Healthy Dog Biscuit Recipes: Homemade is Best!
Our great selection of healthy dog biscuit recipes will help you to create mouthwatering (or in this case, muzzle-watering) home-made dog treats that are not only delicious, but full of natural goodness.

Healthy dog biscuit recipes are so easy to make and so much better for your dog's health than most shop-bought!
Our 'Liver and Oatmeal Crunch' is a particular favorite of Max's, and many of his doggie buddies.
You can substitute raw liver for liver powder (1/4 cup) which can be bought at most natural food or health shops, but personally, I think there's nothing better than the real stuff!
Why not try baking a batch for your Cocker Spaniel and watch that tail wag with appreciation?
