I and Love and You, bet you love your dogs too!

I love my collies dearly, they bring me joy and happiness every day.  So when I choose a dog treat for them, I want the company making those treats to put quality ingredients into every bite.  We love doing product reviews as it helps us discover new foods, treats and toys, and allows us to share them with our readers. knows that pet bloggers are a great way to reach pet owners, and it helps new customers find products they can trust.  That's just one of the many reasons we are so excited to be part of the #ChewyInfluencers campaign.  This month Chewy sent us packages of dog treats from I and Love and You, a company that really cares about our pets.

I and Love and You Jerky treats come in multiple flavors, and our friends at sent us a three pack, so we could try them all!  I loved this idea, because for those with picky eaters, they can try a couple varieties to find which one their finicky friend will love best.  Now, it's no secret that the collies are not choosy, they love most varieties of dog treats.  But I was curious, would they show a preference for one of these flavors of jerky treats?

They loved them all!  I could not discern if they found one variety more tasty than the others, they seemed to find them all to be drool-worthy!  Check out the ingredient list, and key benefits:

Pumpkin Spice Season

During the Fall months people tend to become obsessed with Pumpkin spice flavored treats. It seems like everywhere you look you will find this yummy flavor, in coffees, cookies, ice cream and too many other products to list!  Sadly, our canine companions were missing out on this seasonal treat, but not any longer!  Did you know that Grandma Lucy has created a pumpkin flavored treat just for dogs?  Our awesome friends at Chewy sent us a package of Grandma Organic Pumpkin Dog Treats, and the collies couldn't wait to try them!

Most of you know that I'm a label reader, and very picky about what cookies and dog foods I give my collies.  Their health and well-being is my top priority.  And I was happy with the ingredient list for these treats!

  • Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Dehydrated Cane Juice, Organic Sunflower and/or Organic Canola Oil and/or Organic Palm Oil, Organic Cane Juice Syrup, Organic Pumpkin Powder, Organic Mace, Organic Cinnamon, Soy Lecithin.
And check out the Key Benefits:

  • These treats are not made in a factory but oven-baked in a bakery by people who love their pets
  • Made with 100% USDA Organic, human-quality ingredients for dogs
  • USA originated ingredients and without any preservatives, by-products, artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors, hydrogenated oils or trans fats
  • Grandma Lucy's has taken great pride in making wholesome, natural and delicious pets treats since 1999

When I opened the package the first thing I noticed was the way these cookies smelled.  They smelled so good, I was tempted to try one!  And the next thing I noticed was how adorable the cookies were, they were shaped like little Teddy Bears.  I'll admit I was impressed, they looked and smelled great!  Added to the organic ingredient list, these little treats seemed like a great way to reward and train the collies!  But what did the collies think?

They loved them!  In fact, they couldn't get enough of these little cookies!  Since they are so small, they can have a couple and we don't have to worry about weight gain.  We definitely recommend these treats, and the good news is that you can order them all year long, you don't have to wait for Pumpkin-Spice-Everything Season to buy them for your best friends!  Just head over to and get some for your dogs, they'll love you for it!  Click here! sent us these treats for free, in exchange for our honest opinion.  We were not reimbursed for this review.
