Some things to keep in mind when making your own treats…

There are many benefits in preparing your own treats at own. There won’t be any hidden ingredients that may not be good for your dog. You can also tailor your treats to best suit your dog! If your pup has any allergies or negative reactions to certain ingredients, you can avoid adding it.
If you are trying out a new ingredient, try feeding a small amount to your dog beforehand to see how they react before using it in your recipe.
If you want your treats to last longer, store them in an airtight container and keep them in the freezer. If stored correctly, these homemade treats can last for up to six months!
