Pet food and dog treat recalls have been hitting the news headlines more and more lately. It’s a wonderful time to be a pet parent and yet, as our dogs’ guardians and caretakers, we must use diligence in deciding what to allow them to eat. Words like natural and organic get tossed around like tennis balls, yet the safety of so many treats comes into question. Just recently, one brand of Bully Sticks was recalled due to salmonella, as Fidose of Reality shared.
With all these treat concerns and worries, why not try making a batch of safe, yummy treats for your dog? These aren’t treats that require a lot of ingredients and will be a fun fall dog treat making project, too! Our Puppy Relations (PR) Manager, Dexter, will be partaking as the groom in the #WigglebuttWedding taking place June 28, 2013, in Stratford, Connecticut. His bride, Zoe, happens to be a “Domestic Dogdess” and has been sharing her homemade SAFE dog food and dog treat recipes on her website.
