This fund raising campaign centers around healthy, home made, dog treats.
Peanut Butter Dog Treats
For these treats we use certified non-GMO whole wheat flour, xylitol-free peanut butter, milk, egg, and baking powder to make a scrumptious snack for your canine companion.
Our offerings use human-grade foodstuffs and are prepared in a sanitary environment so they are consumable by people as well as dogs. So if you want to see what’s got your dog so excited, go ahead and try one. Just remember their palate is not as accustomed to seasonings as yours is.
Where are these found?
These treats are always available at Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital in Newport TN. We also bring them to public events like the upcoming Quilts & Canines festival Sept 15th in Cosby TN.
Shipping Dog Treats
Some folks have asked if these treats are available for mail-order. Shipping them brings up several concerns:
- COST To avoid having to calculate individual shipping prices on each order, I’d need to use USPS Flat Rate shipping. Their smallest box is 8 5/8” x 5 3/8” x 1 5/8” – I can fit three bags of dog treats in that, product total $9.00. But then I’d have to charge another $7.20 for postage. Ouch! The next size larger box is roughly 13”x11”x4” – I should be able to fit a dozen bags in there and the shipping cost is $13.65. A better value as far as cost of shipping per bag, but who’s going to want to order a dozen bags of treats at a time?
- BREAKAGE Common carriers are not known for treating packages gently. I’d hate to have a customer’s dog treats arrive as so many bags of chips and dust. Using larger boxes to allow for sufficient cushioning shoots up the shipping cost.
- SPOILAGE These treats are considered shelf stable for specific time frames based on normal conditions in the average home. Having them packed into semi’s and sent across the country in summer could subject them to high temperatures that could hasten spoilage. I would never want to make anyone’s dog sick.
- TIME There is never enough time to do all the things I want to do, need to do, must do. Becoming a professional dog cookie baker just isn’t in that plan.
