I hate having to choose between two good things. It just doesn’t seem fair. But that’s exactly what I’m going to ask you to do today. I want you to choose between the Crown Knuckle and the Steer Sticks.
It’s another contest Tuesday, July being our first blogaversary and all. I’ve enjoyed giving away treats every week, and have especially enjoyed hearing from our winners, how much their dogs have been excited about their treats arriving in the mail. I’m ready to make another dog smile!
We’ve talked about the Crown Knuckle, a joint from a cow tibia, and we’ve talked about the Steer Sticks, so I won’t embarrass myself by doing that again (if you weren’t part of that conversation, feel free to jump back and read). Let’s talk about Jones Natural Chews and why they make a treat which is a cut above other treats.
Jones Quality Assurance reads like this:
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]Jones Natural Chews Co. has always been very proud to have the American flag on all of our products. All of JNC’s products are 100% grown and made in the USA. Jones Natural Chews, Co. is very proud to announce we are now certified. A third party audit by “USA Made” has certified all of our products with our very own number on it.
We know you care what you feed your pets. The quality of our products are very important to us here at Jones’. We go out of our way to provide safe and wholesome edible chews and treats for your family members. We have a very severe HACCP (Hazard Analytical Critical Control Point) plan in place. Stringent cleanliness guidelines, product testing (in our in-house lab along with outside laboratories), and product lot code and tracking, are just a few things the HACCP plan covers.
We are inspected once a year by third party audits (AIB International).[/quote]
That’s all very nice. Seriously, I need to do some research and find out what percentage of dog treats on the market are actually 100% grown and made in the USA. Hopefully that number is growing. But Jones Chews have been around for more than 25 years, made in the USA this entire time. What else sets them apart?
Jones Natural Chews are 100% all natural. No artificial ingredients. None. Even the preservatives, for stable shelf life, are rosemary extract and natural glycerin. Also, those 100% all natural ingredients? Most of them are meat. Meat and bones from meat critters. What do dogs love? Meat.
For that matter, I love meat, too. Especially bacon. Mmmmm. Some month coming up we’ll have to give away some pork. It’s bacon for dogs.
I digress. What I really want to do today is give away a treat to some lucky dog. I want you to CHOOSE. We have a Crown Knuckle and a package of Steer Sticks up for grabs. All you need to do, to toss your hat in the ring as a winner, is leave a comment! You must be a US resident (shipping outside the US has become an insane thing, unfortunately). The deadline is this Thursday at midnight, Tulsa time (CST). That’s it! Leave a comment! Let me know what kind of dog you have. Whether it would like the Crown Knuckle (better for large dogs and aggressive chewers), or the Steer Sticks (any dog will love these!).
Until I write again …
P.S. You don’t have to wait to give your dog the best! Jones Chews can be found in many local pet stores and some feed stores (Atwoods). If they’re not local to you, Jones entire line is available at Natural Dog Treat Shop.
