The Benefits of Making Doggie Treats for Halloween
We love giving our pups treats like bully sticks, collagen sticks, and pig ears. But if you want to help your dogs enjoy Halloween as much as you do, here's why you should spend extra time turning our treats into something even more special.
You Know They're Healthy – No Tricks, Just Treats!
When you make dog treats, you know what's in them. As a result, you can ensure they are healthy and nutritious while still being tasty enough to please your pup. It also means that you can tailor the recipe to fit your dog's specific needs.
It's An Opportunity to Bond
You and your furry pal can bond while making these treats. While you mix the ingredients, have your pup lick the batter off your countertop and spoons.
This means less mess, waste, and clean-up for you and a deliciously good time for your dog!
It's A Great Way To Teach Your Dog a New Trick
Providing your dog with new home-made treats is a great way to teach them new tricks. You can make it into a fun game while they sit patiently waiting for their treat.
Are These Recipes Safe?
Yes! Of course they are. We love your dogs as much as you do, so we only provide recipes that are healthy and good for them.
We make our dog chews with natural ingredients, and we always make sure that they're safe for your four-legged family members.
