Homemade treats

I didn't see a thread about this, if I missed please let me know.

I wanted to get a list of homemade treats you give/make for your pups. We had a client come to the clinic today and she has started feeding her dog homemade cooked food. I know some about cooked and raw diets but not a lot.
The doctor talked to her about ensuring they feed the proper balance and such (We do not recommend homemade diets but we support our clients who choose to feed it).
I wanted to get her a list of treat options she can make for her dog. Right now they only make jerky but she would really like a variety.
Any help you guys give would be great thanks in advance!

I make dehydrated fruits and veggies for us. I share almost all of it with the dogs. My guys love dried banana chips and shredded coconut! I do alot of dried sweet potatoes for the dogs as well.

My dogs love whole Carob pods, (I have around 50 trees on my land so I do not have to buy them) Somehow they manage to eat the outer shell but spit out the small pips, it is the most natural way for them to get chocie goodness safely.

I make Chocie biscuits using Carob flour (ground up carob pods) and wholemeal flour, for the shortening I use Lard, (pig grease). I do not add any sugar.

I make pumpkin/peanut butter and liver treats using wheat flour but plan on trying it with rice flour next time. She can boil any meat and cut into small pieces. I boil chicken gizzards, beef heart, pig tounge and pig heart a good bit. For a high value I might broil some cuts of beef like London broil. I put peanut butter in food tubes. Sometimes I use baby carrrots just bite into smaller pieces and give.


What would I do without them?

I make my own treats:

2 1/2 C Whole Wheat White Flour
2 eggs
2/3 C canned pumpkin (organic)
2/3 C p-nut butter (I use natural and no salt, just peanuts)
Everything in the bowl and mix, roll out and cut, I use a pizza cutter and cut about 1 in square. Bake for about 23 minutes, Lexi likes them crunchy.

With enough thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I boil organ meat and cut it in small pieces. I also use cheese and carrots. Please note thought that the smell of boiled porc kidneys (the most recent that I have) is not very pleasant to the human nose, but is very much high value for dogs... haha, the things I do for my dog .

hmmm.... somewhere there was a sticky where we posted lots and lots of recipes for homemade treats... can't find it right now, but here is one I found in the DT Archives - DT Educational Archive - Doberman Forum : Doberman Breed Dog Forums ... scroll down to recipes. Darkevs always knows where these things are hiding - I'll PM her and ask her to post here for you.

I make our dogs' "wet food" that we add to their kibble for interest, variety... they love it. I just basically make soups/stews using poultry, organ meats, beef - whatever is on sale, or whatever we eat that has leftovers (especially chicken - I simmer the carcass to make a nice broth, with carrots, celery, other veggies, maybe an apple, yam, potato, whatever... then I remove the carcass to cool, so I can strip all remaining meat off it, and add rice, oats, millet, barley to the broth. I return the meat, all cut up (or I throw the meat and veggies in the food processor to be lazy) to the pot, stir well, and put in containers in freezer - voila - home-made "canned" food.

Treats are very easy, really --- dogs are not fussy or judgmental - I don't like to use much wheat, soy or corn (occasionally kernal corn as a treat, since it's sweet) - so I usually use rice/buckwheat/potato/oat flours, sometimes others, and I just "play" with the mixture - I might put some butter in (my guys are crazy for butter), an egg, some yogurt or sour cream, some grated cheese or peanut butter, half a can of plain pumpkin.... and I add a can or more of beef or chicken broth, to get the consistency I want for baking (I like it to be kind of like loose peanut butter, or maybe like oatmeal - easy to spread out on cookie sheets. I bake the goop at about 350 for about 15 - 20 minutes, then I lower the heat to about 250, and let it bake/dehydrate until it is fairly crisp. I'm not fancy and don't stand on ceremony, so I let the sheets cool, and then I just break the sheets into pieces and store them in ziploc bags in the fridge or freezer.

(PS - there are lots of dog recipe books, and also a lot of stuff you can find online, if you prefer formal recipes.)

I've made home-made biscuits before. They were pretty simple including 4-6 ingredients. I don't have any specific recipes but last time I made things I just looked up "home made dog treats." It's fun and, so far, my dogs have loved all of them.



No dog is at fault for being born into this world.

Resurrecting an old thread because I'm trying my hand at some homemade doggy muffins. My little dog can't handle grains or poultry so I'm trying some grain-free poultry product free muffins. This will be my first attempt so I hope they like them and I didn't really keep track of amounts. If it's a success I'll pay better attention next time. I used the nut flours to substitute for a traditional grain flour. I used peanut butter and banana as a binding agent to substitute for the egg.

Grain-free poultry free doggy muffins

Preheat oven to 375.

1 4.25 oz jar just sweet potatoes baby food
2 2.5 oz jars beef and beef broth baby food
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 banana
3 tbs peanut butter
Bacon bits (maybe half a cup maybe more)
Coconut/almond flour blend.- I used up my almond flour which was about 3/4 cup, added coconut flour until it took on a thick cake batter texture.

Blend well.

I rolled the batter into small balls and used mini-cupcake liners so they would be the right size for dog treats.

Bake for 15-25 minutes until they are slightly spongy.

I plan on keeping them in the freezer in ziploc bag.

Edited to add that it made 36 mini-muffins.


You can't out stubborn me. I had a Shetland pony as a child.

It's nothing fancy, but man tali LOVES liver. Super smelly, lots of taste.

I buy liver, cut it into strips, oven bake it slowly, then cut it into small pieces. Gross, id never eat it - but she sure loves it.
