In honor of National Dog Biscuit Day, Wags and Walks is sharing a list of homemade dog treat recipes that your pet will love! Just like we love our homemade chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven, your pup knows the taste of homemade treats from one sniff! Let’s face it - homemade is always better and allows us to add the most important ingredient, LOVE! Knowing that pup parents are busy and don’t always have time to bake, we compiled five easy-to-make and delicious dog treat recipes that will leave your dog pawing for more.
For The Peanut Butter Lover / Whole Foods Market
This recipe not only has peanut butter and banana (which your pup is guaranteed to love), but parsley is one of the ingredients, giving your dog a chance to alleviate themselves from bad breath. A pro tip is to sneak parsley or mint leaves in treats to give that added fresh breath effect. Additionally, peanut butter is a great source of protein, which is beneficial for all of the playing and running your pup does.
For Your Pup’s Best Pal / Martha Stewart
Let’s face it, when we bake for our friends, presentation is key! These Paw Print Dog Treats by Martha Stewart are just too doggone cute to pass up. They make the perfect gift for your pup’s best pals, whether it’s a birthday celebration, holiday treat, or just because.
For The Young At Heart / Kol’s Notes
These salmon and sweet potato dog treats are a great treat for older dogs that may need softer treats or have special dietary needs. The combination of salmon and sweet potato makes for a healthy snack that is also sweet and delicious. Always remember to consult a vet to find out about any particular allergies your pet may have!
For The Energetic Pup / Fido Bakery
These are the perfect goodnight treats for your pup! The combination of chamomile and oats triggers relaxation, which is helpful in calming them down before bedtime. Your pup will drift off into dreamland and be sleeping soundly in no time.
For The Bacon Lover / Damn Delicious
Who doesn’t love bacon? If you feel like totally spoiling your pup, these are the perfect treats to do so. Your dog will be sure to thank you for these delicious biscuits, but don’t expect them to share!
Homemade dog biscuits are the perfect excuse to spoil your pup and provide them with healthier and tastier options. We hope that these recipes will inspire you to bake some delicious treats for your pup - they deserve it! Happy National Dog Biscuit Day!
