1. Homemade Dog Treats

Fact: dogs love sweet potatoes, and sweet potatoes are great for dogs!

Making dog treats might sound a little daunting, but really it’s no harder than making cookies. You just bake them a bit longer, so they go from a cookie consistency to more like a biscuit. This recipe for sweet potato dog treats is my dog, Jenna’s, favorite!

  1. Hello – While browsing for homemade puppy projects, I found this page on your site. Such great ideas. Thought you might be interested in a very green DIY puppy project I am experimenting with at the moment. I wrote up a blog post which describes a variation on a Wee wee pad, which doesn’t need to be sent to a landfill, but can instead be used in a garden once its been ‘loaded’!
