If you’re a dog owner, you know that treating your furry friend to tasty snacks is an essential part of showing love and care. Instead of relying on store-bought treats with questionable ingredients that are shelf stable for years(!), why not try making healthy and homemade dog treats? Not only do these treats offer nutritional benefits, but they also give you the satisfaction of knowing exactly what goes into your pup’s snacks.
Maybe your New Year’s resolution, like many, was to eat healthier. Well, don’t stop with just you. Don’t forget about your pets. Homemade pumpkin peanut butter dog treats are a nutritious and tasty way to treat your pup and start their New Year off right, too.
These pumpkin peanut butter homemade dog treats are quick and easy to make. 4 ingredients. One bowl. They are sure to put a smile on your dog’s face and a wag in their tail.
So much of what is sold in big box pet stores is filler and junk. It’s easier, simpler, and more nutritious to make your own.
Why should the kids get all the home baked treats? With all the dog food recalls recently, it’s easy to forget that making simple, nutritious homemade dog biscuits for your furry friend is easy and usually involves just five or six pantry ingredients.
Why pay six, seven, eight dollars or more for organic, natural dog biscuits when you can make a batch of your own in less than a half hour that easily avoids preservatives, strange ingredients, fillers, and harmful chemicals?
I wasn’t really looking for a homemade dog biscuit recipe, I’ve got more than enough treats on my to-bake list already, but one came looking for me anyway and it proved to be a great father/daughter project for Ally, my dog lover. And judging by Dash’s reaction, it worked out alright for him, too.
I tried homemade dog biscuits with our first dog, Lola, twice when I was feeling particularly paternal (this was before the kiddos arrived making that a permanent feeling). I remember each time distinctly because I was in no rush to repeat the recipe. The first one involved lots of raw meat that had to be formed and cooked. The second attempt involved a smell so ghastly that it lingered in the house for days. It should be noted in neither episode did my discomfort stop Lola from snarfing down all the treats.
