Palette’s note: Dehydrated Chicken feet

  When you pick up treats for your dogs, what would you look at? Ingredients? Fancy looking pictures? Description of the products?

Have you ever wondered if you could actually see how other dogs are enjoying them? Not pictures,but in video so that you can actually HEAR and feel the treats’ textures?

Some of you may have already recognized I have been putting up treats’ video on youtube so that people can hear the sound, see Palette in action and get more detail on each product.

With “Palette’s Note” series,I would like to put taste test videos.

 This time, “Dehydrated Chicken feet“.

th Dehydrated chicken feet

 These dehydrated chicken feet are made in USA, from US sourced Chicken.

Each dehydrated chicken feet is about 3″ to  4″ in length, and 10 oz resealable bag comes with approx 20 feet to make the bag weigh 10 oz weight.

Dehydrating process removes moisture out from feet, and it makes dehydrated feet treats crumble rather than splinter sharp like when dogs chew cooked bone.

 Note: Cooked bones are dangerous, and you should never feed cooked bones.They will break sharp. Also, if dogs eats them, it seems, from my experience with cooked ham bones I gave before I switched our k9 executive chef “Palette” diet  to raw diet, to make the poop very very hard like cement in the

 When she had the cooked ham bones,she pooped golf ball sized rock hard poop so often and it eventually turned to diarrhea that lasted for a few days.Never again,I feed cooked bones to Palette.

Note: Raw bones are soft and great teeth cleaner.However, bones such as knuckle bones,femur
bones,marrow bones from big animals such as cow,buffalo are called weight bearing bones,
and they are teeth wearer,teeth breaker and even though they are sold with very reasonable price, they are not good kind of bones to give to your dogs.

 If you browse through our store, you would notice that we never offer pet bones (dog bones) at all. This is the reason why we do not offer cooked dog bones.

 Since I do not think dog bones are good for dogs’ teeth, we do not offer them at Yassy’s Gourmet Dog Kitchen.

To satisfy her gnawing urge, only thing I give to her to chew on is Deer Antlers,which lasted more than a year for our stubby little dog. It lasts lot longer than bully sticks no matter how thick,how long they are, and Antlers are more economical chew in the long run.

Palette used to limp before and,now she is limp free and runs like wind.

 However, because of her history of limping, I make sure that she will get food/treats that are great natural source of Glucosamine, Chondroitin such as gullet, poultry feet, cartilage, and trachea in her main diet.

 Now and then, I give her dehydrated poultry feet such as dehydrated chicken feet treats as well.

I know there are Jerky treats targeted for joint health with added glucosamine and chondroitin,
and now, you can even get a bully stick coated with them.

Are they really beneficial to your dogs?

 Personally, I would rather prefer to give Palette Glucosamine / Chondroitin through food/treats known as natural source of glucosamine/chondroitin rather than fortified treats with non natural source of glucosamine /chondroitin.

 I just feel that, food/treats that are known to be good source of natural source of glucosamine/chondroitin will be better than “fortified food/treats with XYZ”.

 If your dogs have joint problems, raw/dehydrated gullet,trachea,poultry feet and Cartilage are good things to feed.

 Those are also great source of natural glucosamin/chondroitin. You can find wide variety of what I call it “Natural treats with benefit” at Yassy’s Gourmet Dog Kitchen also.

 We have following natural treats with benefit (for joint health). If you are looking for treats that are good source of natural glucosamnine/chondroitin,then, below is the great list of treats you can choose from.

 Palette loves dehydrated chicken feet. She gives me whining, she gives me big gator jump if I show it to her. It puts a huge Corgi smile on her.

 She gets very excited and her nose get wet instantly. This is small nice crunchy snack for dogs.

When I open up the dehydrated chicken feet bag, I find Palette trotting all the way from upstairs to downstairs,and eyes on the prize (dehydrated chicken feet) and being at “down” position, hoping to get the prize with good manner like this.

 Sometimes, she gets impatient, and gives me big woof.

Palette and Dehydrated chicken feet Part II

 Can you hear the sound of crispiness? Can you see how much she got excited for this treats and, her nose get wet in a second?

 I taught her the new cue “What do you want?”.

 When I say that, she is trained to bring her small container to me so I can put her treats inside the container.

 I originally wanted to teach her with her own dish, but her dish is ceramic bowl and she cannot carry it like she would with plastic container.Therefore, I decided to use the plastic empty container as her treats bowl.

 It is so cute to see her chasing the container to go grab it. Since she is very excited, she tends to toss it to me

 I am having so much fun teaching new tricks to her.

 Anyway, for some, this treats sounds like “Eww” treats,but dogs love them (and good for them)! This is one of popular dog snacks at our store.

 Have you tried dehydrated chicken feet yet?

 Palette and many others would highly recommend this treats
