hjkIf you are looking for a dog treat brand that you can feel good about feeding your dog, then look no further. The best dog treats are made right here in Canada. Your dog will love the taste, and you'll know that the ingredients are sourced from trusted Canadian farmers, fishermen, and abundant natural resources.
Too many pet food companies offer cheap (and cheaply made) dog treats, packing them full of artificial flavours and preservatives, along with ingredients that are not good for your pet’s digestive system. We like to think these folks aren’t pet owners. The good news is, you don’t have to buy these terrible ‘treats’ for your pup.
