Scooter caught wind early on that these treats from My Dog Bake Shop were special, homemade treats, and quickly volunteered to participate in this photo-op. Typically, he’s my go-to pup for photo shoots involving food/treats anyways, because he has a high threshold for that particular type of puppy torment, unlike his brother Bear. This proved to be Scooter’s most difficult photo shoot yet though- he could hardly tear his eyes away from the tasty treats long enough to maintain eye contact with me!
Kimberly, the bake chef behind My Dog Bake Shop has a degree in Health & Nutrition that’s put to good use sourcing ingredients that make healthy and sustainable treats for your pup to enjoy. There is a wide variety of treats to choose from, even breed specific treats are available. We tried both the Blueberry Bites, and the Tummy Soothers treats which both went over extremely well with our boys. Scooter has a very sensitive stomach, and I love the idea of feeding him treats specifically designed to help his tummy feel good.
The My Dog Bake Shop treats have that homemade look to them, like something that might come out of my own kitchen (ok, except cuter and more uniform!) which makes me proud to feed them to Bear and Scooter. The packaging is simple but cute, just what you want when you’re seeking out a delicious treat for your dogs.
I was a bit hesitant about the size of the treats (for Scooter) as we almost always have to break up even quarter sized treats into something smaller. As you can see in the photos below, he was able to easily devour them on his own, with them holding together well, but being crumbly enough that he could complete the task- a perfect texture for this pomeranian!
Have you ever purchased homemade pet treats that your dogs went wild over?

One of the other major factors that comes into play when you’re camping with your dogs are their meals. The type and quantity of food you’ll need to pack varies based on both the type and length of your trip. Kibble is heavy to carry if you’re backpack camping, and it’s bulky to store if you’re car camping- while it certainly works, we think there are better methods.
As far as we’re concerned, when it comes to camp meals for the dogs there is nothing better than Bravo’s Homestyle Complete- which is a freeze dried raw food that you simply re-hydrate with water. The pouch you see below is a 1 pound pouch and lasts us through the weekend perfectly. This freeze dried food is full of big hunks of meat, as well as fruits and veggies that I feel good about offering to Bear and Scooter. Bravo Homestyle Completes are available in: Beef, Pork, and Turkey flavors; Bear loves beef best, while Scooter adores the Turkey flavor most.
We use the dogs Sleepypod Yummy Bowls to feed the dogs when we’re camping, because they are perfectly designed for travel and each dog has their own food and water dish. We can fill the lower portion with water (or better yet if we think ahead to freeze it first!) that we offer to the dogs while we’re driving, hiking, or at the campsite. We also keep the Sleepypod Little Germs kit in the car- it’s full of organic, pet safe cleaners that we can use to clean up after some time outdoors.
Because the Bravo HomeStyle Completes pouches are so packable, Bear carries the boys food and treats in his green backpack. Dogs truly love to have a job, and Bear wears his backpack proudly and with purpose. The Bravo Homestyle completes come in a plastic bag that’s waterproof, and we pack the treats similarly so when Bear takes a swim with his backpack on there’s nothing harmed.
Of course while you’re hiking or camping, snacks are always important! Hubby and I pack things like trail mix, dried fruit, nuts, and more along with water for ourselves. The dogs too have drinking water packed, and their favorite low-weight, high protein snack are the PetSafe Indigo Smokehouse Strips. These treats come in both chicken and bacon flavors- Bear and Scooter love the bacon!
These treats are an easy way for us to keep the pups energy up when we stop to take in the view, grab a sip of water, or take a short break. The only thing I don’t like is the smoky/jerky scent left on my hands after I pass out treats to the boys
Have you made it out camping with your dogs yet this year? How do you prepare for your dogs meal and snack needs? I’d love to know what works for you as well!
We recently learned something new about our sweet Scooter…..
….this boy LOVES riding in a golf cart!
