The story in the news recently concerning dog treats has had a lot of people concerned due to recalls because of tainted ingredients from China. Waggin’ Train and other brands of chicken jerky treats were found to contain salmonella and were on the recall list. With that on so many dog owners minds, one has to ask are there any safe and healthy Chicken Jerky Treats For Your Poodle?
A lot of people make home cooked meals for their dogs and a lot of people also bake their dogs cookies and treats, but a chicken jerky treat is a little more complicated to make at home. But with so much bad wheat gluten and other ingredients that come from China and other countries where there is no regulation on dog food production, where can you get safe and healthy jerky treats that are made from higher quality ingredients that don’t come from China? A company called Grove Naturals has the answer and has come up with a top notch brand of Chicken Jerky Treats For Your Poodle.
Corn, wheat, preservatives, soy, and gluten are some of the most common ingredients found in today’s dog food and dog treats. And, most of today’s dog treats are even made overseas in countries such as China and Indonesia with little or no health inspection. Unfortunately, many of our furry friends are allergic to these ingredients, including my little Abbey Rose (Min. Schnauzer). So, finding a holistic dog treat or dog treat manufacturer that doesn’t have ANY one of these ingredients is hard to find and almost impossible.
Fortunately for us and our fur babies, Grove Naturals had this same problem over three years ago and created a product that provided a solution. Founded and operated by two sisters and a best friend: Tina, Mia and Kathy, their mission is to provide homemade dog treats made with USDA grade ingredients (food that humans can eat) that are hand packaged for quality assurance . They are also 100% free from wheat, soy, preservatives, artificial flavors and gluten. And, the best part- they’re DELICIOUS! My little Abbey Rose eats Grove Natural’s chicken jerky on a daily basis and never has any allergic reactions!
What encouraged Tina, Kathy and Mia to start such a venture? Well, it all started when they were volunteering for a local dog rescue and they met Diku. Diku was a puppy mill survivor when he was only a little baby and was very sick. For months he was brought to local rescue events only to be disappointed that he was never chosen as the puppy to go to a loving family. So, after months of seeing Diku’s face with sadness and lost love, they decided to adopt him. (Because of their strong love for rescue- 20% of their proceeds go to local rescues).
Ever since adopting Diku, Tina, Kathy and Mia were on a mission to find the one dog treat that didn’t upset his allergies and that he actually enjoyed. They noticed that Diku really loved dog jerky, however, everything on the market had all kinds of ingredients that would upset his allergies and were made overseas.
And so it began! Friends, neighbors, and fellow dog lovers, begged the two sisters and best friend to start producing and selling their finely made chicken jerky.
So don’t stop giving your dog a tasty reward. Now you can find a decent brand of Chicken Jerky Treats For Your Poodle that he or she will love and they won’t make them sick. Dogs have allergies too and these treats are fine for such dogs, too. I like that the owners of the company also donate 20% of their proceeds to shelters and local rescue groups.
