Healthy Homemade Dog Treat Recipes

Updated: Dec 18, 2019

Yappy Valentine's Day!

If you treat your pups like royalty like I do, you might have pup friendly Valentine's treats on your mind right now.

I am a huge fan of treating my dogs. Mostly because they're adorable, perfect, and their eyes demand it.

But I am not a fan of giving them treats with ingredients that I cannot pronounce. If I wouldn't feel comfortable eating it myself, I won't give it to my dogs. Penny is now what you might call a "treat snob" and prefers only the best and will turn her nose up at many popular brands of treats. Can you relate? If ingredients are important to you like they are for me, why not try your hand at baking some homemade dog biscuits for your babies?

Here are some easy ones you can try today:
