The “treat-season” is upon us and that is true not only for humans, but for the dogs too – because who doesn’t fill a stocking for their dog on Christmas eve?!
While I do have a couple of go-to treats for dog lessons and training sessions (I will get to those in a future post), I do have a real thing for finding great treats for my dogs that are healthy and wholesome. Because I also love to buy local wherever possible I have been buying some of the locally available treats for years, but just recently I came across 3 new local dog treat brands.
Can you imagine my excitement? Six Maui based dog treat companies, all making wholesome, healthy dog treats? I absolutely love it! Of course I have been buying all of them!
But what do the dogs think about our Maui own variety? I thought we put them to the real world test and see how the pups like them! Enjoy the video below and have a look!
