What are homemade dog biscuits?

As their name says, dog biscuits are just that, biscuits that we can give our pet as a snack or reward from time to time. However, it is recommended that you do not give them our consumption because they may have components that are not so friendly to your body. This is why the Waggy's team It advises you to buy specific products for your consumption or, in that case, to make them yourself. Why not? It can be a different and even fun experience.

What types of cookies can I give my dog? suitable ingredients

There really are many cookie options that we can make for them, the important thing is not to make them with products that our four-legged friend cannot tolerate, such as chocolate, sugar, raisins, grapes, onion, garlic, among others. From then on, we can rest easy when it comes to cooking your cookies.
Do you remember that everything in excess is bad? Well, keep this motto in mind when cooking. Using flour or variants of it will not hurt them if you use the appropriate measure. Same for all other ingredients.
