How to Package and Sell Your Dog Treats

There are a few key things to remember when packaging and selling your dog treats. First, make sure the packaging is sturdy and can protect the treats from damage. You'll also want to make sure the packaging is attractive and catches the customer's eye.

Additionally, you'll need to include information about the ingredients and nutritional value of the treats on the packaging. This information is not only what makes your treats legal to sell but can help attract customers looking for healthy dog treats.

Conclusion: Making your own dog treats is a great way to make some extra money. Not only are you providing a valuable service to other dog owners, but you can also charge a fair price for your treats. Be sure to market your treats well and get yourself some good packaging!
