Welcome and thanks for stopping in!
Unique Treat Dog Bones are paw-licking good! They're good enough for you, but made for your pets. All of my recipes are made with organic and fresh ingredients. I use whole wheat, rye, and soy flours, with real milk, eggs & cheeses. I NEVER add sugar. A few recipes have a small amount of honey or molasses. I always list all ingredients in the materials list, so you have to be the judge for your pet. If you have a question about what's right for your dogs' dietary needs, please check with your Vet.

If your dog is sensitive to wheat (most all my recipes use some whole wheat flour), please contact me & I will arrange to list a wheat free alternative for you!

Some of my biscuits are made hard to assist with oral care and just offer a consistency change in my dogs' diets. This has led to a funny, yet very true story which happened 8/22/08;

I had left a tray of Apple Drop Biscuits in the oven to harden a bit as the oven cooled. Well, I promptly forgot about them. When my Mother went to cook a pizza several days later, she turned the oven on to preheat without realizing the treats were in there. Needless to say they were too old and brown to sell at this point, not to mention they seemed to be extremely hard.

Since four of the dogs that began circling are small Yorkies, and one is very old with poor teeth, I tried to break the treats so that they all could have a taste.

Well.....I couldn't break them at all. Not even when I laid them on the ground and hit them with a brick. My Grams didn't believe that I was serious so she took one and tried also. Then my Mom joined in. All of us trying to break a cookie with whatever we could find, rocks, bricks, a planter.... what a site!

Of course we were all laughing and not really paying attention to the dogs, so they took advantage, circled, ran in, and stole the non-breaking cookies. Thinking that they could harm them (as in break their jaws, lol) I tried to get the cookies back, but each protected theirs as they lay and chewed on them. Lucky was the only one that heard break a cookie (he is a Corgie)and it took him a while! Don't worry, I checked, he didn't break any teeth in the process! But no dog, not even Miss Twinkles, the pickiest eater (she is usually hand fed people food by my Mom) would give up their cookie, or give up on eating them.

They all laid in the grass, at strategic locations all over the yard, cookies poised in between their paws, heads down, eyes up, gnawing on their treat, growling at anyone that came near. When we would get too close, they'd pick up their imitation rocks and run to another spot to lay down and work on it some more. I have never laughed so hard in my life, it really was a site to behold, five dogs (Dallas was back inside my house so he missed out on the fun) laying all over the yard, growling and gnawing away! By golly they all ate every bit of those hard things too. Not one crumb was left. I know because my Grams couldn't believe that any dog could actually eat them, let alone her nearly toothless dog, so she inspected each inch of the porch and yard!

Not only were there no crumbs left, Lol, they all came back licking their chops and looking for more!

Now, I promise you that your Apple Drop Biscuits will not be as hard as this batch was, but they are still a good, hard cookie that tastes great while helping with oral care!

*STORAGE, REFRIGERATION, and FREEZING*
Since these have no preservatives, care must be taken in storage. In general you should store dog treats the same way you would homemade people cookies. That being said, there are two main variables that determine storage time - the amount and type of fat in the recipe and your local weather conditions.

If your treat has butter, meat bits, meat juices, or fresh fruits and vegetables, it will be more prone to rancidity. Also, treats may mold or spoil much faster in humid or very hot climates.
Although I've never had them last long around my dogs, under ideal conditions you can keep treats in an air-tight container for approx. 3-4wks.

Refrigeration will prolong the life to approx. 6-8 weeks. Make sure to store in a tightly sealed container or zip lock bag. I recommend keeping all uneaten bones that contain meats, cheeses and vegetable in the refrigerator, although I know users who do not, and they have not had issues with them.

You can also freeze treats in zip lock freezer bags.Frozen bones should be used within approx. 8 months. Always remember to allow the treats to thaw completely before use. This should take approx. 20-30 min.

No matter how you store your treats, before feeding inspect each treat for signs of mold. If any is noticed, throw the treat out, as mold is dangerous for dogs to ingest.


*Packaging and Appearance*
Unless you purchase a tin or other specialized container, your order will be shipped in a cello bag with varying designs, therefore, it may not be the same design that is pictured. Most orders are also placed inside a bakery box.
