15 Homemade Dog Treat Recipes for Your Best Furry Friend

Just like we occasionally enjoy using our kitchen based DIY skills to treat ourselves, we also adore doing so for our furry friends! Our dogs, in particular, are always huge fans of whatever homemade dog treats we whip up. We started making our own when one of our pups was being tested for food allergies but, because they seemed to like the treats we made at home so much more than the store bought ones, we kept on making them even after that theory was disproved! Now, we just keep our eyes peeled for homemade dog treats we haven’t tried yet so we can switching things up sometimes and keep our canine pals interested.

If you’re going to put in the time and effort it takes to make your best furry friend a really great treat, would you prefer to make sure their very favourite things are involved? Well, you might not be the biggest fan of feeding your dog all kinds of human food regularly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make them a treat that at least tastes like those things! These homemade peanut butter bacon treats by Sally’s Baking Addiction are the perfect example of what we mean.

3. Simple dog cookies with bacon glaze

Do you love the idea of including some kind of bacon flavouring in your recipe because your dogs really do go wild for it but you’re also not sure you want to get very complicated with the ingredients in your first few tries? In that case, we think you might prefer the way Pinch of Yum made these very simple dog cookies but dressed them up with a little bit of bacon glaze!

4. 3-ingredient chicken dog biscuits
