These homemade dog treats recipes all sound amazing to me, and I know that your dogs will enjoy them. If you’re transitioning from traditional store bought dog treats, start by making a small batch to be sure that your dog will eat them. Once you know the types of ingredients they enjoy, you’ll be able to make larger batches. Check to see how long they will store and don’t make more than you will use up before they go bad. Experiment with freezing some of the dough when possible.
