5 Recipes for Homemade Dog Treats

Making your own homemade dog treats is a fun activity for you and a nice surprise for your pup.

Many commercial dog treats are filled with preservatives to extend the shelf life, but homemade dog treats use fresh ingredients only. You get to control exactly what you’re giving your dog, and it’s a tasty way to show your love.

Here are some great dog treat recipes to try:

Ingredients

2/3 cups whole wheat flour

3/4 cup stone ground cornmeal

1/4 cup brewers yeast

1/2 cup nonfat dry milk

2/3 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese

3/4 cup low sodium beef broth

1 large egg

2 tablespoons canola oil

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 large shallow baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

Combine the flour, cornmeal, brewers yeast and dry milk in a medium bowl. Stir in the cheddar cheese. Whisk together the broth, egg and oil in a separate bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until a rough dough forms. Knead the dough in the bowl 5-6 times until it comes together.

Step 3

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out to a 1/4-inch thickness. With a 3-inch dog bone or cat shaped cookie cutter, cut out treats and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Press all the scraps together, kneading once or twice, then roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out more treats; repeat if necessary.

Step 4

Bake treats until lightly browned and fairly hard, rotating the pans from top to bottom once, about 30-35 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely; biscuits will harden as they cool. Store in an airtight container.

Ingredients

1 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup margarine or veggie oil spread

¾ cup cornmeal

1 cup boiling water

2 teaspoons white sugar

½ cup milk

2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3 cups whole wheat flour

1 egg, beaten

How to Make It

 

Step 1

After you’ve preheated your oven to 325 degrees F, you’ll want to combine the rolled oats, margarine, and boiling water in a large bowl. While you let it stand – and you should let it stand for 10 minutes – grease a couple of cookie sheets.

Step 2

Thoroughly stir in the sugar, cornmeal, milk, bouillon, cheddar cheese, and egg into the rolled oat mix. Mix in the flour 1 cup at a time, until you’ve formed a stiff dough.

Step 3

Next, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it’s smooth and no longer sticky (you may need to add additional flour to achieve this). Either pat out or roll the dough to 1/2″ thickness, and then cut with a bone-shaped cookie cutter. Place one inch apart on the prepped sheets to avoid the cookies clumping together.

Step 4

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the oven, until they are golden brown. Take out of the oven and allow to cool before giving one to your dog. Store the leftover treats in a loosely covered container.

Ingredients

1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/4 cup flax seed

1/4 cup toasted wheat germ

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 cup pumpkin puree

1/3 cup natural peanut butter

1 large egg

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

1/2 cup water

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 large egg yolk, lightly beaten with 1 teaspoon water

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 large shallow baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

Combine the flour, flax seed, wheat germ and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Whisk together the pumpkin, peanut butter, egg, sugar, water and oil in a separate bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until a very rough dough forms. Knead the dough in the bowl until the dough comes together; it should be very slightly moist.

Step 3

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out to a 1/4-inch thickness. With a 3-inch dog bone or cat shaped cookie cutter, cut out treats and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Press all the scraps together, kneading once or twice, then roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out more treats; repeat if necessary. Brush the top of each treat with the egg yolk.

Step 4

Bake treats until lightly browned and fairly hard, rotating the pans from top to bottom once, about 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely; biscuits will harden as they cool. Store in an airtight container.

“When preparing homemade dog treats, make sure you take into account any allergies that your pet has to specific ingredients. If you are experimenting with new flavors, feed the treat to your dog in a small amount to see how he reacts to it before distributing an entire treat. We’d love to see a photo of your dog enjoying her favorite treat. You can post it in the comments — and please share your favorite dog treat recipe below.”
