My dogs love dog treats. But so many commercial dog treats are made with unhealthy ingredients and there have been a lot of health scares and recalls involving them. There are many homemade dog treats that are really easy and economical so why chance it? Just make them at home.
One of my dogs, Barclay the beagle, is sensitive to wheat and has a breath issue....hum, maybe its a bit more than an issue, lol. Anyway, this recipe sounds like just the right treat for him.
