Today is National Dog Day — a day when we take time to remember the furriest of our family members! It’s no exaggeration to say that dogs really are man’s best friend. They’re always there to welcome you when you come home, be your snuggle buddy during a movie or give you a good reason to get out and exercise!
We thought it would be a fun idea to celebrate the day with some treats that taste great for the both of you! Sure, these recipes may have originally been made for your furry companion, but with ingredients such as peanut butter, honey and bananas, these treats are appetizing for people as well!
Here are recipes for 5 snacks you can share with your dog!
