Our family's pack consists of three rescue children. Levi, a Shepherd mix and my first born son. Grace a Shepherd mix and the daughter I never had. Then unexpectedly came Kuma, a Doberman and my sweet grand daughter (my human son's pup) and we all became one big happy family. All three were rescued out of California and each with there own story, insecurities and issues. All three are individually my favorites, I love them all the same no more no less.
I assured each of them when they transplanted to Connecticut that their past would not define them and that they were going to live their best lives out here in the country. Lives filled with love, happiness, adventure and stability. They were going to be spoiled and never want for anything. (Just like it should be for all the pets in this world). I love them all so much and selfishly want a long lifetime of memories and my best chance of them living forever is regular exercise, emotional wellness and healthy diet consisting of clean eating.
That's when I committed to educating myself on the very ingredients that went into our dogs food and treats . Our pack eats a nutrionally balanced raw diet and I know that is not for everyone, but it is what we choose. After watching the docu series "Pet Fooled" which was life changing. I had to do better for my pack. How could I not - now that I was actually aware of what really goes into making commerical pet food/kibble. As for treats, I was not liking what I was seeing and not seeing many healthy options. So I decided to take matters into my own hands literally and began hand making dog treats, so I would know what they were eating was healthy. It was during these endless hours of hard work over the years that the dream of Dog and Hen came to be. High quality Gourmet Pet Treats not only for spoiled dogs and cats but for every dog and cat. With ingredients sourced in the U.S.A. and handmade in Connecticut, we began to deliver that dream.
Our Chicken Jerky is made from 100% U.S.D.A. Boneless Chicken Breast. No steroids, No hormones, No antibiotics, ever. No artificial ingredients, No added salt or preservatives. We like simple ingredients and we like things done right. Our batches are made small, so that we maintain our stringent standards to produce high quality treats for all pups to enjoy.
We didn't want to do what everyone else was doing. So our Pack Chefs here at "Dog and Hen" worked really hard at creating a "Gourmet" feed line that sets our pet treats apart from the others. We "Specialize" in "Gourmet Chicken Jerky ". That's what we do best. Our product line consists of four of our favorite marinade blends that you will find "ONLY ON OUR MENU".
Clean and healthy treats, that's our Promise from our pups to yours. In fact we know your pups will taste the difference and we know this because "Our treats are so good they will give your pup something to bark about"!
Your purchase helps us continue to support rescue organizations near and dear to our heart in the hopes that one day every dog will have a chance at a good life, never be subjected to abuse, never know what going hungry means and most importantly, have a loving place to call home.
We do monthly treat mailings and deliveries to our partnered rescues, animal control and K-9 officers to help put a smile on a lucky dogs face.
If you know a deserving dog tell us their story on our Facebook page and we will enter their name into our monthly drawing for a free Chicken Jerky treat bag.
We also donate and repurpose old/new dog houses to dogs who do not have adequate shelter and are forced to live life outside, to no fault of their own. If you have a old doghouse that is in good condition and wish to donate to a dog in need please message us to arrange pick up. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will be donated in your pups name.

Thank you for your Chicken and Sweet Potato Treats. As Mom predicted we ate the entire bag in one day.Connecticut
I am so happy I found Dog and Hen today at the No. Stonington Fair. My fur baby has allergies so I am very careful what I feed her. Dog and Hen only use natural ingredients so this was perfect and my fur baby loves the Apple Rosemary Chicken Jerky. Thank you for making "clean" dog treats.Connecticut
Sawyer absolutely loves his new treats that we picked up at the No. Stonington Fair!James HenleyConnecticut
We bought a couple of bags of Chicken and Sweet Potato Jerky for our three very happy dogs. They are very picky with treats and they would have liked to eat them all in one day. Took them five days to get them out of me. I have to order more as they bark at me until I go to the cupboard. Unreal!Connecticut
