Testing new dog treats is one of Sherman and Leroy’s favorite activities and it’s something that I enjoy because I get to learn about fun dog bakeries that produce some super amazing dog treats, however, with so many dog treats out there I have to limit the ones that I agree to review.
Normally when I’m contacted to do a review on dog treats I have to do a lot of research to see if the product is review worthy. For me that means looking to see if the product is healthy, made in the U.S.A., fun, and stands out from the rest.
In November and December I was bombarded with requests to review dog treats. Of course, I wanted to do them all but that just wasn’t possible so I carefully went through my emails and picked the ones that stood out from the rest. Three Dog Bakery was among them.
What stood out about Three Dog Bakery was not only that their products contain all natural ingredients but also the story behind them:
In 1989, three dogs, two guys and one 59¢ biscuit cutter joined forces to create Three Dog Bakery when their albino Great Dane, Gracie, became ill. Gracie wasn’t just a pet; she was family. This furry family member refused to eat any dog food her parents Dan and Mark brought home.
So they took matters into their own kitchen.
The first batch wasn’t perfect. But after a while, Gracie devoured Dan and Mark’s homemade treats.
Gracie wasn’t the only one who loved them. Her sisters Sarah and Dottie also drooled over the nutritious goodies. Soon the neighbors’ dogs caught whiff of the new creations and before too long, dogs all over Kansas City were craving the homemade treats.
Mark and Dan began selling their dog treats on lunch breaks and weekends. In 1989, Three Dog Bakery outgrew their kitchen; they left their “real jobs” and opened the world’s first bakery for dogs.
With a story like that, I just had to try out some of their treats.
I set my eyes on the Biscuits Baked With Apple and Oats, the Beg-als Baked with Peanut Butter, and the ever so cool- Gracie Grande Yappuccino.
Sherman and Leroy seemed blown away by each of the treats.
My personal favorite was the Biscuits Baked with Apple and Oats, but the boys were going absolutely crazy over the Gracie Grande Yappuccino. These treats smell amazing and Leroy seriously knocked me over trying to get to the container. He was all pushy and shovey when I was trying to put them away and I had to tell him to “back off” while I secured the container safely away in the cupboard.
The Baked Apple and Oats biscuits and the Beg-als Baked with Peanut Butter came in a 2 pound resealable bag and were the perfect size treats for Sherman and Leroy, not to small and not too big. They are treats that I would give on a daily basis. The Yappiccino is a special treat that I use for super good behavior or for when I need to bribe them to sit still 🙂
