Here is what you'll need!

1. BLUEBERRIES
*Try replacing training treats with blueberries.
*Training treats can be high in sugar and gluten which can cause itchy skin, fatigue and other problems.
*Blueberries have the same antioxidant effect in dogs as humans.
*Two or three blueberries are a sufficient treat.

2. SWEET POTATO CHEWS
-Cut up a sweet potato lengthwise to make wedges
-Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F / 180 °C for 4 - 5 hours

3. COCONUT OIL
*Snacking on coconut oil can freshen your dog's breath and provide various health benefits.
*Coconut oil should be introduced slowly and give only once or twice a day, typically with a meal or as a treat.
*Coconut oil has a high fat value. You should monitor your dog’s weight when giving coconut oil.

4. PEANUT BUTTER DOG TREATS

-1/2 cup oatmeal
