Elphie Biscuits

Did you know that today November 1st is National Cook for your Pet Day?! I love making homemade treats for my pets. My pets are my children and I want to know that they live a healthy life. So just like our meals I try to know exactly what ingredients go into everything so that we don’t have unnecessary chemicals or preservatives.

Back when Elphie was little I started making homemade dog treats, her and our first chocolate lab Skylos both loved them as did the dogs of our friends and family. I don’t remember where I first found the base recipe but over the years it has evolved into this treat. I also make a few other varieties such as a pumpkin dog treat and have worked on a few grain free versions. 

As well as homemade treats for the dogs I have a recipe for homemade cat treats, Bu Bites. Also we regularly treat the pets to pumpkin and yogurt as healthy treats, read about the benefits here

These make great holiday gifts or hostess gifts for friends that have dogs too! 

how good is that
