our Boston Terrier. She’s smart but stubborn! They are both 6.

  18. One fact I learned when I checked out the MilkBone brand page was that the Brushing Chews are clinically proven to be just as effective as actually brushing your dogs teeth! Good to know for a soon to be puppy owner!!

  19. I have an 8 month old pitbull mix that we adopted from a shelter. She is rambunctious and just loads of fun.

  22. I have

  23. I rescued two members of my family. The youngest, Bailey, is 6mo and a golden retriever/lab mix. The oldest is Buffy. She is 2.5 years old and a German shepperd/ greyhound mix. These girls will do anything for food! They are my fur babies and can’t imagine my life without them!!!

  24. My dogs are Old English Sheepdogs. Chowder is 4 and Mickey is 3.5. We rescued Mickey about a year ago and Chowder we raised as a puppy. Our pups has more human personality than I’ve ever seen in any dog. They play jokes on us, smile, bark in response, and definitely show is when they are mad or want something. I cannot imagine our household without these row goofballs.

  25. My 12 year old Rottweiler Rocco thinks he is a 65 lb lap dog. He curls up with us and forgets he is too big to fit on our 6 year old sons’ lap.

  26. I will donate them to Zeke, a 6-year-old ex-shelter dog who was adopted by my sister. He is my furry nephew. She had a DNA test done on him (cool Groupon, right?!) so she could learn about what breeds make up his “mix”. He looks like a small German shepherd, but it turns out that he has none of that in him! He’s got just about anything you can think of in him, though. He is the sweetest dog and REALLY good with kids.

  27. I checked out the Milk Bone web site. I was surprised to learn that they have a Trail Mix for dogs! We’ll have to get some for Zeke for his next hike!

  28. My pup is a miniature long haired dauschund named Millie. I am a 27 year old single lady, but it’s sooo nice to have her to come home to! She loves fetch and hates cats and the doorbell, but is super protective and I love her for it!

  29. Rachel D. says:

    My dog, Pip, is a little chihuahua mix I adopted from my local shelter almost two years ago. She was only 2lbs when I adopted her! We’ve had some rough times including an allergic reaction to a round of puppy shots, but she is the best dog I have ever had. She’s full of spunk and the perfect cuddle buddy!

  30. Rachel D. says:

    I learned that milkbone makes a crunchy and soft treat (marobones) I would live to get these for my dog to try!

  31. My dog Reese is a Manchester Terrier mix. He loves to run outside and roll in the grass.

  32. My dog is a Boston Terrier who believes she is the queen of the house most of the time…..right now she is mourning the loss of my other Boston who passed away in his sleep last Tuesday 🙁

  33. I learned Milk Bone Chews contain 12 essential vitamins and minerals.

  34. I have 3 pit bulls that I rescued. A white male, that is deaf, named Kane, a tan female named Bila, and our newest Brindle female Lola.

  39. I didn’t know that Milk Bones were produced in the US!

  40. I have an 8 year old lab named Miller who thinks he is 8months old! My son adores him and they are always together.

  41. I learned that in addition to tarter control the treats help with bad breath too! A clean mouth is a must since Miller is always licking everyone 🙂

  42. We have three rescues: Jake, Mallie, and Ziva! We have a FUN life!

  43. Daily use is as good as brushing!!!! (And so much easier!!!)

    I am going to get the Trail Mix-A Tasty Mix of Real Beef, Sweet Potato, and Crunchy Treats for my dog.

  49. My dog is a 6-7 year old basset hound named Lincoln that my husband and I rescued from a local animal shelter. He was underweight and had a massive benign tumor on his side that was just horrible to look at when we adopted him. He had been at the shelter for awhile and we really think the tumor was what was keeping people from adopting him. Just thinking about what could have happened to him makes my heart hurt. He’s now a happy, whiny, and stinky dog that just needed someone to love him.

  50. Ever since we adopted my dog, Lincoln, I’ve bought him Milk-Bone® Healthy Favorites® Granola Biscuits because I like the fact that they are natural and not full of stuff that are bad for the dog. I didn’t know they didn’t have soy in them as well!

  51. Elaine Willis says:

    I have six dogs and they are all strays that found their way to our house. The youngest are TJ and Abby at four years old and the oldest I think is Wiggles at 16+. She was an adult when we got her and we’ve had her for 16 years.

  52. Elaine Willis says:

    I need to try the brushing chews. I checked the Milk-Bone website and couldn’t tell if they are grain free. My Abby has grain mite allergies, so she can’t have regular Milk-Bones.

  53. Jenn @comebackmomma says:

    What a great dog! I love your photos. We need to try these chews. I hate doing regular brushing of her teeth.

  54. Erin Franklin says:

    We have two German Shepherds, Patton and Keva. They were our first babies. 🙂

  55. Erin Franklin says:

    I think the trail mix treats would be good for training.

  56. My dog is a miniature poodle and his name is Cocoa. We’ve had him for 2 years (got him when he was 2 years old). He’s a hoot!

  57. I also like the Essentials Plus+® Optimal Health Biscuits.

  58. Melissa M says:

    We have 2 dogs of out own. A 1.5 year old black lab/border collie and an 8 month old boxer mix. We also foster puppies as well.

  59. Susan Farrelly says:

    Adopted a shelter dog in December…it’s been a long journey, but worth every bit of it!

  60. I just got some of these for my dog, and he LOVES them. We have a boxer/shepherd mix so he’s a big guy and can be a pain to ‘brush’ his teeth. These are awesome!

  61. Our dog Cherry is the best! She is a German Shepard mix that we rescued from an irrigation canal a few years back. She was skin and bones and is now the best family pet we have ever had and a little to healthy!

  62. Barbara Sultan says:

    Our dog Chubby is mixed breed dog that we rescued while living in Mexico City. He loves to chew on shoes and he has the smelliest breath of any dog.

  63. Barbara Sultan says:

    I did not know about Milk-Bone Brushing Chews until now. I know our dog will love theses, sine he loves to chew.

  64. My dog is a Jack Russell Terrier. She is 16 years old and is the love of our lives. My daughter got her when she was in the 9th grade, and now my daughter is 30 years old and has two sons. It’s so nice to see her interact with my two grandsons! My dog would really enjoy these treats!

  65. My dog would also really enjoy the Soft & Chewy Beef & Filet Mignon Recipe treats! Sounds delicious!

  66. Rod Jackson says:

    We have a beautiful hunting dog with 6 pups weaned yesterday.

  67. Rod Jackson says:

    I would also try the Optimal Health Biscuts as nursing has likely weakened her.

  68. Misty Gibson says:

    I have 2 dogs. A female chihuahua named Chloe that is almost a year old and a male welsh corgi mix name Trevor that will turn 9 on the 20th. I have had both of them since they were puppies. Chloe is just over 10 pounds and has the heart of a bigger dog and isnt afraid of anything. She goes through big bully sticks in a day. Where as Trevor is over 50 pounds and has the heart of a very small dog and is terrified of thunderstorms. He insists that i break his treats into tiny bite sized pieces. I love both of them dearly and wouldnt trade them for anything. 🙂

  69. Misty Gibson says:

    Out of all of the milkbone products my dog Trevor really likes their soft and chewy chicken flavored bones. My other dog Chloe prefers the flavor snacks biscuits.

  70. Kim otten says:

    I rescued Max from my local shelter the first day after his surgery was all healed, he was found in a plastic bag in the road. He is the cutest and nicest little tripod PomChi and he loves every child he comes in contact with. He is mommy little baby and enjoys fetch and napping on laps 🙂

  71. We got our dog , Wrigley , from the shelter about a year ago. He is the best dog! He is so snuggly and has brightened my life in so many ways. He is truly a best friend and was meant to be our dog.

  72. Susan Christy says:

    I have two very spoiled dogs – both rescues, Lucy & Foxy. A chihuahua and a terrier mix. They are naughty little dogs that don’t mind when I call them.

    I love the fact that these chews can be as effective as brushing the dogs teeth. I am going to have to purchase these for my dog.

  77. D Schmidt says:

    My dog is a puppy named Blaze and he is quite a handful! I thought having a toddler was stressful but a dog takes the work to a whole new level.

  78. D Schmidt says:

    Visited and learned New Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews™ are clinically proven to be as effective as brushing*. Designed to perform like a toothbrush and packaged in a toothpaste-looking box, they help reinforce the need for daily oral care.

  79. Cheryl W. says:

    My poodle, Annie, is my best friend, my shadow and my fur daughter. I am so grateful that God has allowed her to come into my life. Her favorite thing to do is help momma feed the chickens. Her least favorite thing is getting groomed.

  80. Cheryl W. says:

    Another treat that I would love to give my baby, is the Milk-Bone Trail Mix.
