Kits make it simple to treat them right.
Have a pup party coming up? For those special occasions (or everyday pleasures), here are more ways to treat your dog well and economically. These companies have taken the worry out of getting it right by assembling dry human-grade ingredients in ready-to-mix packages. Just add liquids, mix and bake. Another handy helper: Cookie cutters come with the biscuit mixes.
