Carefully Crafted The Way You Would #InspiredbyCrafted

I enjoy dibbling my hands into craft projects when I have the time and one of my favorites is crocheting.  I have created several crochet blankets for my family members and friends over the years, my husband, my best friend, my nan (by marriage but I consider her my grandmother), my adorable nephew and Alle.  As I have mention before Alle is part of the family and my world so why wouldn't I make her a blanket with my two hands, love, time and effort.  She absolutely puppy loves her crochet blanket I crafted for her (at least that is what I hope and believe).  Alle often carries it around with her as she explores the wonders of outside and she can be found sleeping and drooling on her blanket every night. 

Which is why Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Crafted™ resonates with me because its dog food made the way you would.  I don't always have the time and energy to make Alle a homemade nutritious meal but with Hills new dog food I can rest assured it was carefully crafted as if I had made it myself.

Hill’s Ideal Balance Crafted is rare recipes created in small batches.  It all starts by carefully selecting sourced proteins that help build & maintain lean muscle for your dog's active lifestyle.  And vegetables that help strengthen your dogs immune system.  Then Ideal Balance Crafted dry and wet dog food is carefully crafted with care by master chefs whom are completely hands on. 

For Crafted dry food they start by adding oats and parsley by hand then selecting a dough sample they pull and knead to ensure that the feel and texture is pawsitively perfect.  The dough is then rolled out and these craftsmen painstakingly cut kibble out looking it over to establish it meets their high standards.  Then the delectable kibble is baked at 400 degrees.  This non typical but efficient cooking process on their oven roasted dog kibble locks in nutrition and flavor while giving your pup a texture they enjoy woofing down.

For Crafted wet dog food they prepare it by attentively keeping the dry ingredients and proteins away from other broths, flavoring, and starches.  Then the meat, vegetables and gravy is mixed to create a mouth watering stew.  It is then put into a  can to be slow-cooked at 250 degrees to secure all the flavor and nutrition stays inside, delivering a perfectly balanced nutrition dog food with a delicious texture.
