Homemade mince pies that are safe for your dog!

Mince pies are totally delicious, but for humans only sadly. Why? You ask, well raisins are poisonous to dogs! Not to mention sometimes mince pies include alcohol and other nastiness for dogs such as sugar supplements.
Try this safe recipe so your dog can enjoy with the Christmas deliciousness! But make sure to separate them, we’re not sure any guests will appreciate biting into this meaty treat.
These pies can be rather filling, so make sure to reduce your dogs treats and food accordingly and remove any allergy requirements.
