Sales of the peanut butter dog treats have been gratifying, and we’ve made 390 sales to date and contributed $1,179.00 in proceeds toward Steele Away Home’s veterinary bills. When compared to what the total vet bills have been for the past 14 months, $1,179.00 is not much, I’m sure, but that is over a thousand dollars that did not have to be raised some other way. And, these treats are catching on. Just today, a lady named Macey told me that her dog Chloe will not eat any other treats, now that she’s hooked on these peanut butter cookies. Many others have told me that their dogs love them too.
Comments from people who own large dogs and wanted a bigger treat led me to develop the Big Dog version. This larger, bone shaped treat uses five times the amount of dough as a round treat and comes packed 8 in a bag. Both versions cost $3.00 with all of that money going to the veterinarian bills for Steele Away Home Canine Foster and Rescue.
Recently, large dog owners have been asking about getting a bulk package and discount. So I spent some time today baking up a double batch of cookies: all as Big Dog Version, and experimenting with packaging. I could just use a gallon freezer bag, but that offers little protection against breakage. Then I came across the perfect container:
The only trouble is the only way I know of to get them is to buy these boxes filled with chocolate chip cookies at Food City. I did search for a supplier of new, empty boxes but anything that came close was either too expensive or needed to be purchased in lots of 1,000 units or more. They are good cookies, so I guess I’ll just have to make the sacrifice and eat a bunch of them to keep these boxes coming in.
40 Big Dog treats is the equivalent of 5 bags (which would normally cost $15.00) so I’m pricing the Bulk Box at $12.00. For the moment these are a special order item because they take up a lot of counter space and I don’t want to encroach on Cedarwood’s front desk real estate that much. Let me know when you need one and please give me a couple of days lead time because, believe it or not, I do have other things going on around here besides baking cookies and I like to send them out fresh baked.
So, what do you think? Interested? Please leave a comment below. Thanks!
