Who We Are: Stewart and Whiskey

Who We Are: Stewart and Whiskey

Thank you for continuing to support our small business. Everything we sell goes through the Carey headquarters - not another factory, not a co-packer - and it is IDAHOUND employees making those mouth-watering meals one pound at a time. In the spirit of celebrating community, we wanted to begin introducing IDAHOUND's team (and their dogs, of course!) through the newsletter. Our first short interview is with Stewart, who has been with us for three years. His eight-year-old Pit bull, Whiskey, comes howling to work nearly ever day.

The Tazi has long been prized as a bread-winner (or meat-winner) by Central Asian Nomads, with similar-looking dogs depicted in petroglyphs and bodies found in graves over three-thousand years old.

Green Tripe is Food as Dog Intended

Your dog's gut is a complicated space. Give it some care with a true super food! What does tripe do? A well-functioning digestive system needs to be equipped with nourishing bacteria, enzymes, and other gastric juices to efficiently break down and utilize food. Even a dog on a well-balanced raw diet can benefit from probiotics, which are live micro-organisms that restore gut flora.
