Earthborn Holistic Dog Treats – Lamb Treats for Dogs!
Have you ever debated between helping to save the planet and buying a bag of dog treats? Me neither. But if you ever have, Earthborn Holistic will certainly help solve that dilemma!
Not only does Earthborn Holistic make premium dog foods, cat foods, and dog treats, they have a program that turns UPC codes from their product packages into trees!
They also have the ReBORN program that donates money to pet charities AND they are huge into finding ways to help the environment and our earth.
Simba’s BFF at Chewy.com helped us choose the lamb recipe Earthborn Holistic dog treats for our participation in the Chewy influencer program. In exchange for Simba’s honest opinion of products, Chewy sends us a couple of bags of free treats per month. As you can imagine, Simba loves Chewy!
Earthborn Holistic EarthBites
Earthborn’s EarthBites lamb treats for dogs are soft, moist, and chewy premium treats your dog will totally drool for! They are made with high-quality lamb meals, wholesome fruits, and vegetables and are packed full of omega fatty acids and vitamins!
EarthBites come in several different pawsome flavor recipes including –
- Chicken meal
- Lamb meal
- Hip & joint (turkey protein with glucosamine & chondroitin sulfate)
- Skin & coat (fish protein with balanced Omega -6 & Omega -3 fatty acids)
EarthBites Lamb Meal Recipe
All of the EarthBites recipes are grain-free and the lamb meal recipe is no exception.
The lamb recipe is packed full of protein-rich lamb meals as well as nutritious and delicious fruits and vegetables.
Lamb meal is right at the top of the ingredients which packs these treats with a good amount of protein – a minimum of 15%!
These treats are also a good source of vitamin E, vitamin C, Omega-6 fatty acids, and Omega -3 fatty acids. All of which help keep your dog healthy in their skin and coat soft and shiny!
The Look and Size
A company called Earthborn Holistic makes me think of a business that is reliable and genuine but also down to earth with a solid straightforward approach. I think this comes through in the appearance of the EarthBites.
Earth Bites are just a simple cylindrically shaped dog treat. Kind of like if you were to cut a Slim Jim into 1-inch pieces.
Since the treats are soft and chewy, the shape makes them super easy to break or cut into smaller pieces which is great for smaller dogs or for use as training treats.
In a way, I find the shape comforting … knowing they didn’t spend extra time and money trying to make the treats cute. Instead, they spent their time and money making the treats nutritious and healthy.
What People Think
Simba couldn’t get enough of these Earthborn dog treats! When she REALLY wants something she is perfect at sitting at attention and she was sitting like an angel for these! Even if I would move an inch, she’d be up but her rear would hit the floor ASAP! I couldn’t even get her to let go of the bag when we were taking a picture for this post!
Earthborn isn’t a massive company like some other manufacturers so the number of reviews is smaller. The reviews they do have are excellent!
People are saying great things on Chewy.com!
UPCs for Trees
Earthborn Holistic has an awesome program called UPCs for Trees.
Each Earthborn Holistic product has a UPC code on the package. When you mail in those UPC codes, they plant trees!
So far this program has planted 552,402 trees around the world, helping to reduce harmful greenhouse gases!
It’s pretty spectacular that by doing a little thing like sending back UPCs, we can have a big impact on our earth!
Donating to Pet Charities
In partnership with TerraCycle, the Earthborn ReBorn Project helps raise money for pet charities; so far they’ve helped raise $32,802.
How it works: bring your empty Earthborn Holistic bags to a participating retailer and place them in the ReBORN collection bin. The bags are shipped to TerraCycle where they are weighed and recycled.
Each pound of Earthborn Holistic bags results in money being donated to that retailer’s pet charity of choice!
Find a participating retailer so that you can recycle your Earthborn Holistic bags!

Pros & Cons
Polling my and Simba’s opinions of the Earthborn Holistic EarthBites lamb meal recipe, here are some pros and cons –
- Simba absolutely devours them
- The price is great
- Made with high-quality lamb meal and fruits and vegetables
- Earthborn Holistic is extremely active in preserving and saving the environment
- Decent size package for treats
- Simba found no cons
- The only con I have is that they smell like wet dog food, so not a big deal considering they ARE dog food.
- One reviewer on chewy.com indicated he felt they were too “medicinal” smelling (I did not find them with our bag).
These Earthborn Holistic lamb treats for dogs are big paws up for Simba! She honestly could not get enough of them and was glued to my side until I finally put the bag down on the countertop.
Simba gives them a paw way up! Cheers to our Earth!
