As a conscientious dog mom, I was determined to only let my “boys” have safe dog treats. The best way to ensure that all the ingredients were acceptable was to make my own.

So I started making homemade dog treats.  I gave some to a friend, and then she referred someone else, and through word of mouth, people began asking for my treats for their dogs. Somebody suggested that I exhibit my treats with my other crafts at a local craft fair, so I did and generated quite a bit of interest!  I look forward to the craft fairs. They are a great way to promote locally.

Our most popular treats are the peanut butter dog biscuits. We also make special dog treats to celebrate the various holidays, like our Valentine dog cookies.

I named my little venture after my beagles. Baron is the  stubby guy and Henry is the wiry one. Baron came all the way from Missouri,  but Henry is a local boy. Anyone who has beagles can tell you that there is never a problem with too many leftover treats in the house! 

I would like to share a story. The black dog in the photo was named Ruger. He was very sick and would not eat.

He didn’t have long to live so I made him a big batch of treats…and he ate them all. He loved the blueberry  and the cheese that are shown in the collage above.  He went to the bridge shortly after this picture was taken. He was such a sweet boy. I wanted to share this picture in his memory.

I also wanted to share the note that his owners sent: “We thank you so much for your wonderful treats. Ruger wagged his tail like mad when he saw the very large bag of wonderful bones. Words can not say how much we thank you.”

This is why I do what I do – to bring joy to dogs especially like Ruger and his wonderful family.
