The story of Max and Bella, rather strangely, did not start with pets named Max or Bella.
It started with a special Jack Russell, Kalant (Afrikaans for Scamp) and my love for him. Kalant was old and had a few health issues. I was not convinced that the commercial dog treats would be good for him. I couldn’t pronounce half of what was listed as ingredients. At my resource I had a kitchen and time. The experimentation began! A few test batches later and the “Nuts for You” treat was developed. Kalant was sold!
Fast-forward to 2016 and upon hearing that I bake biscuits for our miniature schnauzer, Max, friends begin ordering treats for their own dogs. Their dogs are their children and they want to spoil them with healthy, homemade treats. We return to the kitchen to experiment with new flavours including the very popular “Vegilicious” and “Minty Fresh”. They’re instant hits!
We now bake biscuits to order for many special pooches across the country. Each batch is made with minimal ingredients and maximum love. Max is on hand to test a sample from each batch. Our passion project is a way to have dogs across the country eating our delicious artisan biscuits. Because we’re preservative free, our handmade biscuits have a 3-4 week shelf-life if stored in the fridge. But we suspect they’ll be gone before then!
