Why commercial dog treats are no way to reward your dog
For anyone wanting to make dog treats at home, it can be something of a daunting task. There is so much conflicting information on the internet. That’s one of the reasons so many people stick to commercial dog treats. At least commercial dog treat manufacturers know what they’re talking about. Or do they?
Most of the commercial dog treats on the market are made by a handful of companies. Companies whose raison d’être is to maximise profits at any cost. So they use cheap, synethtic ingredients in order to bolster their profits. Ingredients like woodpulp, otherwise known as sawdust to you and I.
It may not be common knowledge, but woodpulp is a staple ingredient in much of today’s dog food. (Disguised on packaging as cellulose)!
Make dog treats at home the easy way
It’s partly because of such practices that I launched The Dog Chef. Having perfected the art of making healthy and natural homemade treats for my own dogs, I developed my Bake & Treat dog treat mixes.
With the help of my in-house canine nutritionist, I have been able to establish a wide range of dog-safe, healthy and natural ingredients. Ingredients with which I could happily reward my dogs at the same time as benefiting their health.
So now, anyone can do what I do and make dog treats at home for their special canine someone.
My dog treat mixes come complete with all dry ingredients. Where supplementary ingredients are required, they are everyday kitchen staples such as an egg or a splash of olive oil.
Dog-safe, human grade ingredients
Importantly, every ingredient in any of my mixes is both dog-safe and fit for human consumption. That means you could happily use my dog treat mixes as a way of introducing your children to home baking. Because they won’t be handling anything that is not fit to be eaten by humans. Both you and they – and your dog of course – can also enjoy the fruits of yours or their labours.
While we all might have our favourites, there are no dog treats made with my mixes that the members of my small team don’t regularly try themselves.
And my dog nutritionist has a policy of sampling absolutely every single dog treat before ever my dogs get to try them. He says it’s part of his job description. That said, judging from the contented smile on his face sometimes, I get the feeling there’s a good deal more to it than that!
Give homemade dog treats a try
I so hope you will give my dog treat baking mixes a try. And do please let me know how you get on. I’m hoping to make a sea change in the way pet parents reward their dogs. I’d very much like you to be part of it!
