Leanie and Lou is a bodacious Melbourne based company providing delicious, healthy, high value dogs treats for your pooch. Maintaining an individual approach to doggy style zen based treats.
Our treats were invented, and are produced and distributed from our local Brunswick doggy pantry with Victorian sourced sustainable and ethically grown organic ingredients*. They contain important nutrients and vitamins to promote optimal health and well being for Peoples best friend (‘mans best friend’ circa 1950s).
Leanie and Lou differs considerably from your usual store bought treats...
Big production companies chemically process ‘normal’ dog treats, which are heavily salted and full of preservatives. All bad things (unless you’re aiming for a 100 year old treat in your treat cellar). Most mass produced, readily available dog treats involve off cuts and by-products without a lick of nutritional value. I mean, put enough salt, sugar and fat in a product and I’m sure it’ll be loved by your canine companion, while also reducing lifespan, contributing to poor physical and emotional health and generally being a bad scene...
Organic, premium human-grade ingredients
All our ingredients are hypoallergenic, organic, ethical, delicious and DELICIOUS… Dairy free (turns out chickens aren’t dairy), corn free (no high fructose sugars), low fat and high protein, no artificial colours or preservatives (gross!!), no added sodium or sugars, and maximum deliciousness.
Leanie and Lou doggy treats are the most delicious doggy style treats on the planet, guaranteed. Your dog will do almost anything for these treats, which is why we call them high value. Perfect for training purposes, or just to show them how much you love them. Don’t give me that face, you just had one. You can't have them all now, there won’t be any left...
But there will be!! We make all our delicious treats in Melbourne, North Side Yo... We hand make treats through the age old art of mixing, baking, cutting AND... adhere to PFIAA certified industry standards.
We naturally air dry our treats to lock in flavour and retain nutritional value, without the need for loads of chemicals, sodium or preservatives.
Also, as if our social and environmental conscience wasn’t yet making you barf (good word), we also use earth bags http://bfy.tw/Cpfk. Which are… wait for it… locally sourced, sustainable and biodegradable.. Surprise!
Made With Love
MADE WITH ALL THE GOOD STUFF
We love animals!! Chickens deserve a good life. Chickens are people too. All our eggs come from happy chickens, sourced from Victorian free range farms. We make sure free range actually means free range.
Fish are people too. Well, they haven’t established much in the way of universal healthcare and education structures, but also neither has America. As well, they poop in the water that they breath. At Leanie and Lou, we perceive fish as an important component of our complex environmental structure, and use only the ethically caught, sustainable variety. Our fish come from ‘rod and pole’ fishing sources, absolutely no FAD or nets (Fish Attractive Devices). No dead dolphins, no dead whales, no dead sharks/turtles/sea cows. Sea cows are people too. Absolutely no promotion of overfishing in an industry monopolised by big business.
Turmeric is people too. Actually it's not. Turmeric is a super food, in case you didn’t know. Turmeric is high in antioxidant properties. It’s a rising herbaceous perennial plant, with strong anti-inflammatory properties that are increasingly being harnessed by health promoting practitioners to optimise physical and mental health. Turmeric promotes a healthy and happy mind set, in animals as well as humans. It is utilised as an anti-depressant, an anti-inflammatory, and has been linked to significant health improvements including improving insulin sensitivity in diabetics, and has cholesterol lowering properties to promote optimal cardiovascular health. Turmeric has positive gastrointestinal properties, and is used in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Ulcerative Colitis to naturally improve bowel symptoms. Turmeric is rad.. Which is why the Thornlandia component of the Northern Suburbs take it regularly in their Latte Enemas.
Tryptophan. We might skip the charade that Tryptophan is a person. Tryptophan is a well known amino acid used to synthesise protein and is a precursor to serotonin, a very important happy brain component. Tryptophan is the new emerging front line treatment for anxiety and low mood. It is naturally occurring, and has natural calming effects. Tryptophan is a fantastic organic supplement to producing a happy and energetic well balanced best friend. Although Tryptophan is a natural physiological amino acid, it cannot be produced by dogs. It needs to be ingested. Our treats contain Tryptophan, which is not a person, but is a delicious mood regulator to help keep your best mate(s) happy, healthy, and energetic.
