Homemade Holiday Dog Treats

The holidays are all about spending time together with your extended family. So why not make some time for your furry and four legged loved ones as well? We thought that spending time in the kitchen with your immediate family or maybe virtually with friends & family who can’t be physically with you, while cooking and baking some treats for your pups, would be a great way to bring you + your family + Beest, close and bonded for the holidays!!
