Chippin for Pets & Planet
Sustainability is at the core of Chippin, from ingredient sourcing to packaging. We believe that healthy nutrition for our dogs should not come at the expense of our planet.
THE FOOD OUR PUPS EAT PLAYS A KEY ROLE IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
Together we can save water and reduce our footprint. All with nutritious and powerful foods.
WATER SCARCITY & TRADITIONAL PROTEIN
80 % of water in the US is used for food production.
The production of traditional meat is an incredibly resource-intensive practice.
And it's not just food for humans: 90M dogs in the U.S. alone play a key role in our food system.

WHAT CAN WE DO?
Cricket Protein is the viable solution.
A protein-rich diet is good for our pups; cricket protein is a complete protein that uses far less water.
Each 5 oz bag of Chippin snacks saves 40 gallons of water on average over any other dog treats.
GREENHOUSE GASES & TRADITIONAL PROTEIN
Livestock: the primary source of methane emissions.
Domestic livestock produce large amounts of methane as part of their normal digestive processes. Methane emissions have more than 20 times the global warming potential as CO2 over a 100-year period.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Crickets produce zero methane.
Unlike livestock, crickets do not emit any methane gas. By feeding your pup Chippin's cricket protein based snacks you can reduce your footprint.
Human Grade Crickets, Humanely Harvested
We source our high quality protein from a family-owned farm in Canada.
Humane & Sustainable
From Farm to Snack
Crickets (Gryllodes sigillatus) have a natural lifespan of 6-10 weeks. Shortly after they reproduce, crickets naturally die.
Our partner farms harvests at the natural end of their life span. The crickets are then cleaned, cooked, and ground into fine powder.
We then combine cricket protein with premium ingredients in oven-baked in small batches.
Not only are crickets a complete protein, but they also have a high Omega -3 to -6 ratio and are rich in vitamin B-12. The cricket protein used in Chippin products is sourced from Entomo Farms.
Crickets compared to Traditional Meats
Crickets are an all natural, nutrient-dense, and hypoallergic protein for dogs with beef or chicken allergies.
Compared to these traditional meats, crickets have a higher protein and vitamin B12 content.
Reviews: Pups Love the Taste!
Ashley, Pet Parent to Bonita, Bandit & Benji
Our pups absolutely loved these treats. Usually our oldest boy is a picky eater when it comes to snacks but he gobbled these up as fast as he possibly could. These will definitely be a staple in our doggie pantry.
Donna, Pet Parent to Shadow
Shadow is a mini labradoodle that refuses to eat treats. To my surprise, he loved these treats! In addition, he has a highly sensitive stomach and did not experience tummy issues! Highly recommend!!!
