Every weekend I make plans to make dog treats; I think it would be cool gift for friends. I have ingredients, I set aside the time, and nothing happens. I was at Target a couple weekend ago and saw jars for canning and got a really cool idea. I can “make” dog treats at home and it'll be fun too.

“Making” Dog Treats for Friends
It's not very complicated. I transferred Finest Fetch dog treats from the original bag to each year, sealing with the lid when full.
- Mailing Label 1 – I added the name of the treats and a “To” and “From” line since these are gifts.
- Mailing Label 2 – I copied the ingredients on the Finest Fetch bag. One reason I chose Finest Fetch for this project is because they are limited ingredients dog biscuits.
One bag of Finest Fetch dog biscuits will fill up two pint sized jars; with a few left over for the dogs who are “helping.”
Why Finest Fetch Dog Biscuits?
When it comes to dog treats, I have a house full to choose from (my dogs are loved), but I chose Finest Fetch dog biscuits, because they smell amazing. When I first opened a bag of Finest Fetch, I wanted to try the treats. That's the experience I wanted my friends to have when they opened the lid for the first, second, and third time.
The jars I chose come with a seal that allows the treats to stay fresh longer. And to save time, type of the labels instead of handwriting them (although handwriting has a personal touch).
My project took no time at all and I was able to create 12 jars that I'll be handing out over the month as we get together for lunch and happy hour. They'll love these; their dogs will love them more.
