Would you buy Puppy Cake Cake mix for your dog???

last night the inventor of the product came on the ABC Shark Tank show hoping to get an investment from any of the sharks for the company but did not get any.

I thought the idea was a complete miss by the sharks.

Link to website to buy item....

Puppy Cake is Cake Mix for Dogs!

I would have to see an ingredient list first.

Same here. I have several dog-friendly cookbooks here so buying a mix wouldn't be my first choice if I can make a healthier version.

There is a poll at the beginning of the thread...

if a dog year is equal to 7 human years, shouldn't they get 7 birthday parties, therefore 7 cakes?

my neighbor's dog has agreed not to poop on my lawn in exchange for this statement.

it was part of a deal including not faking throwing a ball.

Puppy Cake Products

For each cake you can buy they have a list of ingredients under technical specs.

I had to say no. We bake treats for our pugs and the only thing in the recipe that is a processed product is Gerber baby food.

Good grief. Beagle gets lamb and rice dry dog food, along with CET HEX strips for teeth cleaning. That's it. Other than 321 cake, I don't even bake for us humans!

I probably really would not buy it, but I voted that I would, but there would be conditions. The first condition would be that the ingredients are healthy. The second is that I could get it for a good price.

If there had been another category, "I would at least give it a try," I would have voted for that one.

Thank you, Kleenex. Yes, I would buy it for Patron...my favorite puppy. I'm thinking one in each flavor to boost sales and give the pups in my life a treat.

I try to never say never or always, but this one .... I can't see it. I've adored my dogs to distraction, but unless they were sick, I wouldn't cook for them, and I hate to bake anyway. In my experience, my beloved pets were healthier having a very regular diet. I don't bake my husband a cake!

I used to make our DD homemade treats frequently. Always from recipes intended for dogs. Except for his birthday cake. Then he got a boxed mix spice cake. No frosting, just the cake. The kind, I don't recall the name, that you added liquid to the dry ingredients and baked right in the box the dry ingredients came in. He had one every year on his birthday. And, also on the last day of his life.

My roommate used to feed her dog a vanilla cupcake for its birthday every year. I think that it was a good excuse to buy a 6 pack of cupcakes, I didn't argue! Maybe not the healthiest thing for a dog, but once a year couldn't hurt. The dog was a sucker for attention, and would sit there with the cupcake in front of her while happy birthday was sung to her, she wouldn't go after the cupcake until she got the nod from mom. Heck you could put a steak dinner on the coffee table and she would just stare at it, hoping to move it with her mind.

I loved that dog, and I'm not really a dog person.
