How To: Make Your Own DIY Dog Treats!

I'm known around these parts as "the crazy Schnauzer lady", but in truth, I'm crazy about ALL dogs... and think they deserve some tasty, homemade treats every now and then! This simple, two-ingredient recipe can be customized like nobody's business, so get creative and have a little fun (while pampering your pooch)!

I originally made these treats for Wrigley's first birthday (yes, I celebrated it. Re: crazy dog lady; see above), and have made a ton of variations since. The basic recipe is as follows:

Ingredients:

2 cups 100% organic whole wheat flour (or wheat germ, or spelt, or rolled oats, or a mixture of these, etc.)
2 (4oz) jars of pureed baby food - beef, blueberry, sweet potato, chicken - whatever. Just make sure there are no onions/onion powder in it*. Avoid any with artificial preservatives (should be easy, most are just pureed veggies and water).

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Mix together to form a stiff dough. If necessary, add extra flour or water as needed.

3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to about a 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shape or a pizza cutter to make cubes.

4. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, place treats about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely before storing in a paper bag (storing in an air-tight container will make them soft, but they're still edible).

Easy, right? Now this is where you can get creative! Consider including grated carrots or sweet potatoes, a little bit of parsley (which supposedly helps with bad breath), blueberries, or some of that homemade peanut butter!

How will you customize these treats for your pooch? Do you have any other homemade dog treat recipes? Share them in the comments!

*Onions are toxic to dogs! (So is chocolate, grapes and raisins----see the is it safe to eat post)
