Homemade Dog Treats

Want to spoil your pet this silly season with some special treats? Nadia Crighton gets busy baking in the kitchen to whip up some canine delights.

This is a great time of year to bake your pooch some homemade delights. I always like to have a big jar on hand so when guests visit they know that if they wish to treat my dogs they do so through the doggy-safe-treat jar and not their own plate. It’s our way of safe-guarding against accidental poisoning. Just make sure your dog isn’t getting too, many treats. Piling on the pounds is not good for us, or our dogs around this time of year.
