About Us

The Company

Gunhinarrung Balugan Treats is a proudly Australian indigenous female-owned business deeply rooted in the rich cultural heritage of Wiradjuri Country. Inspired by the wisdom of Biyama, or Mother Earth, we craft extraordinary, all-natural pet treats that celebrate the bountiful treasures of our land.

We honor Wiradjuri Country by carefully selecting proteins that embody the remarkable flavors and nutritional benefits found within our ancient landscapes. Our treats are crafted with simplicity in mind, free from preservatives, additives, and fillers. Following time-honored practices, we harness the Australian sun and breeze to air dry our treats, just as our ancestors did.

Dingo’s Mate embraces the fusion of Australian native flavors and spices, sharing the wonders of Wiradjuri Country with every treat. Our commitment to providing exceptional, single ingredient treats for dogs and cats is rooted in our desire to connect pets to our ancestral lands.

Excitingly, we are expanding our product line to include a variety of other pets in the coming months. By following us on traditional social media platforms, you can be the first to know about our new releases, discounts, sales, and gift-giving opportunities.

Gunhinurrung Balugan Treats is committed to offering treats made with natural, high-quality ingredients, free from any harmful additives or fillers. We understand that just as we wouldn’t want to feed our children processed foods, our pets also deserve the best nature has to offer.

The Products

Our products are 100% Australian, mostly single ingredient, and free from preservatives, additives and fillers. We naturally air dry our treats to generate a dried  protein based product, which, when bagged, is shelf stable without the use of any additives.

Our premium brand, Dingo’s Mate, also adds Australian native flavors and spices to the entire range for additional health benefits.

We are also proud to be one of the few pet treat suppliers that has complete control of our entire manufacturing process, from the purchase of the protein to the bagged product, and can reliably trace the origin of all our sustainably sourced human-grade proteins. Our product is of the highest quality. and all of our proteins are 100% sourced from within Australia.

The Brands

Dingo’s Mate

Dingo’s Mate was established in honor of our Nan’s brother, Uncle Charlie Evans, who was a Wiradjuri Drover. He showed us how to use Native Foods, and instilled in us an obligation to care for our pets

Tildy Toot’s Treats

Tildy Toot’s was born out of my work in Pet Rescue in the USA for over a decade.   During that time, I managed the fostering of over 1,000 dogs. As well as managing the fostering process, I gathered a large body of knowledge about dogs’ and cats’ nutritional requirements. Matilda (Tildy Toot) was our matriarch and pack leader, who sadly passed last year. As a family we have always had animals as part of our family structure.
