Loving Pets - Barkster & Dolce Diner Review

Love you pets? I sure do love mine and I love to share great pet products.  Sometimes it's hard to finding pet products right for my dogs, simply because whats good for one dog or breed isn't always right for the next. This doesn't mean the product isn't good, it just means sometimes it better suited for a different breed or it maybe a food that my dog in particular doesn't have a taste for.

Loving Pets was generous enough to let my four legged babies (Bella & Boss) Try their Dolce Diners and Barkster Treats.

I'll start with the Dolce Diners. Dolce Diners are double feeders featuring removable, bacteria resistant stainless steel bowls set set inside a plastic frame in the shape of a bone. Dolce Diners are available in colors to match almost any decor and have removable skid-free rubber feet. Dolce Diners are dishwasher safe but don't forget to remove the feet.

I thought these dishes were cute, and I loved the fact that they were bacteria resistant. The dishes themselves were a little small for my guys and we probably would have been better off with the larger size. The pint size would be perfect for a smaller breed - One of my dogs is a Boxer, the other a Pit bull. Either way I placed these dishes in secondary areas like outside and in the garage for a drink of water or a quick bite. I figured the rubber feet would be no match, but these dishes really do stay in place rather well.

Next we had Barksters Dog Treats by Loving Pets- 100% all-natural, U.S.-made BARKSTERS Krisps are the perfect holistic and affordable dog treat for health-conscious pet owners. Combining quality, 100% all-natural ingredients, and a satisfying crunch, these air-puffed treats are low in fat and boast only 11 calories per treat!

Boss ate them right up! He loved these, and was willing to do just about anything to get one. I have to admit I call him my beast or fatty fats because well...I have yet to come across anything he will not eat. Bella however is VERY picky she probably weighs half what her breed should, not due to any medial issue but because she is an incredibly picky eater. Me and the Vet have tried it all and even as far as treats goes it hard to get her to even try it. To my surprise she absolutely loved Barkster!

They are light an airy I could see them making the perfect treat for large or small dogs. They are also great for health conscience owners as they are wheat-free, gluten-free, and contain no additives or preservatives.

Would I purchase these products again? Yes. I did like the design and quality of the Dolce Diner but I would need a larger size. The Barksters I liked a lot, since they were healthy, definitely a 'different' treat and both dogs enjoyed them equally. All though of the two variety's we were sent - Sweet Potato and brown rice they seemed to favor the Sweet Potato.
