6Cheese treats / Sugar The Golden Retriever
Shred some cheese (two cups), add oil, water and 4 cups of flour and mix it. Using this dough, make biscuits and bake then in the oven. Most dogs love cheese, and so do their owners. If you don’t have special tools for making biscuits bone-shaped, use a glass to cut circles.
