Blog - Homemade Dog Treats

We love our dogs! They're our best friends and our family, and as such, we want to treat them to the best things in life. That's where homemade dog treats come in. These treats are ideal if you'd like to have better control over the ingredients in what your dog consumes or if you want to give him something special during training- every time he responds appropriately to a command, give him a treat! I like to give homemade dog bones to my German Shepherd, Sophie for this reason.

Also, if you're looking for a gift idea for a fellow dog owner, our doggie treat recipes create canine vittles that make a thoughtful (and useful) gift for any occasion!

Regardless of which recipe you use, you can make the doggie treats extra special by personalizing them. If these will be gifts, that will be a nice added touch. How to do it: once the dog bone is cut with the cookie cutter, before baking, use a toothpick and write the dog's name on the bone.

For the treat shape, we suggest Dog Bone cookie cutters, naturally. We have three sizes, so you can pick the best size for your breed. You could also use the Dog cookie cutter, Doghouse cookie cutter, Dog Paw cookie cutter, or any of our other pet-themed shapes. Sit, stay, roll over…and then get baking ;) Your dog will thank you for making more cookies!
