When Amy Iaciofano started her pet treat business, Three Paws Up, the first taste test was done by her mother’s 3 dogs, and the consensus was….three paws up! Thus her business name was born. Her own black lab, Bella, had helped her through some dark times after a huge loss in her family, and she wanted to return the favor by providing Bella with treats made from quality ingredients, and most importantly, with love.
When Amy offered us a chance to try her Peanut Butter Banana treats, our crew here was happy to give their opinion, which of course was also….three paws up! How could we go wrong with the only ingredients being products that we could find in our own kitchen cabinet? As much as I’d like to bake for my dogs more often, I just don’t always have the time, so it’s nice to know I can purchase some treats that are hand made in the USA with organic ingredients.
The packaging is eco-friendly, as well as being easy to open and re-seal as well. The treats have just the right amount of crunch…they are not too hard and can also be snapped in half for smaller portions.
Three Paws Up’s mission is to provide quality treats made with love, to help dogs in need, and to promote adoption. Amy is currently running a promotion on her Facebook page to do just that. For every new like she receives for her page, she will donate .50 to an animal shelter (up to $100.00)! You can also nominate your favorite shelter to receive the donation. When the promo is up, one shelter named will be chosen randomly. So if you have a minute go on over and like her page, and leave a comment tagging your favorite shelter.
Oh, and don’t forget to go to her website and order some treats! In addition to the Peanut Butter Banana, there are pumpkin, appleberry, tilapio honey (made with locally sourced fresh tilapia!) and other flavors to choose from.
Below is a photo of Bella, Amy’s 4 year old black Lab and a newer addition to the family, Linus, a Boston terrier mix. Amy also has a brand new son, Liam Kenneth, who was just born in August! Family is very important to Amy, and that’s the kind of business person we like to support.
*Disclaimer: We received one bag of complimentary treats but were in no other way compensated for this review. All opinions here are my own, and I only share honest reviews of products that I feel will be of interest to our readers.*
We are happy to be joining the Tasty Tuesday blog hop hosted by Sugar the Golden Retriever and Kol’s Notes. Please visit our hosts along with the other blogs through the links below for more tasty treats!

Those sound yummy and its such a cute name. I like the simple ingredients. Thanks for the info! ☺
Hope you get a chance to try them! It is such a cute name, isn’t it?
Two of my favs…bananas and peanut butter! Sounds real tasty. We like to try to bake or make something once a month or so. It is fun for the whole family. Three paws up sounds like a wonderful company.
I usually try to bake more in the winter, but we have made some frozen treats this summer. I think it’s nice to support local, grass roots companies when we can’t do our own though!
