Tasty Tuesday – Real Dogs Eat Chicken Jerky Tenders

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our thirty-fifth participating post!

tasty tuesdays

We made the Baby Patches’ Tester Team (from Nip and Bones) and boy does it taste great!  Right around Turkey Day, I received this out of the blue.


Mom and I opened the package to find:


6Since we had a few Tasty Tuesday posts “in the hopper”, Mom made her faithful Kitchen K9s wait until yesterday to sample said product.  We wish we had a team t-shirt, since it was Monday Night Football and all, oops, I digressed again.  Ok, back to product review.

Mom liked the product because:

  • realdogs makes the jerky in the USA. Mom worries about the multitude (VBP – vocab building project) of recalls from products containing ingredients from China.
  • The treats have two ingredients – chicken and salt.
  • They do not use fillers or grain.  (Remember, I’m sort of trying to shrink a bit.)

Because I’m a caring brother, Little Miss Ladies First, got the first strip.

24Did you notice she left her super favorite new ball alone?


Mom apologizes for the fuzzy photo, however, she thought the in-motion chewing photo was worth it!

I used my shark bite technique and devoured that strip so fast Mom could not capture my enjoyment fast enough.



Obviously, we give Real Dogs All Natural Jerky 8 paws up and Mom’s Happy Face Seal of Approval.

Mom asked to share that going forward, she probably would cut the tenders in smaller pieces to use on Spa Day, after a park visit (maybe during) or as a way to lure (VBP) me out of the house when I’m frightened. Otherwise, she said JJ and I could go through the package in 1.5 minutes.  (Math: 3 strips per Kitchen K9 @ 30 seconds a strip)

Guess what? You can even try to get your photo on the bag!  Yup, you simply visit www.MakeYourDogFamous.com and follow the rules.

Another GREAT Real Dogs Chicken Jerky Tenders Day.

P.S. FYI – We did receive this tasty treat for free to review as a new member of the Baby Patches Testing Team.

P.P.S. –  Special plug – My BFF (best feline friend), Savannah, shares another inspiring story in her series Real Rescue Cats/Dogs are Talking.  Today, Nylablue, shares her story, pop over and… bring a hanky!

  1. Looks like the Kitchen K9’s give these treats two paws up..Mom tried to find a place to buy them locally but couldn’t any and she’s trying to shop locally these days. Maybe our Favorite store The Doggie Bag will start carrying them

  2. Love chicken jerky! It is just so expensive, so mom has started making it herself now and then for us – just as tasty or better than the stuff we can buy. Enjoy – have one for me 🙂

  3. Oh Jetty! You got a free treat and ow ou are official taste testers!! PAWSOME! None better than you Little Miss I Am So Sweet JJ have a lot of experience as QC for Mom when she is I her Kitchen Counselor Job! Paw hugs for mention of my interview with Nylablue. She is really brave. Hope she gets lots of new furriends for her blog

    • Hey Savvy, Jetty here. Hi Miss Linda.

      I know, isn’t that just pawesome! Obviously our Kitchen K9 QC qualifications did the trick! Most welcome, you know how much we admire and value your Real Cats/Real Dogs are Talking Series.

      Nylablue and Miss Sherri-Ellen said that lots of pals have stopped by today, so, yippee yahoo for paying it forward, Savvy.

  4. Hi sweet Jetty – you and JJ make the CUTEST taste testers I;ve ever seen! They do look yummy! Right now, since Miss Cassie had an ear infection last week, is on antibiotic and her allergy was really acting up (??kinda strange cuz it’s not extra hot or rainy??) she has to only have special non-allergy treats that we buy from the vet. But I bet she would devour those as fast as you and JJ!

    Sending Happy Tuesday hello wishes to you, JJ, Mom, and Rachel

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy.

      OH NO… please send Cassie speedy recovery wishes from all of us at Casa Jetty. Maybe when she feels more comfy she can try some.

      Thanks for saying we look cute…

      Sending tasty tuesday Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie and Rex xoxoxox

    • Hey Blueberry, Jet here. Hi Linus.

      Supercool. Personally, I cannot believe that realdogs has not contacted us personally, sheesh, don’t they know talent when they see it? We’ve both been published after all! 🙂 (whoops, Mom says I’m letting my 15 seconds go to my head and that she will bring my paws back down to earth!!!)

  5. Wow, they must be good for JJ to leave THE ball alone!! You’re making me hungry Dude and Mum won’t feed me before our run – sigh!! 🙂

    Hope you’re having a fun day 🙂

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Hey Snoops, Jetty here. Hi Miss Annette.

      Dude, don’t you know it! She’s right, best to run on an emptyish tummy… Great day as usual, just had dinner… digesting and then will have our evening constitutional!

      Please give Mum some Jetty kisses and JJ hugs ok? Mom’s sending belly rubs your way. 🙂

  6. well we’re real dogs and born in the usa, so i think those treats are perfect for us. also, mom always checks the back of everything she feeds us and only will get it if it’s made in the us.

    yuki and rocket

    • Hey Yuki, Hey Rocket, Jet here.

      Yeah, Mom’s a fanatic (VBP – vocab builder project) about food safety, too. Now, she said we have food safety issues here in the states, too… however, less than in certain other countries. Plus, the news gets out fairly quickly if there is a problem. Our hooves and antlers are USA derived only as well.

    • Hey Kirby, Jet here.

      Thanks, Dude. You won’t believe this… a few years back, someone hand-me-acrossed a dehydrator to Mom… not sure if she would use it (she’s a gadget collector) and trying to declutter, she shared with her pal, Ellen. Now she wishes she had it back! Jet tested, Jet approved… oh Dude, that’s PAWESOME!!!

    • Hey FOW, Jet here.

      We do feel lucky, we’re rookies, so, we expect to be asked to fetch kibble and fill water bowls! Yes, Baby Patches makes great decisions from the Executive Chair!!! 🙂

  7. Woof! Woof! Yah I bet you and JJ can woof all of it in seconds. LOVE the name Real Dogs … Yes its a bit large so cutting into small pieces is safer. ENJOY! Happy Tasty Tuesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

    • Hey Sugar, Jet here. Hi Miss Rosalyn.

      We liked the name too… we can imagine your fetching face on a bag! Yes, cutting will happen during tv watching tonight! (Mom fits a smidge of tv watching here and there.)

  8. OMC! You guys sure did eats those purrty fast! Your momma was right. We sure are happy to carry USA only chicken jerky. We want our furriends to stay healthy and well. Thanks for the pawsome review my furriend. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrs

    • Hey Baby Patches, Jet here.

      Yippee yahoo, our first review made our team captain happy, whoo hoo! Yes, Mom worries about ingredient safety and unfortunately, food for the furfamily has suffered so many recalls over the last decade. (humans have issues with their food supply too… Mom deals with that in her Kitchen Counselor Newsletter in the food safety section.) We appreciate the time you take to sift and sort through the products out there so we do not have to. 🙂

  9. Hi, Jet! Although this is for dogs, I’m always interested in new brands because I prefer to feed our kitties food with fewer artificial ingredients and preservatives. I’ll have to check our local shop to see if they carry this brand for cats. Thanks for the tip!

  10. Oh Jetty you iz gorgeous….me doggie fur-end Sadie Mae (see pic in dog page we hab on our site) haz da same ‘shark’ quickness when da BACON Beggin’ Stripz come out of da cupboard, yow, yow!!!!! Your new fur-end, NYLABLUE.

    • Hey Nylablue, Jet here. Hi Miss Sherri-Ellen.

      Awww, shucks, Nylablue, you’ve got me blushing now… I try to be gentlemanly about it Nylablue, but, gosh, Mom always offers such yummy treats…

      Now we’re old pals, ok? We feel like we’ve known you forever. Any furiend of Savvy’s is a furiend of mine! 🙂

  11. Nylablue’s Human here: just wanted to say Thank you for ‘pluggin’ our blog!!! I have to say I have met so many new people & 4 leggeds & have cried tears of joy today!!! Everyone here is amazing & I am so glad we found this blog site. Jetty here is a B-I-G cyber *kiss* on your lovely nose from Sherri-Ellen…

    • Hey Nylablue, Jet here. Hi Miss Sherri-Ellen,

      Oh gosh, Miss Sherri-Ellen, I’m blushing big time from your cyber kiss. Thanks a bunch.

      We’ve been blogging about 14 months and cannot believe the pals we’ve made. This community has so much kindness and caring you will be blown away… get ready, lots of the good stuff headed your way. 🙂

  12. Hi Jet and Jet’s Mom,

    I wanted to thank you for stopping by Suka’s blog to write such kind and touching words of sympathy about Suka’s passing. It means a lot to me. And it also helps me in my grieving to know that others care and understand.

    Suka really enjoyed Jet and all the fascinating and fun stories of life in Jet’s world. Jet was a good blogging friend to Suka, and I thank you both for your friendship to Suka, and to me.



    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss K.

      You are most welcome. Please know that you can reach out to us (and Mom in email form if you feel comfortable) anytime you need a little lift. We have learned in our short time in blogville how caring and supportive everyone is. We found that it made an incredible difference with us as well when Fluffy and Puffy crossed *OTRB* in August and last week.

      Knowing that our stories made a difference to you means more than we can express. Anytime, Miss K, anytime.

      Sending endless Jetty kisses, JJ hugs and Hugs from Mom.

    • Hey Kol, Hey Felix, Jet here. Hi Miss Jodi.

      We LOVE the hop so much, we’ve been recommending it quite a lot lately to others! Mom had a dehydrator passed down to her a few years back and the silly lady gave it to her friend. She never thought of making K9 treats… hmpf!

  13. Hey Jet! It’s the NewfandHound crew! Looks like it was a chicken jerky Tuesday for the both of us and my guys could have snarfed that package down in a heart beat if I would have let them. I love that you could get your picture on the front of the package, great idea!
