Handmade, Organic, Healthy, Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Preservative-Free, Holistic & Human-Grade
At Not For Dogs Only, LLC (NFDO) we know that most "people food" just isn't healthy for dogs. Well, not anymore, our treats are 'formulated for dogs, yet suitable for humans.' We start with fresh organic produce like apples & bananas & then add 100% human-grade wet & dry organic ingredients such as flax meal, raw oats, buckwheat flour, unsalted peanut butter, honey, farm fresh eggs & vanilla. Next we hand cut each cookie & then slow bake them at very low temperatures. Each cookie is packaged inside an environmentally friendly, compostable stand-up bag. All sealed with the official dog paw sticker & tie closure for maintaining freshness like the day they were baked! Give your dog a Real treat!
What Sets Us Apart
Sourcing only the highest quality products such as Willamette buckwheat flour, Sumatran cinnamon, honey & Tahitian vanilla.
All of which are certified organic and also fair trade!
All of our ingredients are gluten-free & organic. Our eggs come from free range happy chickens that live freely on the farm where we bake the treats; can't get much more local than that! Free range farm fresh eggs have greater health benefits than organic cage free eggs, making them the highest quality of egg. Maintaining nutritional value in our treats is achieved by resourcing the highest quality of ingredients. Creating a grain-free, healthy & organic treat is our standard.
Our treats are 100% free of wheat, corn, soy, salt, garlic and preservatives. We add natural, holistic & healing ingredients such as lavender and honey. We thoroughly research every single ingredient to ensure our treats are beneficially healthy for all dogs. Our research always inspires our mission as we learn of dogs having multiple types of allergic reactions to food they should not have been fed in the first place. Dogs digestive systems are sensitive, some more than others as a poor diet may have reduced their bodies ability to absorb nutrients. It is our responsibility to educate ourselves, to read the ingredients label & to take care of our dog(s) with love and respect.
Each one of our products is meant to be healing to the mind & spirit as well as the body. We are meticulous in crafting our treats & we want each ingredient to serve a purpose. All of our ingredients are selected for their nutritional benefit. We bake at very low temperatures, just enough to remove moisture, to ensure the nutritional benefit of each ingredient is upheld and our high standard of a healthy treat is accomplished. NFDO believes that eating should refuel the body, mind & spirit.
At this time, our Banana Lavender blend is the most holistic variety followed by the Apple Cinnamon Crunchies. The aromic effects of these treats leave you feeling blissful. We handcraft all of our treats in beautiful Cottage Grove, Oregon in a certified kitchen located on Branch Road Biodynamic Farms. We feel fortunate to be affiliated with the Branch Road Biodynamic Farm as we have access to the most fresh ingredients full of nutrients!
Our lavender and flax seed based treats are not only calming but also great for the skin, coat and teeth. Lavender naturally helps aid digestion by soothing the lining of the esophagus and creating more bile in order to help digest fats.
Many people have the impression that eating organic is all about saving the planet and sustainability; it is so much more than that. It is a conscious choice made every time you put something into or even onto your body. It is about making a decision about how we want our mind, body and spirit to feel; dog or human it is one of the most important decisions we will ever make.
Not For Dogs Only, LLC has been inspired by wanting to feed our dog only the best. Seven is the most picky taste tester we have found; proudly snubbing Milkbones at the gas station. He has a very active lifestyle and he needs quality food to refuel. That is why we take every opportunity to feed him Real food. When we say the word, "Real" we mean products produced without using artificial ingredients such as preservatives, chemicals, Red #4, #5 and growth hormones. Real means ingredients that can be produced naturally & organically & that are prepared without removing its nutritional value. Seven not only inspired us to create NFDO but he inspired us to eat Real too!
Due to lack of education regarding natural food benefits; most people don't consider the food they ingest having a direct impact on their physically and emotionally well being. Our actions determine our intentions; we are what we eat. Same goes for dogs. Farmed animals treated unjustly absorb negative energy from their environment and transfer it to the consumer. This is part of the process of the food chain, and that is why it’s so important to know what you, your family and animals eat.
A diet that is full of color is a healthy diet. Stay away from foods that are bland in color, such as potatoes, white rice, noodles & plain bread. Instead, eat rich in color foods you can share with your dog like cabbage, asparagus, sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, blueberries, spinach, kale, pumpkin, tomatoes, & broccoli; & if you want to you can munch on these items all day!
We donate cookies to the homeless, humane shelters and dog rescues. We sponsor Dog and Green events. We like to make sure all dogs can participate in Greenhill Humane Society's Annual Egg Hunt so we donate our healthy treats to fill all the eggs. We caught humans "test tasting" the treat before sharing it with their dog and some didn't share at all! We understand! Ryann snacks as much as Seven does.
We Love Being GREEN
