Getting Sassy for Goodies!

‘Tis the season for … Treats! Cakes! Chips!  It’s a dog’s dream come true! One of the donated items to our recent #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness online benefit auction was a treat bowl filled with Sassy's Goodies. Now we’ve heard some great reviews about these doggie goodies that we decided to give them a FiveSibes taste test ourselves! Harley stepped up and volunteered to be the first to try out these goodies!


Sassy’s Goodies, named after the business owner’s very own Siberian Husky “Sassy,” is an online store, but are also carried in several retail stores located in Missouri. (To find out where, click HERE). Sassy’s Goodies Owner, Baker, Siberian Husky Mom, and a United States Military wife, Nanette says the company is still in its infancy stages and something to help with income after her husband returned from Afghanistan and Iraq. Nanette’s previous Husky, Nala, was diabetic and three years ago while her husband was in Iraq, Nala passed away from diabetic complications. But with a diabetic dog, Nanette says she has always made her own dog treats. Coincidentally, she found Sassy online the very day her Nala journeyed north of the Rainbow Bridge. She decided to do the business and to “also educate people on what they are feeding their dogs and how to do it better." All of Sassy’s Goodies are “gluten free, and contain no wheat, corn, salt, sugar, or soy...and I now have the sweet potato chips, so I have a grain-free one. I make all the ingredients that I can so I know they are good for them.”

So after hearing the ingredients, I knew this was a safe treat for my Huskies, especially Gibson, who is on medication for Canine Epilepsy, including Potassium Bromide (a salt) and it’s important that his food and treats contain no salt  (as it could interfere with the absorption of his meds), and it’s also important to not feed rosemary, as it can be a trigger for seizures for some dogs. I don’t believe it is for Gibson, but I rather err on the side of caution and just not give it to him. Sassy’s Goodies, says Nanette, can be stored for about a year due to the method of baking, but we sincerely doubt they will stick around that long! 

Harley says, "Nommmmmm..."
This certainly is a nice one-stop-shop for your canine! Not only can your furkid enjoy some tasty home-baked treats and pupcakes, but she also makes up really cute gifts sets, creates personalized treat jars, and has “fancy collars to dress your pup to show everyone how special they are.  Whether it is every day colors, holidays, or your favorite sports team, your dog will look their best!” says Nanette.

On the Sassy’s Goodies website, you can also sign your pup up for the Birthday Club, where your dog receives a special complimentary Birthday treat from Nanette along with the customer’s next order. You can check out the Birthday Club HERE. 

The Pupsters love their job!
And which one is the FiveSibes favorite goodie? Paws down it was the Pumpkin treat with carob icing, followed a close second by the Peanut Butter, and all the rest!

So, pop on over to Sassy’s (they have a Facebook page, too!) and get your dog some goodies made with love by a fellow Husky Mom in the USA! And be sure to let Nanette know the FiveSibes sent you, and also say "thank you" to her husband for his service to our country!


"Mom...these goodies are yummy!"

Woo! FiveSibes give Sassy’s Goodies a Four-out-of-Four 
Paw Star rating!
