A Look at Baked Dog Treats and Unconditional Love

Pet Spaces visits two families where the bond between child and dog is one of unconditional love. Chef Amanda Hassner co-creator Beneful Baked Delights, explains what inspired the creation of the oven baked snacks, complete with tastes, textures, and aromas made just for dogs.

Mom from our first family speaks fondly of her two daughters, Amy and Kelly, and their dog “Bear”, “The girls take turns holding his leash, and Bear loves walks. Sometimes I wonder who is walking who! The girls love taking care of Bear!”

Our second family profile shows brothers Christian and Gabriel and the family dog Shiloh. As seen through the eyes of Mom; “My sons and our family dog, Shiloh are such great friends. They love to play and rough house, but sometimes I do have to remind the boys to take it easy! Shiloh is so easy going, and stays with the boys a lot when they are home.”

Both families love to treat Bear and Shiloh with the array of treats Chef Amanda and her team have crafted for dogs of all sizes, shapes and tastes.
