Natural Homemade Dog Treat Recipes Your Pup Will Love

Buying dog treats can be an adventure in list reading. You might find yourself picking up every bag in the store, searching the ingredients list for things pet owners are constantly cautioned against or encouraged to include. When it comes to treats, many dog owners go with the idea that the more natural the words on the list sound, the better an option they are for your dog. Instead of scouring the stores trying to find something that’s premade naturally, however, you might have an easier time putting your DIY skills to good use.

Check out these 13 natural dog treat recipes that are made with ingredients so good you might have a hard time not eating them yourself!
