Jones Natural Chews are one of those product lines I have difficulty with – as a vegetarian, I cringe at knowing exactly what dead animal part I’m feeding my dog.
However, as a pet parent concerned about what I’m feeding my carnivore pup, Jones Natural Chews is exactly what I prefer to give him.
Jones is a family-owned company evolved from six generations of butchers producing quality meats form humans. From quality meat come quality bones and long before Jones Natural Chews (amazon.ca affiliate) was a pet company in 1991, customers arrived at their butcher shop for dog bones.
All Jones dog products are grown, produced and manufactured in the USA.
Stuffed stuff is the company’s newest product line. While I balk at the sight of a Cheezy Bone – cheese and bacon flavour filled beef bone – or the Stuffed Windees – chicken and rice flavour filled beef trachea, dogs experience the opposite reaction.
Both types of stuffed chews are a bit too big for my aging terrier-cross Victor, so I taste tested the ones Jones sent me for review with Victor’s best buddy Sasha, a lab/Malinois-cross with jaws of steel and a heart of gold.
I couldn’t get a good photo of the Stuffed Windees because the scent attracted Sasha’s attention. The minute I opened the package, she grabbed the chew like a vegan at a salad bar. With some coaxing, she dutifully poised for one outdoor photo before dodging into the house to protect her treasure from potential poachers (like Victor).
I took almost 10 minutes for her to gnaw through that trachea and that’s a record for her – usually it’s one minute. These chews keep big dogs busy, and very happy.
Vegetarians, not so much.
