Our Editors’ Best-Kept Secret for Spoiling Their Pups Without Breaking the Bank

There are plenty of non-work-related messages that dominate our Slack channel on any given day. From Harry’s latest album release (and our definitive song rankings) to new Trader Joe’s finds to our last greatest read and beyond, we always have something to say. But one thing I didn’t have on my 2022 Bingo card? Our editors going absolutely feral over nutrient-rich dog food and treats from Jinx.

We have a lot of dog moms on our team, so an occasional puppy selfie wouldn’t be out of the ordinary. But to see the discourse between our editors who gave Jinx, a brand that offers Kibble, Toppers, Treats, and Dental Chews made with all-natural ingredients, to their pups was honestly comical. Our fashion editor’s dog, Max, was reported to get more excited for dinnertime than ever before, and our graphic designer’s pup, Scout, was pulling out all of the stops in the form of her go-to tricks in an effort to finesse more of her Jinx treats.

And besides the fact that our dogs are going wild for them, our editors love that Jinx gives the gift of peace of mind. Jinx offers complete nutrition designed to help your dog thrive and ensures your dog gets the right nutrients in the right proportions for a healthy lifestyle. With $10 off of your first a-la-carte order with code EVERYGIRL, premium ingredients including lean proteins like organic chicken and real salmon, 20+ superfoods, and a patented probiotic that stays protected throughout the cooking process to maintain efficacy, this expertly crafted, vet-approved option is coveted by our Everypups and their owners alike. Read on for our full review:

 

Before Jinx, I was the kind of dog mom who added vegetables and vitamins to my dogs’ kibble, which became quite expensive and time consuming. Roxy, my senior pup, has become a very picky eater lately, and my other dog Hendrix has sensitive skin and allergies. Adding Jinx kibble to their routine really knocked out three birds with one stone since it is nutritious with all-natural ingredients, got my senior dog excited about eating again, and is helping both of my dogs have healthier skin.

Hendrix and Roxy were hooked on Jinx from the moment I unboxed it—I have to make sure the bag is behind closed doors at night so they don’t help themselves. Since switching to Jinx kibble, I don’t have to beg Roxy to eat her food (and I am so happy that she is getting nutritious ingredients that will keep her healthy as she gets older). Hendrix literally drools while waiting for his breakfast, and his coat is already softer. They are also loving the jerky treats as a bonus snack when they’re being extra good dogs. I’d say they give Jinx a 10/10.

Scout is a miniature dachshund, and to our surprise, she has proven to be as picky as can be. Most doxie pups are notorious for loving food, but that’s not the case with Scout. She often turns her nose up at dog treats and is known to refuse to eat for days until she gets fresh chicken or rice. High maintenance, I know. So when I got these jerky treats in the mail, I was hesitant because of her pickiness but hopeful to try them out due to the reviews online. The second I opened the first bag, she started sniffing the air and even trotted curiously over to where I was standing. When I gave her the first treat, she absolutely demolished it and started jumping up at the bag for more. We proceeded to have a super fun training session with the jerky treats.

Jerky Variety Pack

With three bags of all-natural, slow-smoked chicken and beef jerky treats (one bag of chicken tenders, one bag of chicken bites, and one bag of beef tenders), your pup is sure to find one (or more) that they’ll fall head over paws for.

When Scout was a puppy, we mistakenly let her sleep on the bed one time after successfully crate training her, and we have never been able to get her back in the crate. That being said, finding a high-quality treat she loves was the first step we knew we needed to take to try and retrain her back into her crate. We have now done four rounds of training into “bed,” and even though she isn’t sleeping in her crate just yet, she certainly is loving her new training time with her delicious jerky.

My rescue pup Ollie has a few health issues, mainly itchy skin (fairly common for small white dogs I’m told) and frequent ear infections. We’ve been trying different food and treats to help with these issues (in addition to vet-prescribed medication). I love the Jinx Salmon & Sweet Potato kibble for him since it’s made with real salmon and superfoods that support skin heath (he seriously needs every bit of help he can get in that department).

Aside from the health benefits, I’m just happy to see him enjoying his food! He runs to it and is excited for it every time. And lastly, I’m here for the subscription service. I love my dog so much but I’ll admit that sometimes I don’t realize he is out of food or treats until the very last minute. I love that I can sign up for the subscription and it can be one less thing I need to think about.

My sweet little Max is an angel, but I’d be lying if I said he didn’t have some quirks (which, honestly, what 100-something-year-old doesn’t?). He’s always been a has-dog-food-out-all-day guy; rather than slamming all of his food as soon as I put it out, he just kind of snacks all day. But in his old age, I’ve started tracking how much he’s eating more to make sure he’s eating enough (and because he’s not opposed to a hunger strike now and again), so I’ve resorted to sprinkling a little shredded cheese on top of his food, which makes him eat it right away every time. Obviously, shredded cheese isn’t giving Max very much nutritionally, but I never knew what else would entice him to chow down on his food consistently. I had never heard of a food topper, but it’s exactly what I’ve always needed for him.

Freeze-Dried Chicken Topper

Enhance meal time with this Chicken On Top Topper. This all-natural, savory recipe featuring cage-free chicken is freeze-dried for optimal flavor, giving even the pickiest pup an irresistible flavor-meets-protein boost that makes every meal the best they’ve ever had.

It only contains chicken, which means it’s much healthier for him than sharp cheddar, and he absolutely goes insane for it. Since it’s so fine, it falls between his kibble and makes him eat about half a bowl every time—but not without breaks between bites where he sprints around in pure joy between. Max is picky and I can tell when he likes something, and he absolutely adores this—it’s helped pick up his eating without adding anything unhealthy for him. The best part? He has a sensitive little-old-man tummy, so I’m hesitant to ever introduce new foods into his diet, and this hasn’t caused any upset whatsoever. If you asked Max, this is the best thing that’s happened to him in 2022.

As a wellness editor and health coach, I fill my diet with nutrients that make me feel energized, happy, and healthy. But if you think I’m obsessive about what I put in my body, you should see the way I feed my dog. My French bulldog Louie (or King Louie, as is his well-deserved nickname), has a raw food diet, keeps up with a detailed supplement routine, and gets cucumber, berries, spinach, eggs, and other dog-friendly whole foods every day (he knows that when mom’s cooking, he also gets to eat). It’s tricky to find dog treats that are as healthy as they are delicious, which is why I get all my treats from Jinx.

Louie is obsessed with the Salmon & Pumpkin Jerky Treats, and I love that I can feel really good about giving them to him because they’re full of antioxidants, omega-3s, and other ingredients that are good for his health. My opinion is why would we feed our best friends food we wouldn’t eat ourselves? While I’m not exactly going to treat myself to the jerky, I love that Jinx’s products are full of healthy ingredients we would feed ourselves (like salmon, pumpkin, and veggies) instead of added chemicals or processed protein like other treats. The best part is that the jerky has been the key to training Louie (so far, we’re just at “sit,” but he mastered it!) because Louie loves them more than other treats we’ve tried. In other words: Jinx is a major win for both of us.

Otis has brought nothing but immense joy, laughter, and complete and utter insanity to my life. When he’s not digging through the compost bin, dragging my newly cleaned laundry into the backyard, or terrorizing Poncho and Olive, he’s truly the best, most loving dog. But anyone who’s ever had a dog knows that during the puppy stage, consistent training is essential. As cute and hilarious as it is to see Otis running around with my sports bra, this is behavior that simply cannot continue. The best training tool in my arsenal (other than the dog trainer I have on speed dial) are high-value treats that Otis won’t get bored with.

Chicken Jerky Bites

If you’re looking to train your pup, look no further than these Chicken Jerky Bites. These snack-able jerky cubes are perfect for training, protein-packed, and crafted to satisfy even the pickiest pups.

Prior to Jinx, I would frequently use kibble during training and, to make sure he wasn’t overeating, I’d reduce the amount of food he got at meal time. I feed my dogs a healthy kibble that’s perfect for their dietary needs and am always cautious about adding anything new into the mix (I’ve had one-too-many midnight puking incidents to take any chances). However, with the chicken jerky bites from Jinx, I don’t have to worry. Instead, I get a nutritious, high-value treat Otis (and even Poncho and Olive, who are always very interested in learning how to sit again when they see the treat bag come out) is interested in no matter what distractions are present. Training with kibble is still a great method when it comes to low-stakes situations, but as he progresses toward more advanced commands, I need to make sure I have his full attention. He loves these treats so much that I never have to worry.
