Peanut Butter Cookies

Dogs love peanut butter, and these cookies are a great way to sneak some fish oil into your dog’s diet. Fish oil improves your dog’s coat, making it shiny, soft, and healthier.

Look for organic peanut butter at your grocery store. Many commercial brands of peanut butter have unhealthy hydrogenated oils and additives. Better yet, make your own peanut butter using raw peanuts and peanut oil, and processing the mixture in your food processor.

Ingredients

         2 cups of flour (white or wheat, if your pup has no wheat allergies)

         1 cup of rolled oats

         1/3 cup of smooth peanut butter

         1 tablespoon of honey

         1/2 tablespoon of fish oil

         1 1/2 cups of water

Directions

1.    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.    Mix the flour and oats together in a large mixing bowl. Pour in one cup of water and blend until smooth. Add in the peanut butter, honey, and fish oil and mix until all the ingredients are well blended.

3.    Slowly add the water until the mixture has a thick and doughy consistency.

4.    Lightly flour a cooking surface. Roll the dough onto the cooking surface to create a 1/4 inch thick sheet.

5.    Use a cookie cutter to create shapes. Place the cookies onto a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.

6.    Allow to cool completely before feeding.

Pro Tip: If the dough is too sticky to roll, slowly pad more flour onto the dough ball.

Frozen Yogurt Pops for Dogs

If your dog loves to chase ice cubes around the kitchen, then he’ll love these frozen treats. They’re made from human grade ingredients and include fruit juice and carrots, which give your pup an added vitamin boost. Yogurt has calcium and protein, and can help your dog digest food.

Note that this recipe calls for non-fat yogurt, which is a much healthier alternative to other types of yogurt, especially if your dog is overweight.

Ingredients

         6 oz. container of plain, non-fat frozen yogurt

         1 cup of no-sugar added fruit juice

         1/2 cup of carrots, minced

Directions

1.    Add the yogurt, fruit juice, and carrots into a medium-sized bowl. Stir until the ingredients are smooth and well-blended.

2.    Drop the mixture into the ice cube trays by spoonful.

3.    Freeze until the ingredients are solid.

Pro Tip: Use hard plastic trays instead of the softer rubber ones to make the treats. The treats are easier to remove from a hard tray. 

Dog Food Recipe No 6 

Fruit and Vegetable Strips

These strips work as a cheaper alternative to the organic chewy treats sold in pet stores. They also break apart easily, so you can serve smaller pieces as training rewards. Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamin C, which can help boost your dog’s immune system.

Ingredients

         1 small sweet potato

         1 medium banana

         1 cup carrots, minced

         1/2 cup unsweetened organic applesauce

         2 cups of whole wheat flour (white if your dog has allergies)

         1 cup of rolled oats

         1/3 cup of water

Directions

1.    Cook the sweet potato in the microwave for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the insides are soft. Set aside and allow to cool.

2.    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

3.    Mash the banana and sweet potato in a large mixing bowl with a hand masher until smooth. Add in the carrots, flour, and oats. Slowly add in the applesauce and water while mixing.

4.    The ingredients will form a soft dough. Roll the dough on to a lightly floured surface until the dough is 1/8 inch thick.

5.    Cut the dough into strips.

6.    Cook on a baking sheet for 25 minutes.

7.    Store leftover strips in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Pro Tip: Do not worry about overcooking the sweet potato. Softer potatoes will mash easier.

         4 cups of water

         1 pound of ground Soya

         2 cups of brown rice

         1 cup of carrots, chopped

3.    Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook an additional 15 minutes, or until the rice is soft and tender.

4.    Add the carrots and green beans and cook for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

5.    Allow to cool before serving.

6.    Store extra dinners in the fridge for up to five days.

Pro Tip: Always avoid using heavy oil to brown the Soya. The high fat content of the oil may upset your dog’s stomach.

         1 cup of black beans, drained

Dog Food Recipe No 8 

Fruit Parfait for Dogs

Your dog deserves a nice dessert every once in a while. This parfait mixes dairy and fruit, so it tastes great but also gives your pup a nice dose of vitamins and protein.

Ingredients

         1/2 cup plain, non-fat yogurt

         1/2 cup of strawberries, diced

         1/2 cup of blueberries, diced

         1/2 cup of applesauce

Directions

1.    Blend all ingredients in a medium size bowl until the yogurt is smooth and the fruit is well blended.

2.    Serve in small amounts.

3.    Store in the fridge for up to seven days.

Pro Tip: On days you plan to serve your pup a fruit parfait, reduce the amount of regular food by one half to one cup to keep from over-feeding.

 

Final Word

While most dogs can handle a variety of different treats fed in small doses, some might get an upset stomach if you switch foods too quickly or too often. Before you start making your own homemade dog food, talk to your vet and ask if he or she has any special ingredient suggestions, as some breeds may be more prone to food allergies than others. After getting your vet’s approval, switch your dog’s food over gradually, slowing mixing in a homemade dish with your regular food over the course of several days.

When preparing homemade dog treats, make sure you take into account any allergies that your pet has to specific ingredients. You will want to avoid adding any ingredient that you know that your pet has reacted poorly to in the past. If you are experimenting with new flavors, feed the treat to your dog in a small amount to see how he reacts to it before distributing an entire treat. Store your homemade dog treats in an airtight container and place them in the freezer. Allow the treat to thaw for 10 – 20 minutes prior to serving to your dog. Treats can last for up to 6 months in the freezer.
