CLEVELAND — When it comes to our furry friends, nothing is too much work, including making snacks from scratch.

On Wednesday's Lunch Break with Jay Crawford, Three Dog Bakery owner Erin Steidel stopped by studio to share one recipe for her bakery’s delicious homemade dog treats.

To help make sure the snacks were up to snuff, Jay and producers Tricia and Monique brought in their own VIPs (very important pups) to taste test.

The result? A resounding four paws up for the yummy nibbles.

Watch the segment in the player here, and read below for the full recipe to make Carob Bites at home:

Three Dog Bakery is located at 2929 Detroit Avenue in Ohio City. For people who would like custom cakes, Erin said the bakery needs only 48 hours notice for orders.

Three Dog Bakery items are also available in other retailers, including Target.
