Megan is the Chief Executive Officer (and chief cook and dishwasher) of Bear Bones Bakery. She has a long history of being involved in cooking and baking, and a lifelong commitment to her dogs, including her current service dog, Grizzly (who inspired the Bear in Bear Bones).

Grizzly

Megan's Service Dog, Chief Taste Tester, Quality Control Supervisor

The greeter of Bear Bones Bakery, Megan’s Service Dog, and always happy to meet new friends. He was the inspiration behind the bakery, and has several bones in honor of him.

Maverick

Grizzly's Administrative Assistant

Welcome, Maverick, to the Bear Bones Bakery Family. This little cutie is Grizzly's trainee for service dog, and taste tester. He is learning quickly with his Bear Bones Bakery treats! Here he came to visit at an event, and was a great hit!

DOG TREATS

What we make is simple: high-quality wholesome dog treats from real ingredients. The garnishes on our treats come from the heart with which we produce them, and not from unnecessary fillers and decorations.

Megan, I want to say thanks of your 'extreme gift of kindness' in that you stopped me and gave me a baked doggie treat yesterday morning here in Landfall. What a nice thing to do and a wonderful way to advertise your product. My little cocker spaniel enjoyed the treat. I'll look on the internet for your site shown on your business card and see if I can give you some business. Thanks again! (Bear Bones Bakery Note: the sample flavor was Pina Colada, which I handed out 11-16-20 to Ed's adorable black and white cocker spaniel).

Grizzly and Maverick want to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween! They had lots of fun seeing the kids dressed up, and a bunch of dogs too!

Maverick dressed up like Cookie Monster for his very 1st Halloween (and turned 9 months old a few days before). 

Grizzly, of course, was the treat guard, of both the Tootsie Rolls and the Bear Bones Bakery treats we handed out to people who had dogs with them, or told us they had dogs...

I also got a picture of Luna and Warrior in their Halloween finest...


I hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween.

From all of us at Bear Bones Bakery, here's hoping today was full of treats (and Grizzly and Maverick sure got to taste test while Megan baked!), and no tricks.

Grizzly here, and I have to tell you all about what mom and I did today...I had so much fun! We had the Craft Show at the Butler County Fairgrounds, and I had so much fun sniffing all the smells from the fair. Mom said I smelled horse smells and pig smells!

We set up our yummy Bear Bones Bakery Treats, and I just sniffed all the yummy goodies! But I know Mommy says they are for other doggos to have my treats, so I was a good boy (although you know my Mommy shared some with me, because after all, they are named after me and I am a taste tester!).

These were the Training Treats Mom had boxed up and priced, in single flavors...

Mom also had Training Treats available to mix and match by the pound...


And some of our Full Size Bear Bones Bakery flavors (which are part of the Baker's Dozen, so you get a 13th box free...I suggest either Bacon, Bacon or Bacon & Cheese, Please, but they are ALL favorites, because Mom makes yummy treats!).

Our friend, Miss Dolce, was in the booth next to us...She is so nice to me, and pets me, and loves on me, and I just love going over to say hello to her. Mommy took this picture of me sitting by her homemade frames with Dog themes...


Then when the doors opened up, I was ready for Meet & Greet time! Dad said that is my job, and I just love meeting new people!


A new friend came to smell my treats, and pick which ones to get (and brought a 9 week old puppy with her too)! 

My new friend must have LOVED my Bear Bones Bakery treats, because I got kisses...


Thank you to all of the NEW friends who came to visit and give me pets. Thank you to all the friends that already knew me who came to visit and give me pets. Thank you to everyone who tells my Mommy how much they love my treats that she makes, because I love seeing my Mommy happy! 

You all make Mommy and me very happy! So thank you very much for being so wonderful.

Love, Grizzly

YES PLEASE! I am patiently waiting, MOM! You said PEANUT BUTTER!


DID YOU SAY PEANUT BUTTER? Brother, is Mom opening Peanut Butter? I better get off the bed before she realizes (cause I'm not supposed to be up here, but Dad let me...). I want PEANUT BUTTER!

Okay, so now that my 2 boys are drooling...being Taste Testers and Quality Control is a job they take very seriously! I am going to let you know why Peanut Butter treats are Bear Bones Bakery Best Sellers!

The original Peanut Butter, has been a recipe I have been making for my personal dogs WAY before I started Bear Bones Bakery (we aren't going to admit how long that is, but since I was 12). 

Grizzly is getting a little older (aren't we all, lol) so PB&T came to be part of our Peanut Butter flavors. It is the regular Peanut Butter treat, with a hint of turmeric. This is good for joint health.

Peanut Butter and Bacon, well, what could be better? Grizzly and Maverick seemed to think nothing would be better...They line up in the kitchen, in the hopes that while mixing, rolling and baking, Mom might just drop something on the floor that they can gobble up.


Well, I wasn't done with the Peanut Butter flavors! My daughter's Landseer Newfoundland, Warrior, has a NEW flavor! Warrior's a Cheesy-Nut is a peanut butter and cheese treat, which came to be in Aug 2021 after Tori asked me for a flavor for him. I was eating cheese crackers filled with peanut butter at the time, so came home and made a test batch. 

Being that Warrior seems to be a slightly picky eater, I was THRILLED he gobbled them up! 

Of course, then Tori mentioned her boyfriend, Chase, eating the same crackers I love, and sharing with Warrior. I am still laughing!

Our Peanut Butter treats are available By the Pound. They are easy to break if you need smaller sized treats for smaller dogs. They are chock full of yummy goodness!

Grizzly gives 4 paws up! Maverick gives 4 paws up! Warrior gives 4 paws up!

Your doggos will be thrilled at getting any one of our Bear Bones Bakery Peanut Butter Flavors.

Thank you for your support~

Megan, Grizzly, Maverick (and Warrior)

My amazing daughter, Tori, went with me on Saturday Aug 14, 2021 to the St Brigid Festival. I was just so thrilled that she wanted to come help me with Bear Bones Bakery treats! And she just absolutely amazed me (yes, I am one proud momma!)


This is my daughter, with a beautiful smile to match her beautiful huge heart. Again, proud Momma!

So she knows I have come up with flavors in honor of some people and fur babies in my life...and asked me in between her telling people about how "Mom makes all these dog treats, with no preservatives or additives, and all human grade ingredients!" and learned how to do all the sales (which was amazing!), if I would make a flavor in honor of her Landseer Newfoundland, Warrior.

Ok, so those of you that have been friends for a long time, like while Bear Bones Bakery was still in the thinking process, know that I was teased about having a "Bakery Brain" quite often. It has yielded some flavors that have been very popular.

When Tori asked for a flavor for Warrior, I was quite honored. Warrior is my grand dog, after all! And while he loves salmon and lamb to eat, it would make those treats too expensive to offer in the regular line. Not to mention, when I tried salmon treats, the smell was one I opted not to bake again...LOL.

We spent quite a while tossing ideas back and forth. I told her I could rename the Peanut Butter & Bacon for him, or one of the other flavors. My daughter wanted a new one...and since I was eating a peanut butter filled cheese cracker at the time, I teased her about a Peanut Butter & Cheese. She, of course, immediately grinned and said yes!

Now, ideas are just the start of new flavors. I have to practice to get the correct ingredients at the right amounts, then see if they bake the way I want them, before I am willing to add them to the Bear Bones Bakery list of approved flavors. So I made absolutely no promises, and told her I would try just because she asked me for a flavor. I would do just about anything to make my daughter smile, and this sure got a big smile.

So I came home, and made the Peanut Butter and Cheese. But then I needed to get a name that she would approve too! After all, it was something to make her even more happy.

She wanted Warrior's name in the name of the treat, which is something I have only done once, in regards to Chewy (who crossed the rainbow bridge). It was very hard to think about putting another name into a treat name...but we finally found one she liked.

Warrior's a Cheesy-Nut came to be. It is a peanut butter and cheese treat.


Here's Warrior, the Grand Pup. His new flavor is one sure to be loved by all of your doggos as much as Grizzly and Maverick enjoyed being taste testers for...and their tails wagged and they drooled. They also like being Quality Control Supervisors!

Thank you, Tori, for being the amazing young lady you are, and for asking me to do something for your pup! I love you both very much!

I am so very excited. After quite literally months of trying to get dog hair out of my new van, and I mean months, I found a product that had me doing the happy dance and giggling with glee in my driveway today (for those of you that know me, that says quite a lot about my level of excitement).

We always put down sheets or blankets on the floor of the van, to contain dog hair (unsuccessfully, since Grizzly and now Maverick walk around and the floor gets exposed). Dog hair is very difficult to get out of carpet on van or car floors!

Have you ever tried? I tried the shop vac, no success. I tried the vac at the car wash, no success. I tried a sticky lint roller, not only no success, but a resounding failure of epic proportions! Then I tried wrapping duct tape around my hand and mistakenly assumed that would work! HA HA HA

I even bought a grooming glove with little points on it...again, no success.

The service department with my van said use nitrile gloves. No success. I was totally at my whit's end thinking my nice black carpet in my van would permanently be coated in dog hair like super glue!

Then I went to a store, where the manager saw Grizzly with me, and mentioned having 2 labs at home that got dog hair everywhere! Which started a conversation about the van floor. And she had a fantastic idea...

Chom Chom. Yes, Chom Chom. I thought she said chomp, chomp, but she told me how to spell it, mentioned it got dog hair out of EVERYWHERE she tried to remove hair. I was a sceptic. After all these attempts, I think anyone would be!

I went onto Amazon, found it, and a video about how to use it. Looked simple, and I decided to try one last time before considering ripping carpet out of the van to remove the hair! I ordered it after watching a video about the product.

OH MY GOSH! Now I am so happy it is amazing! I got it out of the package today, knowing to be more aggressive on rolling to get the hair up, and went outside to try on the carpet!

If you want to do a happy dance yourself, get hair out with ease, empty from the back with ease, and not go crazy like I did...Get on Amazon and order yourself a Chom Chom!

Maverick got a great box from Kong, after buying the Heartguard and Nexguard for him from the vet. They sent a link for him to get the box from Kong for FREE!

Grizzly loves his puzzles we bought at Chewy (in prior blog). When Maverick came to live with us, I decided to up my enrichment game.

Where do you start? How about at home? I have many cupcake tins. So here is what I did...



Put Bear Bones Bakery training treats in the cups, top with tennis balls, and let the pup find his treats.



I also used silicone baking sheets I bought, smeared with a healthy scoop of peanut butter. Both boys just LOVE peanut butter. 



Then I made a snuffle mat...for my daughter's pup, Luna. More to be made for mine. And also for Jager, and his kitty friend Joe (which will probably end up a place for him to curl up rather than hide his toys in....


They all love kongs, especially stuffed then frozen...and yes, the training treats are part of the filling.

Favorites are (starting with the kong upside down so you are filling the small hole 1st): Apples, oats, apple pie training treats, peanut butter. Apples, chicken liver, chicken training treats, peanut butter. Blueberies, chicken liver, Chedd-Ah training treats, peanut butter. 


Enrichment is good for the doggos for mental stimulation. It is also a great way to let them calm down and relax with something they love. 


Please let us know what you think about enrichment games/puzzles. And what your canine's favorite Bear Bones Bakery treats you use!


Happy tail wags to all!

Welcome to the Bear Bones Bakery team little Maverick! We drove down to pick him up Cabin Critters Rescue today, and he is just the sweetest, most adorable baby ever!

He will be Grizzly's trainee for Service dog, taste tester, and quality control. Grizzly is getting more comfortable, he let Maverick sleep on my left foot, while he slept on my right foot!

So once he is ready to meet and greet, you will get to meet the sweetheart!

My mother, Grizzly's Baba, calls him Punkin. And Grizzly loves, and I mean LOVES pumpkins.

We have had a great time when October hits, with my family dogs and baking pumpkins. Okay, so it really didn't start as baking pumpkins...and there is a story behind it that must be shared.

When Tori was younger, her kindergarten had a field trip to get pumpkins, and she just couldn't wait to bring hers home. I promised we would carve it together, and she was so excited! Until, of course, her puppy Hans (our German Shepherd that picked out Grizzly after his brother Fritz went over the rainbow bridge) got his head stuck inside it so all you could see was the tips of his puppy ears.

When I called him, the pumpkin seeds and what Tori called 'slime' came out all over his face. He was busted in the act!

Tori cried her eyes out because he ate her pumpkin. 

That was the start of our family tradition, with our two German Shepherds!

HANS enjoying his Pumpkin

FRITZ with his Pumpkin

Grizzly has always gotten a pumpkin, baking one, every October. Carrying on the family tradition!


His sister, Chewy, even figured it out...she breaks out in hives from canned Pumpkin, but loves the baking ones, and has never had a reaction other than happiness!

Tori wanted to try pumpkins with her pups, Warrior and Luna, and was thrilled when we found them.

When they first gave them the pumpkins, neither dog knew what to do with them... as you can see!

Warrior was plenty happy just cuddling his pumpkin...

As was Luna, although she barked at it a good while first...Then Luna figured it out!

So another generation of Punkin Babies has learned to have fun with our October special Pumpkins!

Next month our Flavor of the Month $1.00 off full size Pumpkin, Punkin' Pie and Cranberry are ways to share the love with Bear Bones Bakery Treats. Contact Megan at megan@bearbonesbakery.biz to get your discount!

And Grizzly gives all types of Pumpkin 4 paws up!

Note: since we got Maverick, we found a new way to help him sleep...


Talking with my daughter over Labor Day, she mentioned little Luna is not sleeping at night.

It reminded me of the first puppy I had... King.

When we brought King home, he cried at night, keeping us awake. It broke my heart. My puppy crying made me cry.

My mom put him in a playpen with blankets, but still he cried.

Then she got a wind up alarm clock, so that you could hear it ticking, put it under his blankets, and end of crying.

Having been sleeping with the other puppies with his mom dog, he heard the heart beats. It was a comfort to him.

Being in a new place, alone, must have been scary to King. Hearing the clock calmed him down and was a super easy fix.

If you have a puppy who won't sleep at night, give this a try!

Thanks mom, for teaching me this trick.

Luna, hope it helps!

Tori. I hope it helps you sleep!
