Many of us think we know our dogs better than we know ourselves, but if they could ~actually~ let us in on what they're thinking, they'd probably communicate that they'd like something more exciting to eat... Chippin's got them covered with tasty treats galore.
There’s often a lot of heartache involved when finding the perfect snack or treat. Nobody wants to spend a boatload of money on something your dog turns their nose up at. That’s one of the many reasons why Chippin is a company worth looking into.
Their puppy chow is looking to save the planet by eschewing common ingredients like beef and chicken in favor of underutilized (and more sustainable) proteins like crickets, overpopulated fish and plants.
“It’s shocking,” CEO Haley Russell said, “that you see people walking through Whole Foods, putting plant-based foods in their reusable bags, but when you hit the pet food aisle so much of it is conventional meat protein.”
Chippin is an emerging brand of dog food, food toppers, and treats that use sustainable sources of protein and other ingredients to help reduce the carbon footprint while giving our dogs something they’ll love.
The proteins used in these treats create a viable solution without using proteins that often cause bad reactions for pets. Yes, you will find that crickets are a part of this solution, and they work wonderfully!
In this episode of the pawdcast, Karen and Jean chat with Kathleen Wojtowitz, head of marketing for Chippin, a woman-owned small business that’s hellbent on providing delicious and nutritious dog treats and food while reducing the pet food industry’s carbon pawprint.
