Review: Halo Liv-a-Littles treats

We recently got to try these freeze-dried chicken treats from Halo Pets. I’ve heard about the company before (and of course, its famous co-owner, Ellen DeGeneres), but this was our first time trying one of Halo’s products. And I’m happy to report that we definitely liked it!

For one, it’s hard to beat this limited-ingredients list:

Freeze-dried chicken breast, Marinade (sodium phosphate, salt, carrageenan)

That’s it! Impressive. Obviously, you could just make some chicken at home, but I know convenience is always a factor.

The treats are somewhat delicately composed and crumbly, so they wouldn’t be ideal training treats (as I imagine they’d get ground to a fine powder if they were in a treat bag), but they’re ideal for on-the-fly training at home or just everyday snacks.

Another great feature of these treats, for those in multi-pet households, is that they’re formulated treats for dogs and cats. (Which makes sense, seeing as it’s just freeze-dried chicken.)

As you can see, Pyrrha (who got to be the lucky taste-tester this time) was willing to pull out all of the stops in order to snag one of these treats:

Review: Halo Healthsome Biscuits

Like many of you, we normally have a wide range of dog treats on hand. We have tiny treats for training, chews for boredom, and a miscellaneous assortment of sizes, shapes, and types of treats for spontaneous rewards.


I think these Halo Healthsome Biscuits will fall into our category of “toss-in-the-crate” treats (e.g., slightly more substantial treats that we give to our fosters when we’re crate training).

We let Draco be the taste tester for these biscuits, and as you can see, he was very interested.


We got to test the protein and fiber formula. The ingredients are:

Whole Wheat Flour, Beef, Beef Liver, Potato Flour, Pea, Flour, Chicken Liver, Rolled Oats, Chicken Fat (Preservedwith Natural Mixed Tocopherols), Pumpkin, Tomatoes, Apples, Sweet Potatoes, Cranberries, Split Peas, Carrots, Green Beans, Green Bell Pepper, Celery, Parsley, and Ascorbic Acid

which I feel great about!


These biscuits normally sell for $7.49 for an 8-oz. bag, but they are currently on sale for $4.99 a bag at

The biscuits crumble easily, like a granola bar, which makes them more difficult for training use, but very nice for the occasional treat and for teaching new pups that great things come when they settle into the crate.

Have you ever tried Halo products? Are there particular varieties that you like or would recommend?
