KONG Premium Jerky Dog Treats: Product Review and Giveaway



Jeffie's birthday party continues!  
What would a dog's birthday party be without treats?!

When we were contacted by JAKKS Pacific, Incl, and asked to give their new dog treats a try, the dogs said:  YES!

After learning that JAKKS Pets has partnered with the KONG Company to create their Premium Treat Line, the humans said: YES!  As we learned more about them, we were happy to agree to let them send us some of their new dog jerky treats for a taste testing, review and a giveaway!


Be sure to enter because 3 lucky winners will receive 1 package each:
  • KONG Chewy Treats Natural Jerky - Beef
  • KONG Chewy Treats Natural Jerky - Chicken
  • *Bonus* KONG Long Lasting Chews - KONG Chew Buddies, Puppy Teething Loaf, Ham Shank or Drumstick (depending on the size of your dog.)
 
You may have already heard about the new KONG Premium Treat line.  Their jerky treats are all natural and include NO wheat, soy, corn, or animal by-products.  Plus, no artificial colors or artificial preservatives.

Varieties include:
  • KONG Natural Jerky Strips - 92% real meat and come in Beef and Chicken.
  • KONG Meat Stix - KONG Beef Meat Stix include apples, carrots, and extra vitamins.  KONG Lamb Meet Stix include salmon for Omega 3 and 6 for a healthier skin and coat.
  • KONG Thick Cut Jerky - the beef treats include blueberries, peas and ginger.  The turkey includes cranberries, carrots and sweet potato.
  • KONG Meaty Flavor Bites - real bacon, real beef, and real cheese.
  • KONG Mini Meaty Bites come in beef and chicken.  Sized for training and rewarding.
  • KONG Sweet Potato Stix - vegan treats include sweet potato, carrots and peas.
  • KONG Crunchy Flavor Bars - Lamb with blueberries, peas and apples;  Chicken with cranberries, carrots, broccoli, and peas.
  • KONG Dental Chews - chicken, calcium for puppies and seniors, and fresh breath with alfalfa and parsley varieties.
  • KONG Small and Large chew Buddies
  • KONG Puppy Teething Loaf

We received:
  1. KONG Chewy Treats Thick Cut Jerky in beef flavor:  92% real US-sourced beef with chicory, lecithin, salt, cultured whey, mixed tocopherols, and garlic.
  2. KONG Chewy Treats Thick Cut Jerky in chicken flavor: 92% real US-sourced chicken with chicory, lecithin, salt, cultured whey, mixed tocopherols, and garlic.
  3. KONG Chew Treats Chew Buddies in a variety pack: bacon, chicken and fresh breath. (Ingredients vary.)


It would be a serious understatement to say all three dogs loved these treats!  As we opened the bags, the smell of jerky filled the room.  And it smelled good to the humans, too


Beef?  Chicken?  They liked them both.  We didn't try stuffing them into our KONG toys, but that would be great for treat time!



We like the new KONG Premium Jerky dog treats because they're made in the United States with real beef and chicken.  After all the recalls of pet jerky treats made in China, it is a relief to know that KONG makes a safe, natural jerky dog treat!  

KONG's Premium line of jerky treats was developed with special attention to oral care, skin and coat maintenance and allergy concerns.


The Chew Buddies (shown above) help clean teeth and they're available in two sizes:  small and large. They come in fun animal shapes.  Jeffie particularly enjoyed the squirrel!



We're glad to give the new KONG Premium Jerky dog treats an all paws up recommendation.  They're already on our shopping list!

For more information about these new dog treats, visit KONG on the web or the KONG Treats Facebook page.

  4. Our dogs love love love these treats. We received some a few weeks ago and it was hard slowing down, because I would just reach for the bag and they would line up and sit nicely in front of me.

    The smell is strong and it stuck to my fingers, but I just washed my hands after doling out treats. They love these!
