Your dog is sure going to be excited to hear this news! Next Monday is National Dog Biscuit Day (also known as International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day). The history of dog treats and dog biscuits has been evolving for centuries. Some of the earliest forms were simply hard-packed grains that easily got stale or moldy. In the mid-1800s, a man named James Spratt saw stray dogs starving on the streets, eating through trash. He wanted to help, and so developed a recipe for biscuits made out of meat, vegetables, and grains, and began distributing and selling them. Later on, in 1908, the Milk-Bone was invented, and companies have continued to improve the quality and health benefits of dog biscuits ever since.
Variety Pet Foods set out to continue adding higher value to dog biscuits, not only offering treats that were made from healthy ingredients, but also tasted great too! And we think we’ve definitely succeeded over the years. From all the feedback we get from dog owners like you, we certainly don’t doubt your pups are wolfing these biscuits down as much as they’re allowed. And while we’ve expanded our original offerings to include items like Homestyle Stews and Mixables, the Homestyle Biscuits remain a favorite.
So in celebration of National Dog Biscuit Day, perhaps you can join us in treating your pups to a Homestyle Biscuit or two. Or, if they’ve already been enjoying them, why not see if they love any of the other flavors, such as:
- Grandma’s Biscuits: Ground Oats, Peanut Butter, Sunflower Hearts, Cane Molasses, Vanilla Extract & Rosemary.
- Sunday Morning Biscuits: Whole Wheat, Ground Oats, Hickory Smoked Bacon, Cheese, Cranberries & Garlic.
- Or any of the assortment packs!
We’ll continue to do our best in bringing delightful and delicious pet treats and meals to locations near you–all you have to do is enjoy how much your dogs love them! Oh, and don’t forget that February is Pet Dental Health Month, and treats like these can be a great way to fight plaque and periodontal disease.
Has your pup been introduced to Homestyle Biscuits? What do you think their favorite flavor is?
