The Great Grinner’s Goody Exchange
Home Made Deliciousness is waiting for your dog in the See Spot Grin freezer! Turkey liver brownies, peanut butter molasses treats, pork brownies and dehydrated beef liver have all been shared through our goodie exchange.
Here’s how you can participate:
Pick up one of our recipe cards in the classroom.
The next time you bake for your dog make a double batch.
Fill a sandwich bag with the deliciousness you made.
Fill out the recipe card and attach it to the bag.
Swap it out for one of the other treat bags in the See Spot Grin classroom.
Watch your dog devour his new treats!
