Our border collie Emily loves to have special dog treats! She will do tricks just to get her favourite treats. With the recent scares on store bought dog treats, I’m a little nervous about feeding them to her! Emily is like another member of our family, so I want to make sure I know what’s in her dog treats. I’ve put together three variations on Emily’s favourite homemade dog biscuits to share with you. These treats are super easy to make, and you can store them for several weeks in an airtight container. Then they’re available whenever you want to give your dog a biscuit.
