Simple Homemade Doggie Treat Recipes

  1. Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Cups – Place a quart of plain, unsweetened yogurt into a blender. Warm a cup of natural peanut butter in your microwave or over the stovetop, then add the peanut butter to the blender. Blend on high until the mix is smooth, then pour into a cupcake pan lined with papers.  Place them in the freezer until frozen solid, then dump out the cupcakes and store frozen in a Ziploc bag. Take them out as a cooling treat on a hot day.
  2. Doggie Trail Mix – Cut chunks of meat into 1/2″ cubes (lean red meat, chicken breast or fish all work well);  cut similar sized chunks of potatoes, carrots, squashes,  and/or other vegetables (avoid onions) and add bananas if your dog has a sweet tooth. Stir up your ingredients and place them in a dehydrator until they are fully dried. This mix is perfect for a walk and will store well if properly dried and sealed.
  3. Bacon Biscuits – Let your children do the mixing and rolling by hand with this one! Add 2 eggs, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of water, 1 tsp. salt and 10 tbsp. bacon grease to a mixing bowl.  Stir well, then slowly stir in 5 cups of whole wheat flour. Roll the dough into balls and bake them on a greased cookie sheet for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees.
