While going shopping for treats to give your dog can be overwhelming with all the choices at first, once you look closer and find out how toxic store bought pet food can be it really seems like there aren’t any options at all.
Like us though, our dogs have healthier alternatives and they are usually made best at home. If you are on the hunt for some delicious DIY dog treat recipes that are nutritious and will make your dog’s mouth water, read on.
Blueberry Dog Cookies

I honestly have never met a dog that doesn’t like peanut butter. While my puppy was neutral to it at first, she definitely goes nuts for it now!
Yogurt Peanut Butter

Being a lover of pumpkin and apples, I’m tempted to eat this one!
Found From Proud Dog Mom

Fresh Breath Treat
Found From DogVills
Stinky mouth? No worries! Clean it up with these fresh breath recipes! Also, my personal recommendation for bad breath is to give your dog raw bone marrow. It will clean their teeth and those teeth will shine like no other. Seriously, try it! I am actually JEALOUS of my pup’s teeth. They are so white as if she gets laser whitening every week, but it’s just the power of a raw diet.
Unicorn Dog Bones

Want to keep your pup hip with the unicorn trend? This is how!
Peanut Butter & Coconut Oil

The aesthetic of these treats is just so wonderful.

Cupcakes! I am starting to like pup recipes more than the ones I regularly use for myself.
Apple & Chicken Pup Pops

So simple yet so genius!

These totally remind me of one of those ice creams you could get from the truck as a youngster.
Found From Pop Sugar
Wow! How creamy looking!
Found From Homemade Dog Treats Now
As a vegan, if there is one thing I remember the taste of fondly, it’s salmon.

I think my pup would lose her mind (in a good way) if I gave her these!
If you are like me, you hardly trust any pet companies. They make overpriced toxic foods that shorten the lives of our pets just to make a quick buck. The pet food industry is run by the big brands who have the power to tell you what you should or should not put into your fur baby’s mouth so naturally they are going to trick you into buying their cheaply made products. If you haven’t already, I recommend doing plenty of research into what you feed your pets so that they can live the lives you want them to. Thank you so much for reading and let me know your favorite recipe in the comments!
