,Slobbery kisses from your pup may be sweet, but dog breath definitely isn't. Make these dog breath treats for sweeter licks!I am so excited! In just a few weeks, my husband and I are bringing our Cairn Terrier puppy home! This is the first pet we're getting as a couple and I can't wait to have our furry, new addition in the house. I have been going crazy with puppy prep! In anticipation of our little guy's arrival, I've made quite the checklist of things to get for our puppy's arrival. Included on that list, of course, is treats.

While Puppy Holoka has packaged treats all ready for him to come home to, I've come across a lot of recipes that I want to try, as well. A lot of the recipes I've come across on Pinterest include herbs and veggies we currently have growing in our garden. I like having nutritious, homemade options to keep our little guy happy and healthy. So I set out to make these dog breath treats.

But it's easy to make it better with the beneficial ingredients like parsley and mint. Mint naturally sweetens breath while parsley is also a good bad breath buster, but also aids in good digestion. Coconut oil has many benefits for dogs, too. It's great for their skin, coats, digestion, brain health, and more!
Since we have a ton of fresh parsley and mint from our garden, it's even easier to make these dog breath treats!
