DIY dog treats

So is it just me or does anyone else wonder what’s all  in a dog treat? The fact that it is packaged up and can last months is a little unsettling to me so I decided to make my own. In all honesty, I really thought that it may be a little complicated but it was surprisingly easy!

I found my recipes on the ever-so-convenient, Pinterest, typing in “Easy Dog Treat Recipes” in the search bar, and I found two recipes that only consisted of FOUR ingredients!! The first recipe is below.

“Cheesy Sweet Potato”
