‘The soft and chewy treat that dogs love to eat’
Note: This is a sponsored post. Read more to learn how you can win a bag of healthy treats for your dog.
A company called Green Bark Gummies recently sent me some of its healthy dog treats for my dog Ace to try. And let’s be honest, my cat Beamer tried them too (Pretty much swallowed one whole).
The thing that’s so special about these treats, according to Green Bark Gummies, is they include a healthy “super food” ingredient called chia.
What the heck is chia?
Yeah, I didn’t know either.
Chia seeds contains omega-3 fatty acids, according to Green Bark. And they have other benefits, too. For example, they:
- support joint function and mobility
- are high in fiber and supports healthy digestion
- are an excellent source of minerals
More details about Green Bark Gummies
I’ve been using the Green Bark Gummies while training and walking my dog lately. I also put them in his Kong toy.
I don’t mind giving Ace lots of treats as long as they’re healthy, and lucky for him he’s never had an issue with gaining weight (Yeah, I’m jealous too).
These treats are soft and chewy (not actually gummy) and they are shaped like little bears. They are so cute! And my dog goes nuts over them. I usually end up breaking them in half when we’re working on training. They’re great for helping Ace focus on me when we pass other dogs.
The Green Bark Gummies are made in the United States and the web site says they contain no:
- corn, soy, wheat or added sugar
- artificial flavors or colors
The treats come in four varieties: Skin & coat, hip & joint, healthy digestion and health & vitality.
“Chia delivers all the good oils that salmon delivers without heavy metals, ocean-borne contaminants or mercury,” according to GreenBarkGummies.com.
According to Green Bark Gummies:
1. The treats are made with white fish or wild-caught Alaska pollock.
2. The treats were developed by vets and nutritionists.
3. The gummies are powered by one of nature’s “super foods” – chia.
4. The treats include a blend of antioxidant-rich greens such as alfalfa, kelp, green tea and chlorophyll.
5. Two sizes are available so dogs of all breeds can enjoy!
Green Bark Gummies uses its own ingredient called NutriCHIA. This is sprouted chia ingrained with three omega-3 fatty acids, ALA, EPA and DHA, according to the web site.
Green Bark Gummies says the omega-3s are in a bioavailable form, meaning they are easily absorbed by the body.

Interesting. In their list of ingredients, Dried Ground Chia Seed is 9th in the list. However, it still sounds like it is a good treat and I will try some with my GSD/Husky... next time I buy treats. I take it that these treats are in the same category as the hot dogs, cheese and steaks??? :-)

Yes, the chia has lots of nutritional benefits, Green Bark Gummies says. These are not as good as steak for my dogs but they are higher on their list compared to other dog treats! I recommend them for training treats. They're not messy (like shoving cheese or real meat in your pockets)!

Oh wow, this is so awesome! I discovered chia seeds for my own benefit earlier this year, and have been adding them to yogurts, salads, and smoothies. I had NO idea they were also available for dogs! I will definitely try some; well, Missy & Buzz will :-) Thanks for sharing!
