Hey, do you guys like dogs? Because my family is kind of dog-obsessed (we would have rescued like 10 dogs by now if we didn’t have some restraint), and in fact, we consider our two dogs members of our family, which any self-respecting dog owner should. And as members of the family, shouldn’t they get special homemade treats once in a while, too? We bake cookies for our kids, so why shouldn’t we do the same for our dogs? Not ALL the time of course, but once in a while I think it’s a fun activity to whip up a batch of homemade dog treats for the pooches. There are all sorts of different recipes on the Internet, depending on how simple or complicated a recipe you’re looking for. But the cool thing is that these treats are all-natural and unlike some name brand dog treats you can buy at the store, you know everything that goes into them (and you can even pronounce the ingredients!). Another bonus is that my 2-year-old daughter, who just started developing an interest in helping me bake, LOVES making cookies just for the dogs. So it’s a great activity to engage your kids, too. Heck, there's even a dog treat cookbook you can buy! And, if you’re lazy and don’t want to make them quite from scratch, there are a selection of mixes you can buy, like this one. Valentine’s Day is coming up, so why not use it as an excuse to make some heart-shaped goodies for your pooch?
I can’t resist this face.
