6 Festive Treats: For all Dogs Naughty and Nice

‘Tis the season to spoil our dogs. Ok, every season we spoil our dogs, but when it comes time to wrapping stuff up in a bow, we can’t forget Fido, right? So, these dog treats I found at SuperZoo 2018, the Holy Grail of pet industry trade shows, are as much for people as they […]

Solutions for Aging Dog Mobility Issues Part #6: Turmeric Terrific Dog Treat Recipe

Turmeric contains curcumin, which has strong anti-inflammatory properties and an anti-oxidant. It can help with pain, arthritis, and joint stiffness. However, the curcumin content in turmeric is not that high and people have to take higher concentration curcumin supplements to see any affect. Also, apparently, black pepper helps people absorb curcumin. However, coconut oil is […]

Solutions for Aging Dog Mobility Issues Part #5: Chews

Today, we continue our improving aging dog mobility series and this one’s easy: treats. But not just any treats…. Ok, these are not exactly treats – they are chews that look and sometimes taste like dog treats. However, there are specific dosages to give.

Recipe: Apple Honey Pup Cakes

Always searching for new dog treat recipes to try? Me too. Baking for the pups is particularly satisfying because they’re the least critical critics. I’m also always looking for new dog treat recipe books. If you’ve written one, let me know. I’d like to be inspired because, well, I’d like to do the same. Here’s […]

Oh Canada … PIJAC National Pet Industry Trade Show. Woof.

No question – the pet industry rocks. And it’s time to roll with the red and white but no blue … almost.

Recipe: Cheesy Potluck Doggie Cookies

My dog Victor loves cheese. Most dogs do. It’s one of his favourite ‘people’ foods especially in a house of no meat (expect pet food). However, fat is an issue, and not because he’s over-weight. Victor’s getting older and has already had a pancreatitis scare – too much fat can set it off. So, that’s […]

Recipe: Extra Sweet Sweet Potato Dog Treats

Extra Sweet Sweet Potato Treats My little terrier/cocker cross Victor isn’t always impressed with my efforts to bake. He’s picky, and despite telling him tales about hungry dogs in far away countries (like those my mother told me about hungry kids), he’s unwavering. Until another dog wants his treat, or the cats come sniffing around. […]

My Dog Demands: Gimme Chicken Cutlets (with B6) or the bag gets it!

Right now, there’s a half-eaten bag of Earth Animal Chicken Cutlets on the living room floor and that’s unusual. I don’t mean the bag’s half empty – I mean the plastic bag containing the jerky chicken dog treats is ripped apart. Shredded. When I wasn’t looking, my dog Victor immediately rummage into the box of […]

Spring Time (post-Easter) Doggie Donuts

Spring Time post-Easter Doggie Donuts Finally, I broke in my new donut baking mold. Now that I’m fulling obsessed with baking dog treat everything, I can’t stop buying baking supplies and cookie cutters. (Watch for the shoe-shaped dog biscuits coming up soon). But first, here’s some dog donuts I modified a dog cake recipe from […]
