5 Reasons a Knee Cap is the All-Natural Rage
Yes, I said a Knee Cap. Your dog loves Knee Caps, doesn’t it? If your dog hasn’t had a Knee Cap, then perhaps you should find a store in your area that sells Jones Natural Chews and get it one! Why, you ask? I’ll give you 5 reasons Knee Caps are the all-natural rage.
- Jones Knee Caps are 100% all natural, meaning NO artificial ingredients of ANY kind, EVER
- Jones Knee Caps are 100% grown and made in the USA, meaning there’s never any ingredient that is farmed or baked or anything else anywhere other than the USA – EVER
- Jones Knee Caps are the hard protective covering of the back knee of a cow, making it a sturdy chew for most dogs
- Being the sturdy chew that it is, the Jones Knee Cap will last longer than a jerky or softer treat
- Jones Knee Caps are single ingredient treats, meaning there’s nothing but Knee Cap – well, with a hint of natural liquid smoke for flavor

Do Dogs Like Them?
But do dogs like the Knee Cap? I’d have to say, based on my limited experience, that it’s not necessarily the first treat choice for a dog. Not when faced with the choice between the Knee Cap and the Pumper (a pig heart, baked like a jerky and quickly devoured), or a beef jerky treat. But the dogs I’ve given the Knee Cap to have tucked them away for later. Remember Miss Belle? And Pierre?
Her mama tells me that Belle has been hiding her Knee Cap all over the house, taking it out to gnaw on it all day long. She says the Knee Cap is now white and much smaller. Good dog. This seems to play out with other dogs as well. The Knee Cap is a bone, good for gnawing and teeth cleaning, not meant to be eaten as a treat in one sitting.
Safety Rules for Treats
Speaking of which, let’s run down the safety rules for treats.
- Always monitor your dog when it’s eating a treat, especially if it’s a bone
- Take a bone away from your dog if it splinters, and/or when it is small enough to be swallowed and be a choking hazard – Knee Caps are round in structure and far less likely to splinter
- On that note, make sure you get the right size bone for your dog – larger than your dog’s mouth, but small enough to gnaw on (get it’s teeth around)
“Wait, you mean to tell me I can only have a bone to gnaw if it’s just the right size? GIVE. ME. THE. KNEE. CAP.”
I run into this problem all the time with dogs. They don’t understand when I explain things to them. *sigh* Rather, they just don’t WANT to understand. I wouldn’t either if a Jones chew was on the line.
So that’s the Jones Knee Cap! You know your dog wants one. My dogs want one, but I gave them all to other dogs. *sad face* We’re going to give one of YOUR dogs a Knee Cap, though! Just use the Rafflecopter thingy right below this to enter. Tweet daily! It works!
