When our beautiful Labrador x Shepherd Sandy began having severe reactions to preservatives and additives in processed pet foods and treats we began researching and learning to make our own healthy food and treats. We learnt how to nutritionally balance meals and make tasty dog treats and cookies without the need for preservatives, artificial colours, flavours, sugar or salt.
At the time we also owned a very reputable and award winning grooming salon. Over the years we had also noticed an increase in a variety of disorders in dogs such as allergies, pancreatitis, dermatitis, cancer and diabetes just to name a few. Our grooming salon was a very valuable resource because we could give out sample treats to the dogs we groomed and ask the owners for feedback.
The owners would tell us which flavours their dogs liked and report to us that dogs who were experiencing reactions to preservatives and additives were happily enjoying our treats without the occurrence of any adverse reactions.
After a great deal of experimentation, consulting with Veterinarians, Naturopaths and Holistic Practitioners, and then perfecting our recipes, we began selling our treats from the small reception area of our grooming salon. It was not long before we realised that we needed to set up the business as a separate identity with its own professional premises and adequate baking equipment. And so.....The Woofery was born.....
