Rover enjoys homemade treats, too

Look straight into your puppy’s eyes and give back some of the joy they bring to your life everyday by trying your hand at making some of these cookies.

Now, I’m sure it’s not very often you make your dog something special and I’m equally sure we can all agree you could just leave your favourite bag of chips open for them to munch on  instead, but my dog loves these cookies and yours will too.

You will want to keep these in an airtight container, which will help them last for up to a week. If you don’t think you will go through them in a week, you can freeze them and take them out one at a time. Have fun with this cooking adventure and watch your dog’s life light up when you give them one of these treats.
