In the Great Pandemic of 2020, we were locked up at home with a rambunctious 4 month old puppy, Sherlock and 1.5 year old labrador, Ares. Our dogs eat natural whole foods, and their dinner bowls are straight-forward and nutritious, and we strive for them to lead long, healthy lives. We wanted their treats to be natural and healthy as well. So, we decided to make them ourselves.
We try to avoid eating processed food in our human diet, and we adopted the same approach for our dogs. We chose to avoid feeding commercial treats with fillers, preservatives and colouring. We wanted their treats to be simple, nutritious and delicious, so we opted for premium quality human-grade meats and ingredients to make our treats.
Our dogs don’t eat better than us, they eat as well as we do!
We dehydrate meats on low temperatures for long hours to allow raw meats to be portable, and to preserve the nutritional benefits of the meats. We bake biscuits on low temperatures with minimal ingredients, and we intentionally keep them wheat, egg and dairy-free so all pups can enjoy a fun, crunchy treat.
We take a simple, honest, no-gimmick approach to dog treats, and strive for our treats to serve a purpose as well as be delicious. Treats are an incentive to get them to behave, a training reward to train them to be good dogs, or a meal supplement/topper for picky pups.
Our dogs eat the exact same treats your dogs do, which is why we are confident to give you our QDT Promise – “We will never feed your dog what we don’t already feed our own”
Produced in small batches from high quality ingredients
We produce our treats in small batches daily to ensure they are delivered to you in their freshest quality.
Dehydrating meats and chews is a long process, that we do not rush, in order to preserve nutrients in the meats. It takes hours (often days!) on low, gentle heat, to ensure that the products are properly made. Baked goods are baked fresh daily.
Our ingredients are locally sourced from reputable suppliers, and we opt for high quality lean meats – never off-cuts or discards. We produce all our treats in-house from start to finish, and no finished product is outsourced from third party suppliers. We know exactly what goes into the treats, and so do you, as there is nothing in there that isn’t already on the label.
Many dogs all over the country have enjoyed our treats, and we want your dog to enjoy them too.
Welcome to Quǎn Dog Treats.
