We all know the feeling when our pets look at us with those “hungry” eyes as you are indulging in a treat. The sad part is although we would love to share said treat with our pet, the ingredients aren’t always safe. Given that many of us are stuck at home spending an unusual amount of time with our pets, we found a sweet homemade dog treat recipe that is safe for you and your dog!
