Homemade Dog Treats

Homemade Dog Treats are easy to make and better for your pet than most commercial treats.

Add Healthy Ingredients

You can load up on healthy ingredients like shredded carrots or flaxseeds when you're making dog treats at home.

Why? Veggies are just as important for Fido as for you.

And flaxseeds pack a nutritious punch of omega 3's which protect against arthritis, heart disease and cancer and give your dog a beautiful and shiny coat.
