Gourmet dog treats from scratch
The idea to create natural dog treats really happened by accident. When we added Roxy and Charlie to our family there weren’t many treats available that met our standards. And I place the same food standards on our dogs as the rest of our family.
We started baking our own dog treats from ingredients including peanut butter, sweet potato and chicken. We experimented with many different treats and ingredients. Brownies, cakes and a variety of different dog cookies made the process fun. We also decided to eliminate popular dog allergens including corn, soy and gluten grains including wheat.
A dog treat business in the making
After perfecting our recipes, we shared our natural dog treats with family and friends. We built a website and started selling a limited quantity online. Our gourmet treats began getting positive reviews and were contacted by retailers interested in our products. That’s when Distinctive Dog was born.
We soon moved from our home kitchen into a commercial baking facility. We still source healthy, natural ingredients and bake our dog treats by hand. Only now the same natural treats we shared with family and friends are available to everyone.
Passion for a cause
We are passionate about dogs and the health and well-being of dogs everywhere. That’s why we decided to donate a portion of our profits to help dogs in need. So our customers can feel good that they are feeding their dogs the highest quality gourmet dog treats and helping with our cause. As we work closer with these non-profit organizations we hope to share these stories with you.
Customers are the core of our business and we welcome your feedback either directly or on our blog. I hope your dogs enjoy Distinctive Dog treats as much as our dogs.
