We get lots of feedback from our website visitors, just like you. Here's what some of them are saying . . .

"I love your newsletter and site. Thanks so much for all the information. I'm kind of a novice, but your site has inspired me for my little dog."

"I want to thank you for the helpful hints and recipes! My German Shepherd is allergic to corn and because of this, we have to be very picky on what she can have to eat. Even when we purchased biscuits from the store that did not have corn products in it, she would still have problems. We searched for recipes to make and we found your website with lots of treats that she can eat. I can now give both my pets treats and not exclude the other. Thanks again!"

Dog Treat Baking Tips

This month's tip comes from Clark who shared this months tip:

"When I make up my treats I use half the dough with the cookie cutter for biscuits. The other half I roll into bread sticks and then with scissors I cut off bits in 1/4 to 1/2 inch segments. They are now training treats. My Jack Russell loves them."

Thanks Clark for taking the time to share this great tip! Share your dog treat tips with your fellow bakers! We know you have lots of great ideas, ways of making and creative ways of decorating homemade dog treats.
