Homemade Dog Treats

Huckleberry wanted me to pass along his thanks for all the birthday wishes! He had a fun day filled with cuddling, chewing, chasing, and snacking on these homemade dog treats! 
This recipe is so simple and only requires 2 ingredients! Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 cups 100% organic whole wheat flour (for dogs with wheat allergies use wheat germ or rolled oats)
  • 2 (4oz) jars of pureed baby food (I used sweet potato, but any beef or chicken flavor would be good too. Just steer clear of onions and other ingredients that don't sit well with our furry friends. For a more extensive list of what foods dogs can and cannot have click here!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour and pureed food together to form a stiff dough (if necessary, add a little water). Roll out the dough and use cookie cutters to form your desired shape. Place on a greased baking sheet. Cook for 20-25 minutes. Allow treats to cool completely before storing. 
Huck suspected that the sweet potato smelling goodness was for him and waited patiently right by the stove!
Not only did Huck love the treats, but there are so many other variations to try I don't think he could ever get sick of these as a snack!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Nice and easy! I've made a dew different types before and never had a problem with them being turned away. Dogs are so easy to cook for.

Great post, my dog is allergic to so many foods including wheat so I love the oats option!
