Fancy giving your dog a festive treat this holiday? Try these dog-friendly Christmas mince pies from our Ambassador Dee Dee and her owner Alex.
Made with natural ingredients, you can add cranberry and parsley for a festive feel and anti-inflammatory properties or replace standard flour with coconut flour for a gluten-free, high-fibre alternative.
