How to make natural delicious dog treats


Owning a dog can be expensive, what with food, toys, insurance, vet bills,  buying new trainers after your dog ate your last pair etc. so why not save a little money buy making your own homemade dog treats, its simple, cheap and you know exactly what’s in them.


Here are some of our favourite homemade dog treat recipes


Homemade liver dog treats


These treats are truly amazing, even dogs that are not very food orientated seem to go nuts for these, if you make these, your dog will be the most grateful pooch alive!

1 lb/450g pigs liver

1 lb/450g of cornflour

6oz/170 g potato flour or semolina

1 egg plus milk if more liquid needed

2 grated carrots or a grated apple

1 clove of fresh garlic

1 teaspoon of poppy seed


How to make:


Dry liver with paper towel. Cut into chunks and puree it either in a blender or food processor. Then place in a large mixing bowl.

Add a grated apple to the liver. Or add the grated carrots instead!

Homemade fish oatcake dog treats


Your dog will love these oatcakes, they are tasty, healthy, smell great and just so easy to make!  And from preparation to cooking time they take less than one hour!

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

Place dog biscuits on baking tray and place into a preheated oven at 190°C for around 20-25 mins. (Always keep an eye on them when cooking to make sure they don't burn)



Homemade simple to make, meat free dog treats


I thought a dog treat without using liver or meat would make a nice change so I thought I’d try banana alongside peanut butter and honey.  These buns are great, they have a hard crusty shell which makes them excellent to carry around but moist and bready inside and packed with flavour!  Dogs love them!


Ingredients:


200g Cornflour.

200g Wholemeal flour

1 tablespoon of Honey.

2 eggs

2 bananas .

200g Smooth peanut butter!.


How to make:


Add two eggs, peanut butter, 2 chopped bananas and a tablespoon of honey to a large mixing bowl.

Mash it all together until it is smooth.

Add the flour and the cornflour.

Mix it all together with a fork then roll up your sleeves because you’ll need to get stuck in with your hands to mix it all up! Into a big dough ball.

Roll into little balls and place onto baking tray. Be quite firm when rolling them in your hands!

Place into the oven at 130°C and then cook for 45 minutes.  (Always keep an eye on them when cooking to make sure they don't burn)
