March 2, 2010Dog Joy: Tempting Little Tasties

Believe it or not, I don’t buy every cool dog product I come across. Let’s be honest here — mama’s self-employed, and she’s gotta raise the rent. And while my willpower is generally low when it comes to economic abstinence, it’s quite easy to say no when it comes to treats and food. The mere thought This may cause explosive diarrhea is often enough to encourage pause.

These little tasties, however, have been catching my eye in our neighborhood grocery store for several weeks now, and I just might break down and get some soon enough.

(I love the design of these bags — like the pup’s doing the punchline from that old “Do you like see-food” joke.)

Dog Joy treats (from FreshPet Select) are found in the refrigerated section of your grocery store — ’cause they’re made from 100% natural ingredients and gently cooked, just like real people food. Since they need refrigeration to stay fresh, I’m guessing they’re not heavily processed and full of scary preservatives and chemicals like lots of other grocery-store treats.

Dog Joy treats are available at your grocery store in beef and chicken varieties.

    I don’t know where you shop, but I’ve never seen the likes of these at Super Target. That being said, I think my little gummer Charlie would enjoy these, because they appear to be melt-in-your-mouth good, which is what he needs, since he’s toothless and all. I think he lost his teeth in all those bar fights overseas during Dubya Dubya 2. He had a mean streak and a pooch in every port! You should hear him when he kicks back with a brewskie and starts reminescing and telling the same stories over and over. “Come on over here and sit down next to Uncle Charlie and let me tell ya ’bout the good ole days when men were men.”

    Okay, I’m getting off the subject. Thanks for the link!

    yes, these are good treats! Or at least, my pups seem to think so! :) Your dogs will be happy if you finally “break down” and buy them. ;)

    Madison gives these two paws up. In Cincinnati they are located at Kroger and I also noticed some PetSmart stores are also starting to carry FreshPet products

    I use these treats and love them! But, they are sold in the dog food aisle in a apecial refrigerator in my Safeway. It has other products from Freshpet Select in it. I tried those, the dogs love the food as much as treats.

    Sarah – Just be sure you run away if you hear Uncle Charlie say “Pull my paw”…

    Thanks, guys! I’m happy to have endorsements from pups who have tried the Dog Joys. Who knows, next time I hit the Ingles my pups may get lucky…
