A balanced diet with quality ingredients and nutritious treats made from whole foods.
Unleash the potential of raw foods using a food dehydrator. Make treats for training and adventures.
A dehydrator allows you to harness the potential of raw foods by preserving their nutritious power.
And pet owners can find creative ways to make homemade dog food.
An owner's story
Patrick makes dehydrated foods for his Siberian huskies, Conrad and Cara, using sweet potato and a combination of raw meats. By dehydrating his treats for additional time, Patrick's homemade dog food becomes crispy and breakable, allowing him to snap off little pieces for his huskies when they behave. Plus the crunchy treats keep Conrad’s and Cara’s teeth clean and plaque-free.
Owners like Patrick use quality ingredients to fuel their dogs through hikes, adventures, and outback trips. A helpful tip from Patrick: freeze your meats for easy slicing. This way you can make extra crispy jerky. Then strap a pack to your dog so that your canine can carry its own lightweight food.
Remember. No refrigeration needed with dehydrated, homemade dog food.

Dogs with allergies? Kidney disease? Sensitive stomachs? Some pet food owners use a dehydrator to make treats out of mint, parsley, oats, and basil to combat their dog’s halitosis.
