My dogs love it when they get to be the guinea pigs for a product review here on the blog. They both love to eat, and nothing excites them more than the sound of a bag of treats being opened.

As I've mentioned before, I make most of my dogs' food at home in my own kitchen. It's quite an undertaking, having good food on hand for two meals a day for two hungry dogs, but it's totally worth it.
