Soft Dog Treats
Soft dog treats should be reserved as a special occasion snack, due to dogs needing harder crunch power, for
keeping their teeth clean.
If you own older dogs that already have dental problems, then you may be interested in a soft, homemade dog cookie recipe.
These 2 recipes are eagerly gobbled up by my Golden Retrievers!
