These healthy, homemade dog treat recipes are super easy to prepare. You will love that you know all of the healthy, whole food ingredients that go into them—dog treats you buy at the pet store are often filled with unhealthy additives and preservatives—and your dog will just love how they taste! Making homemade dog treats are one of the best ways to bond with your dog, and you avoid the hassle, time, and potential dangers associated with making your dog’s food. Just remember that treats shouldn’t account for more than 10 percent of your dog’s diet. Ready, set, bake!
