Homemade pet treats are an excellent way to reward your dog, and to engage your children in the kitchen. During this time of social distancing, we are acutely aware of managing our time and money efficiently… and maintaining the health of our family and pets.
Here are some of the benefits of making pet treats at home:
- You have complete control over the ingredients in your dog’s food. Make sure your pet is getting the best nutrition possible. Also, only you know what your pet likes and dislikes. You can tailor the recipe to suit any dietary restrictions or preferences your dog may have.
- It’s 100% healthy and homemade! No preservatives or chemicals that can be harmful over time.
- Making pet treats is fun, and it provides a strong sense of independence and resourcefulness. Your kids will love this activity.
