“While many people have made the paleo diet an integral part of their lifestyles there was a hole in the market when it came to dogs. These treats offer conscientious owners the chance to give their pups a treat without sacrificing the dog’s health,” says Mr. Ratner, the owner of the I’d Rather Be with My Dog brand.

I’d Rather Be with My Dog’s new paleo treats are completely in line with the Paleolithic Diet, which means the treats are gluten, soy, and dairy free. The philosophy of the Paleo Diet is all about staying in line with the kind of natural foods likely eaten by humans and animals prior to the advent of agriculture and domesticated animals.

The new treats will be the first Paleo dog treats on the market. These are available for purchase directly from I’d Rather Be with My Dog’s website for a limited time, before expanding to pet stores across the country. They are made in the U.S.A.

The dog treats are just the latest in I’d Rather Be with My Dog’s expanding product line, which started with t-shirts, sweatshirts, and tank-tops a little more than a year ago. In recent months the company’s online store has begun to offer mousepads, car magnets, and smartphone cases.

Keeping in line with the company’s philosophy of giving back to the community of animals and animal lovers, 10% of all sales of the treats will be donated to the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. The Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation is a nonprofit located in Bloomfield, Connecticut and a guide dog training school in New England.

If you are the proprietor of a store that would like to carry the I’d Rather Be with My Dog Paleo Dog Treats you are encouraged to email Doug directly,[email protected]. The company is encouraging customers to ask local retailers about the treats and encourage them to order now.
