Recently we went to Petco to buy more dog treats, we usually buy the bulk biscuits from the treat bar.

It was time to DIY dog treats for my Siberian Husky, Cannoli, who is very treat motivated.  After a bit of online browsing and experimenting I came up with this recipe for dog biscuits.  It's very ...
