An acquaintance was deeply impressed by Mr. N’s hiking prowess saying it’s like he’s hiking three times the distance with his stride.
Even though he’s never tired, he does expend a lot of energy so he gets fed a lot of snacks on the trail. I look for healthy, meat-based, grain-free and portable treats. I tried out Primal Buffalo Liver Chunks Dry Roasted Dog Treats from Chewy.com when we were hiking Angel’s Rest.
Mr. N is a definite fan and they rank in his second tier of treats after cheese and meat that I cook for him (and yes, he is extremely picky!).
I approve of the treats because they are made from US-sourced buffalo with no added salt and sugar or preservatives and they’re a single ingredient treat. My only qualm is that they are not as easily breakable as I would like. They do break up but not into tiny, tiny pieces and some pieces are harder to break than others.
I used them to call him away from chipmunks at the summit. He really wanted to go after them.
And to remind him that he shouldn’t go jumping off cliffs.
And as a reward for climbing through the boulder field.
We also saw a lot of wildflowers.
And a waterfall.
But Mr. N could care less. He says bring on the liver and the chipmunks. What do you take for your dogs to snack on the trail?
