Our process is even more difficult to do than normal pelleting, because we use a method called “ cold pressed pelleting.” This modified process avoids a steam cooking step used in other industries. This would denature ingredients and cause moisture to be added, thus causing more processing steps and preservative to make a shelf stable product. This isn’t needed! 

The Rogue pelleting method ensures the highest digestible quality, avoids biological growth issues by not needing moisture and no preservatives are required.  We earned the knowledge of our unique process and allows us to deliver a Real, Honest and Functional product that sets the bar for safety!

The short answer is, it’s very hard to do this! Very few companies, let alone industry people, have the expertise to make this process of pelleting work for companion animal products. The Rogue founder is one of those people who has helped other industries and companies the world over to pelletize food for other animal species.

The advantages of the pelleting process makes it an ideal manufacturing method for all pet products, including treats and our pellets. The primary benefit of pelleting, it removes the need to use unnecessary heating of ingredients to make them stick together, which would only denature the ingredients, but also avoids creating more surface bonds with other ingredients used. By avoiding traditional treat manufacturing methods (hard extrusion, soft treat extrusions, baking, etc) Rogue creates an ideal treat that avoids the use of binders, preservatives, denaturing the ingredients while avoiding the formation of extra bonds that would only resist digestion breakdown in your pet.

Solo training treats are made from a single ingredient source without the use of binding agents, preservatives, synthetics or hidden products. Owners and dog trainers want to use high value food rewards while maintaining a highly functional food treat. The Solo line of training treats allows just this and more! We keep the nutrition density level high, thus eliminating the need for low quality nutrition density and odd non-species appropriate ingredients (molasses, flours, binders) out of a dog’s diet. The process used to enable Rogue to do this is called “cold pressed pelleting.”

Solo Training Pellets are made using cold pressed pelleting, which allows our Solo Training Pellets keep their nutritional value.
