Our story

At LYO DOG, we believe that dogs are our best friends, family members and adventure buddies. We take our dogs on outdoor activities such as hiking, ski touring, mountain biking or camping, we also put a lot of effort into their training. For us, an active lifestyle with dogs is more than just a hobby – it’s a way of life. Therefore, our dogs deserve only the best.

With our own dogs in mind & based on our own experience with various outdoor activities, dog training, dog nutrition and allergies, we have created a line of 100% natural freeze-dried dog treats, made from organically grown fruits and vegetables. At the request of our customers, we later added a line of limited-edition, one-ingredient air dried meat and fish treats. All treats are made in small batches, from one single ingredient and without any kind of additives (no preservatives, artificial colours or flavour enhancers). All our treats are made in the EU, from best possible ingredients available.

“LYO” comes from the word “lyophilisation” (freeze-drying), this is a process where water is removed from organic ingredients, in order to preserve their nutritional value, flavour and texture. This is achieved by first freezing the ingredient, then placing it a vacuum and exposing it to very low (below zero) heat, which causes the frozen water to evaporate. The result is light, dry and highly nutritious food, without any fillers or additives – perfect for your active dog.

We are committed to transparency and honesty in all aspects of our business, and we believe that by working together with other brands that share our values, we can offer a wider range of high quality products for our customers. We carefully and thoroughly test all the products ourselves with our dogs, before including them into our shop. If a product doesn’t meet our quality standards and values, we won’t offer it to our customers.



As a socially and environmentally conscious company, we will always strive to be as sustainable as possible in all aspects of the business. In the future we will use part of our profits to give back with environmental and socially-responsible projects. Besides that, we aim to encourage people to be active outdoors with their dogs, to improve their physical and mental health, while simultaneously improving the bond with their dog, as well as promoting the importance of preservation of our natural environment.

LYO DOG is dedicated to our dogs: Darwin, Ozzy and Ziggy. Each of them of a completely different breed, character, size, activity level and trainability, but all of them were and still are our best life teachers. Everything we do is made with them in our minds and all the love we feel for them and our customers.
