Ruby Reviews: The Bear & The Rat Yogurt Treats + Giveaway


The Ginger Sisters are happy to try out any kind of new treats, and because we do so much training I prefer the treats to be healthy and beneficial. I was delighted to sample the latest product from local Denver, Colorado company The Bear & The Rat (you may have seen them on Shark Tank!). 


Fro-Yo To Go are freeze dried yogurt treats loaded with helpful probiotics. They come in two flavors: Bacon and Sweet Potato & Carrot, with over 150 yogurt bites in a bag. The girls were very excited to try the Bacon flavor. 


The treats are made in the USA and are corn, soy, wheat, gluten and grain free. The treats smell really good, with a creamy tang that smells like a frozen yogurt shop. They are about the size of a dime and I think they must melt in the dogs' mouths, the way they licked their lips and were ready for more. 


I have only two minor complaints about the freeze-dried yogurt treats: they are very delicate and got pretty broken up in the bag. This isn't a big deal since I like smaller training treats, anyway. They also make your hands a little sticky. I told you - minor complaints. The Ginger Sisters loved them, I love the ingredients, and I am happy to support a local company. 


The Ginger Sisters Ruby did some tricks to earn some more frozen yogurt treats. She waved "bye bye" while Boca laughed because "down" is one of the only tricks she knows.

We are giving away two packages of Fro-Yo To Go to one lucky winner - must be a U.S. resident and respond to the notification email within 72 hours.

  1. Those treats look awesome! I would really like to teach my dogs the frisbee flip but I don't think we're ever going to get it.

    1. Ruby has just started catching her flying disc mid-air. My aunt had an aussie mix that would back flip!

  2. I would love to teach my dog to shake next. He is just a puppy so he hasn't mastered much in the trick department! LOL

  3. My little boston pup can do sit and down so far. I would like to teach him shake as a first simple trick.

    1. Shake is a great one! Ruby will shake with either paw.

  4. Baby and I are working on learning roll over right now. It's challenging for her because she's really hesitant to roll into her back, but so far going extra slow with cheese is yielding slow progress.

    I bet working with these would be even better though! (For the trick and her waist...)

    1. Ruby's roll over is really funny because she adds a little half-somersault in, too.

    1. Baby steps! Boca is still working on her stay as well. Ruby's is good in the house, thanks largely I think to the Relaxation Protocol.

    1. That's one of Ruby's favorites! Boca is learning but her balance isn't as good as Ruby's. She is pretty wide-chested and I think that makes it harder.

  11. All of my dogs except one know how to shake paws. These would be great for teaching Seiji.

  22. I'm working on training my dog the pawstand (handstand), cover her eyes, and we are polishing up her 'limp' and 'cross paws' tricks! We entered your giveaway through an "Amie De" Facebook account.

    1. Wow - pawstand and limp are so impressive!

  23. That's so cute! My two girls don't get into the whole trick thing either, they'd rather just watch Luke do the work, and then see if they can score a treat out of the deal too! LOL
    We're currently working on turning off lights. I want to do "roll over" and "play dead" but we've had no luck with it so far!
