Golden Star Dog Treat Recipe

To celebrate the launch of dog trainer Julie Tottman’s new book Super Star Dogs we have designed a recipe for some Golden Star dog biscuits to help teach your dog some new tricks.
Trick-training is a fantastically easy way to bond with your dog, plus keep them active and entertained. In this clever little book from Julie Tottman – the animal trainer behind Harry Potter and Game of Thrones – you’ll discover everything you need to teach your dog the basics they need to begin learning all sorts of different tricks.
Plus if you share an image with us on instagram showing your dog performing a trick you could be in with a chance to win a copy of the book.
