Since I am always cooking and baking new recipes for people, a friend of mine asked me to come up with some healthy treats for mans best friend. Here are four healthy, yummy treats your doggie will love. I taste tested them on our neighbors dog Dukie. It was a success.
If you happen to have a cookie cutter in the shape of a dog or dog bone, please roll these out and make them all fancy. I just didn’t happen to have these cookie cutters. Duke didn’t seem to mind as he was munching away on his treat.
Duke loves these cookies as his owner calls them She says Duke thinks he is getting a human cookies since they look like a regular cookies. Win, Win all the way around.
