I look for many things when it comes to treats for my dogs.
- Where it’s made
- How many ingredients are in it
- WHAT the ingredients are
- Who makes it.
Believe it or not, those things are all factors. I could find a treat that’s made in the US, has two limited ingredients such as duck and pea flour and if it’s manufactured by a company I don’t trust, I will pass that treat up.
Oh yes I will.
Luckily for me, Jones Natural Chews meets all the requirements I look for in a treat.
So when my friend Flea asked me to review Jones’ new treat, the Frankenwoofer, I jumped at the chance. First because it’s made right here in the good ole’ US of A. Second because Jones’ is a family owned and operated business. And third because I can pronounce all the ingredients in this treat. (Except for tocopherols…does ANYONE know how to pronounce tocopherols? If so, please spell it out for me in the comments.)
Here’s what the treat looks like.
Basically it’s a beef patty wrapped around a Rocky’s Roller and baked. It’s doggie Nirvana.
And here are the ingredients: Beef Woofer 100% beef; Chicken Sausage (a.k.a. Rocky’s Rollers) – chicken, rye flour, glycerin, brown sugar, salt, liquid smoke flavoring, natural mixed tocopherols (preservative), rosemary extract in a collagen casing.
One of the things I love is the total versatility of this treat.
I mean, as far as treats go, it stands alone. It’s a ‘hot dog’ and a ‘hamburg’ all rolled into one. What dog wouldn’t want that?
AND if you get creative, you can make three treats out of one by cutting the ends off and giving your dog the woofer part. Then later on, give them the ends. You look like a total hero to your dog.
OR if you’re super creative, you can cut the ends off and then snip them into little treats and use them for training purposes.
Which is what I did.
Then I used the little snips and put them in the treat jar I keep by the back door. In a future post, I’ll show you WHY those treats are by the back door, but until then, remember, a dog’s nose knows Jones.
But how do the dogs like it? Let’s see if I can get a picture.
Sampson was a good boy and let me get a nice shot in.
I had to be quick with Delilah, she hasn’t quite gotten her Wait down yet, especially when it comes to yummy treats.
Both dogs licked the floor. (I KNEW I should have made them eat them on towels!)
We love the tender taffy from Jones, but the Frankwoofer might just be our new favorite.
How about you? Does your dog have a favorite treat?
