Healthy Dog Treats Recipe: Carrot and Fig Cakes

Dog Treats Your Pet Dog Will Surely Love: Dexter's DelightsWas that dog treat recalled? Do you want your dog to ingest Ethoxyquin, BHA, BHT, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose or maltodextrose?

Trying to stay away from dog treats that have been recalled or have toxic ingredients can be a challenge. Sometimes it is just easier to make your own healthy dog treats. By making dog treats in the comfort of your kitchen, you can ensure quality control. Not only will you be able to purchase organic and even locally sourced ingredients, but you have the opportunity to modify a dog treat recipe to meet the needs of your special dog. Foods and herbs have an effect on our body, and this goes for our dogs too. By choosing specific food, including herbs and spices, you can help boost your dog's mental and physical well-being. Please keep in mind all dogs are different in their dietary needs. If your dog has medical conditions or is on a special diet, please speak to your veterinarian.

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
