I've loved making treats for my dog for training and I'm looking at starting a little online business selling dried liver treats, cakes and biscuits.

Do you think this is something people would be interested in buying?

I'm thinking of promoting through FB with my own website and then attending school fetes etc next year to spread the word.

To be honest I wouldn't, as like you I make my own. My two will do anything for a piece of liver cake, so if you can convince others how much dogs like it maybe there's a market for it.

Best of luck, anyway!

Thanks drama it is nice to bake for them isn't it? She follows me around the kitchen.

Persuasion is maybe a way to go and the fact that liver cake stinks the house out so much, better to buy from me smile

I make my own liver jerky, it's the only thing he really loves, it stinks but the alternative products made only from real ingredients are just too expensive. Keep meaning to make liver cake but just haven't got around to it. Good luck.

I buy online but I buy all my dog food online as the best price I can find means I buy 2 x 15/18Kg sacks at a time.

I buy all my dog treats online, as long as they are natural, grain free etc, reasonably priced I would give them a go.

As long as you know that there is more to it than just baking in the kitchen.

For a start do you know if you need to produce them in a stainless steel commercial kitchen, will you need insurance if someones dog chokes or gets sick from eating them? You will need correct labelling ingredients etc. Pet Food health and safety rules are just as strict as peoples.
