We're Vermont Dog Eats and we make people-grade dog treats with locally-sourced and organic ingredients. Our all-natural dog treats are handmade, baked and bagged right here in Vermont.
It all began one day when we decided that rather than buying dog treats with ingredients we couldn't pronounce, we would buy locally-sourced, healthy & organic foods and make them ourselves. The rest, as they say, is history! We're happy to make a product that makes dogs happier and healthier, and we're happy that owners can give their furry friends food that is just...food.
We have a network of local farms and partners that offer us access to some of the finest food around and as a result our dog treats are made with entirely real, human-grade food and absolutely NO wheat, soy, corn, sugar, byproducts or preservatives. We believe that good dog eats are vital to the health of of our furry friends.
As proud parents of a rescue dog and a few foster pups ourselves, we can’t say enough about the work done by animal rescue groups. That's why every year we donate 2% of our profits to local animal rescue/welfare organizations. In short, we're happy to support the great community that supports Vermont Dog Eats and our furry friends.
Our Quality Control Team
Napoleon, our chihuahua, is now 14 years old...and going strong! His favorite activities include hiking Camel's Hump and other area mountains, cleaning up toddler-flung food scraps and lounging in the sun.
Our rescue pitbull, Ginger, isn't too far behind Napoleon in years. She loves people and dogs of all shapes and sizes, and is certified with Therapy Dogs of Vermont. As so many of you know, she is our faithful companion at the Burlington Farmers' Market. If you haven't already, please come visit and join Ginger's growing fan club!
We choose to source our ingredients from organic farmers who are raising animals humanely, growing produce sustainably, and contributing to the overall health of our local food systems and economy.
We want to be a part of the solution, not the problem. By taking part in the National Organic Program, we are demonstrating a commitment to sustainable food production that values quality over quantity and puts the planet ahead of profits.
We believe in feeding dogs the same quality foods we feed ourselves. That means foods without pesticides, preservatives, artificial flavors or chemicals of any kind. No junk, just food.
Our mission is to make dogs happy with real food. Our vision is to change the way people feed their dogs. Becoming certified organic is just one step on the path to realizing that vision. Thank you for taking that step with us!
Farm to Dog Bowl
Locally Sourced & Direct Trade
We source as many ingredients as possible from our neighbors in the area. In fact, some actually are our neighbors at the Burlington Farmers' Market! And we thank them for their partnership and support.
In addition, whenever possible, we purchase direct from our farm partners, assuring they get the best price for their product and we get the best they have to offer.
Our goal is to improve the lives of dogs and their owners. So we try our best to give back to the doggy community (and community-at-large around us). We give away free treats, or offer them as gifts for raffles, and every year we donate 2% of our net profits to dog-loving organizations. Because, to make it personal, without organizations like these, we'd never have our Ginger.
We've given, humbly, to the following organizations... Thank you for helping us support them.
