My dogs love these soft, smelly homemade salmon and sweet potato dog treats.

These treats salmon and sweet potato treats are super simple to make, really easy to break apart, soft to chew and perfect for dogs who are in training or senior pups.

There’s always something so wholesome about baking dog treats at home.

I rarely make human cookies, but making dog biscuits makes me feel so accomplished and, truth be told, I love spoiling my dog with something made just for him. I hesitated to call these brownies though – since they’re really more of a thin, dense cake.

Since they’re super moist, they don’t have the longest shelf life. I usually freeze half the batch and pull them out as needed.
