About Boulder Dog Food Company LLC

The business was started in Boulder, Colorado in 2004. Initially the company made a high quality dog food with bison as the primary protein ingredient, but then gradually transitioned into making 100% meat treats. Today the bakery in Boulder produces both canine and feline treats made from a variety of all meat or all fish ingredients. Bison products, made from bison meat as well as organs such as liver, heart and lung, continue to be among the most popular products. Bison is found to be a good meat choice for animals suffering from food allergies or intolerances since it is thought to be less likely to produce an immune response. Equally important, the bison come from free ranging herds in the western states. The meat and organs from grass-fed animals contain significant amounts of healthier unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E and iron. Its high protein, low fat profile is a more nutritionally healthy meat choice for both humans as well as our canine and feline companions. And grass-fed ranching is not only good for the animals, it’s good for the environment.
