Every dog is different just as every person is unique in their needs. Activity level, sensitivities, are just a few of the considerations that one must consider for their diet. Please contact us and we’ll do our best to help you find the correct fit. Consult your vetterinarian with any questions as well. We’re here to help! So please contact us here (insert hyperlink).
How much should I feed my dog?
On each bag we have feeding guidelines, but remember, they are just a starting point. Many things can influence proper food intake: Age, sex, breed, temperament, temperature, and exercise, hence why it’s only a starting point. Feed the amount that achieves the body condition you consider ideal. Many consider a dog with a visible waist from above, ribs that are not evident, but can be easily felt underneath the coat.
Pregnant dogs should be fed at least 1/3 more than normal and lactating dogs twice the normal level for the nursing period. Weaning puppies should be fed four times a day to four months.
Do you believe in free feeding dogs?
No. Our diets are higher in protein and fat, making them denser in calories and nutrition. Because of this you will need to feed as much as you may of other diets.
Is it okay to switch formulas?
Yes! Our diets are made to be switch routinely to help promote a healthier GI, keeping your dog from being picky, and also getting the most out of benefits from multiple protein sources.
Switching between flavors in a line is easier than switching between our lines of food. Otherwise us the six day play. Days 1 and 2 do a split of 75% old food, 25% new. Days 3 and 4, a 50%/50% split of food, and days 5 and 6, 75% new food, and 25% old. This should help with any digestive switches. Also, if you have a sensitive dog, plan accordingly and prepare to go longer.
Do you supplement Taurine in all your diets?
Yes! We supplement Taurine and dl methionine. Taurine supports heart function, eye health, immune system function, muscle tissue and also aids multiple other systems as well.
Are all bones created equal?
No, we’re afraid not, many factors go into the production of bones. We specifically use cattle 18 months or younger so the bones at their densest. Moisture is also incredibly important to monitor during the process as well.
Do you recommend recommend supervising a dog while they chew?
Always monitor your dog while they chew. If the dog chews too quickly, it isn’t the right chew for the dog. Bones should be slowly gnawed down and not meant to be ingested. The natural benefits of the grease and marrow can support a healthy skin and coat.
Are some bones harder than others?
Pork and lamb bones are softer and are perfect for light chewers. Beef bones are more dense making them perfect for heavier chewers.
How do you pick a bone size?
If the bone is small enough to fit in the dog’s mouth, it is too small for the dog. Check each label for recommended dog sizes for each bone.
What do I do if I get pieces or slivers off the bone?
Bones are meant to be gnawed. If the dog is above to break off large chunks or slivers, the bone should be taken away.
Where are your bones made and where do they come from?
They are both grown and processed in the USA.

Yak milk is first collected by a group of farms. The yak milk is boiled with cintinuous stirring with a wooded paddle called a “Kelu”. During the stirring process is when the lime juice is added. After 45 minutes of continous stirring the whte cheese starts forming which is seperated with a large bamboo sleeve called a “cherang”. The fresh soft cheese is spread onto a piece of cotton cloth that is tied and pressed firmly to drain all the excess water. From there the cheese is cut into pieces and then smoked for 30 to 45 days using a wood oven for hardening. This is the process that gives you a hard treat with a smokey flavor your dog will love!
