    Take a Hike

    Take a Hike with Your Dog

    As the weather turns cooler here in the north east, it's a great time to leash up Max and go for a walk. Whether it's around the block, down a country lane or joining one of the many pet friendly "walk for a cause" sponsored walks around the U.S., take advantage of the chance to get some fresh air and exercise.

    It'll do you both good!

    Hi Jennifer,

    I have a wonderful and easy doggie treat recipe using pureed liver, wheat flour, egg, and garlic. It also, however, calls for cornmeal. What is a good substitute for the cornmeal?


    Hi Cathy,

    You can try another type of flour as a subsitute for cornmeal. You could also sub oatmeal for the cornmeal.

    Dog treat recipes are much easier to play with than recipes for people because our dogs have much more limited palates. To them we've baked them a treat, they don't know or care if it seems lumpy to us or the texture isn't quite right. Don't be afraid to play with different ingredients and see what works. Most dogs aren't that picky.
