    Default Energy Bars

    Does anyone on RTF have an opinion on Team Realtree XtremFuel Canine Booster Bars. Last season when I hunted my 2 year old lab hard 2 or 3 days in a row he seemed drained on day 2 and 3. Does this stuff work or does anyone use anything else?

    I've been tempted to try them but they're pretty expensive if you look at how they recomend feeding them it could be costly. So I've not taken the plunge yet.

    I use to use the Purina bars every now and then, but I was never convinced that they really did much. Maybe in situations like long days of training/hunting and I mean where the dog put out much more energy that it does on average they are of use. I kind of think the “Team Realtree” bars are all about the $$$$$$$. What exactly does Realtree know about dog nutrition? Camo yes, dog food........eh no.

    They are made by the Tuffy's dog food company and actually are part of the NurtiSource line of dog food. They are a little spendy.

    I use to carry those foods that were like ground beef patties and give small portions several times during te hunt. When I was on the trail of a wily ring neck I didn't want low blood sugar to affect the dog.
