At Purrdy Paws we love to cook for our pets. We figure they end up eating right
off our plates anyway so why not make a special home cooked meal day for
them.With today's modern focus on GMOs
and local food sources it's nice to know you can make your own dog treats out
of ingredients you trust. It's quick, easy, fun and now you can be confident in
knowing you have a healthy reward for your good doggy! Here's a gourmet menu
designed just for your canine friend.
