Due to some food allergies, I’m a gluten-free eater. Because I’m super conscious of what I put in MY mouth, I try very hard to monitor what goes in Sampson and Delilah’s mouths as well. (FYI, I don’t always do so well with the gutter snuffer.)
Whenever possible I look for grain free treats made in the US and produced by small companies. I want to support the little guy as opposed to some big corporation.
Which is why Jones Natural Chews fits so well into our lifestyle. Jones is a small, family run business that’s been in the meat business for over 150 years. About 20 years ago, Jones began making dog treats. In those 20 years, they’ve had two (yes, only two) recalls. Manufactured in their plant in Rockford, Illinois, in small batches Jones treats are all natural. Besides being grain free, most of Jones treats are three ingredients or less.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand reading a paragraph of ingredients. I like it simple and easy with words I can pronounce.
Rocky’s Rollers are one of Jones newest treats. They come in three flavors, Lamb, Beef and Chicken. These treats happen to have more than three ingredients. To give you an example let’s look at the lamb flavored.
Lamb, lamb lung, rye flour, glycerin, brown sugar, salt, liquid smoke, flavoring, natural mixed tocopherals (preservative), and rosemary all packed in a collagen casing.
A few weeks ago, we got a box in the mail. I was expecting some supplements so I just set the box down. But Delilah knew the box was not supplements.
Once we got the box open we discovered we’d received one package of each!
While I was snapping pictures, Delilah thought she’d slip one over on me.
Once the dogs had thoroughly inspected the packages, I opened one up.
You guys…these treats look just like sausages.
These are BIG treats. To give you an idea, I placed one next to a butter knife.
You can break them up into smaller pieces, but for training purposes I like them really small, so I use my kitchen snips.
Once we had some of the pictures out of the way, it was time to see what the dogs thought.
The next night we tried a different flavor. This was the beef flavored, I’m pretty sure you can see how much Delilah loved them.
Sampson is a bit gentler, but he was still anxious to get his share of Jones’ Rocky Rollers.
The Jones’ Rocky Rollers were a big hit in our house. We’ve been using the Rocky Rollers when the dogs go to their places while we eat dinner. I cut them into quarters and the dogs each get two, so they are each actually getting half.
I love them because they are made in the USA, owned and operated by a family that’s been in the business for a very long time and takes pride and care in the product they make, and the ingredient base is limited.
One other thing I love about Jones, is they support Noah’s Ark Sanctuaries as well as their local homeless shelters and food banks.
