Today I just had to tell you about Smart Cookie Treats.

When I first heard of these I was so intrigued because of their slogan:

  • You Make ‘em
  • We Bake ‘em
  • Dogs Love ‘em

“You make ‘em?” – I didn’t quite understand that part until I went on their website…


Talk about a smart cookie #punintended

I could easily spend countless hours looking for snacks/treats for my Boys.

Truth be told I probably do spend more time online studying ingredients for their food then I do at the grocery store for us #oops

Does this sound remotely familiar?

Harley isn’t a finicky eater – however – his stomach has a finicky digestive system. He’s got limited choices.

Many times I find a treat that I know he will enjoy, but as I scan the ingredients I’ll find something listed which causes me to shy away from it.

Smart Cookie is a family owned and operated business with an interesting story about how they started. I can’t help but feel they were created just for us!

I can now select what goes into their treats! #letthetrumpetsroar


Here’s how it works

  • You choose your protein – Beef, Chicken, Salmon
  • You choose your Carbs – Barley, Oats, Brown Rice, Quinoa
  • You Choose your Fruits and Veggies – Blueberries & Green Beans, Cranberries and Carrots

Each batch is made in the USA, by hand, and naturally preserved by going through a two step process of baking and dehydrating.

I selected the ingredients highlighted in red and then found out – it’s a signature cookie called “The Survivor” #whoknew


Chicken, Oats, Blueberries and Green Beans – an army of antioxidants to support the immune system. Additional ingredients in The Survivor were: Organic Ground Flax Seed, Rice Flour, Peanut Butter, Molasses, Sea Salt, Olive Oil, Rosemary Extract.

All ingredients I could pronounce and have eaten myself #lovethis

When you can, please read their story in ABOUT US on their website to learn the message behind the signature treat. #congratulationsBri

The cookies come in small little squares, can break in half with ease and they are tempting to taste because they remind me of protein bar pieces for humans…


Harley inhaled his. Jax followed his first command for a piece and sat down immediately… #puppytraining


I’m going to order The Prima Dogna next. Between the two nutrition blogs I enjoy reading:


Keep The Tail Wagging

I’m learning (and researching) more about the importance of adding Omega-3 into their diets.

Smart Cookie Treats get an 8 paw rating here in Doodleville 🙂 They’re “indescribably doodle*licious”

That’s all we’ve got today! Make this your best Tuesday ever 🙂

In full disclosure: I was not compensated for this review. Smart Cookie Treats sent a box of cookies for Harley & Jax to enjoy. All opinions are my own, swayed only by Harley’s lip smacking and Jax’s tail wagging approval.

We’re back taking another stab with the Tasty Tuesday Blog Hop gang sponsored by Sugar, the Golden Retriever and Kolchak from Kol’s Notes:

    love the idea of choosing your own protein etc. So clever! They should have had you do a give-away!

      IT is a great concept Caren – PAWhaps I will be asked to do a give-away next time…

    Ummm…I’m still sitting nicely and this computer is not dispensing a Smart Cookie? System failure I think. They sound real good and fun to “make yourself”. Enjoy, boys.

      Emma – you are so handy in the kitchen I know you can just look at this cookie and whip up a batch for you and your sisters in no time. Unfortunately I am not that good at baking – but thank the Doodle I’ve found Smart Cookie Treats to do it for me 🙂

  • Oz the Terrier

    Wow! Smart Cookie sounds delish and FUN! I would love to be able to order up my own treats that would be baked just for me!

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 21, 2015

      Go for it Oz, I know you’d love it because you selected all the ingredients yourself….

    Yummy! I remember reading about these somewhere recently and thought “what a cool idea”. Especially for those of us who don’t get to bake enough cookies for our dogs as it is lol.

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 21, 2015

      Ann, cooking is not something I enjoy a whole lot, so I was extremely interested when I saw this. The Boys go nuts over them, so I think this will be a “regular here in Doodleville.

  • Barbara Rivers

    It sure does sound familiar 😉 Their slogan does sound intriguing. I like being able to pick & choose what I feed my pups! Great idea.

      Barbara – this is definitely a staple here in my house #fursure Harley & Jax will do anything I say if I even look towards the container LOL It’s like magic in a box!

    We love both of those blogs you highlighted! They are some great go to resources for pet nutrition. We have heard about these treats and wanted to try them. So cool to see they were a great fit for the Doodles.

      I couldn’t agree with you more about both blog sites! Hope more people took a glance if they didn’t know about Slimdoggy and KTTW – great stuff over there! Harley & Jax really seem to salivate when I bring the container out – let me know if you decide to try some! Have a great week!
