Bacon and Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe

No dog can resist the lure of bacon…which makes this dog treat recipe an instant success!

There are two foods that dogs just can’t say no to—bacon and peanut butter! And we know that your pooch can’t eat these two faves all the time, but as an occasional treat in moderation, there’s nothing wrong with a little indulgence! Besides, with flax seeds, kindly base mix and an egg included in the mix, we like to think that healthy and indulgence are perfectly combined in this homemade dog cookie.
