If you want a good laugh, try placing any treat in front of my dog Floyd’s nose, (when he knows you have Cod Skins to offer) and he will turn his head to avoid it until he gets his Cod Skins, its so funny to watch! This treat, without fail, always delivers happiness!
I agree with Donn King's review on 3/8/21.
I started buying polka dog fish skins in 2016. I've bought 46 2lb bags over the years. While they are a large portion of our pet supply budget, I think they are worth it because they are a healthy crunchy treat my 2 havapoos love and it takes them a few minutes to eat. I break them down to 3-4", but I prefer the long pieces vs the shorties so I can give them a longer skin if I'm walking out the door and I want them happy and distracted. I sprinkle the crumbs and flakes at the bottom of the bag on their meals.
BUT something changed in the character/quality over the last year that really bums me out. They aren’t as crisp and I can't snap them into short pieces AT ALL. They bend and twist like plastic and do not break apart. It's like trying to break twine. Now it takes a lot of force to cut them into the size I want with strong scissors and a persistent crushing motion.
Whatever the reason for the change, I will keep buying them, but I'm not using them as much because it's a hassle to have to cut/saw/crush them. I had to change my subscription timing because the new texture is reducing the quantity I use substantially.
I was buying from Amazon all these years and when the quality changed I assumed they were at fault for not stocking fresh inventory. I saw many reviews complaining about the texture change. I decided to see if I could buy direct and was delighted until the first order arrived and the skins were still like plastic and hard to snap into smaller pieces.
I hope you are able to go back to the original process and that the product quality isn't just a disappointing casualty of success. I love your products and definitely want to continue supporting you. Take care and thank you for the many other great treats.
While these smell horrible to me and are kept in a plastic bin in the garage, my five dogs think they are the best thing ever! I am also a trainer and work with some very scared, shut down dogs that will not take treats, but they will crunch pieces of these cod skins. It helps them to trust me, and then they start to work. Super high-value treat. I ordered the two-pound bag, and they go a long way breaking them up. Still have a bagful.
Great quality and fast shipping!
The bulk Cod Skins (2 lb package) is an excellent product and my daughter (Moxie, my 11 yr old dog), loves them. She has 1 foot long treat broke in half for lunch every day. I recommend these for any animal that deserves only the best, both in treats and love and affection. But then anyone who doesn't love their animal more than people, shouldn't have pets. My two cents... Also, thank you Polkadog for your first-in-class customer service!! JPM
All 3 of my dogs love Cod Skins. Its great for there teeth and breath also!
