As you walk down the street and are lured into a nearby bakery by the lingering smells of sweet potatoes, blueberries, spinach, peanut butter, carrots and more. It might be a surprise to you to find out that those smells aren’t coming from a hip new restaurant or dessert shop, but rather, those delicious scents are coming from the local dog bakery! Yes, that’s right—there are now even bakeries for dogs!

Yummy Treats to Share

You can find yummy treats for your pooch that include peanut butter bones, sweet potato cats and carrot-flavored birds. On a side note, the bakeries assure customers that no cats or birds are ever harmed during the baking process. If you locate a bakery for dogs in your neighborhood, chances are that the owners and employees are animal lovers and serve only the highest quality products. What’s really great about a bakery especially for dogs is the opportunity to bring your furry friend along. There’s no guarantee that your hungry hound will stop at only inhaling one snack, so often times, the snacks are behind glass for just this reason.

If you’re searching for puppy dog food, you should look for the same ingredients as well as increased antioxidants, minerals, proteins and fats for proper growth and development.

Ingredients to Avoid

Ingredients to avoid when choosing any dog food include the following:

  • Bone meal
  • Meat byproducts
  • Artificial sweeteners
    • Glucose
    • Fructose
    • Sucrose
  • Unhealthy fats
    • Vegetable oil
    • Lard
  • Vague grains
    • Rice meal
    • Oat hulls
  • Chemical additives
  • Artificial preservatives
  • Dyes
    • Blue 2
    • Red 40

Basically, you want to find ingredients in a dog food that sound appetizing to you. If you enjoy eating the ingredients (in a salad as opposed to a bowl on the floor), chances are that your pooch will too.

Notably, when you’re in a dog bakery, take a few minutes to ask the employees for their recommendations on healthy options for your canine companion. The employees are often pet owners themselves and will be happy to share their favorite dog food brands and products.
