Dogs are more than just a pet they are part of the family and we all love to spoil them. What better way to show your love than to make some homemade dog treats and the best bit is you know exactly what is in them.
The best homemade dog treats are the ones that are made with ingredients that we purchase from the supermarket.
Show Me the Biscuit
The great thing about cooking for your four legged friend is that you don’t need to be an expert. They really don’t care what it looks like as long as it smells and tastes great. The other great thing is you do not need anything fancy and probably have the ingredients in your cupboard Feel free to experiment a bit and have some fun! Mix and bake your dog treats like regular cookies, but take out the sugar and add ingredients such as vegetables, chicken or beef bouillon, or peanut butter. You’ll most likely want to make your homemade dog treats a little thicker than the typical cookie, so be sure to increase the baking time. When your homemade dog treats are done, guaranteed someone you know (your dog, of course!) will be willing and eager to test them for you. Keep track of his favourites!
Everything in Moderation
Chances are your dog will go wild over his homemade dog treats, and that will make you feel great! It’s hard not to spoil your dog when he’s so appreciative, but keep in mind that dog treats should make up no more than 10 percent of your dog’s daily diet. Also make sure to watch the fat content in your dog’s treats, and stay on the safe side by sticking to lower-fat versions. If you are modifying human cookie recipes, make sure to never use chocolate, onions, raisins, grapes, or macadamia nuts in your dog treats, as these ingredients are all highly toxic to dogs.
So at the end of the day don’t worry to much about what it looks like and have fun and be creative.
