If you like to purchase treats for your dogs, chances are you know from personal experience how quickly the cost of dog treats can add up. Dog owners who want to save money without cutting corners should consider making homemade dog treats for their pet. Here are four easy and tasty treats that you can make at home for your dog.
1. PEANUT BUTTER TREATS
Just about all dogs love peanut butter. Therefore, you should consider making peanut butter treats. To make quick and easy dog treats, all you need is two eggs, two cups of flour, and half of a cup of peanut butter. Just mix all of the ingredients together and slowly add water until the mixture has a dough-like consistency. You can then use cookie cutters to finish making the dog treats.
2. CHICKEN DOG TREATS
Dogs also love chicken so you can expect the chicken dog treats to be a huge hit with your pet. For this simple recipe, you need a half cup of cooked rice, one cup of diced chicken, one egg, three tablespoons of rice flour, and some parsley. You can replace the chicken with any other type of meat as a substitute. You can use cookie cutters to shape the mixture into dog treats.
3. TWO-INGREDIENT DOG TREATS
If you’re new to cooking, you should consider making these two-ingredient dog treats. In fact, even if you have plenty of experience with cooking, you should start out with this recipe if you’ve never made dog treats before. For this recipe, all you need are two jars of pureed baby food and two cups of flour, preferably organic whole wheat flour.
4. FIVE-INGREDIENT DOG BISCUIT RECIPE
Once you have a little experience when it comes to making dog treats, you can try your hand at a five-ingredient dog biscuit recipe. You will need oats, peanut butter, whole wheat flour, flaxseed, and beef broth. If you don’t have cookie cutters on hand to shape the dough into dog biscuits, you can use the bottom of shot glasses.
Making homemade treats are a great way to save money without having to give up spoiling your dog. Consider using one of these recipes to make dog treats and take the dog biscuits along with you to the local pet park in your community.
