There's a great deal of interest in organic foods for both pets and people. Papa Pete's Organic Pet Treats (http://petesorganicpettreats.com) aren't just natural but gluten free as well. The dog treats, made in Vermont, are also made from hormone and antibiotic free meats. It should be noted that the treats are made to order.
Founders of the company, Lynn Camper and Peter MacDonald say that their standards for making the treats are the same as when they are cooking for their human family members. They believe that good food contributes to good health. That includes treats.

Currently living with a cat, not a dog, I have volunteer dog products testers. In this case, I opted for Fuzzy, a rescue from one of the worst shelters in California. Life is good on the "outside" of the shelter in a loving home. Fuzzy had the pleasure of testing two treats: the Vermont Maple Oatmeal Cookie since the California dog had never tasted maple, and the Woofie Cookie which contains peanut butter. The cookies come in several flavors which are listed on their website.
Shipping was speedy and Fuzzy was soon "taste testing" the cookies. Before I knew it, I had a "report" from Fuzzy, via has owner/Dad Gary Rohde.
"Fuzzy Loves the two flavors he tested. One called Woofie is made with peanut butter and cinnamon. Whats not to like!!!!!!" Hmmm, it sounds like Fuzzy's dad was tempted to eat them, too.
There was one caveat, "As much as Fuzz loves them both......I hate the packaging," said Gary who has a handicap that includes not having much strength in his hands. "Its so difficult to open. I put them in a zip lock bag as you have to cut the original bag to pieces," he added.
Not having tried to open a package I'll take Gary's word for it but he seems to have come up with a workable solution. Unless, of course, the manufacturer changes the packaging at some point in the future.
You'll find the full assortment of flavors, their process and more on the website for Papa Pete's Organic Pet Treats: http://petesorganicpettreats.com
Meanwhile, here's a peek at the treats in their packages...
NOTE: I received no monetary compensation
for this review. Two packages of cookies were
sent to Fuzzy's owner, Gary Rohde to sample
and for his and his owner's reaction to the cookies.
