CLEVELAND (WKYC) — When it comes to our furry friends, nothing is too much work, including making snacks from scratch.

Erin Steidel, who owns a Three Dog Bakery in Cleveland, stopped by the studios of our sister station WKYC to share one recipe for her bakery’s delicious homemade dog treats.

To help make sure the snacks were up to snuff, staff members brought in their own VIPs (very important pups) to taste test.

The result? A resounding four paws up for the yummy nibbles.
