24 delicate cakes rolled in naturally sweet carob chips, peanut crumbles and coconut flakes, neatly packaged and shipped to your door for only $12.95. The catch? These treats will find their way straight to the floor, and satisfy the sweet canine molars of our favorite pups. “Ruffles” from the Three Dog Bakery is a canine spin on classic truffles, and is just one of the many all-natural, gourmet treats available from their “Dogalog.” Open since 1989, this bakery’s love of dogs is apparent in everything they do and say. They offer creatively named treats like “Vanilla Woofers”, “Beagles”, “SnickerPoodles” and “Slab O’ rrrRRRibs” and even throw a bone to cat lovers with the “Whole Kitten Caboodle.” Dog lovers can sniff out stores in more than 13 states, or fill their shopping “bassets” with treats from the online store.
Everyone knows the way to a dog’s heart is through their stomach, and if you can’t get to the bakery you can make your own homemade treats with ingredients found at your local grocery store.
The biggest dog lover I know, Kristin, graciously sent me a link to this recipe after making treats for her dog Sam. Sam is used to the royal treatment, and these biscuits did not disappoint. Keep in mind that since the ingredients are fresh and without preservatives, you will have to keep the biscuits refrigerated; they only last a few days.
