The Nooks - March 17, 2020
My business all started with my dog Blue.
Poor Blue became very allergic to many of the ingredients in his food. One of the main ones he was having problems with was corn, which is in pretty much everything these days. Although allergy pills helped with his symptoms, avoiding the ingredients which triggered his allergies was more difficult than it seemed. Shopping for Blue really opened up my eyes to the problematic ingredients in most dog food. I was buying treats for him one day, and realized that I didn’t recognize half of the ingredients in them! This was a real concern, and I knew something had to be done.
I decided to start a small local business creating all natural, one ingredient pet treats. We support our local vendors for our raw supplies, and pay it forward by supporting our Kingston Humane Society every year and giving them a portion of our liver treat sales. We are currently in 10+ stores (including the wonderful Nooks) and ever expanding.
My inspiration is to have a product that pet owners can confidently buy and feed to their babies without worrying about the ingredients. All of our suppliers local or Canadian, and we only choose what’s best for your dogs. Our three dogs at home approve everything!
