Pet Me Happy FAQ
Q: The first Pet Me Happy FAQ question: Just what IS Pet Me Happy?
A: Pet Me Happy is a California-based retailer of all-natural treats for dogs, and soon, cats. We feature our all-natural Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries. Pet lovers can purchase directly from the Pet Me Happy online store, with secure transactions via PayPal, fast shipping, and our excellent, personalized customer service, or at select retail outlets in the Santa Clarita, California area.
Q: Who’s minding the online store?
A: Lennon the Pet Me Happy Canine Mascot and Batman the Pet Me Happy Feline Mascot help their crazy pet parents mind PetMeHappy.com. Along with their early partner Paige Hagen, they opened the Pet Me Happy store in 2016. Lennon and Batman provide direction and then sleep while their humans do all the work.
Q: Do I have to pay sales tax?
A: Only if you’re a resident of California (where Pet Me Happy is based).
Q: How long will it take to receive my order?
A: We process your order within 24 hours, and ship via USPS standard ground shipping. That generally takes 3-5 days to reach you, depending on your location.
Q: Do you ship outside the United States?
A: Yes. There may be additional shipping charges, and you’re responsible for any customs fees due at the time of delivery.
Artisan Dog Treats FAQ
Q: What do you mean by “artisan” dog treats?
A: We call them “artisan” because our all-natural treats were created with love by the hands of a gifted artisan baker — Pet Me Happy co-founder Nadine Peeples — in her own kitchen.
And now our Artisan Dog Treats are baked in slightly bigger batches by health-conscious, pet-loving humans in a small Los Angeles-area bakery — not by automatons producing mass quantities of cheap, not-so-natural treats in a huge commercial factory.
Q: What inspired you to develop your Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries?
A: Pet Me Happy’s founders were shocked at all the bad stuff in commercial pet treats made in other countries and even in the States. But we refused to poison our pets or anyone else’s pets with those products. So the Pet Me Happy founders developed the blueberry dog treats recipe in their home kitchen in Santa Clarita, California.
We tested the recipe and taste-tested the first treats ourselves. If they weren’t good enough for us, they weren’t good enough for their pets. In our first field tests, dog parents loved the treats because they were all-natural, didn’t smell bad, and didn’t make their dogs fart.
Then we took our recipe to a health-conscious, pet-crazy treats baker in Los Angeles County who loved our recipe and helped us refine it, and voila! Pet Me Happy’s Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries are now available at PetMeHappy.com. And we’re working hard to bring them to pet stores and other retail outlets in California and beyond in the near future.
Q: What ingredients are in your Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries?
A: Only 10 ingredients: organic spelt flour, whole oat flour, apple juice, Oregon blueberries, egg, natural blueberry flavor, chamomile, green tea leaves, flax seed oil, mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E) as a natural preservative. The ingredients are all natural. No artificial anything. And no wheat, corn or soy.
Q: What is organic spelt flour?
A: Spelt is one of the most popular whole-grain, non-wheat flours among bakers around the world, and one of the oldest cultivated crops in human history. It’s believed to have first been used in baking recipes between 7,000 and 8,000 years ago.
Spelt flour is loaded with vitamins, nutrients and other essential organic compounds that other cereals and forms of wheat don’t have.
Spelt has fewer calories, more protein and less fiber than wheat flour, and is easy to digest.
Health-conscious bakers in the United Kingdom and Europe, particularly Spain, and more recently the United States are returning to spelt as a healthier alternative to wheat.
Q: Are blueberries good for my dog?
A: Absolutely! Before canines were domesticated, they often foraged for fruits and vegetables to eat. Dogs get the same kinds of health benefits from blueberries as humans. We invite you to read this original Pet Me Happy article about blueberries – Why Dogs Love Blueberries and Blueberry Treats.
