Keeping Cool Hunting mascots Otis and Logan well rewarded in recent weeks has been NYC's very own Bocce's Bakery. Driven by wellness and sustainability, the small batch dog treatery uses only "human-grade" ingredients—antibiotic-free beef, hormone-free white meat chicken, wheat free flour—for their all-natural dog biscuits. What started as a humble project for a beloved pet has evolved into a professional business, although the hands on, oven baked cooking process has yet to change.
Otis and Logan devour the treats in seconds, delightfully licking the hard wood floors for every last savory taste. Hit flavors included chicken cordon bleu, beef bourguinon, fish and chips and PB'n'J, which is made with a short and simple list of just three organic ingredients—oat flour, blueberries, peanut butter. These few items, along with all others used by Bocce's Bakery are locally sourced from upstate NY and the tri-state area whenever seasonably possible.
Bocce's Bakery biscuits are offered in seven distinct flavors, each with heaps of healthy ingredients your four-legged friends will love. Available through Bocce's Bakery online and a long list of loyal stockists for $9.50 a bag.
