The Lapdog kids had the opportunity to review some yummy dog treats from Blue Dog Bakery... and 16 paws up were officially given!

Blue Dog Bakery's Meaty Flavors were released earlier this year, much to the delight of canines across the country. These premium low fat dog treats feature an assortment of Natural Grilled Steak, Roasted Chicken, Liver and Beef & Bacon flavors - all of which are drool worthy! Your pooches will glady sit, stay, roll over or high-five for these animal shaped biscuits. They smell so delicious that some pooches can't even resist a closed box...

There are no animal by-products, no preservatives or additives, no artificial flavors or colors in Blue Dog Bakery's biscuits – just healthy and nutritious ingredients such as: unbleached wheat flour, whole wheat flour, cane molasses, whey, oats, palm oil, and non-fat milk. Different taste profiles which are derived from natural grilled steak, chicken, liver and beef and bacon flavors, ensure that dogs won't get tired of them. The crunchy biscuits are perfect for dogs of all sizes thanks to the assortment of large and small animal shapes.

In April, Blue Dog Bakery expanded its collection of premium dog treats with the launch of Small Snacks - Peanut Butter & Molasses. The healthy, new treats are great for small/medium dogs and puppies and are also perfect for training, since even the pickiest of dogs go nuts for Blue Dog Bakery's tail-wagging creations. Some go so nuts, they steal the box while their Mom is trying to photograph it...

Small Snacks - Peanut Butter & Molasses were another huge hit in the Lapdog household. They feature the same award-winning recipe as Blue Dog Bakery's original Peanut Butter & Molasses treats. For those of you still concerned about the peanut butter recall, rest assured that Blue Dog Bakery uses a proprietary peanut butter flavor that is made from peanuts, which are not a part of the recall in any way.

All of Blue Dog Bakery’s crunchy biscuits help maintain strong teeth and fresh breath and are also easily digested. They capitalize on two of the hottest trends in pet food – premium and natural – and offer health conscious consumers a low-fat alternative. I can honestly say that I feel good about feeding these treats to my dogs! Knowing that they just can't wait to get their paws on them helps too...

"People consider dogs as family members and we are proud to offer their canine companions a healthier alternative and more nutritious part of a balanced diet," says Margot Kenly, founder of Blue Dog Bakery. “Treats reward and encourage good behavior and that is why a low fat alternative is very important,” adds Kenly.

LENDING A PAW TO ANIMALS IN NEED
Beyond offering a healthier, low-fat and natural alternative to mainstream dog treats, Blue Dog Bakery is also committed to lending a paw to animal welfare. Each year the company helps over 900 animal rescue organizations across the country raise money to save abandoned dogs. "We have an automatic "yes" policy for any organization involved in animal rescue be it a large or small organization," says Kenly. "Our customers thank us for helping out and feel good about buying our products because of it," adds Kenly.

Concerned about chemical additives and animal by-products in other dog biscuits as well as the alarming increase in dog obesity, Margot Kenly left the gourmet food industry in 1998 to start Blue Dog Bakery. Their products can be fetched at hundreds of grocery, pet and natural food stores nationwide.

Sophie says you should go fetch some for your pooches now!

Thanks, Nic. I've starting seeing these in the store and didn't know anything about them. Now I'll get some but be sure to put the box on a high shelf.

I love the box taker! Thor's on a bit of a diet this summer, to take stress off his back leg, so I'll bet he's going to "hound" his Mom to get these.

Corn or chicken meal? Those are Sis's new restrictions...

Good to know about the peanut butter flavor. I haven't bought any peanut butter treats since the recalls. I'm glad these are safe. I'll have to look for them in the store.
