Dine With Your Dog: Trusted Treats & Recipes

Ever on the hunt to find out what makes our pet parent members ‘tick’, we recently sent out a survey all about how you love to treat your furry friends. The results are in and… Wow!

Let’s serve up our survey highlights

Our survey found that 85% of pet parents feel guilty about going out and leaving their pets behind for the evening (it’s important to note here that 100% of the dogs we surveyed said humans should feel guilty for not inviting them out).

We also dug up some delicious data on how you like to treat your furry family. 29% of US pet parents said they enjoy indulging their fur family in human food as a treat a few times per week, with a similar number of pet parents in the UK reporting the same.

Armed with this new knowledge, naturally, we put our heads together to create our very own recipe book - one that can be enjoyed by humans and dogs alike. Yes, really! And with Valentine’s Day fast approaching (and a whopping 58% of pet parents admitting they would prefer to share a couch with their pets over their partners), it’s pawfect timing.

With 7 simply sumptuous dog treat recipes for your pooch to enjoy that are both human and dog-safe, we guarantee these will leave your pup drooling for more!

Be mindful of potential allergies, and seek veterinary advice for adverse reactions. Regular veterinary check-ups are essential for assessing overall health and discussing dietary needs.
