Cecilia Gilman and Emily Bond

Hound's Tooth by Cecilia and Emily is an offering of all natural homemade dog treats and snacks.  All are healthy, organic and wheat free.  Apple , carrot, pumpkin, flaxseed, and peanut butter are just a few of the ingredients used.  Knowing some dogs have sensitive stomachs there will also be several dairy free and meat free products available.  All the treats have been pre-approved by their own dogs Rosco and Emmitt and several of their four legged friends.  There will be packaged treats as well as an assortment of a la carte goodies to give as gifts to satisfy your dog's sweet tooth.  Who let the dogs out? (couldn't resist)
10% of Hound's Tooth sales will be donated to the Humane Sociaty of Kansas City.
