Where it all began…

Posted on July 8, 2014 by

“This was the day I found the future Home of Dat Dog. Strangely, I don’t think in my heart of hearts we have done anything more from that day to the present other than get larger. The true essence of the company, not “all that glitters,” comes from that incredible day standing in front of this shed. ”
- XX Skip Murray, The Hot Dog Guy


Holy Hot Dog!!

Soooo, we might be massively fan-girling a bit over here! You know that feeling you get when your favourite celebrity RT’s or Mentions you?

Well, that pretty much happened to us at the weekend. Except we didn’t get RT’d or Mentioned, we got featured on one of our all time favourite websites, Buzzfeed! Say WHAAAAT?!

We actually got featured on one of their notoriously awesome lists, this one called ‘23 Truly Unbelievable Dishes Found Only in NOLA‘.

Thanks Buzzfeed!!

Dat Dog’s on People!

Posted on June 26, 2014 by

Hope ya’ll are doin’ okay?

We’ve been having a very busy week! Many of you may have heard that the beautiful and incredibly talented Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon stopped by Dat Dog Magazine last week with her two adorable nieces.



It certainly put a smile on our faces and appears it did for them too!

Whilst that was very exciting, it is equally exciting that we’ve been featured on People website! People got wind of Reese’s trip and asked if we could provide them with one of our recipes to feature on their site! So, if there’s ever a day where you just don’t feel up to paying us a visit, you can now make your very own Dat Dog at home! Check it out!

And if that wasn’t enough of a flavour explosion then team that with our cocktail special of the week, our Classic Caipirinha. This incredibly simple and incredibly boozy little number will rock your world. Just remember to drink responsibly guys!
