Who we are
First and foremost we are dog lovers and generally speaking have a passion for animals and their well-being.
We are also artisan producers of all natural handmade dog treats.
We only use human grade, ethically sourced ingredients and we make our treats by hand in Devon. We do not add sugars, salts or dyes to any of our products. We never add chemicals or enhance the shelf life of any of our products by artificial means.
Our liver is free range (as are our eggs) and our herbs are non-irradiated and GMO free. We never use meat meal or any other animal or vegetable by products to bulk or fill our treats… ever!
Canine nutrition is at the heart of every thing we do thats why all of our treats have been developed and refined by canine nutritionalists to ensure they are the best they can be. So whether you raw feed, kibble feed or do a bit of both, you can rest assured you giving your furry family what we believe are the best treats on the market.
We hope you like them… we know your dogs will!
We started making dog treats about 4 years ago for our own motley crew…a Spanish Water dog, a Golden Retriever and a Golden Lab!! I remember very clearly what turned our minds to it in the first place, I was in the doggy aisle of my local supermarket about to buy a number (of what I thought were) yummy pup treats when a lady approached me. She related to me her unhappy tale about added sugar and salts in the particular treats I was about to purchase. It got me thinking, so off I went to my local pet store and then to my vet. Unfortunately, without spending an arm and a leg there was very little in the way of healthy or additive free treats.
The backdrop to this is my extremely handsome but often very stubborn Golden Retriever (on the front of the 'Run Free' and 'You Can Teach An Old Dog New Treats'). At the time he was 8 and entirely unmotivated by food and entirely deaf when recalled from a stream, river or bog. So my problem was clear as you cant teach an old dog new tricks, I needed to find a treat that was healthy but also yummy enough to motivate my big Golden Retriever when the walk was over and it was time to go home!
Finally after many failed attempts we hit upon the perfect recipe and they have been a hit with my dogs ever since…. But that was the just the beginning pretty soon I was making bags of treats for my fellow dog walkers and their four legged friends. The Eureka moment had arrived!
We now supply pet shops, whole food stores, pubs, vets, community stores and shops, garden centres, pubs and a whole host of other retailers and businesses.
If you wouldn’t eat it yourself, why would you giveit to your best friend?
Thankfully, nowadays you have a choice when it comes to feeding and treating your best friend. It wasn’t so long ago that the only option was to feed and treat your dog some unlabelled unidentifiable products (reformed in the shape of a bone or similar) of sub human grade quality. Generally, they were also packed full of salts, sugars, dyes, chemicals and other rubbish.
Fortunately, canine nutrition has moved on considerably in the last 15 years and so have the options for feeding and treating. We are a family run business. First and foremost we love our dogs and we aim to know about and promote, good nutrition. We also believe that we can and should feed them food and treats that are of human grade quality. That’s not to say that we fancy tucking into Rovers dinner every night. But, by the same token, why would we feed our best buddies any old rubbish, the by-products and left overs from other food based industries that aren’t fit for our own consumption?
Whether you’ve chosen our 'Barking up the Right Treats', 'Happy Box' or our 'Run Free' joint and bone care with devils claw pumpkin seed and free range eggshells; you can rest assured that your dog is getting a really healthy treat with no rubbish or junk hidden inside.
