I was inspired to try my hand at baking dog treats when I came across this simple recipe for human cookies. When I heard that my sister, Alice Patterson, was going to be photographing her longtime client, Annie Taylor’s new puppy, it seemed like the perfect time to start baking!
You can find so many heart shaped plates on Amazon. (Visit your local rescue or Petfinder to find a cute puppy!)
These banana beet dog treats are pretty easy to make and all of our taste testers (6 dogs so far) think they are delicious!
