It's finally time to pull the trigger and do that Pinterest project you've had pinned for a rainy day. DIY dog treats are ridiculously easy to make at home, and while we haven't personally taste-tested them, we've seen firsthand that the dogs are going crazy for them. Because store-bought dog treats get stale and are also made with added ingredients, these fresh-baked treats are the perfect way to show your pooch how much you care.
And did we mention they're super-easy? If you've got some organic peanut butter and whole-wheat flour in your pantry, then you're halfway there:
I'm Kelly Dixon from Smart School House, and I'm here to share a quick-and-easy recipe for DIY dog treats. They are so fun to make that my kids did all of the cookie cutting. So, get the family together and celebrate your dog with these fantastic homemade dog treats.
In your mixing bowl add:
In a separate bowl, combine
Combine all of the ingredients until thoroughly mixed. Using parchment paper, sprinkle a tiny bit of wheat flour on the surface and roll out the dough to reach your desired dog treat thickness. Using your dog bone cookie cutters, cut out dog treats and place them onto a greased cookie sheet.
Before making these dog treats, be sure you take your dog's dietary needs into consideration. Some dogs don't do well with peanut butter while some dogs love it. As always, put your dog's best interest first. However, I've never met a dog that doesn't like homemade treats. They make wonderful gifts tied in baker's twine or delivered in small jars.
