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. New look, new flavours (think Juicy Boerewors, Yummy Peanut Butter, Caramel and Condensed Milk, and 11 more), in Crunchy, Munchies, Squishies and Puppy Trainers. 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.
