Everyone knows dogs are really smart which is why Amy Augustine needed to find a way to make healthy dog treats taste as good as human food. This biology major and vegetarian collaborated with veterinarians to create the Lazy Dog Cookie Company with a yummy (according to dogs that is) tasting assortment of dog treats. The pup-squeak treats come in flavors like Vanilla Sweet Potato where Amy sneakily swapped traditional grains with garbanzo flour which is easier for dogs to digest.
