9 Best Gourmet Dog Treats – Featured on The Independent’s “IndyBest”
Call out the word “treat” and dogs are pretty much putty in your hands. But what to do when their taste becomes more discerning than gravy bones? Should your dog fancy itself as a four-legged foodie, the online treat aisle now offers much more than bog-standard biscuits. From fishy bites to help remove tartar to gourmet rewards cooked up by a Michelin-starred chef, Alex Frith of dog lifestyle blog Barkarama rounds up the latest in innovative doggy delights. Note that treats are not a meal replacement so should be served conservatively – and refer to packs for suggested quantities.
