Easy to make, all natural Homemade Dog Treats – healthy, tasty and ones your dogs will surely love!
Have you met our dogs yet?
We have three; a Lab named Tucker, a Miniature Poodle named Bella and a Toy Poodle named Louie. We didn’t set out to have three dogs, they somehow adopted our family – one puppy at a time – and they certainly do make us happy.
My three older kids joke that when each child leaves, my husband and I get a new dog. This certainly wasn’t our intention, it just seemed to work out this way.
My dogs follow me all over the house. They sit at my feet when I’m working on the computer, they keep my kitchen clean when I’m testing out new recipes and they seem to know when 6 PM rolls around because they wait anxiously by the back door for my husband to come home.
Tucker, our Lab is the baby. He totally thinks he’s human and can’t seem to give us enough love. He’s just a big sweetheart.
Bella, our white poodle is affectionately known as our “cat”. I often feel like we are just taking up space in “her” house. She loves us by letting us live here. She’s “my” dog and the one we’ve had the longest and she really is sweet as can be.
Finally we have Louie. Oh, Louie. What can I say, he.is.a.handful.
If there is a such thing as “small-dog syndrome”, Louie has got it.
It’s funny how each of their personalities are so different.
Because I love these guys and because they are a big part of our family, I wanted to make them their own special treats and these homemade dog treats sure are special.
I love that these treats are made from real ingredients, nothing artificial added.
Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats
The best part of these homemade dog treats is that they’re so easy to make.
Just a few ingredients – whole wheat flour, oats, peanut butter, an egg, chicken broth, a banana, and nonfat dry milk.
These bone-shaped cookie cutters are so cute to use too! I love that they come in different sizes, perfect for the three sizes of my own dogs.
These homemade dog treats would make great gifts to give other dog lovers in your life.
They keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at room temperature for up to 1 week.
The ingredients in these dog treats are all approved by our veterinarian as being safe for dogs. If you have any questions or concerns, please consult with your veterinarian. If your dog has a wheat allergy, substitute all purpose flour for wheat flour in the recipe.
