First, Canines for Veterans saves dogs’ lives, rescuing them from shelters. Next, they teach military inmates how to train the dogs to serve wounded veterans.

This gives the inmates a purpose and helps rehabilitate them.

Finally, the trained dogs are paired with wounded veterans, assisting them with everyday tasks and enriching their lives. www.caninesforveterans.com

Harry Barker contributes a portion of the proceeds of three specially designed products to Canines for Veterans. Please join us in saluting the folks at Harry Barker! Check out the awesome fun products that will help keep this program alive!

DIY Holiday Dog Biscuits

One festive holiday project that keeps the kids busy and tails wagging is make your own dog biscuits. A simple dough cut in fun and unique shapes and displayed in a pretty container or serving tray is a great shareable gift for neighbor dogs and pet parents alike.

Bubba Roses Biscuit Company Organic Dog biscuit Cook Book is my goto cookbook for simple, organic and healthy dog treats. Below is my all time fav recipe thanks to it’s easy prep and resounding approval from the dogs.

Cheese Please
1 1/2 c. oat flour
1 1/2 c. brown rice flour
1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
1 c. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix throughly until a dough forms. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4″ thickness.

Previous to baking cut your biscuits using fun shapes like squirrels, fire hydrants and the classic dog bone from a Vermont designer Ann Clark. AnnClark.com offers these and a wide variety of other unique cookie cutter shapes for $3.99 each.

Place on an un-greased cookie sheet – they can be pretty close together as they don’t spread much while cooking. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.

Once your dog treats are cooled and ready to serve, keep them fresh in an air-tight treat jar placed near the front door of your house. When dog guests arrive, welcome them to your house with a delicious, healthy treat! I found this snazzy little treat container available for $12.99 from homegoods stores nationwide.

Celeb-chef Rachael Ray and others storm the pet food aisle!

My Dog Food is more famous than yours…
Not only are dog dressing like us, but they are eating like us too. Celebrity chefs have been serving up delightful dishes for humans and now they are changing their focus to include the four-legged set. American’s favorite morning TV host and celeb-chef, Rachael Ray has expanded her empire into the pet industry. She recently launched a great new line of healthy dog food called “Rachael Ray Nutrish” made with all natural ingredients and zero fillers. Nutrish is available at most grocery stores nationwide.

Also, getting in on the PupChef game is Norman Levitz a professional chef & culinary educator from famed cooking school Johnson & Wales. Levitz and his business partner Neil Reilly teamed up to create Wagatha’s – Extraordinary Biscuits for Dogs. Vermont-based Wagatha’s is dedicated to making only 100% organically certified treats (100% organic is no easy feat!) which are not only healthy but tasty too. Another added bonus for your Mishpucha dogpack is that the treats are Kosher! Wagatha’s are available online as well as select retailers nationwide.

At the other end of the spectrum there are some less than stellar celebrity endorsed foods that don’t quite cut the mustard. Eight is Enough actor Dick van Patten’s Chinese-takeout for dogs was recalled due to botulism and then eviscerated as a Doggie Don’t previously on PupStyle. Celebrity Chef hasn’t-been Rocco DeSpirito helped launched an alluringly titled (eg.”Yellowfin Tuna Florentine with Garden Greens”) yet poorly constructed (choline chloride, artificial flavors & meat-by-products – Yum!) line of Elegant Medley cat food from Fancy Feast.

Online illustrator 14 got in on the act creating a gallery of imagined celeb-chef dog foods from the likes of Mario Batali, Paula Deen and others.
