*This is a huge pro in my eyes because many dog treats have strong, potent odors. It was so nice to open these up and not experience an unappealing scent to humans or feel like I needed to wash my hands to get the stench off.
**The packaging has a pre-made tear for you to use to open the package. This worked great on one of the packages, but for the other, the tear broke off early and made it difficult to open. (This is very nit-picky and not a big con in our eyes.)

My dog Sally gave these granola bars for dogs two paws up. She’s not too picky when it comes to treats but she has said “no” to some items in the past. However, that wasn’t the case here.
These would be great treats to have on hand if you need to throw something in a bag and it might get tossed around a little. The package is durable and can withstand keys in a purse, hot weather on a hike and other elements.
Michelle and Alex (the Canine Journal founders) also gave their dogs, Lily and Bella, Granola Barks and they approved as well. Watch our video below to see all three dogs “woof” down the snacks and learn more about the product.
What We Love About Granola Barks
Granola Barks’ whole mission is to provide healthy treats for dogs as well as to help shelter dogs find forever homes. Each label features a shelter dog you can visit, foster or adopt. We love it when companies give back, and this company is definitely doing that.
Mike Quaranta, the founder of Granola Barks, decided to create healthier treats by first making his dogs’ food. He noticed a difference in his dogs’ health and energy levels immediately. Learn more about Mike and the creation of Granola Barks in our interview with him. If you’re interested in making homemade dog food, try these recipes.
