CANIDAE Natural Pet Food Company asked me to review their TidNips dog treats. SWEET!

The lovely Violet (a new addition to the family) will be assisting me with this review.

Don't be nervous Violet, just smile pretty and leave the taste testing to the professional (me).

I have some issues with my teeth (it's a yorkie thing) and hard treats are often too much for me. TidNips are tasty, soft and easy to chew. They are made with real chicken and rice and supplemented with vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acids - fun to eat and healthy, too. The resealable bag also makes storage easy and convenient. Overall, I'm sure ALL dogs would love these yummy treats, but especially older dogs (like me) and/or dogs with sensitive teeth and tummies.

Yeah, yeah, that's the spot.

Was it something I said?

I tried the chicken and rice, but definitely look forward to trying the other flavors - lamb and rice, turkey, lamb, and salmon! Not only does CANIDAE make healthy, all natural pet food and treats, they also have a great blog with lots of important information for dog and cat people. Check them out!

  5. Well your Canidae treats sound like they were the perfect treat for a Yorkie like you Pip! I think maybe Violet was just a little sad she didn't get any.

  14. hey Pip,

    Wow, you own personal assistant! You are moving up the ladder! BOL!

    Great review! The treats look yummy, and nice to know they are healthy as well.

    I think Violet is a keeper.


  15. Okay, now that Tidnips sound like something I would like to try. Now, I'll have to send Mommy out to look for it...


  16. Great review Pip! You look adorable as usual, and your assistant is just lovely. It looks like you tired her out though, and she just had to take a nap right there! BOL. Or maybe she was just playin' dead to get some treats?

  17. Howdy Pip your little friend is so cute but Mum keeps going on and on and on (and on) about how cute you are. Blimey. The dog treats sounds yummers. Hope you get to try some more little mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  18. These look yummy! Mom loves her camera it's amazing quality and easy to figure out!

  19. Get up Violet!! Pip, do you know CPR? She was doing great...right up to the end, hope she's going to be okay (stage fright, maybe?)


  20. I hope that Violet is OK....

    MAma says she will have to try those treats for Bilbo...he also has ...(lack of) toofie issues.

    Thanks for the great review Pip!

    Dory, Jakey and Bilbo

  21. I bet my chi's would love those treats! Chico has always had bad teeth (well, since I've had him anyways!) so I always try to get him soft treats.

    Thanks for entering my giveaway, Mr. Pip!

  22. Hey Pip - you are so lucky ....taste testing !! As for Violet, I've heard that sometimes models faint like that because they don't eat anything.....better help! Ask your peep to make her a sandwich. ;-)

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie

  23. Great review, Pip. We all think Mom should get some of those for Phantom, and the rest of us will help him show her how yummy they are.

    Violet is very pretty. She looks a lot like the American Girl dolls the little bipeds here got from Santa - along with a bed, changing table, stroller - maybe we need to have Violet come join these gals for a fun party.

  24. Gee Pip I thinks that you and Violet did a pawsome job of reviewin!

    woos, Tessa

  31. Pip, you did a great job on this review-and even tired out your assistant! The treats must be delicious because Canidae is a great company!

  32. We'd all like to be taste testers when we grow up. Good job, and we like your new friend.
    Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

  33. Yum, we wonder if they make a cat version too. :-)

  34. Ha! Your Violet kills me Pip. Too funny :D Great job on the taste testing pal! It's always a good thing when the treats you're testing actually taste good eh? ;)

    Hope your first Christmas in your new home was fabulous! :D

    Waggin at ya,

  35. We are ROFL at the pictures of Violet. No offense, Violet! OMG! :D

  36. Wow, your sissy has already started her American Girl doll collection! Mama likes to make clothes for the grand-peeps [of the female persuasion] for those dolls.

    Great product review. Glad they're 'paying' you in something useful like actual treats.

    We're still catching up on posts from before Christmas, but we hope that photo of you and Cousin W resting means you finally got your sofa.

  37. My brother Bokeh actually won some of these in his frisbee competition in October. They are nice but they remind us a lot of the Tillman Treats by Natural Balance.
