      our dogs are very special to us and we want to know what they are eating. we’ve long made their own dog food and we now make treats to give them. these are so good i have trouble with my family eating them too!

      you can use cookie cutters to cut them but i roll these out on baking stones and cut them with a pizza rotary cutter.
