Healthy Treats Launching Dogs Love Snapeas
Healthy Treats, maker of Dogs Love Kale, is launching Dogs Love Snapeas. The crispy baked treats are gluten-free and will be available in three limited ingredient flavors: Peas & Chicken (peas, brown rice and seasoned with dehydrated chicken and sunflower oil), Peas & Beef (peas, brown rice and seasoned with dehydrated beef and sunflower oil) and Peas & Cheese (peas, brown rice and seasoned with Himalayan yak cheese and sunflower oil).
Paula Savarese, president and co-founder of Healthy Treats, based in Naples, Fla., says the company will launch the line at Global Pet Expo this month. Dogs Love Kale is seeing success in many pet specialty stores, and Savarese says the new Dogs Love Snapeas will be available to the grocery and mass channels too. “I don’t believe that most pet owners make it a point to visit the pet aisle in grocery stores,” she says. “If products like ours, which make it very clear that they are for dogs, were right in the customer’s face, more would sell.”
Savarese adds that peas are an excellent source of carbohydrates, fiber, protein and many essential vitamins and minerals. They provide most of the essential amino acids required by dogs and cats, contain insoluble fiber, soluble fiber and resistant starch, which provide benefits for the digestive system.
Dogs Love Kale is a line of all natural and gluten/grain free treats in crunchy and soft varieties. Kale is a superfood that is high in antioxidants and contains essential nutrients including beta-carotene, calcium, vitamin K, vitamin C and lutein.
