Melissa Norton, Creator & Owner of Waggin’ Tails “Natural Homemade Dog Biscuits” received divine guidance in 2009 to create natural dog biscuits that were free of preservatives, yet healthy and tasty. The end results, Waggin’ Tail Natural Dog Biscuits was born. The treats are made with all-purpose flour, and new recipes are in the test kitchen for gluten-free cookies. Some of the more popular cookies are made with peanut butter, molasses, mile, rolled oats, bananas, carob, honey, and peaches. No added sugar is included in the ingredients. Two sweeteners used that have each have great health benefits are molasses and honey, which are very beneficial for dogs. Each month, 10% of the profits go to a different charity. Waggin’ Tails will have inventory on site at Amity Trade Days, CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs in the Gift Shop, and Countryside Animal Hospital in Hot Springs.
