'Wacky treats for waggy tails' Fun, home-made treats for dogs made with fresh ingredients and carefully selected alternatives to modern wheat.
Hello there and welcome to Four Legged Fancies!
I created 'Four Legged Fancies' as I am obviously dog mad, but more importantly I was concerned about the junk that goes into some pet foods. Many dog treats on the market might look nice and tasty but many of them contain high amounts of sugar, salt, preservatives and poor quality animal by-products all of which can lead to an unhealthy pooch.
All of my treats are made with healthy, natural ingredients and kept as low fat as possible with no added sugar, salt, butter or preservatives. I use 'non-wheat' flour such as oat, barley, rye and spelt flour as an alternative to normal wheat flour, please see my 'ingredient no-no's' to see my discussion on wheat.
I think the best part of treating your dogs is not only doing it with something tasty but also with something that is fun for the owner, this is why most of my treats are a bit barmy such as my 'Bangers N' Mash pupcakes' or my 'Doggy Donuts'. These treats make fun and original gifts for dog owners and are a great way to say 'Thank You' or 'Happy Birthday' to a special doggy mad friend!
My love for dogs started early as my family have trained Guide Dogs for over 30 yrs and I was surrounded by playful puppies from a young age. Throughout my life I have always worked with animals in one sense or another be it as a Jaguar rehabilitator in Bolivia or as a search dog handler for the National bats and wind turbines project here in the UK (see the beautiful search dog Ozzie above).
I have plenty of experience with dogs however if you have a specialist doggy related enquiry then please get in touch with any of the people listed on the 'FLF Friends' page. Here you will find a whole host of trained professionals who can offer their services as trainers, walkers and groomers.
So welcome to the site, head on in to find a great list of fun products to suit even the pickiest of pooches. Also listed is information regarding any upcoming shows and farmers markets I will be attending, hopefully I will see you at a show but if not then happy shopping :-)
