The Lickety Stik has an important place in the dog treat world for its low calorie count and compact, travel-ready design. The small rollerball bottle holds a liquid treat (chicken, liver or bacon flavor) that rolls right onto your happy dog’s tongue.
Here’s what PetSafe has to say about this new product:
“No mess. Just hold the Lickety Stik bottle and your pet gets all the enjoyment while your hands and clothes stay dry and clean. Virtually no calories — just one in every 10 licks. The 1.69 oz bottle easily fits in a glove compartment, back pocket and purse, so you can maximize your pet's training with on-the-spot rewards.”
As a consumer I agree with each statement — except we did spill some liver flavor on the floor during training class. My partner said I didn’t need to squeeze the tube, just let the dog lick the treat off the rollerball. Overall, I found the product very clean; and appreciated that it doesn’t crumble like dry dog treats. Our dog (a Lab) can’t eat solid food due to Mega-esophagus so she doesn’t get many traditional treats. For training classes the Lickety Stik is ideal. Bonus: the bottle lasts a long time.
As for the nutritional value, it’s a fairly natural and healthy treat. Take the ingredients in the Braised Liver formula for example: natural liver flavors, cultured milk, lecithin, mixed tocopherols (natural preservative — a source of vitamin E), ascorbyl palmitate (source of vitamin C), rosemary extract, green tea extract.
