At WAG, we know you care and are interested about how your doggy's treats are made. From Jerky to Bones to Chews, here's a peek of how WAG treats go from paddock to plate.
We put the same care into our treats as you would a homecooked meal.
Melbourne, Victoria. This is where the tail wagging begins. Treats like our dehydrated Jerkies, Antler and Goat Horn arrive every week from our carefully selected suppliers. These facilities are all state-of-the-art and accredited places where quality and safety is tested - no mongrel ingredients to be found!
WAG Goat Horns come from right here in Victoria! Goats are culled for their meat for human consumption. The Horns are usually then left to decompose into the ground or are thrown into landfill. That is when we wag our way in and collect them. From here, the Horns are boiled to sterilise and pop the live bone and membrane out - some folk mistake the inside of a Horn for marrow but it takes a lot of preservatives to keep the bone and membrane in tact which is why we sell them without. After the sterilisation process, they are sent to us here in Melbourne, cut down in different sizes and quality control checked (again!) before being wrapped with a label and ready for your doggy to eat. It's as pure and simple as that!
WAG Antler is hard Antler - not velvet Antler - that comes from New Zealand. Every year, Deer start growing their antler in the Spring and naturally shed their antler towards the end of Winter. Once they are naturally shed, they are picked up from the ground, heated up to around 72C to sterilise them and delivered to us in Melbourne. From there they are cut down in different sizes and quality control checked (again!) before being wrapped with a label and ready for your doggy to eat. It's as pure and simple as that!
Jerky and Bones.
WAG Jerky and Bones are dehydrated treats. Almost all of our Jerkies and Bones are sourced from Queensland and Victoria from butchers - steak for you and steak for your doggy, right?!
These treats are dried out long enough to leave an even moisture content that is shelf stable (That means the treat can sit in the cupboard without going all moudly!) During this process no preservatives or additives are added, only water content is removed!
Once we receive the treaties, they are packed into bags or shrink wrapped into plastic and they're ready to go for your doggy!
