Our Ingredients and Why
It’s important that you know what goes into your pets food! Here we outline our ingredients and all their benefits.

Coconut flour and Chickpea flour

Our dogs just LOVE peanut butter! Sometimes we put it in a Kong and they spend so much time licking the Kong clean! Why do so many dogs like peanut butter? Articles have documented it may be the fat, salt or sugars in it. Peanut butter is a good source of protein and is high in fibre. When we bake with peanut butter we ensure it is either homemade using real peanuts, or if that is not available, we would use a brand that has low salt and sugar, no hydrogenated oils and definitely no XYLITOL which can make our puppies unwell.
Oats are a great wonder food. They are low in fat, a great source of insoluble fibre and keep blood sugar levels steady. They are known to aid in weight loss, kidney disease, diabetes, cholesterol, heart disease, decrease the risk of some cancers and increase the immune system.

Our dogs love to drink it on it's own and is great when given frozen on a hot day. They just love the flavour. We make our own chicken stock to ensure there is absolutely NO salt.
Coconut contains the fatty acid lauric acid which boosts the immune system, improves digestion and thyroid function and contributes to a healthy and shiny coat. It also has protein, iron and is low carb.
Organic coconut oil
