Happy Tasty Tuesday! I love this blog hop, run by Kolchak Puggle and Sugar the Golden Retriever. Today we visit a pair of teacup Chihuahuas who fell in love with Jones Natural Chews. When I say fell in love, I do mean it. We’ll talk a little about fearful dogs and what works for me in warming them up.
I say before I opened the Rocky’s Rollers, because magical things happened after I opened them.
Callie is no spring chicken. She borders on being a senior dog. Her mom told me that she’s never warmed up to anyone but herself and her husband (in the last couple of years, not the first five or six). Even the adult kids get the bark and retreat treatment when they visit. That’s gotta hurt, being rejected by mom’s dog. But some furbabies are like that. So I’m telling you that my friend didn’t expect Callie to give me the time of day. I have very little experience with Chihuahuas, so I didn’t really expect it either, even though I know that Jones Natural Chews are magical.
Do you want to know my secret when it comes to dogs coming to me for treats? I mean, besides always having Jones Natural Chews on hand (dogs go straight to my purse, nose on full alert, trying to get in). I sit on the floor when I go to people’s homes, or on the ground if we’re outside. I get down on the dog’s level. Then I ignore them. I expect the dog to want nothing to do with me or be afraid of me, so I talk to the human while I take treats out of the bag and break them into smaller pieces. Try it sometime.
This Teacup Chihuahua is just the cutest thing. Tinier than either of my toy dogs. And so much fierce wrapped in fur! I honestly didn’t expect her to come near me, not even for Jones Natural Chews. But guess what?
But wait! That’s not all! This is a success story, after all. And one which shocked her mother.
So. Are Jones Natural Chews really magical treats for dogs? Are there bits of rainbow and unicorn horn in them? Do they sell for astronomical amounts of money because they have the ability to lure and subdue any dog on the face of the earth? I wish I could answer yes to those questions. But here’s the real magic of Jones Natural Chews.
- Each treat or chew is 100% all natural – ZERO artificial ingredients
- Each treat or chew is 100% grown (farmed) and produced on US soil (all of the production happens in Rockford, IL)
- Each treat or chew is put through a rigorous inspection process, in a meticulous environment
- Each treat or chew has extremely limited ingredients, with many or most being single ingredient treats
- Jones Natural Chews are affordable – for an all natural, completely USA grown and made treat, they’re surprisingly well priced
So tell me what works for you with a fearful, clingy dog. Do you employ the same techniques, or something else entirely? Because honestly, Jones Natural Chews are the grease for the wheel. They help it all go more smoothly, but there’s so much more than just the treat.
Now go give your own dog a treat! Jones will make your dog smile. Naturally.
Until I write again …
