Excellent grain free product, great replacement for discontinued products from other brand

I love these and my dog loves these!
Great ingredients. Given a choice between four brands/flavors of cookie treats, our Tennessee Brindle Hound mix prefers these.
We had used Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits in our household for over a decade. They offered good wheat free products and our dogs loved them. They offered 16 oz. boxes at a reasonable price. They were great. Starting about 18 months ago, Cloud Star started to phase out their Buddy Biscuit line. They shifted to 14 oz boxes and a product that can't be broken into smaller pieces with out crumbling all over the place. We used to use those cookies, broken into smaller pieces, to fill a Kong bone for our dogs. Not only lighter boxes and poorer product, but the prices went up.
Last month I started looking for alternatives. I tried a number of products. Some of which the dog liked, other she didn't. However, none of them provided the proper characteristics allowing them to be broken up and used to fill the treat holes on a Kong bone, or for smaller treats for routine training reinforcements.
This product finally provides a viable alternative for the product I sought to replace. The cookies are shaped like Animal Crackers. They are a little bit thicker and require a bit more force to break into smaller pieces, but they split with out making a crumbly mess and are sturdy enough to cram into a treat dispensing toy. The boxes are a full 16 OZ and the price per pound is excellent. As long as this company doesn't get greedy down the road, I can see these as being our treat of choice for the next decade and beyond.
I only call out the old competitor as I know other former lovers of those old Buddy Biscuits may be looking for a replacement. It took me trial and error with different products before stumbling upon this one. They aren't a perfect replacement, those old Ginger Bread Man shaped treats made it easier to break off little pieces and they were a better thickness, but this product hits all the important check marks for me in replacing those discontinued products from the other brand.
Dog loves them
Cookies don't crumble when splitting them or stuffing pieces into a treat toy like a Kong Bone
Superb grain free ingredients
Made in the USA
Full 16 oz boxes, no games with selling bigger boxes with lower weights
Great price point for this type of product
The Animal Cookie shapes are Cute
A bit thick, require a little extra force to break into smaller peices, (but at least doesn't crumble in the effort).
