And your dog knows something is going on too, he can almost taste it when he sniffs the air. There’s turkey, biscuits, baking and pigs in a blanket waffling from the kitchen that can make a dog swoon!
However some of these festive holiday foods are not great for dogs to eat, so why not bake something that they can enjoy! Kurgo was nice enough to share their pet friendly cookbook with us and we’ve gone through the book and think these holiday dog treats are dog wagging good. With loads to choose from I’m sure you’ll find a yummy treat that your pup with love!
