Thanksgiving Turkey Dog Treats

Let’s talk turkey—your dog will be thankful that you made these homemade treats.

What are you thankful for? Having wonderful family and friends around you, a delicious bounty on your table and a loyal pooch sitting by your side. All of these things are reasons to celebrate Thanksgiving. But because you can’t share any of your Thanksgiving turkey dinner with your dog, why not make him his own special turkey treat that he’ll gobble down? Made with Honest Kitchen Embark turkey recipe, mixed veggies and pureed pumpkin, these treats feature all of the goodness Thanksgiving is famous for.
