Why Make Your Own Homemade Dog Treats?

After making dog treats for almost 10 years, I’ve got this down to a science.

Not everyone has the time to make their own dog treats. But if you do, there are plenty of advantages including:

  • You can control the ingredients in your dog treat recipes — no additives or preservatives whenever possible!
  • It’s easier to control the portion sizes so you pup isn’t overeating.
  • You’ll always have a fresh supply of treats on hand.
  • Your family and neighbors’ pets will love you as much as your dog does.
  • There’s a good chance your dog’s house will be the most popular one in the hood.
  • With a little practice, you can sell your dog treats and make some extra moolah.
