We developed the recipes we use with Bramble in mind. She is at the heart of our family and we would never give her anything that could harm her. She has personally taste tested all of our products.
All chocolate referred to in the product pages is Doggy chocolate. [Real human chocolate is extremely toxic to dogs and can be fatal.]
Dogs love peanut butter. It’s a good source of protein, but it also contains heart healthy fats, vitamin B, niacin, and vitamin E. We only use peanut butter that does NOT contain xylitol, as this is another substance found in human food that is toxic to dogs. [It is commonly found in peanut butter and chewing gum, so please be careful if your pooch likes to eat things they find in the street.]
All of our cakes contain a high proportion of carrots. Carrots are low calorie and high in fibre and beta carotene (vitamin A).
We use wholegrain flour.
We use organic coconut oil in many of our products, including our cakes and sweets. Studies have indicated that coconut oil can improve nutrient absorption, help counteract digestive disorders and reduce overall inflammation in the body.
A natural anti-inflammatory. Although cinnamon is reputed to have a number of health benefits for dogs (including regulating blood sugar, reducing the effects of arthritis), we do not believe that we add it in sufficient quantities for it to have an impact. Many studies say it is required daily and our products should be occasional treat.
Most dogs are lactose intolerant and so we do not use cows milk. We chose oat milk of the dairy-free alternatives because soy is one of the top food allergens for dogs
Inulins are a group of naturally occurring polysaccharides produced by many types of plants; they are dietary fibres that are classified and known as fructans. Inulin is a low calorie carbohydrate and fibre source with less calories than sugar or fat. Inulin can increase calcium absorption and can be characterized as a prebiotic, which is a substance that feeds the healthy bacteria in the body’s intestinal system.
Apples are a good source of fibre as well as vitamin A and C.
Some of biscuits contain pumpkin. This is a good source of fibre as well as beta-carotene (vitamin A).
A great source of soluble fibre, which can be especially beneficial to senior dogs with bowel irregularity issues. It is also a great alternate grain for dogs allergic to wheat.

Things you will not find in our products:
We do not add sugar into any of the recipes. Dogs do not need sugar in their diet. Some of the products will have a sugar content because they contain fruit, which naturally contains sugar.
Preservatives, Baking Powder etc
Whilst it will not harm dogs as such, it will not benefit them, so we do not add it. You will notice that the cakes are not tall, light and fluffy as you would expect a human cake to be. This is because we don’t add any baking powder or baking soda, so they don’t rise. It doesn’t affect the taste, just our human view of what things should look like. Dogs don’t need these things in their diet, so we do not add them.
