About a year ago I begin making my own dog treats after getting tired of buying treats with cheap ingredients, I wanted to know what I was feeding my dogs, and making them is more fun anyway! Interestingly enough, I found that not only is it more fun, but the dogs actually prefer them to store bought ones, from then on I have made all of the treats my dogs eat. I don’t use treats for training, but both the foster mom dogs and my neighbor’s dog Anne, (my neighbor’s dog spends most of her time at my house) enjoy a treat now and then.
My first treats were a five ingredient recipe as I wanted to start simple and work my way up. Link to the recipe below. The dogs really enjoyed it and still do, I like like these simple treats, they are easy to make and are nice when I don’t have a ton of time.
After deciding I wanted to continue to make my own treats, I purchased this cute set of doggie cookie cutters, they work great and I would definitely recommend them!
The second recipe I tried is still the biggest hit with my dogs, they go nuts for one of these treats and the make the house smell great while baking them, lol.
The most recent ones I have tried were these oatmeal, peanut butter & banana treats. Both Cocoa and Anne gave their approval of these!
I am always looking for new treats to try, I would love to know what your favorite recipes are! Hope are all have a great weekend!
