—Officer Pat McMahon, Minneapolis K-9 Unit
“I am always looking for ways to show my dog love, and treats often say it best. While most treats provide little nutrition, Klecko’s recipes give dog owners the opportunity to show their love and keep their pets healthy. And my dog gobbles up these biscuits—as does his owner, on occasion. They’re that good.”
