Homemade dog treats … doesn’t that conjure up thoughts of warm, tasty, aromatic biscuits baking in the oven, just like homemade chocolate chip cookies?
It is our experience that not too many people will turn down a homemade cookie. There’s just something more tasty and more satisfying about one that came from someone’s oven rather than being mass-produced and sold in a big package.
The same goes for dog treats.
Make your own and watch your dog during the process. He can tell you are making something just for him. It just may be that the concurrent stimulation of his olfactory nerves is contributing to the anticipation.
