After recently taking Ref off processed food, I am now constantly on the look out for treats that are not processed, full of preservatives and all of that other bad stuff. Just last week, a new product hit the market that meets my requirements.
Barking Obito is a small business based in Queensland, Australia. They have a goal to make healthy, nutritious treats using as much natural ingredients as possible meaning there are no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
We had the pleasure of receiving some Barking Obito treats to try. And by we, I mean Ref. As much as they smelt good for dog treats, I’m not really into trying any dog food. Keep reading to find out Ref’s verdict.
What’s in the pack?
There are 4 basic flavours of treats coming in big bone shape cookies and bite-sized training beans. You can choose from the Belly Soother, Calm Sensation, Skin Temptation and Veggie Booster. All contain natural and health beneficial ingredients.
The Belly Soother was created to help support a healthy digestive system and includes ingredients such as pumpkin, turmeric, ginger, organic coconut oil, organic brown rice flour, chai seeds, free range eggs and banana.
The Calm Sensation has been formulated to contain ingredients that are known for reducing aggression and improve stress in some dogs. Ingredients include sardines, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, brewers yeast, organic coconut oil, organic brown rice flour, chai seeds, free range eggs and banana.
The Skin Temptation was developed to assist with maintaining a healthy skin and coat and includes ingredients such as salmon, purple carrot, flax seeds, brewers yeast, organic coconut oil, organic brown rice flour, chai seeds, free range eggs and banana.
The Veggie Booster was designed to increase vegetable and fibre intake. Ingredients include kale, peas, green beans, brewers yeast, organic coconut oil, organic brown rice flour, chai seeds, free range eggs and banana.

The Final Verdict
The treats smelt so much nicer than most I’ve come across. They are full of natural ingredients and are not processed, ticking all of the boxes a treat should have for Ref. The most important verdict is the one on taste and Ref’s final verdict of the Barking Obito treat range was absolutely pawsitive. He loved every single bite and wanted more.
