One of the benefits of making your own treats is you know exactly what goes in treats. There are some ingredients that can be harmful for your dog, for example, garlic, onion, grape, chocolate etc.
Yindee loves his food, but he's more excited when it comes to his treats. I normally give him a treat when he behaves well during my macaron class or during our walking trip. Although he frustrates me sometimes, he's really a good dog, compare to some other dogs I've been around.
A good dog is a pride, so give him/her some love!
