Dogs absolutely love these treats, and they're SO much healthier than store-bought treats because they have no preservatives or additives (fake flavoring, etc). You can do so many neat things with these. What a terrific gift for your friends with dogs! Put a bunch in a cellophane bag and tie with a big red ribbon and handmade tag. SO CUTE!!
