Ken Schlegel and Ralf La Belle own Edelweiss Bakery in Johnson, VT. They have also created a business with products specifically for our K9 companions. House Wolf K-9 Dog Biscuits are not your typically dog biscuits. Each ingredient is carefully thought-out and sourced. They include oats which can be anti-inflammatory and flax seed for fiber and energy. They NEVER use wheat, corn or salt.
There are three important family members to meet next: Sasha, Dakota and Our Kayak. These wonderful dogs inspired Ken and Ralf to create House Wolf and are the reason why they take the time to make each dog biscuit by hand.
Here is more on the start up of House Wolf: “Edelweiss Bakery & Cafe we already had many of the all natural ingredients on the premises and since we were providing healthy meals to our patrons, we thought why not make their own biscuits here at the bakery as well.We were concerned about what they didn’t need in their diets so we researched a more holistic approach to their feeding. The Wolf came to mind and being our K-9 friends are not to far removed from the Wolf, we research on how they lived and ate in the wild. Our three didn’t need artificial food colorings, preservatives and starches and syrups (sweeteners) nor did they need Humectant and Plasticizer so their biscuits and treats maintained dampness and flexibility. This is where we developed a biscuit for the three of them that had a much more healthier approach.”
My golden retriever Daisy was happy to taste test the Peanut Butter and Apple snacks from House Wolf. Here is the list of ingredients: Oatmeal, Brown Rice Flour, Shredded Apple, All Natural Peanut Butter and Chicken Stock. That’s it! Daisy is always eager to get a snack and I am happy knowing that these dog biscuits are incredibly healthy. The apple and peanut butter offer a bit of sweetness while the oatmeal and brown rice will keep her belly full. The biscuits are very hard and crunchy.
Daisy has also enjoyed the Catch of the Wild snacks from House Wolf. Ingredients: Oatmeal, Organic Brown Rice Flour, Soy Bean Flour, Wild Caught Salmon, Organic Shredded Carrots, Parsley all blended with Spring Water. That all sounds pretty tasty, right? Note that I have been calling these snacks and not treats. When I think of a treat I think of something that I am probably not suppose to have very often, but these snacks are full of such great ingredients that I don’t hesitate giving them to Daisy (in moderation, of course).
I am sorry that there are no pictures of Daisy with her snacks. She is much too excited about eating her snacks to sit and have her picture taken!
