Soft Dog Treats

web analytics
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!

Soft Spicy Dog Treats

3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 TBSP brown sugar
1 egg
