Biscuits for the allergy prone pooch

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Tyce Light finds his groove in his Montpelier kitchen, whipping up all natural treats. But they're not for him, they're for his best friends. "It's a dog barkery," Light said.

He owns Bongo and Blanket's Bakehouse -- a dog biscuit business.

From Peanut Butter and Bacon to Sweet Potato and Parsley, Light has four varieties that use ingredients you would find in your own kitchen.  With no added sugar or preservatives.  The treats are baked and dehydrated for a maximum shelf life. "I have rolled oats, homemade peanut butter, honey, carrots, sweet potatoes, cheddar cheese," Light said.

Light knows about doggie diets. "I had a dog named fin and he would break out with spots up and down his back," he said. He had to cut wheat from Fin's food, and started the business two years ago. "I wanted to have a business where I could bring a dog to work and give something back," Light said. "We're finding dogs have a system much like us where they can be intolerant to some foods."

But your pooch doesn't have to be a sensitive eater to enjoy Bongo and Blanket's treats. All dogs are welcome to enjoy this snack. "I would really like to see the business expand throughout New England and take over the world one dog biscuit at a time," Light said.

Currently the Made in Vermont doggie treats are sold all over the state and online.
