I have a gorgeous new puppy that just loves her treats. I love giving them to her too – but I wanted to make sure I was giving her treats and not fattening her up. I did my research and found that making my own dog treats can be a fun reward for me and my dog. It helps me to fill my time with something I’m passionate about – baking. Making from home can also help Bailey by ensuring that she’s getting a nutritious and wholesome snack. Another important factor to consider was that it was a great deal less expensive.

First things first, the most important thing I learned was that when I can, I should feed my dog Natural & Organic products. At first I thought that would be way to expensive. Using coupons and knowing my brands helped me out a lot. Check out these ones out!

In addition, store bought treats are often made from fillers and byproducts as opposed to natural and high quality ingredients. By creating our own treats at home, we will be able to provide our dog with a healthy snack that is not only nutritious but is also free of unhealthy additives.
