A Natural Doggy Treat to Make at Home

Here’s a simple and tasty recipe to make at home, to treat your pup. Keep in mind, treats are exactly that – a treat! Treats are not nutritionally complete, and to ensure their diet remains balanced a rough guide to follow is that treats should make up no more than 10% of what they are fed in a particular day.
