Sojos Big Dog Treats - Product Review

When it comes to treats, Chewy's philosophy is: the bigger, the better! So when we came across the Big Dog treats by Sojos, we wanted to try them. Chewy was excited about big cookies, while I liked that they have simple, natural ingredients.

Sojos Big Dog treats

Sojos Big Dog Treats are:

  • wheat and corn free
  • contain no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors
  • made with natural, human-quality ingredients
  • available in 2 flavors: Biscuits & Gravy and Beef Stew

The treats come in a cute little box, like something you'd find at a boutique bakery.

I'll take this to go, thanks!

The treats themselves are in a sealed plastic pouch, which keeps them nice and fresh until you open them. (Have you ever bought dog treats packaged only in cardboard, and found them infested with bugs? I have! Bugs would not survive the baking process, so I presume they found their way into the treats during shipping/storage. But thankfully that wouldn't be a problem with these treats!)


The plastic pouch is not resealable, so I ended up pouring the treats into a cookie jar for convenience. Nevertheless, I appreciate that the packaging is relatively environmentally friendly- the box can be recycled and the plastic is thin and minimal.

Beef stew flavor and Biscuits & gravy flavor

While they are called Big Dog treats, they are not actually that big. They are larger than bite-sized, but I would say they are regularly-sized dog biscuits -- which means Chewy can have more than one at a time!


I like that the ingredient lists are very simple:
Biscuits & Gravy flavor: rye flour, oat bran, oat flour, buttermilk powder, chicken, honey, canola oil, eggs
Beef Stew flavor: rye flour, oat bran, potato, carrots, celery, beef, parsley, canola oil, eggs

You can even see the bits of veggie/parsley in the Beef Stew treats! It's nice when dog food actually looks like real food.

I tried to see which flavor Chewy preferred by putting out one of each and letting him choose, but he just chose the one on his left every time (and then proceeded to eat the other one afterwards, of course!). So, my rather un-scientific conclusion is that Chewy thinks they are equally delicious.

Always eating the left one first

We give Sojos Big Dog Treats four paws up!
