Homemade dog training treats are more nutritional and healthy as you know what you are using and putting in the making of that treat. There are no chemicals added to it like the ones available in the market.

Treating your dog with a fresh treat is better than canned food preserved for god knows how long.

However, special care should be taken as you have to give your dog a balanced food treat. Consult a specialist for that.
