ABOUT BONZA DOG TREATS
All the doggie people we know treat their dogs like a member of their family - we certainly do - and you are probably just the same.
You buy the best food you can, and you're looking for healthy treats - treats that will keep your dogs teeth clean, their coat nice and shiny and that taste great too.
You can trust our advice, Julie's Diploma in Canine Health & Nutrition gives an understanding which you won't find at the big box retailer.
The dehydrated meat and fish treats we sell are selected from quality Australian companies - we are proud members of the Australian Made campaign. It is important to us to support other Australian businesses, and we know our customers value that approach.
When you choose our meat and fish treats, you are choosing functional ingredient Australian treats, not just packaged here, but real Australian produce.
We do all the hard work for you, sourcing all our treats from Australian businesses supporting Aussie farmers and fishermen.
Bonza Dog Treats supply the best all natural healthy Australian dog treats. Raw, nutritious, wholefood air dried treats, absolutely no nasties. Treats that contribute to your dogs wellbeing, that you can be confident are exactly what they say they are.
Not all treats are created equally!
Our dehydrated meat and fish treats are single ingredient 100% Australian produce, other than the green lipped mussels which are sourced from New Zealand. They are slowly air dried to preserve nutritional value.
All our meat and fish treats are handpicked by a qualified canine nutritionist. They are species appropriate, functional ingredients, real meat and fish, not meat meal.
There are no preservatives, colours or sweeteners used in our treats, and as they are all 100% Australian, you can rest assured they haven't been chemically treated when imported.
These treats are especially suited to raw feeders, and our Moo Tubes and Beef Toe Nails can be used to add enrichment to mealtimes.
Many people do not realise that a lot of treats available for sale in Australia are packaged here, but the meat is imported. Many treats are imported from China, where quality control and animal husbandry are not comparable to our own standards.
By buying Australian treats, you are buying a quality product for your dog, and supporting Australian farmers and related businesses.
You may see glycerin included in the ingredients list of meat treats (and jerky) available in supermarkets and big box retailers. You can read more about this in our blog post here.
When you buy from us, you can be certain that all our dehydrated meat and fish treats are 100% Australian, 100% natural, 100% preservative free.
Our baked treats are just that - treats - but they still don't contain preservatives, additives, colours, sugar or flavouring.
They are made with human grade ingredients and a lot of love, just for you.
Our gourmet biscuits and baked treats are hand baked to order in NSW using locally obtained produce. We blend our own peanut butter using Australian peanuts, roast Australian pumpkin and sweet potato, and make our own nutritious bone broths using Australian meat and fish.
The only ingredients we use which are specifically for dogs are our icing and colours. These are obtained from specialist manufacturers and are formulated for dogs and are entirely natural.
Some of our baked treats are grain free, gluten free or vegan.
We are committed to providing the best Aussie treats for your furry family member.
Yes, our raw meat treats are perfect for teething pups, allow you to redirect inappropriate chewing and encourage proper chewing habits.
Our Training Treats are tiny, so perfect for training behaviours with no risk of overfeeding.
We have our own Puppy Chew Bundle which contains a variety of treats which are suitable for puppies, and allow you to try several different treats without the need to purchase full size packs.
Our treats which need to be packaged are presented in clear plastic stand up bags. These have two seals, a heat seal and a zipper seal to ensure the treats reach you in the best condition possible. They are BPA free. Unfortunately they are unable to be recycled at this time due to the suspension of Redcycle.
These bags fit perfectly with our ethos of being completely transparent. Nothing annoys me more than an overprinted bag where the contents are invisible - sure, they look prettier than our bags - let's be honest, dehydrated treats aren't pretty, but most of us want to see what we're buying.
Our outer packaging varies depending on the size of the order. Bubble mailers are recyclable in your kerbside recycling bins. We sometimes use cardboard boxes, and often use cardboard to protect items within satchels or bubble mailers. This cardboard is being recycled from the packaging our stock is delivered in.
The packing peanuts we use are made from cornstarch, they are biodegradable and dissolve in water.
ABOUT OUR TREATS
Yes, all our meat and treats are 100% Australian produce, other than Green Lipped Mussels whichare imported from New Zealand.
No, our meat and fish treats are 100% natural. There are no preservatives, additives, flavours, colours or anything else added to the treats. They are 100% meat or fish which has been slowly dehydrated to preserve it.
All our meat and fish treats have a best before date of at least 12 months - but we don't think you'll have them that long, as your dog will love them.
Exposure to heat or humidity may mean that your treats will spoil, so they should be kept in a cool dry place, and in a sealed container.
All our treats are natural, and the appearance may vary from one batch to another.
It may have been dried in a different dehydrator, it could be the difference between grain fed and grass fed cattle, we may have sourced from a different supplier.
Whatever the reason, you can be sure that the treats are just as good as last time.
There are 2 ways which will help you choose the pawfect treats for your dog.
When you click on the menu heading SHOP FOR DOG TREATS you will see a drop down menu of catogories, where you can choose treats by collection eg Treats for Dental Health, Low Fat Treats, Treats for Dogs That Chew etc.
Also, on each product page, underneath the name of the chew you will see a short description of the type of dog the treat will suit eg For Puppies and Small Dogs or Novel Protein for Dogs With Allergies.
A natural toothbrush and great for digestive health, furry treats might not appeal to bipeds, but your dog will love them.
Retaining the fur has particular benefits as it helps to clean the digestive tract, is a source of fibre and assists with emptying the dogs anal glands.
Cleaning the digestive tract also helps your dog to better absorb the nutrients in their food.
Finally, by improving the digestive tract, the immune system is also improved - gut health is linked to immune health in dogs just as it is in humans.
We have a collection of training treats here.
This includes our unique hand baked training treats, and some meat and fish treats which are pawfect for training, such as kangaroo leg cubes, duck jerky and lamb crumble. From high value to novel protein, there's sure to be a treat for your dog.
Many of our treats are available in 100g packs to enable you to purchase a small size if you're not sure if your dog will enjoy them
We also have a great selection of variety packs which are themed eg Taste of the Ocean, We're All Ears, which have a range of treats in the pack for your dog to try before choosing a full size pack.
You can find our variety packs here
