Our roots are on tiny Protection Island off the coast of Nanaimo, Vancouver Island. Protection Island is a fun, if not quirky place where everything is named with a pirate theme; there's Pirate Lane, Captain Morgans Boulevard, Blackbeard Park, and Long John Silver Park - to name a few!
With a strong set of core values, we started out making healthy dog treats for the residents of Protection Island and decided to choose a fun name to match the PLAYFUL spirit of this place. It is because of our connection to this small island and it's inhabitants (human and animal alike) that we operate with the philosophy of PURE west coast island life.
You probably hear the term ‘canine appropriate’ or ‘species appropriate’ when referring to a dog’s ideal diet. That’s because a dog’s digestive system, from teeth to tail, is different than ours and different than that of a ruminating animal such as a cow or sheep. A dog’s system is designed to eat meat as a primary source of nutrition. But he also requires the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants from other food sources.
All of our meaty snacks are crafted by a canine nutrition specialist using limited ingredients, restaurant grade meats as our number one ingredient and organic produce. They are processed at low heat to take out moisture while locking in their nutritional value.
When calculating how many snacks to feed, keep in mind that no more than 10% of calories daily, from snacks, is recommended by veterinarians.
Choosing a Skalliwags snack is a nutritionally sound choice that will delight your dog!
