There are many reasons to choose Island Skalliwags treats above the vast selection found on store shelves. The top reasons are that all of our ingredients are restaurant grade and 100% from nature. Everything we put into our products has a healthy purpose and has been chosen by our K9 Nutrition Specialist Katie. Oh, and our packaging is recyclable and eco-friendly! Find out more here.

No, our treats are baked at low temperatures and dehydrated to take moisture out while preserving the nutrients. They are best kept in their original packaging with the zip seal closed and kept out of direct sun.
Island Skalliwags dog treats have a long shelf life because of the low moisture content. They’ll keep well for as long as a year unopened. For maximum freshness we recommend using them within 3 weeks of opening the bag.
The treats are all crafted with human grade meats and organic produce, some grown in our own garden! We know kids are curious about what their pet is eating and we’ve probably all eaten our dog’s food at one point. Rest assured, if your child gets into our treats, they are perfectly safe. (We actually have more than one customer who buys our Blueberry Blast for themselves!)
Depending on the size of your dog, you’ll be serving a proportional amount of calories based on vet or other recommendations. Whatever calories are allotted for their daily food, you can switch out 10% for treats. The nice thing about Skalliwags treats is that they are all canine appropriate and supplement health. Variety keeps it playful too!
We do not add anything artificial to our treats. Some of our 100% from nature ingredients, such as cranberries and blueberries, have naturally occurring preservative properties.
All of our meat is from a restaurant distributor, and comes only from Federally inspected facilities.
Our Beef, Bison, Boar and Lamb are from Canada and are raised free of antibiotics and steroids, and are grass-fed/organic.
Our venison is from New Zealand because the highest-quality venison comes from New Zealand, where the temperate climate allows deer to be raised out on pastures, eating live and growing grasses all year round... It makes for better meat.
All of our kangaroo is wild, and sustainably sourced from Australian government conservation cull programs - a practice that promotes herd health.
We believe all dogs deserve treats and so we’ve developed low fat options and hypo-allergenic treats for those dogs who are on restricted diets. Kangaroo is a great source of low fat protein and our Blueberry Blast is actually vegan! You’ll love our limited and single ingredient treats when you’re trying to find one that’s just right for your pet’s needs.
Yes, we send our treats out for testing at SGC and can offer that to you upon request.
