Dog treats explained
The term human grade dog treats could have a number of connotations. It could imply that the dog treats in question are of human grade quality. In other words, they’re dog treats but they’re made with ingredients which have been passed fit for human consumption. So they’re made for dogs but you could eat them too if you wanted.
Or it could simply mean that the dog treats in question are made with human grade ingredients instead of feed grade ingredients. If they were made of feed grade ingredients, your dog could eat them but you couldn’t.
Dog treats both you and your dog can enjoy
My dog treats most certainly fall into the category of being consumable by both you and your dog. They’re made for dogs, but also perfectly safe for humans to eat. How many commercial dog treat manufacturers can say that, I wonder?
The treats pictured above are a case in point. Naturally, my dogs are more than happy to eat the whole biscuit. But I just happen to find them extremely tasty with a hunk of mature cheddar. So I tend to give my dogs the bone and I eat the rest. I like to call them ‘share-and-share-alike’ dog treats!
At The Dog Chef, I’m passionate about dogs. I firmly believe that dogs should only be fed with high quality ingredients which have been passed fit for human consumption. That applies to both their food and to their treats. There’s nothing I feed to my own dogs that I could not eat myself if I so chose.
That same philosophy also applies to my dog treat mixes. There’s nothing in them that would stop you eating them if you wanted to.
My USP is “dog treats so healthy, you can eat them too!” And that’s why I’m always more than happy to sample the treats made with my dog treat mixes before ever I give them to my dogs to try.
Dog nutritionist-approved dog treats
My resident dog nutritionist in particular makes a point of regularly ‘sampling the inventory’, as he likes to put it. That said, he sometimes carries things a little too far. Not for the first time I recently had to make a second batch of one of my dog treats for my dogs to sample after a certain someone took the terms of his job description a little too far and scoffed the lot!
So if it’s important to you that you give your dog only human grade dog treats, you’ve come to the right place. Making dog treat mixes for healthy and natural, human grade dog treats is what I do. I enjoy them, my dogs enjoy them, and I sincerely hope that you and your dog will enjoy them too.
