Who Wants a Treat? Celebrate International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!

Stephanie Wan Editorial Date:

We’ve found your dog’s favourite holiday! Treat your dog to their favourite snack on February 23, International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!

The first dog biscuits were developed in the mid 19th century when American James Spratt saw stray dogs eating “hardtack”, a simple biscuit commonly eaten by sailors. The biscuits were made from flour, water, and sometimes salt, and was an inexpensive non-perishable food convenient for long trips at sea. Spratt decided to make a similar food for dogs, and developed a recipe composed of wheat, beetroot, vegetables, and meat.

The modern dog “biscuit” is made from a variety of different ingredients designed to satisfy your dog’s cravings while providing nutrition. Here are our top 5 recommended crunchy biscuits for your furry friend!
