Dogs Spoiled By Fancy Treats

MOLINE, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some gourmet doggie snacks may cause fancy Fido to shun regular store-bought treats.

Happy Dog Bakery in Moline, Illinois, bakes fresh doggie treats daily – and they ain’t your regular dog bone.

The fancy gourmet snacks include a “Liver’s Lover” treat shaped like a heart, hand-dipped Easter bunnies, cookie sandwiches, and organic “Beagle Bagels.”

Bakery owner Allison Bolduc says pooches know they’re eating the creme de la creme of dog treats, and once they go gourmet, they’re hooked on the finer things in life.

Some owners say their pups will only eat the gourmet treats now, and turn up their noses at store-bought snacks.

Bolduc says the fancy treats make a good reward for something big like potty training or for birthdays and holidays.

And while dogs are wild about them, she’s not sure whether or not they do more elaborate tricks just to get their paws on one.
