Every good dog needs a treat (in our house, aka a bribe). And these Bags O’ Wags (made from real meat) go down … well, a treat.

We’re going to try the Refreshing Mint Flavoured Dental Tubes variety (bye-bye dog breath). You’ll find them at pet stores and vets for between R17 and R76, depending on size and flavour.
