Would it be possible to mix dog and rat treats. Though my dogs would probably be just fine with ratty sized ones since they are small themselves. I would love to make an order if you are still baking these!

I have to admit, my dogs give me that Look when I give the ratties treats so I've given them a rat treat or two.  They LOVE them as well and all 3 range from Med/Large, Large and XXL, they don't care that there small hahaha

Mixing them would be fine :) I can make the dog treats just like the rat ones, but they will be  1" in diameter. I also have hearts and I have a new rat/mouse cookie cutter. They are about 1.5" long and super cute lol.

Very funny andi lol. My bunnies do the same thing & give that look of "why can't I have rat treats" LOL

Time for another order. My girls can't enough of these treats. I actually got them trained to line up to get their treats, I was never able to do this with other treats, like yoggies.

That is too funny lol. I keep a little container of treats on the girls cage and they climb up the wire and nudge the treat container all the time lol.

Got my treats, and WOW! Of course Gollum gobbles them up, as he does most treats I give him, but my girls are soooo picky, I don't know that they have ever liked a single treat I have tried to give them. But I offered them each one of your treats, and all 3 of them practically ripped them out of my hand, and inhaled them!! Honey liked them so much, she finished hers at record speed, and then stole the rest of Lucy's treat and ran away, hahaha. I am amazed. :eek: So thank you girl, your treats rock!! :bow:

They are crunchy and they stay for some time. My last two batches lasted 5 months before their smell changed somewhat, but my girls hardly minded. They freeze well and thaw quickly.

Thanks Vallis :) I've even kept them long in a container when I make a big batch for them :)
I'm out of chia seeds right now though just so everyone knows.

I would love to place an order - But I have a question

The add in's .... How do you choose?? :yelcutelaugh:

Quote
Mix in's: Cocoa Powder (rats only), Garlic, Turmeric, Organic Ginger, Cinnamon, Oatmeal,Organic Chia Seeds & Flax Seed.  You can choose up to 2 Mix in's after that it's .25 per Mix in each.

Like what do rats like? / make them healthy

So... my question is.... What do you recommend crazydaisy?

ooh, 1 more question

If I were to get two 4oz bags, one bag a flavor and the other one a different flavor... how much would that be with shipping? (is shipping going to change?)

thanks!

Oh my gosh they like everything lol. it's really hard to choose. All the mixin's have some little benefit in them really. Flax for the skin, garlic for the lungs & cocoa I just read recently helps with strokes. I can go on and on lol.
Shipping for 2, 4oz bags of treats would be $3.52

Personally, I just ask myself... what would I eat?

For example:
  • Pumpkin pie with cinnamon
  • Apple with oatmeal and cinnamon
  • Pizza with garlic
  • Plain with ginger, turmeric, and garlic
  • Plain with oatmeal and flax
  • Blueberries and flax
  • Sweet potato, ginger, and garlic
  • Sweet potato, ginger, and garlic
  • Banana and cocoa powder (,and flax)
  • Carrot, cinnamon, oatmeal, and cocoa powder
  • Honey and Oats with cinnamon

That's a great idea!

I never thought about that. I went ahead and for my first time just ordered pumpkin pie with oatmeal. But when I order again I will for sure have to do that!

I'm going to have to be ordering for my pups too.  ;)

Awesome! How did you like the square shapes compared to the round vallis? They seem to stay harder and they break right in half which I like. Of course I don't always split them up, spoiled babies lol

I actually think the girls prefer the squares over the rounds.
