Homemade fall treats!

Written by @razzothebernese

Hi, I’m Razzo, an 8-month-old Bernese Mountain dog. My mom says I’m a smart, sassy, and smiley boy! More importantly, I’m a serious foodie and happen to be the lead Taste Taster behind my mom’s homemade dog treats! A very prestigious position indeed. She started experimenting with baking treats a few days after I arrived home. I began to sit by her feet and watch, making sure everything was up to snuff.


It smelled good up there! Mom was happily surprised by how easy (and cost effective) treats were to make herself…and she hasn’t stopped since! I know, I’m one lucky pup. Fast forward a few months, the two of us are now in the kitchen every week trying new ingredients and recipes.

In under an hour, with a few healthy ingredients, you too can whip up a fresh batch of baked treats for your dog to enjoy!
