In honor of yesterday's extremely important holiday, National Puppy Day 2015, we'd like to offer our heartfelt 'thanks' to all dog lovers, caregivers and adopters out there that continue to extend oodles of fun and unconditional love to their furry friends.
For those of us that care deeply about the food we feed our pups as if they were our very own offspring, are most fortunate in modern times with the growing number of organic treats on the market today. However, perusing the dog food aisles of your favorite grocer and pet supply stores for nutritional labels that don't contain corn or soy as their first ingredient, is still tiresome and often disheartening. Not only is pet food expensive due to high demand and limited offerings, seems these days slapping a celebrity's name on the bag or modernizing the brand labels without upgrading the actual quality is the go-to business model. Thanks to a number of locally owned bakeries in major cities today though, pure and
organic dog and cat treats are becoming quite the trendy offering, as well as newer companies that solely specialize in homemade goodies for your four-legged friend.
We are truly fond of NYC's own, Spoil Me Rotten Dog Biscuit Co., and their healthy, artisan inspired handcrafted dog treats with all-natural and organic human-grade ingredients enriched with Omega-3's and free of allergens such as soy, corn and wheat. SMR biscuits are the gourmet alternative to spoiling your pup without any fillers, preservatives or chemicals. Their treats are also vet-approved and only contain simple, locally sourced and fresh ingredients. The company's packaging is super cute, and a portion of their proceeds go towards monetary support to animal rescue groups. Even more reason to try SMR biscuits--the founders are true dog lovers and taste-test all of their own products on their little beloved guy, Snowball.
