How to Make Homemade Dog Treats
Every pet owner wants only the best for their pooch including feeding them choice foods to ensure they get all the necessary nutrients and grow healthily. But there’s one thing that pets love above all – treats. These little delights are quick pick-me ups for your four-legged friends, they probably will put on their best behavior so they can be rewarded with these delicious treats.
But, why not make your own special concoction to indulge your precious companions? Instead of relying on commercially-made treats, you can prepare your own cocktail of love right at home using premium ingredients that you know your pets will love. The beauty of making your own treats is that you know exactly what go into them. Treats are not only used for dog training or rewarding exemplary behavior, they also help dogs clean their teeth and get fresh breath.
In preparing homemade treats, there are several things you should consider. One is to ensure that your ingredients are dog-friendly. Humans and Fido have definitely different tastes and that goes as well for treats. Chocolate, for example, is loved by a lot of people and although your pet will surely gobble it up, it is actually very bad for your pooch. It makes them sick. There many things that are not good for dogs such as onions, garlic, grapes, raisins, milk and dairy products. Another point is to make sure there are no ingredients in your treats that are difficult to digest. If you look at the components of treats and biscuits sold in supermarkets, you will see that there are so many listed ingredients you have never heard of. Here are a couple of simple yet delectable recipes that you can easily do at home that will surely become instant hits with your beloved pets.
