I have featured Freshpet in the past and it is my pleasure to do so again! Mom and I think highly of this company, everything that they do is first-rate!

Gather round me pups and let me tell you about the:


I’ll tell ya when Mom opened the bag to give one of those sumptuous smoky smelling strips to me,   I nearly lost my mind! That’s why there isn’t a photo of me eating them…I was TOO FAST FOR MOM! At one point, Mom  held the bag out to me and I grabbed a bacon strip right out of the bag! They look  AND TASTE like REAL BACON STRIPS!

Mom apologizes about the blurry shot, I wouldn’t stop moving because I wanted those Turkey Bacon Treats!!!

Who DOESN’T love bacon? Mom was watching TV this morning and that “Pioneer” cookbook lady was on and she was making meatloaf ready for this?… WRAPPED IN BACON!

I know that regular bacon is made of pork but many people like my Mom, use turkey bacon because it is a leaner alternative. Don’t get your fur ruffled, it is still crunchy the way we like it but has fewer calories and fat!

The best part? Now there  is Dognation Turkey Bacon made for dogs!

Freshpet Dognation Turkey Bacon for dogs are:

  • made using only all natural, simple ingredients the way ALL of the Freshpet products are made.
  • Fresh, wood-smoked turkey bacon treats made of simple, all natural ingredients. No fillers, by-products or preservatives.

Mom wanted to video me eating my Dognation Turkey Bacon treats but I would have NONE of it! I just wanted those treats! Mom remembered a FANTASTIC video that she saw over at the great blog Something Wagging This Way Comes and asked Pamela if she would share her fabulous video! Guess what! She said yes!! Thanks soooooo much Pamela!!

Dognation Turkey Bacon is $6.99 for 3 oz. which is a teeny bit pricey, but Mom loved Pamela’s idea of using them as training treats to make them go further and may have to do that with me!

You can purchase these treats in the U.S. by visiting the Freshpet store locator at

NOTE: They will not be available in Canada until early 2013.

No worries!!! I am having a give-away!! One lucky dog who lives in either the U.S. OR CANADA can enter to win your own Freshpet Dognation Turkey Bacon Dog Treats!

  1. those treats look deeeeeeeeelicous!!!!!!!!

    • They are!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  2. My three pups LOVE bacon. They’d be thrilled with their own bag of Turkey Bacon Dog Treats. . . .but I know I’d have to be really careful my fingers!

  3. I love bacon, Mom makes me some treats with little bits chopped up in it, Yummy xx00xx

  4. Bacon is pretty much the best food ever! We were at a chowder fest recently and one vendor had bacon wrapped pretzels! Last holiday season, I made some chocolate bark drizzled with caramel and topped it with crumbled bacon. Sounds weird, but the saltiness of the bacon, really went with all the sweetness of the chocolate.

    This seems like a good treat to have handy for those times when I’m trying to calm Oreo and make him feel better. I mean really, doesn’t bacon make everyone feel better 🙂

    • OMD Sara, you have my Mom DYING over here!! “bacon wrapped pretzels!!???” OMD!! And…chocolate bark drizzled with caramel and topped with crumbled bacon? Please sell it…Mom said she will be your FIRST customer!! Good luck! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  5. I love bacon!! Can I pretend I live in the US? Bol

    • BOL Misaki! nice try! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  6. Aw – sounds like something Litchi would go wild over but I’m just a tiny little bit too far away for that. Enjoy!

    • Sooo sorry 😦 Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  7. Great job on your review, Dakota. The picture was worth a thousand words to show how much you like the bacon treats.

    BTW, Honey is happy to shoot another video if you need some more footage of her eating them.

    And don’t tell Honey, but I’m asking you not enter us in the giveaway since we’ve already gotten to try these treats. We want to make sure some other lucky dog gets to win.

    • Pamela Hi!!! Thank you! Mom just emailed you the link not knowing that you had already seen the post! Ohhh you are too kind! Did you see how BLURRY that photo is? BOL! Thank you soooooooo much for allowing Mom and I to use your video!! We obviously LOVED IT! Mom said she also LOVES your kitchen! We understand about you not entering…totally understandable!!! Thanks so much again! Barks and licks and love, Dakota and “Mom”

  8. That was a very yummy post Dakota ;o) …and I’m still living on the wrong place…or space ;o) hope my green card is in the mail soon :o)))

    • Thanks Easy! I wish that your green card would be coming as well!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  9. Well, I am not a dog, but I do love bacon! However, I think I will feed these to Shiner 😛 she loves to eat everything, expecially treats and especially bacon!

  10. Oh, Morgan is STILL stalking our refrigerator for that stuff! We absolutely loved it and I know that whoever wins it will be one happy pup — unless their human tries to steal it from them to eat it!


    • Bunny I LOVE it! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  11. Okay, now I’ve got to go and have some bacon. Sadly it won’t be the low fat kind but what the heck, all I’ve been doing while re-cooperating is eating so I may as well add bacon to the list! LOL! How much do we love bacon? Well, it’s like that big comfy sweater that you want to wrap yourself in…..except I guess you’d eat it. Thanks for a delicious post Dakota and for making me hungry! 🙂

    Oh, I guess the turkey bacon would be great for Freddie and Gloria too! hehehe

    • @Bassetmomma you made mom laugh so hard! She is hoping you feel better!!! Mom liked how you wrote “it’s like that big comfy sweater that you want to wrap yourself in”….perfect! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  12. Hmmm, well, you said you L*** me, right.? So it doesn’t matter where I live, does it? 3>3>3>

    Love & licks
    Eva, your princess

    • Oh Eva you clever girl…….I’m afraid on this one yes it DOES matter where you live….and I am sooo sorry!! I still LOVE YOU! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  13. Bacon!?! Did somebody say Bacon!?! We ALL love bacon! Turkey bacon, pork bacon it does not matter! We gets bacon sometimes from a local farmer and wow! That stuff is to die for! Especially when Mommy fries up the skin for doggie treats. And then ther is FRIED TOAST! When Mommy makes bacon for daddy, she fries bread in the bacon grease! Then when it cools, it gets cut into little pieces and wes gets it as treats. But not too much as we gets the poopies if we eats too much.
    Bacon! Mes GOTS to has bacon….

    • Nellie BOL!!! Do you like bacon??? BOL! Good luck! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  14. Maya & Pierson LOOOVVVEEE bacon and would love to try some turkey bacon. They will gladly do all sorts of tricks for them.

    BTW, Honey looks so cute in the video when she is sniffing for the turkey bacon. 🙂

  15. Bailey & Katy here, we LOVE bacon. The smell, the texture, and the flavor just make it such a treat. Mixed with turkey and it sounds like a match made in heaven. We love bacon.

    Great review Dakota. Your Mom does a wonderful job getting you involved in these taste tests.

    • Hi Bailey & Kathy! Thanks for the kind words!! I can sure tell you LOVE BACON!! Best of luck! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  16. Of course we love bacon! I was so excited when I started to see Fresh Pet in my Canadian stores. We’ve tried several of their treats and my dog adores them. Of course, she adores everything. I also love their refrigerated food and we’ve used that as treats for training as well.

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!

    • Kristine you are welcome!! Best of luck!! So glad FreshPet has moved into Canada! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Hi Jet! I ate mine whole too!!! BOL! I had TWO of em! One I grabbed straight from the bag and the other Mom gave me! My Mom almost took a bite but didn’t, she’s still thinking about it with the ones I have left! Good luck! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  21. The dogs have never had bacon. Besides the fact that it’s not healthy, well, the humans in the house just like it too much. I’m sure they’d love turkey bacon though. And the same way they don’t touch our bacon, we wouldn’t touch theirs! lol Thanks for the giveaway.

    • cynthia I think you might try it!! If you didn’t see the video, check it out! Good luck! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  22. Turkey Bacon..dat is the nommiest combination. Mommie only gibs me lil bit of bacon at a time. I fink she will give me more of his one. And I luv Freshpet products anyhow. Mom buys me their Chicken & Rice Roll in the refridgerator section at the doggie store. I gobble it up!! Awoooooooooo
