Barker’s Fetch’em Sticks

21 Oct

Here at Snuffy’s Bakery, we love creating new flavors. Not that dogs in general or Snuffy is a fussy eater, in fact, she is anything but fussy, it’s always good to give our dogs something different.

Especially if you’re into dog training, having a bucket full of assorted treats is extremely useful. This is because dogs are good with association and anticipation. If you’re always feeding him/her the same treats, he/she gets used to it and will anticipate that it’s the same flavor you’re giving him/her. Although they will still gobble up the treats, their enthusiasm will decline eventually.

However, if you’re always changing treats, and different flavors are given at random, there’s always something exciting for them to look forward to. That keeps their excitement and enthusiasm high as it’s tough to anticipate what’s next coming out from your treat bag!

Alright, so much said about variation, check out the new addition to our treat bag – “Barker’s Sticks” (In case you’re wondering, Barker is a cute li’l plush dog).

Made with molasses, oats, eggs and almonds, each of these sticks have a nutty-sweet flavor and is packed with fiber from oats. Though the aroma of molasses may seem faint to our human noses, it’s a drool-stimulant for our dogs.

Snuffy didn’t want to leave the kitchen when I was preparing the dough. When they were out from the oven, she couldn’t keep her eyes off them!

Cut into stick-like, these cookies are easy to break into smaller pieces of your desired sizes. It’s ideal for dogs of all shapes and sizes. Of course your dogs would love to be fed the entire stick or perhaps, the entire bunch of sticks, you won’t wanna over-feed them!

Moca’s Birthday Pupcakes

29 May

Think peanut butter… think cream cheese… mmm…. yum yums!

These pupcakes are not exactly for pups or dogs only. They’re so yummy that the owners would love to have some too! Like I’ve always said, the treats from Snuffy’s Bakery are good enough for the dog owners too as long as you don’t mind having no sugar and no salt in their food.

These lovely Pupcakes are made specially for Moca, the birthday boy. Moca doesn’t like bananas. These peanut butter cupcakes, top with peanut butter cream cheese should match his palate.

Why cupcakes instead of a whole cake?

Cupcakes are a fab in the human world ya? So how can the pooches be left behind? Cupcakes are also a lot more easier to manage in terms of serving size. Great for parties and just as good for your dogs and yourselves! Give him/her 1 cupcake a day or 1 cupcake after meal or 1 cupcake for tea time! It’s simplt a really great serving size.

And of course, they’re really cute and pretty aren’t they?!

The peanut butter cupcakes are really soft and moist, with peanut butter flavor in every bite. Thanks to Moca, Snuffy and I got to share one of the cupcakes. Snuffy loves it and so do I! Thought it’s actually a pretty good recipe for my human friends, who are watchful of their diets too!

Dancing Dog Carob Bones

10 May

“Dancing Dog Carob Bones”?? hee… yeah! I could have just named it “Carob Bones” but Snuffy couldn’t stop dancing when I whipped out the big carob bone cookies.

She was anxiously following me around when she smelled the cookies… And the moment she saw the big cookies, she started tapping her front paws *left right left right* and moving front and back (think “cha cha dance”)… hence… “Dancing Dog Carob Bones”!

Typically we make smaller treats, meant for bite-size. But these larger ones make lovely doggy gifts for your dogs and also as gifts for other dogs – both big and small.

Looks can be deceiving. The Dancing Dog Carob Bones may look big and tough but they’re actually soft enough to be broken into smaller bits for the dainty ones. I’m sure even the small dogs will enjoy a BIG treat sometimes so, just give them the entire cookie and watch them indulge in every bite.

I can’t help wondering how the carob bones taste like when I see Snuffs loving every bit that was given to her. It made me wanna have a taste of it myself coz they do smell good!

The combination of carob and milk give the cookie its fragrance and it is not bitter due to the sweetness from milk…

No wonder Snuffs loves them so much!

Doctors-Away!

6 Feb

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”

Apples are excellent detoxifier and is beneficial to the digestive tract. It’s good to feed your dogs with a small portion of apples as an after meal snack. Apple peel may sometimes be a little hard and your dog may not like it. It’s just as good to feed without peel.

Made with apples, cinnamon and a hit of honey, these drop cookies smell like apple pie.

“Doctors-Away!” might make your dogs eat their apples without much fuss! As we all know that the fruit peels are generally rich in fiber, we keep the apple peels on, plus giving an extra boost of roughage with rolled oats.

Oats are not only great source of fiber, there are plenty of good stuffs loaded in these little oats.

Inositol that maintains blood cholesterol level (but I’m not sure if dogs get high cholesterol since they don’t really eat seafood! :p); calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamin B complex. Alright… these are good minerals and vitamins for us but they might be good for our dogs too!

Luck of the Irish

28 Jan

Vegetables are found to have powerful antioxidants that may help to reduce chronic disease and slow down the rate of aging of our dogs.

It seems likely that vegetables added to a dog’s diet would have some of the same positive health benefits seen in humans. So what are good vegetables to should be included in our dogs’ diet and what are not? Most vegetables, especially when cooked to improve digestibility, are safe for our dogs. With exception of onions. NO ONIONS!

Besides antioxidants, veggies also provide significant source of soluble fiber and roughage, which can promote intestinal health in our dogs.

If your dog is picky and doesn’t like to eat his/her greens, try some of our “Luck of the Irish” and you might really be in luck!

Every bite of these green treats are filled with green vegetables as you can see in the cookies before they get baked in the oven. The natural green in the dough comes from the natural vegetable juice since we blend the vegetables finely so that they’re easily cooked and digested.

Your dog would probably spit the vegs out if fed on it’s own. We add some garlic and sprinkle a tat bit of cheese over the cookies and viola! The fragrant will send your dogs begging for more vegs!

Pina Colada

24 Jan

YES! It’s Pina Colada for pooches!

Nah… it’s not a drink though… but hmm… we can come out with the drink version later. It’s cookies for now!

One treat but 2 refreshing tropical fruits will send your dogs to the Bahamas and back!

 

Every bite is filled with coconut and pineapple bits but don’t you worry that the sourness of the pineapples will turn your dogs away… coz the honey will do the trick. Just a little…

Feed your dogs some of these while you sip that Pina Colada cocktail… or you can share the treats with your dogs too!

Treats are 100% edible by dog owners too!

Monkey Business

26 Nov

Chocolates are our best friend… well, for most of us that is. It’s a comfort food that lifts our spirits when we’re down or stressed out.

Chocolates however, are lethal in dogs because they contain theobromine, which is toxic to dogs. But the good news is, we can substitue chocolate with Carob!

 

Carob pods come from carob trees. The pods have a taste reminiscent of sweetened cocoa, but without the theobromine, caffeine or other psychoactive properties of cocoa, which are lethal in dogs. It’s definitely a safe substitute. So NEVER, NEVER, EVER, EVER feed your dogs with chocolates!

“Monkey Business” is a hit with the pooches like the way chocolates melts most of us… made with carob powder and banana, it has a nice banana fragrant with a hint of roasted cocoa aroma. These “little monkeys” are slightly soft and have a slight crunch on the outer crust. How do we know? Treats at Snuffy’s Bakery are made with human-grade ingredients. If the treats are edible to our dogs, they’re definitely edible to humans. So try some yourself!

Phoebe’s “Beef-Day” Cake

Got Phoebe a “Beef-day cake” for her birthday last year. The entire cake screams “Beef liver! Beef liver! Beef liver!” and so did the pooches at her birthday party.

The cake is made of beef liver, eggs and organic wholemeal flour. Decorated with yummy cream cheese and crunchy beef liver nuggets… hmm… you can imagine the dogs’ expressions when they gobble down the birthday cake!

Bark for A Cause

19 Nov

 

Most of us love chocolate… it gives us comfort and cheers us up when we’re down. But do you know that chocolates are toxic to our dogs?

Chocolate contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs. Dogs can’t metabolize theobromine as effectively as humans. This allows it to build up in their system until it reaches toxic levels of concentration. This may lead to a variety of health problems including death due to cardiac arrest.

“Bark for A Cause” is made of Carob (the brown half). Carob is a substitute for chocolate. So now both our dogs and us can enjoy the happiness of chocolates/carobs without worriers!

Snuffy definitely loves the taste of carob and soy milk. You can tell that by her extreme attentiveness when she knows that I have the treats in my hand!
