My dogs love me. I often wonder if its the homemade dog treats or me they love.
We have 3 of the most spoiled dogs on the planet. My teenager has 2 chihuahua mixed pooches that are about 10 years old and then my 9 year old has a 4 year Australian shepherd. Our house certainly wouldn’t be the same without them.
Like most dogs, our dogs love treats. But most of the dog treats on the market of full of nasty ingredients. Those that aren’t are super expensive. So what is one to do for their fur buddy? Make a simple homemade dog treat you can feel good about sharing with them!
