National Dog Biscuit Day!

The first dog biscuits were developed in the mid-19th century by American manufacturer James Spratt. He came up with the idea after he visited Liverpool in England, where he observed stray dogs hungrily tucking into ship’s biscuits.

The first Spratts biscuits were produced in London, with a secret recipe including both meat and vegetables.

Today, dog biscuits are often used for training. There are even special types of biscuit which clean dogs’ teeth – so giving your best friend a treat can help to keep him healthy!
