Being an Australian small business, we love to support local where we can.
All of our meat and seafood are sourced and processed in Australia.
*If something is ever not Australian made, it will be explicitly stated and is up to buyer discretion. I.e NZ Green-lipped Mussels
We are very transparent about what goes into our treats, all of our ingredients can be found in the product information of the treat selected, as well as on the treat bag you receive. However, all of our Dehydrated range and Freeze-dried raw range is single product protein.. meaning what you see is what you get! 1 ingredient
None of our treats contain any additives, fillers or preservatives.
We always recommend supervising and monitoring your pet while they’re consuming a treat or chew & ensuring that you have picked a treat that is size appropriate and appropriate for the chewing style of your dog.
Dogs and Cats have jaws and a teeth structure that is different to humans, as they cannot move their jaw side to side to "chew" they can only move their jaw up and down to grind their food.
Each dog will have its own chew/grind style, it's not a one size fits all approach, Dogs will have chew styles that vary between aggressive chewers/golpers who are desperate to finish the treat/chew as fast as they can to dogs who are methodical and like to take there time.
Dogs and cats will naturally swallow food/treats/bones that are just small enough to pass through their esophagus, if they cannot swallow it whole, they will regurgitate it up and grind it again to make it small enough to swallow. This can be quite distressing for humans to see as we think our dog is choking, so we strongly suggest you supervise your dog and make sure the treats you are giving them are size appropriate for your dog's own chew style.
Chewing is a great stress reliever for your dog! so let them find a quiet spot to alleviate some anxiety and give their teeth a good clean.
Unfortunately, just like us when we eat too many snacks, our dogs can feel sick from eating too many treats.
Many of our treats can be used for training and boredom busting, but it is important to be aware not to overfeed. There is no clear cut rule about how much or how little to feed, judge it by how your dog is acting and how their bowel movements are.
E.g. overfeeding liver/offal based treats can cause dogs to have very loose stools (it’s also why we have created our Beef Snappies Chicken Jerky and Whitebait for training purposes to avoid this).
Liver is a great source of protein and a range of various vitamins and minerals. The vitamins and minerals are often in very concentrated amounts and shouldn’t exceed more than 10% of your dog's daily diet. The same thing goes for any offal treat like Heart, Lungs, Spleen, and Kidney. While these treats are more cost-effective, they should be fed in small doses.
Overfeeding liver can be very dangerous for dogs (and cats), click here to find out more on toxicity concerns when feeding liver.
There is a bunch of reasons you might want to feed low-fat treats. Maybe you’ve got a new puppy or rescue and you’re doing a lot of reward-based training; maybe your dog had pancreatitis and needs to watch their fat intake, or maybe they’ve gone a bit hard on the treats and need to lose a few pounds.
We stock a variety of low-fat options for your dogs; you can utilise the search function by typing ‘low fat’ to view the range of treats we have available to suit your dog.

While we love using a variety of treats for training, a staple for most of our customers is our Beef Snappies. They’re made from 100% Australian beef and come ready for you to snap off into small bite-size pieces; suitable for any sized dog.
For seniors, we recommend softer treats or breaking treats up into smaller pieces for those who struggle to chew and break down treats. Provided there are no known allergies or intolerances our Freeze-Dried Raw range is perfect (and a crowd favourite).
*We recommend supervising your puppy/senior at all times when consuming treats or chews.
Another great trick is to rehydrate the freeze-dried or dehydrated treats in some warm water for a few minutes, this will reconstitute them back to their natural raw state, and make them a little softer and more pliable to eat.
As our ethos stands, we like to use as much of the animal as possible and minimise our wastage with our ‘nose to tail’ approach.
Fur is packed full of benefits and nutrients.
Some benefits are:
Rich in fibre (helps clear out the gut and can provide some relief for dogs with anal gland issues) Source of manganese Dental health benefits
You can read more about feeding fur on our blog here and shop our furry range here
The second best thing, aside from the treats themselves, is that they are all dehydrated or freeze-dried to enable them to have the longest shelf life they can. Moisture is the enemy here, so if you live in a hot or humid area, make sure you keep your treats in a cool dry place.
Most of our treats have a shelf life of up to 2-3 years (if they’re kept in an airtight container or their original packaging) if they were to ever last that long ;)
