As a dog owner, I know I only want to give my dog the best treats and know exactly what I’m feeding him—the downside to getting well-made, healthy snacks, and how expensive they can be in the store. So I have compiled five of my favorite treat recipes that I make for my dog and thought I would share with you! All are relatively simple and don’t require many ingredients, but the best part is how much your dog will love them! They are the perfect little reward for training or even just being a good dog!
Feel free to try out these recipes, share them on Instagram, and tag us @yourdogonit
