Healthy Holiday Treats That Taste Better Than Cookies

. 2 min read

If Thanksgiving is all about the dinner, the holidays are all about the dessert, as far as we're concerned—and we're pretty sure our pups feel the same way. Unlike human treats, though, the canine kind aren't stuffed with carbs and candy. A few of our favorite festive recipes that have healthy benefits too (including a dog-friendly egg nog!)
