Homemade Dog Treats with 5 Ingredients or Less
With thousands of dog treat products available, you may wonder why anyone would consider making their own? For me it’s because I love making my puppers something extra special from time to time. They love joining me in the kitchen as I whip up their homemade dog treats and then not so patiently waiting for them to cool. I also enjoy knowing that when I make their dog treats, that I’m in control of the ingredients.
Every month I try out a new dog treat recipe for my pups. So if you aren’t one of our Very Important Pups yet, sign-up for my monthly newsletter where I share a treat of the month. The majority of the homemade dog treat recipes that I share are easy to make and require 5 ingredients or less.
