I spend a lot of time baking over the holidays for family & friends. And do you know who stares at me the whole time while I’m cooking? My dog.
Since most of the goodies I bake aren’t good for dogs I decided to compromise. Each year I make a batch of special holiday dog treats just for her. It’s an easy way to make sure she’s included in all the festivities.
Give your dog something special (and yummy) this holiday season by making one of these great holiday dog treat recipes.
