6 Homemade Dog Treat Recipes to Treat Your Pet to This Holiday

6 Homemade Dog Treat Recipes to Treat Your Pet to This HolidayAre you freaking out about Christmas being just around the corner yet?

With less than 2 weeks to get all the gifts for those on your list, I am sure (if you’re like me) you are scrambling to get everything done!

The holidays are a fun time for our pets too and since we treat them as part of the family, often we’re looking for gifts to put under the tree for them each year too. I am a big fan of homemade gifts, especially when it takes some time to put together — it shows it comes from the heart.

If you’re shopping for a dog on your list, why not show that extra-special love and make something for them from your own kitchen? Making healthy and tasty (for dogs) treats are not as difficult as you may think — nearly as easy as making cookies for the kids.

Click through to see 6 homemade dog treat recipes you can make this holiday:
