Huxley Hound’s organic, vegetarian pet treats have found an enthusiastic audience on BBC2’s Dragons’ Den.
Two of the television show’s ‘dragons’, the multi-millionaires Jenny Campbell and Tej Lalvani, offered to invest in the company. Huxley Hound founders Mike and Zena Dean eventually decided to scoop up the £50,000 pledged by dog-owner, Jenny.
Zena Deane said; “Even though Mike and I have always known that we were onto something rather special, to receive glowing tributes from such business savvy dragons is not only reassuring but worth its weight in gold. Indeed, since we first aired last Sunday we’ve been bagging a fresh order every six minutes!”
In September, Huxley Hound also plans to reveal vibrant new packaging courtesy of We Launch. The products will continue to be made with fully traceable carrots, sweet potatoes, beetroot and parsnips. The dehydrated organic vegetable treats have Vegan and Vegetarian Society trademarks.
Zena says: “We’re not trying to turn committed carnivores into reluctant vegetarians, we’re simply advocating, that in a world where one in three UK dogs is now deemed clinically obese that any well-balanced doggie diet should encompass an accessible and affordable veggie fix.”
