Max and Ruffy's

We three dogs had an opportunity to taste test Max & Ruffy's Natural Organic Treats for Dogs. You know how we like to eat, so you can imagine how we were looking forward to this. And then Jan had to go and spoil it for us.

Yep, she used the dreaded "h" word: "Hey, guys, have you read the labels? These look like healthy treats." It took a lot of the fun out of eating them, but we persevered so we can give you our honest opinion on the product.

They sent us six 1 oz. samples.Clockwise from upper left: W.P. Pizza with Parsley; grain free The Kelp Highway; wheat free Mother Quinoa's Pumpkin Patch; grain free Five-Star Blueberry; grain free Powerhouse(sweet potato & alfalfa flavor); and Molasses Explosion 1919 with sunflower seeds;

Okay, Jan, we're ready to taste test.

Buddy tries the Molasses Explosion 1919: Stop fooling around, Jan. You give it to me, then take it away, then offer it to me, then grab it back. Yes, I know you only have two hands. One to feed us treats and one to snap the pictures. If you can't hold the camera steady and push the button with the wrong finger, forget the photos and just feed us the treats, please.

Sam tries the W.P. Pizza: Jan, if you yank that out of my mouth one more time, I'm going to grab the bag and run. Learn to multitask!

Merci also taste tests the W.P. Pizza. Or she will when Jan lets go. When Jan finally managed to push the shutter button, Merci grabbed the treat and ran.

Jan was happy to see the treats were made from organic human-grade and healthy ingredients. No strange preservatives are used. Plus the packaging is eco-friendly. We don't know about eco-friendly; we just liked the taste. But if Jan had let him, Sam would probably have eaten the packaging too.

You can check out the products at MaxandRuffy's.com. And you can find them on Twitter as @maxandruffys.

Max & Ruffy's provided the samples for us to try but any opinions expressed are entirely our own. 


  1. It's a tough old life but someone's got to test these things ... for the sake of the wellbeing of all dogkind!

    Yeah, learn to multitask lolol

  2. Fun taste test! Yeah with all the treat tugowar I'm surprised Jan has any digits left! BOL! Y'all are real sports :D

    Waggin at ya,

  8. Mom loves to give us anything organic and natural. We like most any treat, just bring them on. We think Jan did a pretty good job multitasking - not easy to take photos and not lose your fingers.
