Dog Bone Recipes - Our Suggestions

Dog bone recipes are used to make crunchy treats for your dog.

There are several treats on the market that have been tested and proven to help with dental hygiene, but it is better to assume that the recipes on this page do not.

Before preparing these recipes, please review our Dog Organic Treat Choices page along with the general feeding guidelines. Dog bone recipes combined with all other treats should make up no more than 10% of your dog's total diet.
