New improved recipe and new manufacturing base for Doggy Doggy Yum Yum frozen treat


Doggy Doggy Yum Yum is an award-winning product

Latest news from Doggy Yum Yum...

With the summer months around the corner, dog owners will be able to treat their canine friends to an award-winning tasty frozen treat manufactured by artisan ice cream company, Baboo Gelato based in Dorset.

Doggy Doggy Yum Yum was a Silver winner in the PetQuip Awards in 2022 and won Best New Product in the Pedigree Wholesale Awards.  It is stocked by a long list of dog friendly cafes, restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions and pubs as well as leading pet shops across the UK. The frozen treat is now manufactured in-house in a new purpose-built premises at the company’s Dorset base. 

Made with 100% peanut butter (with no xylitol) and bananas which dogs find hard to resist, this frozen treat uses coconut milk instead of dairy so it is kinder to dogs’ tummies. The new recipe also includes organic agave syrup (rather than refined sugars),  Keepers Mix® Sensitive (0.25%) from herbal pet supplement company Dorwest and vegetable fibre.  If given as an occasional treat after a long walk in the countryside, the park or on the beach this tasty treat is perfect way to reward your dog.  Doggy Doggy contains no artificial flavourings, colours or refined sugars. The new ingredient change means that any ‘ultra processed food’ emulsifiers or stabilisers from the product have been removed something the manufacturers are extremely proud of.  

Baboo Gelato was started by husband and wife team, Sam and Annie Hanbury after they moved to Dorset in 2012 and purchased a house with an overflowing garden and orchard. Inspired by their fruit, Annie went to Bologna to train as a professional gelatiere, before setting up a small artisanal manufacturing kitchen. They opened their first kiosk in West Bay Dorset and were overwhelmed by the wonderful response from the community. Local restaurants and pubs then wanted their product; other kiosks wanted to rebrand to carry Baboo Gelato and shops wanted them to make ice cream in tubs. They have now added kiosks in Lyme Regis, Weymouth and Swanage. The passion for the business lies in their use of quality ingredients, sourced locally where possible and not using flavourings, colours or pastes in the manufacture of their ice cream.

Sam Hanbury says: “Much of our sales come from our kiosks which help us to know exactly what customers want.  This is how Doggy Doggy Yum Yum came about.  We found that people were buying ice cream for their dogs, and we were concerned that dogs are lactose intolerant.  We experimented with different ingredients, before creating an entirely lactose-free, emulsifier-free, stabiliser-free product. 

 “We are finding limitless demand during the summer not just from obvious pet retailers and specialist dog friendly places, but from ordinary cafés, pubs, restaurants, and tourist destinations.  It just seems that most savvy people involved in Food & Drink want some of the poochie pound and we can help with a classy product, well supported with point of sale which includes, stickers, leaflets, posters and an A-frame sign which comes complete with space to put a dog bowl underneath it.”

Doggy Doggy Yum Yum won a distribution deal two years ago with one of the largest pet wholesalers in the UK, Pedigree Wholesale Ltd which is allowing them to gain national distribution to pet shops across the UK. The product is now available to buy in prestigious pets shops such Pet Pavillion in London, Just For Pets and many more.
