Our pets live such short lives in comparison to ours and everyone wants to maximize their pet's longevity and wellness. You can accomplish this by providing your pet with species-appropriate nutrition. However, selecting a food for your pet is never an easy task, especially when you desperately want to make the right decision. After being bombarded by commercials that play on your emotions and hearing frightening news reports about pet food and treat recalls, how do you go about selecting a safe and healthy pet food? The Green Barn Whole Animal Nutrition has dedicated itself to taking the guess work out of the process by ONLY offering products that have been well-researched by reputable sources and most importantly, tested by our own dogs and cats. We are fully committed to making your pet’s health, safety, and comfort our only priority.

NEW PRODUCTS

We are always looking for the BEST and most innovative products to provide for our customers and we have added quite a few lately. 

  • OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ PHILOSOPHY

    DOGS AND CATS ARE BUILT LIKE THEIR ANCESTORS. WE BELIEVE THEY SHOULD EAT LIKE THEM TOO.

    ba-logo

    Evolved as hunters, the physical structure of their teeth, jaws and digestive system scientifically classify dogs and cats as carnivores, evolved over thousands of years to operate on an almost exclusively meat-based diet.

    The Biologically Appropriate™ concept is simple: Mirror the richness, freshness and variety of meats that dogs and cats would naturally hunt in the wild and for which they are evolved to eat.

    That’s why ORIJEN foods feature exceptionally high inclusions of fresh whole meats, plus richly nourishing liver, tripe, cartilage and marrow — all in ratios that mirror the natural diet, while excluding high-glycemic carbohydrates and plant proteins that simply don’t belong in the diets of dogs and cats.

  • OUR 5 BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PRINCIPLES

  • 1. RICH IN MEAT 
     

    arrow

    FROM GREAT DANES TO CHIHUAHUAS, ALL MODERN DOGS CARRY THE SAME EVOLUTIONARY ORIGIN AND GENETIC MAKE-UP AS THE GRAY WOLF.

    By all scientific standards your dog is a domesticated wolf. So it’s no surprise that dogs of all breeds are not only capable of eating the food of their ancestors, but actually require it for peak health.

    Just like their wild cousins, our companion dogs and cats are evolved as carnivores, equipped with sharp teeth and anatomical features adapted to metabolize proteins and fats from meats — not plant and grain derivatives.

    That’s why Biologically Appropriate™ ORIJEN features a full 80% of nourishing meats, over half of which are delivered to our kitchens fresh each day to more closely mirror the foods Mother Nature evolved dogs and cats to eat.

  • 2. MEAT DIVERSITY 
     

    arrow

    CONSIDER THE VARIETY IN THE NATURAL DIET: A NEST OF EGGS TODAY, A DUCK OR GOOSE TOMORROW, FRESH FISH THE NEXT. MOTHER NATURE PROVIDES A DIVERSITY OF PROTEINS AND FATS ESSENTIAL TO THE PEAK HEALTH OF DOGS AND CATS.

    Unmatched by any other pet food, Biologically Appropriate™ ORIJEN features FRESH WHOLE MEATS—including organs, cartilage and marrow from a diversity of cage-free poultry, nest-laid eggs, free-range red meats and wild-caught fish.

    Yet this variety is lost in conventional pet foods, which typically feature a single animal ingredient, such as chicken or lamb, that’s highly processed and seldom fresh.

    ORIJEN features an unmatched diversity of cage-free poultry, nest-laid eggs, ranch-raised red meats and wild-caught fish to mirror the natural diet and nourish your dog or cat completely.

  • 3. MEAT FRESHNESS 
     

    arrow

    AUTHENTICALLY FRESH POULTRY, EGGS, FISH AND MEATS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ FOODS.

    That’s because fresh meats are in a natural unprocessed state, and provide the diversity of richly nourishing proteins and fats needed for peak conditioning, as well as the natural flavors dogs and cats instinctively crave.

    Unmatched by any pet food maker, our authentically fresh ingredients mirror the natural diet, supplying essential nutrients in their most natural, complete and nourishing form.

  • 4. LOW CARBOHYDRATE, LOW GLYCEMIC 
     

    arrow

    PET LOVERS ARE OFTEN UNAWARE OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PROTEIN AND CARBOHYDRATES IN THEIR FOOD. YET IT’S QUITE SIMPLE: IF ONE GOES UP, THE OTHER GOES DOWN.

    The more protein in the food, the less room for carbohydrates. And that’s good. Because while protein is essential, dogs and cats have no requirement for carbohydrates. In fact, for dogs and cats, carbohydrates are ‘empty calories’ that provide little nutritional value beyond their controversial energy potential.

    While carbohydrates are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes, conventional pet foods often exceed 50% carbohydrate of total content!

    THE GLYCEMIC INDEX | WHY CARBOHYDRATES ARE NOT CREATED EQUALLY

    SOME CARBOHYDRATES ARE DIGESTED QUICKLY CAUSING BLOOD SUGAR TO RISE RAPIDLY, WHILE OTHERS ARE DIGESTED SLOWLY CAUSING BLOOD SUGAR TO RISE LESS. ENTER THE GLYCEMIC INDEX (GI), A SCIENCE-BASED SYSTEM OF RANKING CARBOHYDRATES FROM 0 TO 100 BASED ON THEIR EFFECT ON BLOOD SUGAR.

    HIGH-GLYCEMIC CARBOHYDRATES such as rice or corn are associated with obesity and diabetes because they digest quickly, causing blood glucose to spike and fat storage to increase.

    LOW-GLYCEMIC CARBOHYDRATES like lentils and chickpeas enter the blood stream slowly, promoting stable blood sugar levels and reducing the potential for fat storage.

    Biologically Appropriate™ ORIJEN features lentils, chickpeas — carbohydrate heroes with GI ratings of 21 and 32 respectively. Compare these to rice at GI 70, corn at GI 65 or sweet potatoes at GI 55.

    WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY ABOUT CARBOHYDRATES

    The National Research Council’s Committee on Animal Nutrition (2012) reports; “There appears to be no requirement for carbohydrates provided enough protein is given”.

  • 5. WHOLE FRUITS, VEGETABLES & BOTANICALS 
     

    arrow

    IN PLACE OF CEREAL GRAINS THAT SPIKE BLOOD SUGARS (SUCH AS RICE OR CORN), ORIJEN FEATURES FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND BERRIES THAT ARE DELIVERED FRESH AND WHOLE FROM LOCAL PRAIRIE FARMS AND BRITISH COLUMBIA’S INTERIOR ORCHARDS.

    While conventional pet foods feature high inclusions of grains or potato and a fraction of fruits and vegetables (usually in powdered form and of unknown origin), ORIJEN features fruits and vegetables that arrive freshly picked from Okanagan and Fraser valley orchards, or plucked from our black prairie soils so they’re loaded with natural goodness

    WHEN LEFT TO THEIR OWN DEVICES, COMPANION DOGS AND CATS INSTINCTIVELY SEEK OUT CERTAIN WEEDS AND PLANTS THAT ENHANCE THEIR LIFE-FORCE.

    ORIJEN’s botanicals mimic the natural diet and serve as tonics and builders to help strengthen organs and tissues in specific parts of the body, and aid in digestion. Botanicals also help the body eliminate toxins by stimulating physiological processes like the cleansing of the liver.

The next is Planet Dog. This dog toy comapny features American-made dog toys backed by a quality guarantee, something you don't find from many other companies. We love that the products smell like mint, too!! That helps keep dog breath nice and fresh! Read more below:

 

 

 

PLANET DOG

Who We Are

We are globally recognized as designers and developers of innovative, high quality, award-winning dog products that enhance the lifestyle people share with their 4-legged best friends. We also innovate philanthropic and values-based programs that support service dog organizations and allow us to help protect the romping grounds we all love. Since day one, we have grown our company based on core values and our commitment to our mission:


To amuse, explore, support, innovate, create,

educate, celebrate and “philanthropate”. . . all in the name of the dog.


A Values-Led Business

Planet Dog is an industry leader in “romping the romp.” Since 2006, our corporate philanthropic arm, the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF), has contributed more than $800,000 in cash and in-kind donations to canine service programs across the country.
Unlike many philanthropic efforts in our industry, we will always give back regardless of our financial strength. And, our giving comes primarily from our sales, not donations from others. In other words, we don’t just facilitate giving, we actually give back using our company‘s revenue. Why do we do this? We’re in business for a cause, not just because.

2% of all purchases of Planet Dog products are donated to PDF, which provides cash grants to programs throughout the country
that train, place and support dogs helping people in need. Service dogs, therapy dogs, police, fire & military dogs, K-9 search & rescue dogs - we celebrate ALL “working” dogs that are enhancing and saving human lives. Thanks to our dog-loving customers, PDF has supported exemplary canine service programs nationwide. Visit www.planetdogfoundation.org to see our grantees whose programs help dogs to help children and adults in need.


“The World’s Best Dog Ball
The majority of our offering consists of award-winning toys for dogs of all ages – from pups to “old souls.” The toys are complemented by all-natural dog treats, collars and leashes, on the go products, human wear, gifts for dogs and dog lovers, and more.

Our impressive growth has been due to the Orbee® Ball. It is made of Planet Dog's eco-friendly, 100% recyclable Orbee-Tuff® compound that was engineered specifically to create the best dog toys on the planet. We worked with our chemists for almost two years to make Orbee-Tuff® into the most durable, pliable, buoyant, bouncy compound on the market. We threw in some peppermint scent to ensure dogs love the smell as much as the feel. It consists of all FDA approved non-toxic ingredients. Toys made of Orbee-Tuff®, as well as all the products we make, come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Best of all, all Orbee-Tuff® toys are made in the U.S.A.

Over the course of our fifteen year history, we have been celebrated for our outstanding innovation and quality. We have been featured on CNN’s On the Rise with Aaron Brown, the Martha Stewart Show, the Today Show, Good Morning America, Parade Magazine, the Sierra Club Magazine, Good Housekeeping, and we were named as a Fast Company Champion of Innovation. In 2009, our Company Store was named Yankee Magazine’s Best Store to Woof About.

Over the years, we have been honored with numerous major awards.

We were named to Outside Magazine’s 2008 Best Places to Work List, which recognizes selected employers throughout the country who provide a great work environment, promote environmentally friendly business practices and offer a healthy work/life balance for employees. Most recently, we were named the Small Business
of the Year by the Portland Development Corporation.
