A successful freelance food stylist, Fiona Rigg loves all things organic, natural and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Based in Red Hill, with a shed converted into a state of the art commercial kitchen that oozes style, charm and warmth, Fiona has used her business acumen, design skills, understanding of food and love of dogs to turn a passion into a business.
Fiona saw a gap in the dog treat market. She enjoys eating healthy food, so why not provide a healthy treat for your favourite pooches? She identified the common ailments for dogs – stinky breath, a lack lustre coat, achy joints, and developed a range of healthy treats to deal with these issues. She has six products in her range, with four items forming the core, plus a Pup’s First Treat and Dog Chips made of dehydrated liver to which she adds chia seeds. She uses turmeric in her Zen Doggie Treats which is vegan, and great for joint pain, circulation and brain health, she added chia seeds to her Chicken Chia-Licious Treats (which dogs absolutely love) and she uses all organic ingredients including organic coconut oil and 100% Pure essential oil of Spearmint in her Woof Fresh Treat as well as parsley and activated charcoal which are great for the gut and breath (and a stinky butt), is also vegan. Her Deep Sea Treats are quite fishy, and she has added flax seeds which are great for the skin and coat. All PAWDinkum treats are tested on humans for quality control! PAWDinkum is now available online via pawdinkum.com.au, and ask for it by name at your local vet and favourite gourmet grocer.
