Does anyone know of any easy treats to make for dogs?

asked by
PetsOther

I have 2 dogs and 1 is little and 1 is big.  I go through alot of treats and bones because my little one eats them alot slower than the bigger one.  I do spoil them alot, but I love to keep doing it.  The problem is money got tight right now and I was spending $25.00 a month on treats/bones.  I never minded but right now I dont have the extra money.

So I am wondering if anyone could help me out with some easy recipes to make bones or treats for my doggie's.

here is a natural alternative to rawhide... a sweet potato! 



  1. Preheat oven to 250° F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut off one side of the sweet potato lengthwise, as close to the edge as possible. Cutting the side of the potato first allows you to then turn the potato onto this flat surface that you have just created. Having a stable area to rest the potato will make it easier to cut the potato into slices. Don't discard that first piece, it comes out just as yummy as the rest!
  4. Cut the rest of the potato into 1/3" slices, no smaller than 1/4".
  5. Place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 3 hours, turning half way through.
  7. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Storing - Although these treats are dried, you will want to keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. You can freeze them for up to 4 months.

Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Prep Time 25 minutesCook Time 25 minutesTotal Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour or more as needed

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat pumpkin puree, peanut butter and eggs on medium-high until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Gradually add 2 1/2 cups flour at low speed, beating just until incorporated. Add an additional 1/4 cup flour at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky.

You could cut of pieces (2 inch cubes) of chicken breast and fry them like nuggets but don't let it get to hard/ crunchy and just a dash of salt and if your pets do not have problems with gluten lightly bread it.  Freeze them when you're done storing into little zip lock bags and you would have to heat them up one minute when you need them. i am certain for less than ten dollars you could get a pack of chicken breast at walmart and make these for your pets.

Here are some recipes from Pinterest, I make my dogs all of the time, too expensive and unhealthy to buy.
