Backcountry Dogs, Deserve Merrick Backcountry Food and Treats
Living full time in our RV, we are inherently very outdoorsy. We were before moving into the RV, but now we are more than ever. We definitely prefer the back road way of life, to being in town any day.
Torrey and Roxy absolutely love this life. They get to walk or hike in the backcountry almost everyday. All those new places, all those new smells. Keeping them fit and healthy is a huge priority for me. Not only is it sometimes hard to find a vet, but of course I want to avoid the vet if we can. Feeding them healthy food and treats is a great start for healthy dogs.
Torrey has been eating Merrick dog food for quite some time. I’m pretty picky about what my dogs eat and I feel good about the quality, and the ingredients in Merrick.
Merrick’s Backcountry is a wonderful combination of high quality, high protein kibble and freeze dried raw pieces.
I love that it’s grain free, but Torrey just cares that it’s tasty. Merrick also has just the freeze dried raw pieces. These can be added to kibble, or moistened and served as a wet food. This is a great option for raw feeders, or people like us with limited space for storing things.
When we are out hiking, we take treats for ourselves to keep us going. So of course we can’t expect the dogs to keep going without a little something too. Merrick’s Backcountry treats are great because they contain meat, dried milk cultures, and a little something to preserve them. No weird fillers, no grain, just healthy goodness to give them energy to keep hiking.
Torrey wishes she had thumbs, then she could just open the bag and get a treat for herself.
Of course Roxy would be in on that action too.
Oh ya, a tasty bit of goodness out on the trail.
One thing that’s super important when hiking in the back country, is a good set of commands that the dogs will follow if I let them off leash. Torrey has a very solid “Stop”, and both dogs will sit and stay if I tell them too. High value treats play a very important role in the training.
Nothing better than taking a break with your favorite chicken jerky treats. I like that every single ingredient that Merrick uses, is sourced in the USA. We all know how important that is.
Do you have a back country dog? Of course all dogs are the best dog ever, and deserve the best healthy treats.
