Treating yourself to a cupcake can brighten your day, and now your dog can have the same experience! Missoula is home to many delicious dog-friendly restaurants and breweries, as well as bakeries for all your dog treat needs!
Giving your dog a treat can be a healthy and exciting thing. Yummy treats can make a pup’s birthday extra special. They’re a great reward after a walk on a cold winter day, or for practicing some new tricks in the park in the summer. Treats can even turn a bad day into a good one.
The Best Missoula Bakeries for Your Furry Friend
From birthday cakes to training incentives, treats are a wonderful way to reward your dog and keep them happy. These two bakeries offer dog treats in a range of types and flavors, at prices that will make you smile.
Bolt and Bruizer’s Bakery and Barkery
The newest addition to Missoula’s dog-friendly scene, Bolt and Bruizer’s Bakery and Barkery is quickly becoming a favorite among locals. Humans and dogs alike are raving about their selection of baked goods. Not only are the doggy treats divine, the humans can get a yummy coffee and some baked goods for themselves!
Bart n’ Biscuits
This tasty bakery does not have its own brick-and-mortar storefront, but they still serve up some of the very best homemade treats and cakes for your pup. Everything is made to order, and Bart n’ Biscuits prides themselves on serving only the highest quality treats. They even grind their own peanut butter!
Treats Help Break Up the Monotony of Kibble
Doggy treats do not have to be unhealthy. Dog treat bakeries often use better ingredients and take greater care in preparation, making fresh-baked treats much healthier than packaged, over-processed brands. With wholesome ingredients and yummy recipes, homemade dog treats can be a wonderful addition to your pet’s diet.
Tasty treats can also help picky dogs stick to a single type of kibble for their main meals. Sometimes picky dogs will refuse food that they have grown bored of, leading to unnecessary veterinary bills and special diets. A constant rotation of their base food can cause tummy troubles, which is why adding variety to their treats or meal toppers is a better idea.
Dental Care Keeps Dogs Eating Happily
Not only does variety help keep your pup interested in food, so does proper dental care. Oftentimes dental issues can cause severe pain that keeps pets from eating and also increase their risk of illnesses. When dental ailments go untreated, they can lead to dangerous infections and stomach problems from refusing to eat.
If you notice things like a loss of appetite or a decreased interest in food (especially the tastiest of treats), slow chewing, or refusal to have their face touched, you may want to make a dental appointment for your dog.
