We always wanted to know exactly which ingredients were used in the dog–foods we fed. But whatever we bought, there was always some aspect we did not like.
We were looking for a dog-food with a single protein, a functional variety of fruit and vegetables, an ideal combination of good oils and healthy grains as a source of minerals and energy. All of it in organic quality, because we believe in healthy nutrition and that we need to treat our environment well if we take from it.
Most of all, we wanted a food made with meat solely from animals who lived under ethically acceptable conditions and did not have to suffer during their lifetime.
Because ultimately, we carry the responsibility for all fellow creatures.
We wanted a dog food which was as good and as healthy as home-made food. With only the highest quality ingredients and all vitamins, minerals and trace elements which dogs need.
So eventually, we made it ourselves. Exactly the way we wanted.
We feel animal welfare does not stop at our own dogs. That is why we use only meat from farm animal welfare and housing, where the animals are being kept on large fields in family units and know meadow herbs as well as morning dew and sun, sand and wet grass.
Every single one of our recipes is created in collaboration with medical specialists for animal nutrition to ensure our food is healthily balanced. We use only fresh organic meats, fresh organic fruits and vegetables and for each variety a precisely coordinated mix of the vitamins and minerals lacking after the cooking-process, plus specific omega 3- and 6- oils, before it is diligently heated to preserve as many of the natural nutrients.
Our own dogs have the job to test our food (a great reason to have so many!). If they don’t like it, we don’t like it. If they don’t look amazing, we don’t look good.
We love dogs – and proper nutrition is a big part of good dog-keeping.
