About 36 percent of the families who own dogs will buy birthday presents for these animals, while one third of dog owners have framed pictures on display that have their dogs in them. So essentially, about one third of the U.S. population of dog owners treats dogs like they are just as much a part of the family as kids, and 80 percent of people owning dogs and cats say their animals are able to sense their moods. Research proves this last theory, because scientists have found that dogs are able to smell sadness, fear and anxiety in humans.
The dog owners who are buying presents and framing pictures of their dogs are at the extreme end of the spectrum, so you could only imagine how many more people consider their beloved pups part of the family even though they do not purchase birthday presents for them. For these pet owners who treat their dogs like they were their own kids, homemade dog biscuits are perfect. They say I love you without all the additives and preservatives that line the shelves of grocery store aisles and pet supermarkets.
Homemade dog treats are delicious and simple ways to show affection for these furry friends, who are so loyal to their owners that homemade dog treats seem like the lease these owners can do. Dogs simply love these homemade treats because they are made with love and because they have better ingredients in them too. Pet owners, therefore, are wise to purchase homemade dog treats or create their own at home.
With homemade dog treats, owners can show their appreciation for their pets while simultaneously giving them highly nutritious dog treats made in USA facilities and made using either organic or all natural ingredients. The entire point of homemade dog treats is that they be free from preservatives and additives, which can wreak havoc on dogs’ digestive systems. Certain breeds are more prone to these conditions, like Dalmatians which are entirely white when born and other breeds that simply cannot handle the ingredients found in mass produced dog treats.
Homemade dog treats help boost dogs’ happiness levels while giving them needed nutrients too. Most homemade dog treats are made with special care to include ingredients that are healthier for dogs and that help to strengthen their teeth, their coats, and their joints. Reading the ingredients on the outside of the box will help indicate the intent behind these treats.
