Marketing the e-book, “Fables from the Magic Tunnel" is always my top priority. However, sometimes a Plan B comes along and you go with the flow.
And, "Plan B" arrived in full force and Zen is responsible so to speak.
Zen, having severe allergies, prompted me to completely revamp his diet. I have switched him to a grain free kibble, raw veggies, and wild canned salmon and liver as a supplement. He is on vitamins; herbs and everything else that will build his immune system and help eleviate scratching himself raw.
When it came to treats, I found most of them have one thing or another that Zen is not supposed to ingest. My friend, Belladonna has two dogs and guess what? She is facing the same situation with their severe scratching.
A long story, shorter version; with the prompting of Zen’s groomer (who mentioned that many of her customers were also looking for an all-natural treat) Belladonna and I committed to producing a treat for ourselves and other people whose dogs could benefit. Therefore, Aunt Bella Lee Natural Dog Treats came to be. They are USA organic, all natural, no fillers, dehydrated sweet potato and yams.
Our dogs love them! And, most dogs do also. There have been a few dogs that do not know what to do with them, and do not eat them right away, since they are not full of a tempting, meaty scent. Some dogs will leave them and then come back and gobble them down.
We are now in full production these days, using commercial dehydrators full-time. The reception has been awesome and we are selling to individuals, local businesses (including our dog groomer) and we even have our first salesperson!
We are so grateful that we are fulfilling a need out there, and we also can give back by donating bags of treats to Pick of the Litter Thrift store in Newport, Oregon. Proceeds from the Thrift store sales, supports our local animal shelter.
