Thats a really good idea!!Don't discount leftovers and such! My old dog loved carrots, bell peppers and potatoes and any time you have leftover chicken or other meats, that can be a treat, too. I have a tupperware container in the fridge labeled "Kabota Treats". It's the kind with the different sections, probably meant for school lunches. When my husband cooks he empties it out and then puts in whatever he had leftover that a dog can eat and then and when I clean up after dinner, I add to it, too. Those are treats for the next 24-48 hours, depending upon when cooking happens again.
