Wagatha's cranberry cheddar mintWagatha’s™ sent me a complementary 9 oz. can of their Cranberry with Cheddar & Mint organic dog biscuits (pictured left)  for Astrid and Dash to test out. I had heard of Wagatha’s from working at The Chic Petique, and so I knew that they were a premium brand of dog biscuits made in the USA (in Vermont, actually!).

Wagatha’s – The Buzz Behind the Biscuit

Back in the late 90′s founders Neil Reilly and Norman Levitz each moved to Vermont in the hopes of escaping the crazy daily grind and find a better place to decompress and enjoy his family. Neil was searching for the right opportunity to partner with someone to build a company with integrity, humor, and friendship.  Norman, who had been making dog treats since the 70′s, was the perfect fit.  It was a basketball game that brought the two men together and they began to realize the potential of a partnership.  They knew that Wagatha’s Dog Biscuits would be made with only the highest quality, healthy, organic ingredients. The best of the best.

Wagatha’s – The Review

But would Astrid eat it?  Would Dash eat it?

The Cranberry with Cheddar & Mint biscuits contain the following certified organic ingredients:

Whole barley flour, whole oat flour, canola oil, dried cranberries, cracked flax seed, brown rice flour, white cheddar cheese, whole eggs, spearmint, rosemary oil.

With only a handful of teeth left in her mouth, I was a little worried that she wouldn’t be able to break apart the biscuit. She’s also famous for refusing to eat anything that is remotely healthy or good for her.  So, when I put the biscuit in front of her and she began sniffing, I started to worry she would turn up her nose.  She paused, and then snatched that little biscuit up and ran away with it!  A minute later, she had completely polished it off.

Dash, who has been on a strict diet, gave it a few sniffs and walked away.  Which totally shocked me.  And so Astrid weaseled her way in and began to eat the rest of it.  Which suddenly sparked Dash’s interest in the biscuit, and he ran over and snatched the remaining piece.  Go figure.
