The purpose of my dog treats is to teach any person or child with parental help, who want to keep their pets healthy, how to make yummy dog snacks. This recipe will take a new comer approximately 10-15 minutes to prepare and about 25-30 minutes to bake. As you become more comfortable with the procedure you will see you will cut your time in half on the preparation time. This is a fun activity for parents to do with their kids and is a good way to get them active in cooking and learning about the kitchen.
