Why K9 CRACK?
The K9 CRACK pack has been making organic dog treats since 2007. It all started when my husband and I rescued three Pitbull/Rottweiler puppies. The mother was neglected, and the puppies were covered in fleas at 6 days old. It was heartbreaking. We worked with the owner and cared for the mother and puppies to ensure that they would find good homes ... and, of course, one of the puppies picked us to be her family.
Jazzy Jasmine was pretty easy to train as puppies go, however there is always a time when we pet parents need a high value dog treat to reward our pups but I couldn't find any training treats that didn't contain sugar, salt, preservatives or fillers. I was gobsmacked, what?! So I started making my own, they were made with organic ingredients from our fridge and Jazzy and her friends loved them. As we lived on the North Shore of Oahu we gave them Hawaiian names such as Huli Huli Chicken, Kalua Pig and Hale'iwa Pizza (that was a really tasty cheese treat!). Then Annie Suite and Pamela Boyer asked if I would like to sell at the Hale'iwa Farmers Market and that's where our small business started. We chose the name HawaiiDoggyStyle (risky but memorable) and we established a successful dog treat business in Hale'iwa, Hawaii.
Our most successful product was a beef liver treat called K9 Crack, we marketed it as a treat for fussy dogs, however, it transpired that all dogs loved K9 Crack, and it proved to be a highly effective training treat for even the most distracted and unmotivated dogs. So when we moved to Roseburg, Oregon in 2014 we decided to rebrand ourselves after our best selling product, and re-launch ourselves in 2019 as K9 CRACK - Single Ingredient Dog Treats.
We now specialize in dog nutrition and healthy lifestyles. We use locally sourced, free range, beef and pork organ meat because we support our local farmers and communities. Having the best nutrition is paramount for a healthier, longer more active life, and staying active is so much more fun with a dog.
Our goal is to provide a superior taste experience for our customers, and value for their hooman parents.
Here is Jazzy Jasmine, the muse and icon on our logos. She was a Pitbull/Rottweiler mix; smart, obedient, and totally cool surfer and dropzone dog. She was a Therapy Dog who I would often take to schools to meet the kids, and she would smooze and show off her repertoire of tricks, much to their delight. The only thing she refused to do was run with me. In those days I was an avid triathlete, however she was always ready go hiking and swimming. She was one cool pup, and I am forever grateful for what she taught me about dogs, etiquette, and training. RIP Jazzy 6/27/2007-8/30/2017
