Hi, and welcome to Skalliwags Dog Treats!
My name is Katie and this is my best mate Tana. I’m a certified canine nutrition specialist and a retired teacher living in beautiful Cowichan Bay on Vancouver Island, B.C.
I started Skalliwags Dog Treats in 2017 , to develop pure and playful treats for Tana. She’s part of the family and I want her to have a long and healthy life. You want the same for your pets.
What goes into a dog is key to building health. Every ingredient should support their immune system and other bodily functions. When fed well, your pet is less likely to develop health issues and allergies, and proper diet can add years to their life (not to mention saving you a lot of $ on vet bills!)
Skalliwags Dog Treats is proud to use only the best ingredients.
Cocoa wasn’t my dog but she was certainly my friend.
I was off work for a while after an injury and Cocoa spent the days with me when her owner was off at work. We played fetch and find games, enjoyed snuggles and she brightened up some dark days.
When she was diagnosed with cancer and had to be put down, our hearts broke! I still miss her every day.
In her memory, Skalliwags is dedicated to the task of helping animals who are suffering and need medical attention. Animals that have no one to help them. A portion of profits for Island Skalliwags will go into a fund, in Cocoa’s name, that will help pay for medical expenses for injured animals who have been abandoned or whose family can’t afford the expense of veterinary care.
We support organizations such as the Victoria Humane Society, dog rescue groups, including Ziggy’s Rescue, the SPCA and individuals who are facing financial hardship and need medical attention for their dogs.
Having talked to 100s of people about their dogs, I was determined to produce treats to meet a variety of health concerns too.
I love to know a dog with pancreatitis, for instance, can still crunch down on a tasty treat! That’s what my vegan Blueberry Blast is for! (but people like them too!) Three of our treats are single ingredient too so dogs with allergies can enjoy our snacks.
I invite you to look at our variety and try them out. Your satisfaction (and your pup’s) is very important to us! We are sure you’ll love them and feel good about feeding them.
I’m proud to say our new packaging is recyclable and eco-friendly.
Skalliwags Dog Treats are a perfect high value training tool for the new puppy in your life and skalliwag you've had for years alike.
Most of our treats can very easily be broken into very small pieces, ideal for lots of repetition and reward. Choosing our single ingredient treats for this will limit the amount of crumbs you get from breaking the treats apart, and your dog will respond very well to the amazing smell of pure meat!
