Gourmet dog treats are one the fastest growing trends in the pet industry. Not only are people concerned with what their pets are eating, they are also in the habit of spoiling them too! Pampering your pup is always fun and what better way to show them how much you love them then by getting some treats. So where can you get your pooch some of these pawsitively delicious snacks?
Gourmet Dog Treats NYC
Buttercup’s PAW-tisserie is a gourmet dog bakery located in the heart of NYC. They specialize in baking all natural, healthy dog treats and they are by far one of the best pet bakeries around. What I really like about this dog bakery is the fact that they only use all natural ingredients. You won’t any artificial flavorings, food colorings, or unhealthy ingredients such as sugar and salt. Their doggie-licious treats are baked fresh absolutely no added sugar, salt or preservatives. If you are looking to get your pup a healthy head on down to Buttercups or place an order online.

While it’s no suprise that you will certainly be able to find gourmet dog treats at these canine bakeries in big cities like Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, another one of my favorite dog bakeries called the Kool dog Kafe can be found in Albuquerque New Mexico. The Kool dog Kafe has been around since 1999 and they have an excellent product. I have been buying dog treats for my dog from this dog bakery for the past few years and I have always been very pleased. My dog is too! The bakery has some of the cutest seasonal treats. Their holiday treats are some of my favorite.
My dog loves the ice cream cone treats made by Kool dog Kafe. The ice cream cones are cinnamon flavored dog treats and when I open up the package my dog goes crazy. These dog treats actually smell like homemade cookies for people. I would love to get the dog recipe for these treats! They are decorated so beautifully too. The chocolate is actually made from carob chips and the sprinkles are sesame seeds.
All of the pet treats made at by Kool dog Kafe are handmade. They are also all natural dog treats as well. The bakery only uses all natural ingredient in their dog treats so feeding your dog these types of treats is like baking them homemade biscuits in your own kitchen.
Another really great place to find gourmet dog treats is the Three Dog Bakery.

How To Make Gourmet Dog Treats
A lot of people find that they enjoy making homemade dog treats for special occasions. Holidays and birthdays are great times to roll up your sleeves and bake your pooch from tasty treats. A few years ago a friend of mine and I published three doggie cookbooks that we sold to raise money for animal rescues. They are full of easy homemade dog treat recipes and I am including one of these recipes below.

The following recipe will make a dozen of delicious homemade gourmet dog treats called Veggie Paws.
