Blue Dog Bakery: Low Fat Treats

press release:

Blue Dog Bakery Announces a New jumbo size package of NATURAL, LOW-FAT PREMIUM DOG BISCUITS

Delicious, Low Fat Alternatives to Help Dogs Control Their Weight
Seattle, WA (March 30, 2005) – Blue Dog Bakery is giving their customers what they’ve been howling for – new six-pound Jumbo Size packages of their Premium, All Natural, Low Fat Peanut Butter & Molasses Dog Biscuits and their new assorted More Flavors dog biscuits.  The new size of these 2 favorite varieties offers economy pricing and the convenience of shopping less often, and they’re eco-friendly because they reduce packaging.  To maintain freshness, each 6-pound box contains 6 individually sealed 1-pound pouches.  Ideal for households with multiple dogs, the suggested price for the new 6-pound box is $11.99. 
Even though their packages of natural low-fat dog biscuits are growing in size, Blue Dog Bakery’s goal is to help their four-legged customers get smaller.  “Pet obesity is an epidemic in America,” says Margot Kenly, President of Blue Dog Bakery.   “Since treats are a very important behavior tool for handling pets, the answer isn’t to abolish them to address weight management, it is to make them less fattening and a healthy part of a well-balanced diet,” says Kenly.  The National Research Council, an arm of the National Academies, estimated in a study last fall that as many as 25 percent of pets in the Western world are obese.
