About

Hi Everyone! 

My Name is Kimberly, And I Love My Dogs So Much, That They Regularly Eat Better Than I Do!

We Are A New York City Based Treat Company Out Of The Historic Neighborhood of Saint Albans (Queens), NY. We Make Our Treats In Small Batches To Insure That Our Quality Isn't Compromised. We Offer Human Grade, Quality Treats That Are All Natural, Grain, Gluten, And Filler Free. We Craft Coconut Ice Cream, Biscuits, Meat Treats And Oatmeal For Dogs.

I Started Making Treats For My Own Dogs Shortly After A Run-In With A Bad Batch Of Store Bought Treats.  After Much Worry And Expense, I Decided It Would Be Smarter, Safer And More Responsible To Craft My Own Treats.  That Was Nearly Four Years Ago Now, And After Encouragement From Friends And Family, And A Whole Lot Of Research, I Decided To Make These Treats On A Larger Scale.   Thus Began The Birth Of, 'Comfort Food For Dogs'.  Pet Friendly Versions Of The Comfort Foods You And I Enjoy.  You Can Take Comfort In Knowing You Are Treating Your Dog To Some Of The Best Stuff Out There, And Your Pets?  Well, They Just Love The Taste!

Ok, So It's Nice You Cook For Your Dogs...But...

                                   YUP!   

So, Have You Ever Been Sitting On The Sofa During A Netflix Binge, Eating The Contents Of Some Yummy-But-Truly-Bad-For-You-But-So-What-Cuz-That's-What-Spanx-Are-For Treat, When You Notice In Your Peripheral Vision Your Dog Is Side Eyeing You Cuz You Aren't Sharing?  Yeah, I Get That x2 From My Boys Mac & Cheese.  Although, I Would Really Love To Share, Human Junk Food Is Just Plain Bad For Dogs! Our Ice Cream, For Instance, Is Dairy Based, And Loaded With Chemical Stabilizers, And Other Unpronounceable Ingredients That Canine Digestive Tracts Aren't Designed To Handle. 

However, Coconut Milk Is A Natural Dairy Alternative That Has A Naturally Sweet Flavor, As Well As A Ton Of Health Benefits! It's A Great Alternative To Actual Dairy, And Even Those Non-Dairy 'Frozen Treats' For Dogs That Are Sold In Your Grocer's Freezer.

Comfort Food For Dogs Recognizes Pet Parents' Need To Give 'Love Via Treat', And Is Offering Up A Tasty, Healthy Solution.  Made From Coconut Milk, Beef Gelatin, And Natural Fruit Powders, Our Frozen Treat Is Not Only Great Tasting, But Great For Them!  You'll Feel At Ease Or 'Comforted' If You Will, About Handing Over A Scoop Of Our Treat For Dogs.  

                              ANSWER:

Shipping ANYTHING Frozen Is a Logistical Nightmare.  Watch An Episode Of Shark Tank, And You'll See The Sharks Literally Scatter As Far Away As Possible.  Shipments Get Lost, Product Melts, And $$ Goes Down The Drain.  Powdered Ice Cream Is Lighter And Therefore Cheaper To Ship, Doesn't Have The Shelf-Life Limitations Of A Frozen Product, And Is Easy To Transport On Vacations Or Bring To Doggy Day Cares. Powdered Also Doesn't Require All The Chemical Stabilizers Frozen Ice Cream Would To Be Sure The Product Structure Stays Intact Once It Reaches Your Freezer.  No Guar Gum, No Locust Bean Gum, No Xantham or Carageenan..Yuck!

 

By Far Our Coconut Ice Cream Is The Most Popular Seller At The Trade Shows We Attend Around The Country.  This Year We Attended Shows In New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Dallas, Phoenix, And Long Island - And We Sold Out At Each And Every Show!  We Met One On One With Owners, And Provided Samples Of Our Ice Cream Directly To Four-Legged Customers.  Each Pet Parent Was Sold Once They Saw The Wagging Tails Of Their Fur Kids.  And The Loyalty Didn't Stop There.  Those Same Customers Order Regularly On Our Website www.ComfortFoodForDogs.com! Check Out Some Of Our Happy Customers Below!

We Have A Unique Product That Is Gaining Popularity With Owners, Families And Furkids All Over The Country.  We've Even Gone International With Customers In Australia, Canada, And Brazil!  

  And Every One Of Our Recipes Is Fur Kid Tested And Approved. If My Dogs Won't Eat It.. It Doesn't Leave My Kitchen!

Longer Shelf Life:  Our Powdered Non-Dairy Treat Is Shelf Stable For 1 Year.  That Means You Can Purchase It In January, And Not Use It Until The Summer Months Of June And Beyond Without It Growing 'Fur' In Your Freezer!  You Activate It With Hot Water, Mix And Freeze When You Are Ready! 

Travels Well:  Do You Vacation Like The Grizwalds By Loading Up The Car With The Kids And Dog, To Head To The Beach House?  Or Maybe Your Flying To A Tropical Destination And Staying At An Airbnb.  Either Way, Comfort Creams Has Got You Covered!  This Container Packs Well In Your Suitcase (Either Carryon Or Checked Baggage).

It's Fun!:  Each Flavor Of Our Comfort Creams Comes With a 2-Pack of Our Trademarked 'Comfort Cones', A Serving Sized Waffle Cone Bowl That Is Made From Grain, Gluten & Chemical Free Ingredients That Are Safe For Your Pup!  That Makes This A FULLY Edible Treat From Start To Finish! It's Tons Of Fun For The Family To Watch Your Pups' Tail Wag With Delight While Consuming Our Sundaes!

NO Corn, Wheat, Soy, Dairy, or Chemicals! Just The Good Stuff!

Coconut Milk: Coconut is loaded with Lauric Acid. - known for its antibacterial properties. It contain natural oils, which help with digestion.

Organic Chia Seed: An Amazing SuperFood Full of Omega - 3 , 6 & 9 Fatty Acids (3X more than Salmon!), Fiber and Protein, and Is a natural Anti-oxidant. Also a great Source of Vitamin B!

Sunflower Lecithin (Soy Free & non-GMO): Unlike Its Soy Based Counterpart, Sunflower Lecithin Has Antioxidant Properties, Good Fats, Choline, Assist With Brain, Heart And Liver Health (By Helping To Metabolize Fats), As Well As Keeping The Nervous  And Immune Systems Healthy.

Beef Gelatin - Known Widely For It's Seizure Inhibiting Properties, Gelatin Has Long Been A Beneficial Ingredient In Your Pups Diet.  Glycine, An Essential Nutrient Is Provided In Gelatin, And Gelatin Also Provides Great Benefits To Animal Joints And Ligaments Allowing Tissue To Regenerate And Repair, And Aids Pets Effected By Arthritis.  

All These Ingredients Make Our Frozen Treat Not Only Irresistible, But Contain Some Of The Essentials For Health And Happiness! 

   NOPE!  Preparing Our Comfort Creams Is:

                     It's Just That Simple!

                               If We Are Successfully Funded, We Will:

        Convert from a 12OZ container to a Larger 16OZ! See Below:

Current (Only 12OZ)                       NEW (16OZ - A Full Pint)!
Current (Only 12OZ) NEW (16OZ - A Full Pint)!

                        What Else Will This Campaign Fund?

INVENTORY:  

  • Bulk Purchase of Powdered Coconut Milk: (Finding A Responsibly Sourced Coconut Milk Powder Isn't Cheap, But It's Necessary To Make Our Product Great! We Found An Amazing Supplier Who Guarantees No Grains Or Fillers Used In The Processing.) 
  • Bulk Purchase of Additional Ingredients: For Comfort Creams (Bulk Fruit Powders, Beef Gelatin, etc.)

PROFESSIONAL PACKAGING:

  • New Containers! (Packaging Upgrade from 12oz Container to 16oz!)
  • Labels For The New Containers (These New Labels Will Give My Packaging A Professional Finish That Will Look Great Sitting On Pet Stores Shelves).

I Currently Use A BPA Free Plastic Container And Lid..This Costs Me $1.27 Cents Per Cream To Produce (Including Label Costs). My New Container Will Reduce Costs To Just .38 Cents Label Included!  (But Only If I Buy In Large Quantities!)

Risks and challenges

Risks Can Always Be A Factor With Any Newer Or Even Existing Business. We've Tested Scores Of Recipes With New And Current Customers, As Well As With Veterinarians To Create The Best Possible Healthy Ingredient, And Tasty Combinations For Our Pets!

We Can Only Hope To Be Supported By Backers That Share And Support Our Vision, And We Have Found An Abundant Coconut Milk Supplier Just In Case We Need A TON!!

We Will Continue To Travel To Trade Shows To Build A Following For Our Products, As Well As Continue To Build Our Online Business. Although We Do Hope To Expand Into Some Smaller Retail Stores, We Want To Eventually Enter Into A Trader Joe's Style Store For Larger Distribution. We Love Their Quality Standards, And Hope We Can Align Our Vision With Companies Like Theirs.
