Full Moon Training Treats - What's Not To Love?

Ruby has never liked water - not the drinking kind, but the swimming and bathing kind. Although we knew that she would probably never be a dog that leapt into the waves, we always hoped that she would eventually grow more comfortable with the beach and water in general. We tried many things to change her mind, but hadn't had much luck ...until about two weeks ago when we tried Full Moon Training Treats

Ruby loves Full Moon's new bite-size, all natural Training Treats.

Full Moon Training Treats - What's Not To Love?

Quite simply, Ruby loves Full Moon Training Treats. She loves them so much that on a recent trip to the beach - she almost forgot she hates water (see video proof below).

Full Moon's new training treats are available in either chicken or duck. The treats are made from 100% human grade meat without any fillers, artificial flavors, or added junk. They are also made in the United States with ingredients from USDA approved farms.

These treats are small in size (about 1/2 inch around and 1/4 inch thick), and with only three calories they are a great treat option for small to medium-sized dogs or those prone to weight gain. Full Moon Training Treats are soft, palatable, and virtually odor-free to humans. This is a big plus for me as I have a sensitive nose and dislike stinky pet treats. They are also light weight, making them easy to carry on adventures. 

Full Moon is a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated company of dog lovers. They specialize in healthy, all natural dog treats and their full line of products is available online as well as at Target and Walmart.

Putting Full Moon Training Treats To The Test 

A few Sundays ago (on my birthday) we decided to put these treats to the test with a day trip to the beach. We did some hiking and then had a picnic. Our goal for the day was to see if Ruby would join us for a walk along the shore and maybe (just maybe) dip her paws into the water without getting super stressed. 

With the help of a few of these delicious treats, lots of reassurance, and positive reinforcement - she accomplished this goal. The treats made a great incentive and the low caloric count meant we could give her a few extra rewards without worrying about weight gain. Seeing Ruby relax at the beach was pretty much the best birthday gift of all! We give Full Moon Training Treats four enthusiastic paws up!

  3. Looks tasty!

    How wonderful for you, Ruby! Those must be really tasty treats!

    I wonder if those treats would help Hailey with the water as she feels the same as Ruby.

    Look at you, Ruby! Great job! These must be some very tasty treats.

    Awww Ruby! So glad you love these new treats that can keep your body looking poochie perfect! I like that they are odor free! I always wondered why so many treats smell so horrible!

    You know what, I think that Ruby and our dog Eddie would be best buds. Eddie also isn't into water. After his several back surgeries, it was recommended to us to try him out swimming. We got him a life jacket and found a friend who didn't mind a dog in her pool. He just kept swimming over to the sides to get out. :-)

  10. Love the video. My terrier is not fond of water either, though neither am I, so I've never encouraged him. Sometimes he will jump in stinky stagnant ponds though, which is really fun...

  11. Oh yum, that looks delish!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    PS - Tip: Act kinda dumb and see if you get more treats BOL!

  12. If Ruby says they're tasty, well that's good enough for me. Mom likes the fact they're on 3 calories.

    Aroo to you,

  13. Yay Ruby, great job! You did really well creating a positive association between the treats and the water. My dogs love the Full Moon bacon treats, they've been really helpful in reinforcing our emergency recall training - it's the only time they get bacon. We don't cook much bacon in our house so the Full Moon bacon treats help us with emergency recall training!

    Those must be some tasty treats!!! Ruby, my adventure kitties Sophie and Kylo Ren can totally sympathize with your dislike of the water. I tried taking them out on the beach one time, and they hated it. Perhaps we should tempt them onto the beach with these treats! MOL!

  15. These treats sound great--the lack of smell is definitely a bonus for me. I wonder if my guys would like them well enough to get them to start barking at the neighbors and the mailman lol.

  16. these sound really good. Always looking for good training treats that the pugs would love but like you I don't like stinky. We also are looking for something to entice Hazel to eat her meals. Just when we think we have her figured out she starts being hesitant again

  17. when you are reviwing great treats, you need the perfect model and YOU have her Well done Ruby :-)

    They MUST be good, if you can get in the water like that!

  19. Jessica ShipmanApril 19, 2017 at 4:50 PM

    We are trying out these treats soon too! My pups can't wait and I'm glad they were a hit with you too! We've had such great success with Full Moon treats in the past, so I'm sure these aren't any different.

    Awesome treats! ALL dog and cat treats should be human grade! I want to almost mistakenly eat it myself.

  21. Those treats sound perfect for my gang! Ruby is so cute and I hope that she starts enjoying the beach more.

    I love having duck as a training treat. Dogs and cats usually really enjoy them. Great job on your training.

  23. That's some good yum pretty Ruby! I didn't have to be trained to like treats, I liked them right off!

  24. They sound great! Love that it's a family owned company.

  25. We love Full Moon and were so excited to see there smaller treats at Global! But, Ruby, no matter how much I love all their treats, nothing, I repeat nothing, will get me in the water. You are to be commended. Love Dolly Pees: Mom brought home a sample so we got to try them too!

    1. Hi Kris! Did you get my email about Ruby and Dolly's get together? I sent it a few days ago, I know you're busy just want to make sure you've seen it, or maybe it's in your spam folder. Thanks!

  • How brave of you Dolly :) The Girls here LOVE those treats :)

  • The Island CatsApril 19, 2017 at 8:56 PM

    Glad those treats are helping Ruby enjoy the water more.

  • Tenacious Little TerrierApril 19, 2017 at 10:28 PM

    Treats that can get a water averse dog to wade are definitely special! Mr. N doesn't like getting wet either.

  • Yeah....I'm with you gurl!!! I don't likes water eithers! That is sayin' A LOT for a 'water dog' like myself! BOL!!! Nows, it doesn't 'stress' me, butts I avoid it if I can. I likes dry paws and dry furs, and that is THAT! ☺
    Must be a 'Ruby' thang....
    Ruby ♥♥
    pees: glads you got SO MANY treaties for that though! BOL

  • Go Ruby!! That's awesome. I'm wondering if these would be motivation for Piper for getting closer to the car? We are looking for all the inspiration we can get on overcoming her fear of the car. Then we can test whether or not she's afraid of the car ;-)

  • We go nuts for these, especially the duck ones!

  • Just looking at Ruby lip smacking is enough for me to know that the treat is super yummy. Also the fact that Ruby forgot her dislike for water is a big paws up

  • Ruby those are lip lickin' good. I think I'd probably like them too. After all
    in my opinion all food is my friend.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  • I wonder if these would have worked with our beagle Kobi? He never liked the water either, but he sure loved treats. However, throwing them in our little pool would still not get him in there to cool off!

    So proud of you!
