I love trying out new homemade dog treat recipes, any my Pharaoh Hound is always a willing taste-tester!
My girl has food sensitivities, especially when it comes to things like beef.
So, it’s easier to control the ingredients when I make treats for her.
Besides, it saves me a TON of money; something we’re all short on these days.
