Why are we in business?
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion” – Unknown dog lover.
We are unapologetic dog lovers. We wanted to be “worthy” of the unconditional love our 3 Boxers showed us each and every day by giving them three of the most important things they need. Lots of exercise? Check. Shower them with love and affection? Check. Finding and feeding them the best possible food? … Well, this proved more of a challenge.
Tracking down the right dog food was a difficult task. We scrutinized manufacturers, studied ingredients and selected what we thought were the best possible “premium” brands to give our dogs. Unfortunately, none of the dozen or so we tried were tolerated well by our boxers. Jackson, our first, was particularly unhappy with his food and developed allergies to almost all of the “filler” ingredients commonly found in dog food.
Try as we might, we could not find a food that met our families (admittedly high) standards – one that had high quality ingredients, was easily digested, contained no grains, chemical preservatives and no fillers.
And then it dawned on us. Maybe we should only feed our dogs food we would eat ourselves. Using a diet of raw dog food and home made treats – to supplement their vitamins and nutrients – we slowly, but surely, noticed a marked inmprovement in our dogs general well being. They were more alert, more energetic, less “stressed”, and their coats became soft and silky!
Obviously, we were very excited about this. If our dogs are happy, we are happy! We were so impressed with the results of his new “home made” diet, we shared our experience with our friends and family, and as more and more people tried them and loved them it became harder for us to make enough for the demand. We thought that perhaps we were doing something meaningful and our dogs agreed! So, we made the decision to make our unique “home made” treats available to everyone and anyone who shares our devotion to dogs.
The result? After many many recipes and reworks, hundreds of hours of testing, securing a location for our kitchen and finally getting together all the required equipment, our first “Original Recipe” was baked and packaged for distribution in April of 2012.
