How to Make Dog Treats Easy and Fun
By Jennifer P. April
Making dog treats can be really easy and fun. First you need to decide what kind of treats you want to make. You can browse dog treat cookbooks for recipes, the internet or just try to make something up. Chances are, your dog will love anything homemade just for him! (or her!)
If you’re making your own dog treats, you have a lot of latitude. You can add flaxseeds to make them healthier (flaxseeds are loaded with healthy fats) and you can make them in any shape you want. You can make dog treat muffins or flat apple cinnamon bones or a meatloaf cake. You can make them for gifts, too.
There are a few ingredients you should not include in your dog treats:
1–Raisins can actually be quite harmful to your pet’s kidney system. Stay away from grapes and raisins in dog treats.
2–Chocolate is probably the best known of the doggie "no no’s" . Chocolate has an ingredient called theobromine in it and it can be really harmful to your pet. Even fatal. All kinds of problems can occur including pancreatitis. The darker the chocolate, the more harmful the chocolate.
3–Onions, too, can be harmful to your pet’s system. They have to eat of lot of them but enough onions can cause a type of anemic reaction.
On the other hand, your pet can enjoy peanut butter, liver, apples, carrots and any number of other ingredients.
If you want to make some nice doggie cookies, first you need to pick out a recipe. Then you need to gather your tools and start baking!
One dog treat recipe my dog especially likes is Pumpkin Wafers. Pumpkin is loaded with Beta carotene and anti-oxidants especially vitamins C and E. These vitamins help to lower cancer risk, cataracts and heart disease.
Directions: Preheat oven to 300 F.
Mix all ingredients together. Drop small spoonfuls ( I use the about half of a tablespoon) onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
