Homemade Christmas Dog Treats

Back

We all love to tuck into some indulgent treats over the festive period, but what about our dogs? Many of the things that we love to treat ourselves with are harmful to our dogs so we shouldnt be tempted to share (check out our article on Foods you should never feed your dog) . However, this doesn't mean that our dogs should miss out altogether. Have a look at some of the yummy recipes below that will get your furry friend into the Christmas spirit whilst staying healthy at the same time.
