My Dog Treats Recipes

How to make the best dog treats for your pets. I have three dog treat recipes to share with you that I make for my Yorkshire Terrier, Lexie. She loves homemade peanut butter and coconut oil treats the most. I firmly believe in healthy food for dogs.

Peanut Butter Recipe

This is a dog biscuit that you can cook to be soft or crunchy to suit your dog's taste. The biscuits stay fresh in the fridge for three weeks if stored in an airtight container. They are ideal for making in bulk because they also freeze very well for up to six months.

I use Whole Wheat Brown Flour in this recipe. You can substitute it for White all purpose flour depending on your own dogs dietary needs. The ingredients are for one large tray of dog treats. Once you have cooked these and know that your dog loves them you can double or treble the amount of ingredients to allow you to freeze some of them.

  3. Prepare a baking tin by spreading a small amount of flour onto it
  4. Add the dog biscuit dough to the tray and roll out to about ¼ inch thickness.
  5. Using a knife or a pizza cutter make small indents into the dough. Going up and then across it. This will mark out the squares for you and make it easier when you go to separate them after they have cooked.

Homemade Dog Treats

I hope you will make some of these healthy peanut butter dog treats for your dog too. I am sure they will love them as much as my dog Lexie does. They are a healthy alternative to the processed treats that are sold in the shops and also a lot cheaper to make too. They store very well and can last in the freezer for months.
