Recipes Your Dog Will Love

Remember these are treat recipes not "dog food" so they should not be used in excess.

One of the benefits of making your own treats is that you can control the quality of what goes in the treats.  We suggest using the same quality products as you would if you were making food for yourself.  For example use natural peanut butter rather than products with a lot of added sugar.  Use organic flours and meals if they are available to you.

Here are some potentially harmful ingredients that vets suggest never giving to dogs. These should be omitted from any recipe you try if they are included in the ingredients; 
             Garlic 
             Onions
              Raisins
    Chocolate
 
    Grapes
    Avacados
