Your dog is your best friend, so it’s no wonder that you want to spoil your pup now and then. Unfortunately, many of the commercial dog treats out there are full of stuff that’s not-so-good for dogs. That’s why making your own is such a great idea. These diy dog treats are made with simple ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already, and you can feel good about feeding them to your pooch.
