The idea for dishlickers began after having limited work due to the COVID Lockdown, but having the opportunity to hang out with Tiger more. We started work-shopping a crazy business idea together – Greyhound friendly food... while the rest of the locked-down world concentrated on mastering sour-dough bread, I cooked a lot of biscuits that contained things like sardines, peanut butter or other healthy hound-friendly ingredients, while Tiger tasted and judged them (he can be very harsh in his judgement when he doesn't like something). After lots of trial and error that crazy idea turned into dishlickers.com and we are now selling healthy treats suitable not only for Greyhounds but all dogs.
One of the motivating reasons to start making healthy treats for Tiger was the realisation of how many additives, chemicals and low quality ingredients there are in commercially produced dog foods, and how many products are made from 'imported' ingredients. Lock-down became our opportunity to re-asses where our food comes from and how we can live better and healthier on locally sourced foods, and how this also applies to the hairier members of our family.
Everything we make is made from either Australian or New Zealand ingredients (with the odd exception – if there is an Australian producer of Cinnamon, please get in touch). All of the items from our bakery are home made using the freshest and highest quality natural (organic if possible) ingredients available.
Tiger is our tasting expert. Everything we sell has been tasted (repeatedly) and approved by Tiger – if he doesn't get excited by it, we don't sell it.
We hope your hound(s) enjoy our treats as much as Tiger does.
