What Do We Think Of Jinx?

Jinx hit the market in May 2020 and has yet to make a big enough splash for us to find customer reviews online. But two of our team members use Jinx. Here are their first-hand experiences:

Jinx Salmon Dog Food as a topper
Jinx Dog Food as a topper on fresh dog food

We have been giving our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel fresh food for years but recently started adding Jinx to the mix as a topper. Chewing the kibble helps keep the wet food from sticking to his teeth and gives some crunch to help slow him down from gobbling it too fast. I ordered a bag on Friday, and it shipped the same day and arrived within two days. We use the Salmon flavored recipe to add some grains to his diet, and he loves it!  – Sadie C., Canine Journal

I typically feed my pup commercial kibble. Usually, when I put it in his bowl, he sniffs it and moves on until he gets super hungry. Let’s just say his usual kibble isn’t a big hit. But when I put Jinx’s kibble in his bowl, he sniffed it for a good second and gobbled it up right away. He loved it! Kibble can be easier to give your dogs than fresh meals, but I always worried about the quality of his dried nuggets. But I felt more confident that my dog was getting a better meal with Jinx. – Sally J., Canine Journal
