Your Pup Wants Pasta too! – Pooch Pasta!

Pooch Pasta -
Written by Rachel Phelps

I love pasta!  I know for us dogs it probably isn’t the best thing to eat all the time, but I like to have a bit from Mom’s plate. I love the noodles, the spaghetti sauce, and let’s not forget … the meatballs!   So when Mom told me there was a company called Pooch Pasta that makes pasta just for us dogs, I knew I had to try it.  My friends at Pooch Pasta sent me a couple of bags to taste test!

About Pooch Pasta

Pooch Pasta - PrestonSpeaks.comThese treats were created by a chef, Robert Witty, who noticed one day when he accidently dropped some uncooked noodle’s on the floor that his BFF dog Albert ate them.  He had a lightbulb moment and thought he could make healthier treats for dogs in the form of pasta.  So he went to work in his kitchen to develop the recipe and with the guidance of a vet developed Pooch Pasta. These are small batch artisan treats available in three flavors:

  • Albert’s Favorite – Beef Flavored – Ingredients: Love, Semolina, Beef, all-purpose flour, and water.
  • Otis’s Favorite – Chicken Flavored – Ingredients: Love, Semolina, Chicken, all-purpose flour, and water.
  • Mademoiselle Fifi’s Favorite – Wuff Wafers (Gluten Free) – Ingredients: Love, sweet potato flour, chicken, eggs, rice flour, water, and salt.

Each package comes in a resealable container, is available in two sizes (8 oz and 4 oz), and retails for around $10. These treats don’t require refrigeration and have a very long shelf life.  They can be eaten right out of the package or they can be cooked as you would any pasta.

My Pooch Pasta Review

Pooch Pasta - PrestonSpeaks.comWhen Mom opened the packages, I was intrigued.  They smelled yummy, and Mom said that they looked like human pasta.  Mom liked that there were no artificial colors and no preservatives.  First, I tried the pasta treats uncooked.  I have to admit, I liked how crunchy it was.  My favorite was the Wuff Wafers, but I ate all three.  Next, I put Mom to work and asked her to cook them.  She made them the same way she would make her noodles.  She brought some water to a boil and then added the noodles.  Remember to be safe and not give the Pooch Pasta to your dog until they cool down.  Here are some photos of the pasta cooked.

Kickstarter Campaign

I don’t usually promote kickstarter campaigns, but this is a great product and us dogs need pasta in our lives.  Robert’s passion is culinary, but as with many of you humans, life gets in the way of your dreams, so he has a day job in Information Technology.  He also loves his dog Albert, and these treats are a way to bring his passion of cooking and dogs together.  He has five days left in his Kickstarter campaign, so please consider making a pledge.  Each pledge of $10 or more gets at least one bag of these great treats shipped to you.  Besides, not only are you getting some yummy treats for your dog, you are supporting a dream.  Please consider supporting his Kickstarter page here:

Overall, I give the Pooch Pasta two paws up and I can’t wait to see what is next for this great pet entrepreneur!

  • Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that
    “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!
