Taste Testing Team


Taste Tester

Grizzly’s little sister, who had to also be represented with treats: Chewy is Bananas (mostly because we can’t call her nuts, lol). This is available by special order.


Taste Tester

The little Landseer Newfoundland pup my daughter got, and wound his way directly into my heart. Warrior loves all treats from Bear Bones Bakery, but especially likes the new Fish Fry and Chicken Liver flavors.


Taste Tester, Special Dietary Needs

Kona is a Tamaskan, a rare breed, that has been a taste tester for Bear Bones Bakery from the start. With his special diet, (he's wheat allergic) he became my special needs taste tester. Not a fruit eater, this boy is clearly a meat and potatoes guy!

Kira and Kami

Taste Testers

Kira and Kami are Tamaskans from Stoney Creek Tamaskan here in Ohio, and while their sister (Lyra, not pictured) likes fruits, these two ladies still prefer meat!

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!

Grizzly, Maverick and Chewy

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 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!

Here at Bear Bones Bakery, we love hearing back from friends who enjoy or amazing treats.

This month, August, is a big one for us. Grizzly had his 6th birthday on the 1st of August. Of course, you know he celebrated with some of his favorite treats. Puppy Mint was on that list. For those of you who don't know the story, he ate an entire 10 lb bag of Brach's peppermints, and that was the start of Puppy Mint.

August 7th is also Megan's birthday. Yes, I took the day off, and so enjoyed all the well wishes from friends and family both. This past year has brought many changes, and the best ones have been how well received our treats have been! It brings me happiness to get such amazing feedback and to know that what I have always enjoyed doing for my personal canines is so well loved by all canines.

So with a happy heart, and much appreciation, thank you for your support. 

Happy Birthday, my Grizzly, who I love. Thank you for taking care of your mom!

I am so happy to have added a Flavor of the Month to our Bear Bones Bakery Treats!

This is so that your beloved canine can love them as much as Grizzly! See him taste testing, and was wiggling in glee so much that I couldn't get a picture without his happiness!The Flavor of the Month was chosen with the flavors that are in the lineup, as well as new flavors that are seasonal. All have special sentiments behind them...

January, Peanut Butter

My daughter's birthday, and she used to love to eat peanut butter just about anything! This month's choice is in her honor.

February, Chedd-Ah

We brought this out as a new flavor just in time for My Furry Valentine in Feb 2020. It was such a great hit, it became the Feb Flavor.

March, Pina Colada

This is a well loved flavor, it just had to be included.

April, Chicken Liver

One of our new flavors added to the website, and a Grizzly favorite. Just in time for tax time!

May, Any Foundation Flavor

Just because you may find a new one to love!

June, Fish Fry

Another new flavor, that reminds me of spending time in Wisconsin in the summers and going to Fish Fries there!

July, Apple Pie

A seasonal offering, because there is nothing more American than Apple Pie! 

This is a seasonal flavor, but can also be special ordered.

August, Puppy Mint

Grizzly's (and Megan's) birthday is in August, he loves mint as much as I do, so his birthday month flavor just had to be Puppy Mint.

September, Bacon, Bacon

Ah, who doesn't love bacon? No canine I know! 

October, Meatball

Grandma W, who taught me how to bake, inspired this flavor. Her birthday month made this the perfect choice.

November, Pumpkin Pie, Punkin' Pie or Cranberry

Your canine will give thanks to get any of these flavors for Thanksgiving. Cranberry is seasonal, or can be special ordered.

December, Ginger Snaps, Gluten Free

Nothing says Christmas to me better than my Aunt's Ginger Snaps. This recipe has been converted into a seasonal offering for your canine to enjoy. Knowing some of my favorite extended canine family have issues with Gluten, I send them the Gluten Free flavors. So both of these are December flavors.

I was so happy to get a video from Ginny and Raleigh's Mom and Dad...

They won a raffle at My Furry Valentine, and I opted to ship it to them rather than try to meet up with them with all the Covid craziness. And because it took me a while, I decided to send them a box of the brand new Chicken Liver. They are the first to get this flavor, and look at the amazing happy pups!

Thank you so much! You just made my day!

Today is a sad day. Another of our Bear Bones Bakery canines crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

Diesel, the picky taste tester who loved the Chicken Treats, has suffered many seizures. My daughter, who has Luna and Warrior, got to know him very well, as he is her boyfriend's dog.

I was very lucky to be able to meet the big boy, a Great Pyrenees, because of my daughter. He was a loving, adorable baby.

For Chase and his family, this great loss is something I understand. I have had to put my dogs to sleep in the past, it never stops hurting. The great comfort is, you love Diesel enough to make his hurting stop. It is the greatest, last gift of love you can give such a devoted friend.

Being at home so much with the COVID situation, means my brain is thinking about new flavors to try baking...

When we had the cottage on Catfish Lake in Eagle River, Wisconsin, one of the things we always liked to do was go to Friday fish fries. With that in mind, okay and the fact that the smell of salmon cooking was not a smell that agreed with me, I wanted another fish flavor. 

Fish Fry was born. It has potato, applesauce and tuna so that it was a close representation of those Friday nights in Wisconsin. Grizzly liked them so much, I am working on ideas for the Training Treats, as well as the full size. 

Those of you that know me, know I LOVE broccoli cheddar soup. So today I am trying Broccoli Cheddar Treats in the full size, and the house smells AMAZING!

I am also making a Southern Broccoli, because my parents moved to North Carolina, and I learned lots of veggies tend to be made with the Southern Broccoli I am trying in full size, has broccoli and bacon flavors.

Let me know what you think.

Should I put test flavors online for sale?

Megan and Grizzly
