Christmas dog treats

If anyone deserves a Christmas present this year, its our furry four-legged friends. Dogs give us unconditional love 365 days a year, but often miss out on the Christmas fun (unless they sneak some leftover roast). With this Christmas dog treat DIY, you can embrace the Christmas baking spirit, and make your dogs happy in the process. Although we’re all for collaboration in the kitchen, we recommend you make these as a surprise treat – if pets are involved, there may not be anything left to bake, and a huge mess to clean up afterwards.
