When TJ’s Dog Treats introduced our treats in 2015, we wanted to create the best all natural and organic treats in the universe! I had recently adopted Tucker and I wanted to feed him only the best treats…so I made them! I started with four of his favorite flavors; sweet potatoes, peanut butter, cheese and bacon. We use the highest-quality human grade ingredients sourced in the USA. No preservatives or artificial ingredients in our biscuits - TJ’s Dog Treats are made to be simple, wholesome and delicious. You can read and pronounce every ingredient on the label and be assured you are feeding your premium pet a premium treat.
We grate organic carrots, puree freshly cooked organic sweet potatoes and puree fresh bananas. We use only organic peanut butter, natural applewood smoked bacon and the best natural, aged sharp cheddar cheese made with vegetable rennet.
After it seemed that Tucker was having trouble tolerating wheat, I developed a naturally gluten-free flour blend free of wheat, corn or soy. Using garbanzo bean and brown rice flours that are certified gluten free, we also add oat flours and rice that are naturally gluten-free grains. Together with the fruits, vegetables, nuts, cheese and bacon, TJ’s Dog Treats were developed to be high and protein, low in calories and full of good natural and organic nutrition for your pampered pet. Vegan dog lovers also have two varieties from which to choose; Sweet Potato · Carrots · Mint and Peanut Butter · Banana.
When I retired from a 20 - year career as a professional fundraiser in 2014, I knew I wanted to do something with food. In my family, we show our love with food! If you love someone; cook and bake them tasty treats! My grandmother was an early adopter of healthy cooking and eating. My grandfather had open-heart surgery in the early 80’s and she wanted to feed him right. When I was a young woman, I was shopping at the local fresh market and literally smashed into my grandmother and her cart as I rounded the corner. After surveying the box of brownie mix in my cart, I was scolded for not making brownies from scratch. Grandma shamed into buying the necessary natural ingredients; fresh eggs, unbleached flour, bittersweet chocolate, real butter and sugar from which to make the most delicious brownies.
That lesson was not lost on me.
Cook from scratch, use the best ingredients, leave the processed food out and make the most delicious food for those you love. That’s what inspired me to create TJ’s Dog Treats.
Why should it be any different for my dog or yours? So treat your dog like you treat yourself, or even better!!! Give your canine family member the best natural and organic treats in the universe! TJ’s Dog Treats!
