Tails will be wagging on the South End following a class for pet-owning bakers seeking to pamper their furry friends.
At an upcoming Slow Food Whidbey Island class, board member Arjai Allred will teach attendees how to make three varieties of pet treats for beloved four-legged family members.
Allred’s original pet treat recipes include a vegan treat for dogs, a peanut butter cookie treat and a tiny training treat suitable for both dogs and cats. All varieties feature healthy and wholesome ingredients that are better for pets than store bought treats.
Allred, a pet parent to two dogs, two cats and a number of chickens, will demonstrate how to make the different types of treats from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Greenbank Progressive Club. Class attendees are asked to leave their pets at home, though pet photos are encouraged; there will be a board where people can pin photos of their pets.
The cost is $15 for Slow Food members and $20 for non-members. One attendee will win a door prize basket. Kids can attend for $10, and children age 6 and under may attend for free. There will be a table at the class where kids can paint bottles to hold the pet treats.
Spots are limited and filling up quickly. Email Slow Food communications coordinator Kathy Floyd at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
