These simple dog treat recipes are sure to become your pup’s favorite snack – and yours too for being so easy to make!
The only reason any of us are alive in this house is because my husband cooks. If it were left up to me, we’d all starve to death (or eat a lot of cereal!). I overcook bacon, burn pasta and have the worst timing in the world when it comes to cooking more than two things at once.
But I’m learning that no matter how kitchen-challenged one is, making dog treats is a fairly simple and fun thing to do. It’s hard to mess something up too bad when it only contains three ingredients!
DOG TREAT RECIPES – The Benefits of MakinG YOUR OWN
We all love to spoil our dogs, and for many of them, treats are a part of this love. But we want to be careful what we feed them. And how much.
My friend’s 7-pound mix Lucy probably doesn’t need to consume as much as my neighbor’s 150-pound Cane Carso! So one important health benefit related to homemade treats is being able to size them specifically for your dog. You also get to choose what goes into the treats.
Another benefit to making your own dog treats is that they are more likely to be healthy, wholesome and safe. You won’t have to worry about dog food recalls and ingredients when you make your own doggie treats.
And what’s more, making your own dog treats make unique and cost-effective holiday gifts for people on a budget who have dog-loving friends. You just whip up a batch of yummy treats, put them in a nice mason jar and accessorize it with ribbons and a tag.
Below are 10 simple dog treat recipes made with three ingredients or less. Always review the ingredients and if you decide to substitute a food or spice, make sure it’s safe for your dog. Here is a list of the most dangerous foods for dogs.
Here are some ingredients that you’ll want to avoid:
- Xylitol (artificial sweetener)
- Onions or Onion Powder
