Just like we take care of our own bodies by filling it with healthy foods, we can take care of our dogs by doing the same. Store bought dog treats contain unnecessary ingredients and preservatives. By feeding your dog only the most natural ingredients, they will have more energy and stronger immune systems.
Please remember that not all dogs require the same nutrition, so it’s important to speak with your veterinarian before feeding your dog any new foods. A vet has the knowledge necessary to understand your particular pet’s dietary needs.
Here is a roundup of 10 homemade dog treat recipes that you can easily try introducing to your dog once you confirm their nutritional needs. From crunchy to soft, savory to sweet, and even frozen treats, you are likely to find a favorite or two for your pup!
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
If you’re making some for yourself, go ahead and throw in some extra fries for your furry pal. These are literally nothing but sweet potatoes, coconut oil, turmeric, and cinnamon.
Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
These healthy treats require only a handful of ingredients that you likely already have at home—flour, peanut butter, honey, and egg.
Banana Blueberry Ice Cream
What could be more simple than frozen bananas and blueberries blended together into creamy goodness?!
Frozen Dog Treat Pupsicles
Three ingredients can be blended together to make this sweet treat for your pup on a hot summer day. You can easily leave out the dog biscuit, which is used as a popsicle stick in this recipe. Just serve it in a bowl instead.
Cheesy Bone Dog Treats
Dogs love cheese! Opt for a savory treat rather than a sweet treat for your best friend.
Chicken Wild Rice Dog Treats
These savory muffins require just a little prep time, but they’ll have your dog barking for more.
Apple Cinnamon Dog Treats
It’s an oatmeal cookie for your dog (and perhaps your toddler, too)!
