Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! This dog treat recipe is simple to make and offers a tangy taste.

A slight squeeze of lemon gives the Coconut Lemon Dog Treat Recipe a tang that pooches will love. And it goes so well with coconut – that’s why we’ve added coconut flour and oil to the mix. An egg helps keep it all together, while adding protein. Both Zed and Oscar agree that this treat is one of their favorites!
