An extra special box with a birthday cake - several treats - toys - and of course a Birthday card
This is a 'one off' box - especially for birthdays. PLEASE NOTE - the birthday cake is baked to order - please allow a week for your birthday box to be posted.
If you would like to receive a regular box every month please use the subscription offer.
You will get a mix of 6 x packs of my hand baked gluten free dog treats baked that month - you don't even have to make big choices. The packs will be - meat or fish based treats - fruit or vegetable based treats - and an 'other' - something sweet or cheese or carob - plus you will get one of my handmade toys - either one of the lovies - or a squeaky bone - a ball - or a tug toy. A birthday cake to share with your doggie pals is included along with a pot of 'icing' and a pot of 'chocolate' sprinkles. Due to the posting I wrap the cake in tinfoil - and put the icing and sprinkles in separate pots for you to add to the cake when you unpack the box. There is also a doggie birthday card.
Baking is done the first week of the month. I try very hard to not repeat a flavour from the previous month - sometimes it is unavoidable if there is not much choice at the butchers / market.
All my hand baked gluten free dog treats are baked in a gluten free kitchen from fresh ingredients. I am DEFRA registered and Trading Standards have checked me.
individual net weight per treat pack is 50g
The treats are sent out in an cardboard box, in food grade plastic bags and tissue packing.
Store in a cool, dry place and consume treats within 4 months of the individual baking date - pup cakes 2 weeks - but you can pop them in the freezer and defrost as needed.
This is a treat for your dog – it is not a substitute for a meal.
We have very carefully researched the flours we use in our signature mix to create a gluten free base that will deliver the very best treats to your dog – packed with goodness and benefits.
Brown Rice Flour Brown rice flour is made from ground brown rice. It’s considered a whole-grain flour and contains the bran, germ and endosperm. This flour is high in protein and fibre, both of which can help lower blood sugar levels and reduce body weight. It’s also rich in iron, B vitamins, magnesium and manganese, as well as plant compounds called lignans. Research suggests that lignans help protect against heart disease
Oat Flour Oat flour is made by grinding whole-grain oats. We actually make our own oat flour in our kitchen. It gives baked goods more flavour than all-purpose flour and results in a chewier, crumblier texture. Oats contain a type of soluble fibre called beta-glucan, which has numerous health benefits. This fibre can help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol, as well as blood sugar and insulin levels. They’re also rich in other nutrients like protein, magnesium, phosphorus, B-vitamins and the antioxidant group avenanthramides.
Rough Ground Polenta Coarse, stone-ground yellow polenta has a rich, nutty taste thanks to the flecks of germ that remain in the meal. The rough-cut polenta keeps its strong starchy flavour and texture during cooking. It mixes easily with other ingredients while its grittier texture preserves a rich, distinctive taste. It’s high in fibre and a good source of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. These two plant compounds act as antioxidants and can benefit eye health by decreasing age-related macular degeneration and reducing the risk of cataracts. It’s also high in vitamin B6, thiamine, manganese, magnesium and the antioxidant selenium. Corn is from a different branch of the grass family than gluten-rich wheat, barley and rye.
Teff flour Teff is the world’s smallest grain and is 1/100 the size of a kernel of wheat. It comes in a variety of colours, ranging from white to red to dark brown. Light colours have a mild flavour, while darker shades are more earthy in taste. Teff flour is high in protein, which promotes a feeling of fullness and can help reduce cravings. Its high fibre content can help manage blood sugar, decrease appetite and aid weight loss. What’s more, it contains more calcium than any other grain and is the only ancient grain containing vitamin C.
