Canibit Venison Sinwes

Canibit Venison Sinews

Composition: 100% Venison Sinews

Analytical Constituents: Protein 87.5%, Fat content 3.5%, Moisture 11.2%, Crude ash 5.6%.

Review: I bought the Canibit Venison Sinews because I thought they would be great for Rocky's teeth. As Rocky is very picky about his chews I was very uncertain whether he would like them.
To my surprise he loved them. There is a tiny bit of venison meat still stuck to the sinew which immediately got Rocky attention. But even after he ate off all the meaty bits, he would still be interested and chews quite often on the actual vension sinew. I am very happy that Rocky likes the Canibit Venison Sinews and will definitely buy them again as I think they are great.

Review: I am very pleased with the Terra Canis Sensitive varieties, especially because they don't contain grains. The game variety smells really good and meaty. You can tell by the smell that this wetfood is of high quality. The ingredients are accordingly great.
Rocky immediately ate the food and really likes it.

Analytical Constituents: Protein (8.3%), Fat content (5.4%), Crude fibre (0.8%), Crude ash (1.3%), Moisture (81.1%).

Review:  The Sensitive Chicken smells very good and not at all like dog food. I also really like that you can see real bits rather than just everything being mushed up (for example the pumpkin).

 Review: The ingredients of the pollack variety is, like all the other sensitive wetfood cans, very good. However, the can content was very watery and in addition there were partially quite big fish bone peaces in the food, which I found very negative.
Rocky didn't like the pollock variety at all. He is anyways very picky when it comes to fish and fish as wet food is always a gamble with him. He only shortly sniffed on the wetfood but didn't touch it at all.

Review: Rocky was immediately enthused and ate all of the food straight away.
I think this variety is great even though it does contain a bit of grains in form of millet. I am however not bothered by this and to be honest I would feed the Terra Canis varieties with grains without hesitation, because the grain content is minimal.
Rocky war direkt begeistert und hat den Napf sofort leer gemacht.

Maelson (Part 2)


We have received a Snuggle Kennel by Maelson.


We have previously reviewed a few Maelson Products and spoke about the first-cass Maelson Customer Service.
Even after 3 years, we are still very pleased with all of the products and they are in permanent use.
Great, high quality and handy products for dogs which are thought through and will last long.

Review: I really like the Maelson Snuggle Kennel. It is easy to assemble and after figuring out how to attach the first part of the zipper, it is rather quick to fully assemble.
I really like all the little extras such as the top handle, the side panel apertures and the magnet opening of the door.
The Snuggle Kennel also looks very modern. I also really like hte colour as it is modest, simple and timeless.
Most of all, I like that the Snuggle Kennel is very sturdy and naturally keeps its form. This is because I don't like when transport carriers are dented or sag.
Also, all the mesh windows are very sturdy. The Snuggle Kennel looks very high quality and this is also apparent. 
Rocky immediately felt comfortable in the Kennel.
I do however have a bit of a concern about the zipper-assembly. I am someone who easily breaks zippers and I therefore fear that the Snuggle Kennel won't last too long with me. I hope that this won't be confirmed. In regards to my concern, Maelson have assured me that the zippers have been pre-tested for stability and only sturdy, hard-wearing zippers were used. So they should last/ work for a long time.
Furthermore, I wish that the plush inner cushion would be thinner as it takes quite a bit of height/ space away within the interior.
I do like however, that the plush inner cushion is removable and washable.
Overall, I think that the Maelson Snuggle Kennel is great. It is of high quality, easy to carry, is well usable in daily life and the security of the pet was considered.
