More and more we are recognizing that dogs have allergies and sensitivities to certain food items just like us humans. To make healthy dog treats available to dogs who may suffer from wheat sensitivity, we chose to make several of our treats wheat free. Our Mother Quinoa’s Pumpkin Patch, Five-Star Blueberry, The Kelp Highway, and Powerhouse are all wheat free dog treats. Max & Ruffy’s wheat free dog treats are different than most grain free and wheat free dog treats on the market. How? Max & Ruffy’s dog treats are all vegetarian dog treats. This makes Max & Ruffy’s a great alternative to the all meat based treats on the market. Incorporating vegetables & fruits expands your dog’s sources of nutrients that may be neglected from all meat based sources. This also will lessen the opportunity to develop allergies and sensitivities that is often seen when there is a lack of varied nutrient sources.
Try Max & Ruffy’s wheat-free dog treats and expand the variety of nutrient sources in your dog’s diet.
What makes a dog treat nutritious? To us at Max & Ruffy’s, we believe selecting the right ingredients create nutritious dog treats. Ingredients that lend benefits to a dog’s overall health versus just serving as an empty snack. We also believe that a varied diet is important in maintaining optimal health. Offering nutritious dog treats that contain ingredients that he/she might not get in their normal daily intake can help your dog achieve overall well-being. This contributes to the intake of various nutrients that might otherwise be lost if not supplemented or offered through alternative food or snack choices. If feeding nutritious dog treats is your goal, then you can feel confident in choosing Max & Ruffy’s nutritious dog treats. We make it easy – just pick your dog’s favorite flavors!
If organic dog treats are what you are looking for, then look no further! Max & Ruffy’s offers healthy dog treats made of 100% certified organic ingredients. When we developed Max & Ruffy’s, we wanted to create the most nutritious dog treats available. To achieve this we chose to use strictly healthy, organic ingredients to make the best organic dog treats available. Organic dog treats mean that the ingredients used are free from genetically modified organisms (GMO), pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or sewage sludge. We carefully select our ingredients and source from companies that we trust. We believe that by choosing organic dog treats you can help to keep your dog healthy in both body and mind.

Our treat recipes will always be crafted to offer a treat that will appeal to your dog’s taste buds while offering nutritional benefits that will lend to your dog’s health and well-being. For example, our Powerhouse: Sweet Potato & Alfalfa treat is packed full of nutrition. Sweet potatoes are a known powerhouse (this is how we named this treat) that offer the immune boosting properties of beta-carotene, phosphorous, vitamin C, B-complex & iron. Alfalfa, commonly known as the “father of all foods,” is one of the richest mineral foods. This immune boosting plant contains all known vitamins, digestive enzymes, eight amino acids and chlorophyll, which promote proper digestion and fresh breath. The antibacterial, antioxidant and antifungal properties of alfalfa have been said to help provide relief from arthritis pain and aid in healing intestinal ulcers, gastritis, liver disorders and cancer.

What Max & Ruffy’s believes a dog treat should be…
So, you’re looking for dog treats for your dog that are healthy, satisfying, and definitely tasty, but you want to avoid unnecessary fillers and harmful additives, right? Well, we have the solution for you. Max & Ruffy’s dog treats are comprised of simple, healthy ingredients that you would find in any health food store.

Like The Kelp Highway, all Max & Ruffy’s dog treats are comprised of carefully chosen ingredients to help your dog maintain a healthy and happy life!
Making the decision to offer your dog(s) natural dog treats that are made using only pure human grade ingredients without chemical additives is what it means to feed natural dog treats. The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), a voluntary membership association of local, state and federal agencies charged by law to regulate the sale and distribution of animal feeds and animal drug remedies, the term “natural” means:
“a feed or ingredient derived solely from plant, animal or mined sources, either in its unprocessed state or having been subject to physical processing, heat processing, rendering, purification, extraction, hydrolysis, enzymolysis or fermentation, but not having been produced by or subject to a chemically synthetic process and not containing any additives or processing aids that are chemically synthetic except in amounts as might occur unavoidably in good manufacturing practices.”
That being stated, a treat that has chemicals added to it would not be considered natural. Here at Max & Ruffy’s, we are sticklers for using only pure, simple, organic ingredients in our products. No chemicals, no additives, no anything you can’t pronounce, just nutritious ingredients from the earth. We strongly beleive that feeding Max & Ruffy’s treats can lend to the total well-being of your companion thereby helping to keep him/her healthy for the future and potentially saving you money on costly vet bills that are often associated with treats and/or diets that contain unnatural preservatives, additives and artificial colorings and flavors.
We hope that this information can help you in making an informed decision regarding the treats that you offer to your companion. Feed natural dog treats, treat with Max & Ruffy’s and contribute to your companion’s well-being!

100% Organic Dog Treats
Offering 100% organic dog treats is extremely important to us. Just as we feed our bodies with organic ingredients we also feed our companions with as organically as possible. So, when we were developing our recipes choosing to have them comprised of organic ingredients was a top priority.
Why is producing only 100% organic dog treats so important to Max & Ruffy’s? First off, organically produced foods are better for our companion’s overall health by not being produced with synthetic pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers and sewage sludge-based fertilizers. Evidence based research shows that pesticides, chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides, have been linked to a variety of health issues including a weakened immune system. Think of this as your companion’s first line of defense to fight off anything he or she is presented with. Maintaining a strong immune system is key in a long healthy life. Secondly, organic farming practices reduce pollution (air, water, soil), conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. In addition, organic farming is better for birds and small animals, since chemical pesticides can make it hard for birds and small animals to reproduce and can even kill them. It is also better for the people who harvest our food which is a great priority for Max & Ruffy’s. Thirdly, organic food just taste better allowing Max & Ruffy’s to make the best dog treats available on the market!
The bottom line is that creating healthy dog treats to us means using organic ingredients. We are proud to be a company that is conscious of our ingredients and the sources they come from. Our goal is to bring you and your companion the best organic dog treats to contribute to the health and well-being of your dog.
