Behind Canine ConfectionsWhat made you decide to start this whole organic thing with your bakery in San Francisco?
It really started when one of our dogs was diagnosed with diabetes. We wanted the best for her and felt like we weren't getting it through normal channels. We started researching online and reading " The complete guide to natural health for dogs and cats" by Dr. Richard Pitcairn - something we should have done many years ago.
Now on to your biscuits and treats, organics are great, but aren't they are a bit pricey? Why would I buy this stuff for just a dog?
Same reason why you would buy it for yourself. You don't have to worry about feeding your dogs 'who-knows-what' from 'who-knows-where'. Is it going overboard? Nah, it's just getting back to organic foods made naturally. All this reduces your risk of disease and problems later on. You will save on vet bills which far outweighs the price of organic dog biscuits
What makes your biscuits so good that I can't just get from Milkbone or something branded like Newman's Own?
Quality Control. We personally control everything. We're not saying there is not QC at those big companies, but when something is mass produced, I'm always a little suspect. We wouldn't put out anything that we wouldn't eat ourselves. Honestly!
You claim that you don't add this or that, well what's wrong with wheat and corn?
Wheat, Corn and Soy are the most common sources of food allergies in dogs. If given the choice, dogs will most likely eat treats with those ingredients and suffer itching or not feeling well afterwards. We are doing our part to make all dogs happier and healthier with our organic treats and biscuits.
As for the claim, we not only claim, but we "know" that the biscuits are soy free, wheat free, corn free and chemical free.
If this stuff is so good, why doesn't everyone sell or make it?
Because it's hard. We hand mix, hand cut, hand decorate and customize. We develop the absolute best tasting dog biscuits and we have fun doing it.
Why can't I just grab a recipe from the internet and start baking and save myself the money?
You most certainly can.We love to create what we think are unique treats for our canine friends. Not only are they healthy, but they add a little 'Fun" to getting rewarded. Our new Scrabblicious treats are not only yummy for the dogs, but entertaining for the humans as well.
