A Message from Robert

Robert our Dog Treat mascotRobert our Dog Treat mascot

Hi, I'm Robert (but you can call me "Bob"!) and on behalf of "How to Make Dog Treats," I want to tell you that my aunt Susan, who types all this good stuff on Easy Food Dehydrating, said she has a doggie too at their home.

She told me she was a stray who wandered onto her garden one day. My Aunt Susan is really nice, and she and her hubby adopted the little doggie.

She said she didn't want to feed her stray doggie 'any old dog food,' so she made a special nutritious recipe...

She then taught my mom how to make Chicken Chow and I certainly can't complain at all about the fantastic food I get...but she needs more help here.

You see, there are lots of dogs out there that need your help and are not as lucky as I am.

If you've got any fancy recipes for biscuits or bones, write to me at the bottom of the page!

And just keep on readin' to see who's helped me out so far ~ Woof Woof!

When we first adopted our Miniature Pinscher, it was around the time that major dog food manufacturers of canned foods were having a rough time. Meaning? Some of their food was tainted and had to be recalled.

I thought our little adopted doggie had been through enough, already. Someone had just dumped her at the end of our road. She wandered onto our property and we saved her! Her full story is in the book, above.

That very first week after adopting, I promised her I'd make dog food that was delicious, nutritious, and affordable. Dogs and humans alike can eat the Chicken Chow and Bow Wow Beefy Chow. Why? Because it contains real meat, and ingredients we can all pronounce.

To give your dog a change from eating wet dog food, try dehydrating some of the chicken chow mix and make little biscuits out of them. I swear they look just like McD's chicken nuggets...

Dog Spoiling Made Easy

I LOVE this site: Dog Spoiling Made Easy.

One page in particular: brushing your dog's teeth.

Way back, we realized our doggie was in distress. Her teeth were all just about falling out. Our bad, totally. Peanut butter was the culprit.

So, after a hefty $1k bill to fix her up, we heeded Val's advice to brush your dogs' teeth!
