Man’s best friend knows when he’s about to get the good stuff. Maybe you have a special cupboard the treats are left in, or perhaps they get rewarded when they successfully sit, lift a paw and lay down in a flawless trick performance. Dogs go nuts for their treats (“cookies,” in my household), but we’re always hesitant to give them too many, right? It’s like feeding Oreos to a toddler. But still, who can resist those puppy-dog eyes?! Next time you have a rainy day stretching out before you or feel like getting crafty in the kitchen, consider making dog treats from scratch -- you can pick out specific ingredients and play right into your pup’s dietary needs. Just, you know, don’t accidentally taste the batter yourself as you go.
