Bake-A-Bone: The Original Dog Treat Maker

Updated on February 22, 2018

The "Natural" Solution for Better Dog Health

When it comes to my pets I am very particular as to what they eat. Finding the right snacks and treats that aren’t loaded with a ton of preservatives is almost impossible.

After my dog was diagnosed with diabetes almost everything over the counter was off limits to her. Buying natural products was very expensive at almost $1.00 per dog biscuit and if I ordered something, that didn’t include the shipping costs.

Most of the time my dog would get a small treat after her medication, as a reward for enduring the pain of the needle for her insulin. I had to bake boneless chicken breast each day; because I couldn’t find anything that she could eat without making her blood sugar rise.Then one Christmas someone gave us a package for making treats for dogs.

Being able to control your dog’s intake of ingredients is a major thing when it comes to proper care for your pet’s health, especially if they have a medical problem. Bake-A-Bone is a great way to do that with their mixes being all natural with no preservatives.The recipes also are organic and gluten free which is also a plus for making your own biscuits.

Why I Like this Product

There are so many products on the market beckoning for us to try them, boasting that their items are the best. We did a lot of research and found that most pet treats have BHT which is a plastic of sorts and other chemicals that actually can cause a number of health issues such as kidney failure, diabetes, blindness, bone loss and a slew of other things.

With this baking tool and the proper healthy recipes, you can have a fresh supply of treats on hand for your pet without all the side effects. The recipes allow you to tweak them to fit the need of your pet and are wheat, soy, corn and gluten free based.This is especially important for a diabetic pet.

Recipes cover a variety of tastes like beef, liver, chicken, cheese, peanut butter (one of my dog’s favorites) and even include vegan/vegetarian. If you buy the package mix it will take about 30 minutes to bake. You’ll get 20-24 biscuits from the batch.

When you pour or spoon the batter in the baking slots, try not to overfill them or they will get messy. If that happens, just break off the excess so the biscuit comes out clean.Don’t worry about the overflow; the dog will think they’re a treat too. Actually, they're not bad people food either.

The baking machine itself cleans up easily after each use and has a place to wind up the cord for storage. It’s really only about the size of a large waffle maker.

I know it’s easier to buy already made biscuits, but it is much healthier for your pet if you can make them yourself. Aren’t our pets worth it?

Gift Giving Ideas

Each year we give each of the dogs on our street a “bone-a-pet-tite” for Christmas. Having the Bake-A-Bone products makes it easy to do and they are fresh, all-natural, soft(ish) and more importantly healthy.

Make a batch of snicker poodles, puppy pot-roasts, banana biscotto or birthday bones to give to your neighborhood dogs.

      Pawpawwrites not surprising with all the new gadgets they come up with each year. It is a neat one though.

      Sylvestermouse that's true the pups will eat better, but so will you. Most of the recipes are for humans as well. Think how funny it would be to pack a bone shaped biscuit/cookie in a lunch.

      What a fabulous find! I love it! I would probably have to fight my husband for who was going to bake-a-bone, but what fun this would be. Of course, there is always the side benefit that our pups would get healthier treats :)
