Picnics are a great way to get outside with your dog. Especially for senior dogs, they will welcome the opportunity to just sit awhile. We love recipes that we can not only share with our dogs, but ones that are easy and fun to make.
For a more, well behaved and relaxed dog, try hiking before eating to work up an appetite! Or should we say apawtite?
