Dog treats recipe question

Q: Can I buy a regular birthday cake from the store for my dog?

A: First of all, it is important to realize that a dog is not a human. The reason we make that statement is because it is necessary to communicate to dog owners that not all human food is appropriate for their pets. There are still people who are buying chocolate cakes to celebrate their dog's birthday! (Yikes!)

Dogs do not need the sweet, sugary flavors for their treats and cakes. They have a heightened sense of smell and certain flavors that we as humans might find repulsive, they will embrace with drooling and salivation in blockbuster proportion.

We offer dog treats recipe ideas throughout this site. The ingredients call for using human food. Dog treats are not merely a can of Alpo mixed into a biscuit mix as some people might think. But there are certain human foods that are toxic to dogs. Chocolate is one. If you want to make a "chocolate" dog cake, you can use carob to simulate the chocolate look.
