We grew up in the country and can't remember a time when we didn't have a dog. We had Labs growing up but came to love all dogs through the close bonds we made with our own dogs. We reached an age where we realized that eating healthy helps both us and our dogs live a long, happy life. We thought that if we could bake our own dog treats we could use only the most healthy ingredients. Well, as we began to learn about dog health and that different types of protein should be rotated, we realized that biscuits were mostly made around filler grains and flavoring. Some dog treat companies even used spent brewer's rice which is the rice after it is used in the brewing process.
So we decided to read up on what the healthiest treats would be for a dog to eat. We decided on human grade, slow baked from raw because this method keeps most of the nutritional value of raw while killing any harmful bacteria. We began searching for the best dehydrators so we could start to make our dog treats. As it turns out, there is a lot to making premium quality dog treats and we realized that we needed to find a company who would make our treats for us and keep the quality at a very high standard. As we researched the standards in Canada we found that there are no regulations for pet treat manufacturing. This wasn't cool with us so we read more to understand how to make the best quality of treats for our dog.
We found a facility that is Global Food Safe Initiative SQF certified level 3. This means that this company is certified according to the World Wide Global standards and scrutiny for safety and quality. This is not required in Canada to make dog treats but it is required if we are going to give this to our dog. Once we found them we knew they had to become part of our team.
So we are two Canadian country boys with a love for the health of our dog and ambition to make our mark in the world. Our company "The Old Dawg Treat Co." was named after our Dad who has given us a lot of guidance. Thanks Dad we love you! He doesn't think he's old! We are excited and proud to offer our first six dog treats that are designed to be rotated so that your fur ball gets a variety of nutrition. We are already working on our human grade, slow baked doggie training treats so keep an eye open for them. Thank you for stopping by and we know your dog will LOVE our treats!
