Using safe dog treat ingredients in your homemade dog treats? The articles below, on dog biscuit ingredients, will help you choose human grade foods that are safe and will not harm your dog.

A Good Reason to Bake
Dog Treats for Your Dog

Many pet owners started baking treats and making food for their dogs during the dog food recalls, in 2007.

Healthy dog treats use only safe ingredients.

 Healthy dog treats use safe ingredients.

Well intentioned people started baking for their pets, and they assumed that if an ingredient was healthy for people, it would be healthy for dogs.

But not all human foods are good for dogs… Some very healthy human foods like walnuts, garlic and raisins--are harmful to dogs.

However, the good news is that there are many healthy human foods that can be used in dog treats, and they will be good for your dog.
