Welcome to this, the fourth in our healthy homemade dog treat series where we show you how to make your very own tasty canine snacks. The recipes for dog treats on this page are fun to make and have your dog’s health in mind. It’s important that any additional food you provide for your dog is factored against what they would normally eat, so if you do offer your dog some of these tasty morsels remember to subtract an equivalent volume from their normal portion size of regular food.
