Lincoln Bark review. powering your pup with chia plus giveaway in Canada - Tail-Waggers

If you are new to this blog, let me tell you I am a doggie mama that is all about giving my boxers the best healthy and natural products. I am also a go-go mama about including super foods in Mylo & Chico’s  daily meals, like coconut oil and chia. Then, I came across Lincoln Bark, a dog treat with chia. This immediately got my attention, first because I grew up eating chia in many comfort meals mom used to cook, but also because It is something I include in my dogs meals as well.   I got in touch with them on Twitter and I was happy to receive such great information about their many products and well, the boys loved their products.

 

{WHAT IS CHIA}

Chia is an ancient seed and it is considered  a superfood. Chia seed has more than three times the amount of omega-3 fatty acids as salmon. Chia, or Salvia Hispanica, is known today as the forgotten crop. Domesticated in 2.600 BC, chia is a flowering plant native to southern Mexico and Central America. It was cultivated by the Mayans and Aztecs and one of the main foods of their diet and was even used as trade currency. Aztec warriors and runners are said to have sustained themselves on just a tablespoon of chia seeds a day, providing them with abundant energy and endurance.

The chia plant’s ability to increase stamina and energy over long periods, chia seeds were considered quite magical. Due to its superior nutritional value, chia became a holy seed among these ancient civilizations, used in religious ceremonies and offered to their gods.

There are two varieties, white chia and black chia. Each seed is potent enough to prevent infections, with 19-23% protein, which is gluten free, 34% oil and 25% fiber. Chia seeds offer an excellent source of B vitamins and they are loaded with important Omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and antioxidants.

{WHAT WE LIKED}

  • It is the first dog treat product we know of with  a supper food as one the main ingredients
  • We recognize each ingredient. Yay!
  • The product smelled and looked fresh
  • Their dog treat line offers a mix of  dry and raw treats.
  • It is wheat, corn and soy free. This is a plus, for doggies with allergies.
  • The packaging, logo and dog treats names. Adorable!

I was so happy my boys were able to try out Lincoln Bark products. They liked them all, but I think the  favourite was the Nibble line.  I am certainly thrilled about being able to provide the power of chia seeds to my dogs through treats. It is just convenience and if for whatever reason I can’t add it to their meals, I still know they will get their intake via treats.

    My dog’s name is Sookie and she loves treats, and healthy ones that help with her coat would be the best treats.
