Meet Indie. She loves long walks, fast runs, and tennis balls. She is always happy to help us review great Vermont products.
Vermont Dog Eats began in Burlington 3 years ago. Owners Elisa & Vance Kiviranna tell us more about their start: “Naturally, as Vermonters, we like to eat locally, and our dogs do, too (OK, so they don’t really care, but we do!). One day we decided that rather than buying organic dog treats and eats from elsewhere, we would buy local ingredients and make the eats ourselves. The rest, as they say, is history.”
These treats are easily set apart due to the high quality, local, organic, ingredients used. With their “farm to dog bowl” mantra and belief that what dogs eat is vital to their health, Vermont Dog Eats is far surpassing any big batch treats you may find in the store. They are also happy to support local farmers and suppliers including Pete’s Greens, Full Moon Farm, and Farmer Brown.
Currently Vermont Dog Eats makes three different dog treats: Napoleon’s Nibbles – Beef & Vegetable (best seller!), Ginger’s Snaps – Ginger & Molasses, and their latest: Dixie’s Delights – Grain-Free Pork & Beans.
Two friends shared these treats with their pups and here are their reviews:
“Walker is very picky when it comes to dog treats. He will sniff a treat and quickly decide whether it is worth sampling. Walker gobbled up these treats (now I forgot the brand name). As his owner, I love that they are made locally and with high quality ingredients. Two paws up!” ~Julianna
Indie agrees, the treats are great. Indie is a very active dog. We spent a lot of time researching the best food for her and will only buy the best treats for her too: Vermont Dog Eats. She needs the best in order to be her best.
Want another great reason to buy these great VT treats? Here is more from Elisa: “As proud parents of a rescue dog and occasional fosters ourselves, we can’t say enough about the work done by animal rescue groups. And we put our money where our mouth is by donating 5% of our profits to local animal rescue/welfare organizations. Because supporting Vermont Dog Eats means supporting the local community, too.”
So where can you find Vermont Dog Eats? Find them at the Burlington Farmers’ Market, or several local retailers, including Pet Food Warehouse, Healthy Living Market and Guy’s Farm and Yard.
