Gourmet Doggy Treats

I recently tagged along with one of my gal pals to pick up some doggy necessaries from the supermarket. While browsing through the limited availables, it struck me how expensive they were compared to how relatively simple they seemed.. so it got me thinking why not check out some pet DIY :)  
Naturally the food would be my focus:D  
I found quite a few fun looking canine treats that got me feeling like planning a pet party. Remember treats should make up only 10% of a pets daily diet.
 I've attached the links to the sites *FYR
