Good Grace’s Dog Treats is a home-based business, owned and operated by Blair McKinney in Cary, NC, under the supervision of her two Australian Cattle Dogs, McGee and Shelbi. We are currently selling our treats at four local farmer’s markets: Midtown Farmer’s Market (North Hills Mall in Raleigh), the Holly Springs Farmer’s Market, the Vega Metals Art Market (at the Durham Farmer’s Market) and the WakeMed Farmer’s Market (Raleigh Campus) as well as on our website shipping to anywhere in the continental United States.
At Good Grace’s, our treats are hand made using only ingredients you can pronounce (although Quinoa can be tricky!), with no added chemicals, colorings or preservatives. Wherever possible, we reduce the amount of salt, sugar and fat in our recipes. For example, our bacon treat, “Piggly Wigglies”, have chunks of real bacon but we opt to use lower sodium bacon, our “Say Cheese!” treat is made with reduced fat cheddar cheese. Two of our treats, “Mr. Green Beans” and “Bark Bark”, call for chicken broth and we bake with 99% fat free, low sodium broth.
We also sneak in ingredients that have specific health benefits for our dogs. For instance, our “Say Cheese!” treats contain fish oil for a healthy, shiny coat and to help fend off arthritis. “Bark Bark” has dried cranberries to promote urinary tract health. “Tumbleweeds” features fresh zucchini which is highly rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, and provides many health benefits including heart health and anti-cancer properties. “Mr. Green Beans” are chock full of green beans which are a great source of fiber and can help dogs lose weight by boosting their metabolism. The list goes on and on…carrots, sweet potatoes, acorn squash, bananas, blueberries, apples, carob, quinoa, salmon, pumpkin…
We are proud to offer Grain-Free, Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free and Vegetarian treats!
