Snack. Play. Namaste. These are the three words that are prominently displayed on each of the five flavors of Colorado-based Down Dog Snacks’ new, brightly colored packaging.

“Our new packaging was designed to reflect the personality of each of our current five flavors— Peanut Buddha Bones, Sweet Pawtato Pups, Apple Berry Zensations, Banana Bliss and Peas, Love & Carrots,” Down Dog Snacks Owner Jessie Walker said. “We now have a BIG 16 oz. bag of BIG Peanut Buddha Bones for large size breeds too. Our dog treats are grain-free and plant-based. They do not contain any dairy, corn, soy, eggs, sugar or wheat—just wholesome, limited, human-grade ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible. We do use local honey, so we call ourselves ‘bee-gan.’”

Walker boasts that the company only uses pronounceable and recognizable ingredients.

“You can snack on them, too. After all, you are what you and your dog eat,” she said.

A former ad executive and current yoga instructor, Walker has expanded her family’s business across the country to Colorado, where she founded these “gourmutt” treats. Walker’s family owns a dog treat business based in New Jersey, Fat Murray’s Doggy Treats. Murray was Walker’s big boned basset hound that sadly passed away several years ago.

“Down Dog Snacks was created to keep your Barking Buddhas happy and healthy. I knew I wanted to stay in the family business of dog treats but ‘basset hound,’ ‘fat’ and ‘Colorado’ didn’t seem to jive,” Walker said. “Thus, I infused my love for dogs, yoga and health and created my own grain-free, plant-based enterprise. Yes, my career has gone to the dogs.”

Each treat is baked by hand with all-natural ingredients that keeps your dog zen, one snack at a time. And now these treats can be found in bold, colorful packaging. Special holiday packaging is also available.
