At Chewy Louie®, we take pride in making the best dog treats and chews you can find at your local store. So, how does a premium chew get made? Chewy Louie treats start with carefully-sourced, premium ingredients that are cooked to perfection.
Our commitment to providing the best quality ingredients, in every facet of the word, is always a top priority at Chewy Louie®. Most of the Chewy Louie products are sourced and processed in the USA at our Kansas plant. Our ears and bones are sourced in the USA and Canada. The sourcing of items from the United States is important and contributes to high-quality pet products. However, we find that the importance of sourcing U.S. products can vary by ingredients. At times, ingredients from abroad can be found to be of higher quality than ingredients found in the United States. Due to the lack of premium bully sticks in the USA, we source our bully sticks from Colombia, Brazil, Paraguay, New Zealand, Peru, or Turkey, where the cows are free-range and grass fed. We have high standards, so if we wouldn’t give it to our pets, we wouldn’t give it to yours.
Our Quality Assurance Procedures
At Chewy Louie®, quality is #1. Our Quality Assurance standards ensure we never cut corners. We have strict specifications in our factories to ensure that every day, the freshest and safest product goes out our doors for your dog.
At Chewy Louie, we work hard to ensure that we manufacture the highest quality and safest dog treats. We invest time and money into our quality assurance programs like purchasing new machinery, hiring skilled and educated staff, and utilizing up-to-date and improved processing and testing protocols to make the safest dog treats on the market. At the end of the day, we want to do good by you and your dog.
Safety Comes First in Our Factories
Chewy Louie® operates under HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) principles in both of our processing facilities. Our HACCP program includes multiple required programs specifically designed for our facility and the products we produce. Product analysis, raw material analysis, production and environmental monitoring, and facility audits support the HACCP program. We take care of everything in your dog’s chews to ensure they’re safe, so you don’t have to.
Chewy Louie® maintains three fully equipped labs: one devoted to physical and chemical testing of materials and product, one for microbiological testing, and one dedicated to product development. Our in-house labs are set up to test pH, moisture levels, water activity levels and salt levels as well as perform microbiological tests such as aerobic plate counts, anaerobic plate counts, coliform counts and Salmonella screening. We utilize an outside ISO accredited laboratory for additional biological and chemical testing, for verification of our procedures and tests results, and for special projects. That means that we have a third-party come audit our procedures to independently verify that we make safe products. Every product that we manufacture in both our Kansas and Paraguay plants is subjected to our high-quality control standards.
At Chewy Louie®, we take pride in the care and attention that goes into each and every treat and food item. When you buy a Chewy Louie dog chew, you’re getting the best product at the best price. Day in and day out, we make great products for great dogs like yours.
