If you want gourmet dog treats that are special moments for your pitbull, larger and more delicious treats are okay but make sure they contain natural ingredients and are still super nutritious and good for your dog. Dog treats are great for many reasons and any dog loves having a special treat; something different from the everyday meal. If you can’t find quality treats at your local store, you can definitely make some treats at home. Your dog may not know it’s home-made but you know that you are giving your dog the best love and attention it deserves. It’s as easy as making homemade cookies. Just keep in mind that dogs can’t eat all the same things that people can, like chocolate (of course), raisins, and grapes. A homemade gourmet dog treat will usually include natural, vet-approved ingredients like oats, banana, and peanut butter (they love that). There are plenty of tasty things to add in that your dog will love! Make tiny round cookies as treats or go out and buy a bone-shaped cookie cutter for extra special treats.
