Homemade dog treats

In the eyes of your dog, nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a tasty treat. If you’re looking to spoil your greyhound and create something at home, rather than just going out and buying expensive dog treats, try one of our delicious recipes and watch your pooch devour every morsel in the blink of an eye.

Mini Carrot Cupcakes

  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the carrot mixture until fully mixed (the mixture will be quite thick, but you can add a little water if you find the mixture too dry).
  5. Spoon the mixture into mini muffin cups, using a wet finger to press the dough into place (the dough will only rise slightly when cooked so don’t fret about over filling the cups).
  6. Bake for 25 minutes
