Gear Review: Merrick Backcounty Treats

A few months ago, I came home from work to find a package on the front porch. I excitedly tore into it and discovered that it wasn’t for me, it was for Sprocket!

Merrick Backcountry Treats

He’d received Wild Prairie Real Chicken Jerky,  Wild Prairie Real Chicken Sausage Cuts, and Great Plains Real Steak Patties. The lucky dog was drooling immediately after I opened the first bag.

Feed me??

While all of the treats were enjoyed by Sprocket I think his favorite were the chicken jerky strips. I can’t say that I blame him, they smelled like meat and the ingredient list is impressive (“mixed tocopherols” are often found in human nutritional supplements; Vitamin E is a tocopherol). They’re grain-free which I appreciate since his food (also Merrick Backcountry) is as well.

Chicken Jerky

Lest I give all the credit to the jerky, the sausage cuts and the steak patties were hits as well! I think I’d say the steak patties were his second favorite but the sausage cuts get him running to the kitchen for a treat all the same.

I don’t give SP treats very often but when I do, I try to choose things that fit in with his grain free diet and these Merrick treats fit the bill! While I putting together this review I found out that there is also a Wild Catch Salmon Jerky variety that I bet Sprocket is dying to try.

Merrick Backcountry treats were provided to 3Up Adventures by Merrick Pet Care. All opinions are my interpretation of Sprocket’s thoughts.
