Behind the Scenes of Making a New Treat (Part 1)

Kari Kalway

Time to pay attention to the woman behind the curtain...

Have you ever wondered about the process behind creating your pup's favorite treats? It may surprise you, but it is much more complex then just mixing up a new batch. We hope you enjoy our blog series focused on revealing the Eight Steps in creating a new Puddles Barkery dog treat. 

Step One: Research

There are a vast amount of online recipes for dog treats and human dishes alike. We start by picking a theme for the next flavor. Each dog treat recipe fitting the theme of our new treat is evaluated for healthy ingredients and the benefits of each ingredient in a dog's diet. We also will add our own take to an existing recipe, like switching out the vegetable oil for applesauce or coconut oil. 

We are happy to announce that we have found the theme for our next Puddles Barkery treat flavor (Stay tuned for the product reveal in an upcoming blog) and will start Step Two this week!

Step Two: Taste Testing

Lucky girl, Kora is our official taste-tester. We start by making 2-3 versions of the new recipe to see if Kora likes the treat. Lucky for us, Kora is very particular about her treats. She determines which version is the best recipe. She will also be happy to let us know if we need to go back to the drawing board and repeat Step One.
