Peanut and I tested out these freeze-dried types:
- Chicken Heart
- Beef Liver
- Turkey Gizzard
The Chicken Heart and Beef Liver treats also have the option of coming in a training morsel form, which is just a smaller version of the same treat.
Right off the bat I can tell you Peanut’s favorites were the training morsels. For Peanut, who is a small dog, it is so much easier to chew a smaller treat, otherwise it turns into a big chewing session. The larger treats, like the Turkey Gizzards, are great for bigger dogs but would be a big treat for a small dog.
I was afraid that they would be kind of crumbly since they are freeze-dried treats, but they maintain their shape really well! In fact, I tried ripping them in half and they clearly still had a lot of their initial texture and strength. I could easily put them in a baggy and jostle them around while hiking or running without an issue.
Plus, they are really appetizing to my picky dog. While the training morsels were easiest to use, he enjoyed trying every single type of freeze-dried meat.
What We Love:
My favorite thing about these treats is the weight to nutrient ratio. We love going on long backpacking trips so a highly nutritious treat that doesn’t take up a lot of space or weight is awesome.
I also love the training morsel option. It makes training so much easier and I can give more treats in one training period without worrying about feeding my dog too much.
What We Would Change:
The only thing I noticed about these treats is that some of them are slightly oily. Peanut is all about that extra flavor, but it doesn linger on your fingers. Obviously not a deal breaker, but just be aware and keep them in a plastic baggy when you go out and about .
These treats are kind of expensive, but you are getting a single ingredient treat from human grade sources, so I think it is totally worth the money.
I was impressed with how this treat did. I love how much weight is saved with it being freeze dried and the nutrients that are preserved using this method. Plus, Fig and Tyler is a company that supports giving back to the community, and I always love to support a company working to do good for others.
If you want a high quality treat that offers high quality nutrition and flavor for your pet, along with lots of varieties to choose from, give Fig and Tyler a try.

I’m a good ol’ Midwestern transplant that moved to Colorado for mountains and adventure. I love rock climbing, writing, and eating cookies. When I’m not on the side of a cliff you can find me walking my dog, Peanut, playing piano, and blogging about my climbing adventures on The Gobi Gazette.
