Wholesome Homemade Dog Treats




Welcome to Paw Paw’s Wholesome Homemade Dog Treats. My name is David Hawks, owner of and baker at my small one man dog bakery.  I mix my treats in small batches, hand roll and cut every one, and bake them exactly the way you would. I want to thank you for coming to my website and checking out treats I believe in… and you can trust. 

I use only the finest ingredients, the same ones you already know, trust, and use yourself. Products such as Smithfield Bacon, Swanson or College Inn Chicken Broth, Bruce’s Yams, King Arthur Whole Wheat Flour, Gold Medal Flour, and Bob’s Red Mill Brown and White Rices as well their Wheat Germ.  I even make my own peanut butter.  I use a all natural, plant based preservative manufactured by a Dr. of Veterinary Science which, in addition to preserving my treats, increases the vitamin e in the product. My own dogs taste test every batch of treats I produce. I’m serious about what I do.

My treats are not health food. They aren’t exotic. They are plain, wholesome, everyday treats for lovable everyday dogs.  With that said, I want to point out that none of my treats contain dairy or egg…common allergens. For dogs with gluten or wheat allergies, I offer my rice treats.  For dogs on a low protein diet at 6.6% my Chicken Broth and Rice or Sweet Potato and Rice Treats cannot be beat. For Vegetarians my Sweet Potato and Rice treats are perfect.  

I offer both my Peanut Butter and Chicken Broth and Bacon treats in two sizes, standard ( about the size of a half dollar) and little bits ( a nugget size piece, perfect for training and weight control on stylishly stout dogs). Each 8 oz bag contains approximately 30 - 35 standard size pieces, 1 treat a day for a month (.27 cents a day) or two treats a day for two weeks.  My treats are a crisp hard treat, though I have heard from customers that a little olive oil helps soften them for dogs who prefer a slightly softer treat. Olive oil is also excellent for their skin and coat.

I want to discuss a necessary evil…shipping. I’m a very small company and I can’t afford to offer you free shipping. I know many of the larger online companies do. Shipping charges vary according to how much is ordered and where you are located but tends to be just about the same whether you order 1 bag or 6. The more you order, the cheaper per bag shipping ends up being. Consider fewer large orders instead of more small orders. Shopping with small local companies helps our local economy. 

I hope you will give Paw Paw’s Wholesome Homemade Dog Treats a try. Your dogs will LOVE them!


2020 has been an interesting and challenging year so far and I can't wait to see what else it brings us. As you are all aware, social gatherings have been cancelled for the foreseeable future and as a small business which relies on those gatherings, it's been difficult. 

As a result, I am working on a monthly treat plan which will give members a small monthly savings as well as include shipping. The program will include a special cookie for your dogs birthday as well as a stocking stuffer for the holidays.  Plans are to limit the number of participants to 100. I'll be announcing it soon. In the mean time, if this sounds like something you'd like, drop me a line and get yourself added to the list.
