With Halloween just around the corner, it’s important to keep your furry babies out of harm from the dangers of candy, chocolate, and those funny looking decorations. Make sure to keep a close eye on these bundles of joy during this month since it’s very easy for them to get into some spooky trouble. Remember, chocolate is a BIG NO for your pets! Since dogs can’t partake in our candy eating festivities, why not make them some of their own Halloween inspired treats that’ll be sure to keep them included.

Thanks to the Irresistible Pet, we have a simple DIY recipe for you and your family to follow!
