HEALTHY IS THE NEW BLACK

Our world is becoming more health conscious, and more allergic, to the foods we consume. So why should we care only about what we eat, and not about our beloved dogs? At Pooch & Bones, creating high quality and highly nutritional treats are our main priorities.

We began our journey using a wheat flour base, until extensive research led us to understand that dogs can also become allergic to the gluten in ingredients. We made a conscious effort to switch over all of our products to a brown rice and oat flour base - which then allowed us to create hypoallergenic treats. While that worked for a while, we began having issues with the flour blend being too time consuming, the expense in the flours began to rise, and a high moisture intake.

HEALTHY IS THE NEW BLACK

Our world is becoming more health conscious, and more allergic, to the foods we consume. So why should we care only about what we eat, and not about our beloved dogs? At Pooch & Bones, creating high quality and highly nutritional treats are our main priorities.

We began our journey using a wheat flour base, until extensive research led us to understand that dogs can also become allergic to the gluten in ingredients. We made a conscious effort to switch over all of our products to a brown rice and oat flour base - which then allowed us to create hypoallergenic treats. While that worked for a while, we began having issues with the flour blend being too time consuming, the expense in the flours began to rise, and a high moisture intake. Once this came to light, we decided to take a break from baking, and do way more research to understand how to best create and preserve our treats.

During this time, our human lives also changed for the better: we gave Bo a little sister (Emma, Catahoula pup), expanded our knowledge of foods with an emphasis on high protein and fiber, and sought after moisture removal methods. What we discovered was that by using a bean flour base we could give your canine friends a high quality, protein & fiber-packed dog treat. We'd like to call this a win-win situation!

Now you will receive treats that are lower on the glycemic index and assist in blood sugar regulation, help relieve constipation due to higher fiber, and offers many vitamins and minerals (such as vitamins A, B, C, iron, etc). These treats are suitable for dogs with diabetes and weight management needs.

As always, we would love to hear from you if you have requests for custom flavors, order size, or just want to say “Hello!”
