Homemade Love for Your Favourite Pup

 
 

Our dogs hold a huge place in our hearts – why not show them a little extra love this Valentine’s Day! We’ve put together some homemade treat and toy ideas that you can create to surprise your pup.

Homemade Dog Treats

Homemade dog treats have so many benefits to them. One, your pup will love the variety and two, you know exactly what ingredients are going into the food you’re feeding your best friend.

Peanut Butter and Banana Training Treats

Ingredients:
1 cup gluten-free flour or whole wheat flour
½ cup peanut butter
1 banana

Instructions:
1. Mash the banana and mix in with the peanut butter in a large bowl.
2. Add in the flour and mix in thoroughly.
3. Sprinkle flour on your workstation and roll out dough (1/4 inch thick).
4. Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C) and prepare baking sheet.
5. Use cookie cutter for desired shape.
6. Place on baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes. Look for golden brown edges.

Peanut Butter Bacon Donuts

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/3 cup coconut oil
½ cup peanut butter
2 eggs
Topping:
Greek yogurt
Bacon bits

Instructions:
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except yogurt and bacon bits). You can mix with a spoon or use your hands (super fun for kids!). Mix until a dough forms.
3. Use your hands to press the dough into the donut pan. Fill each donut cavity and press firmly to ensure everything sticks together (it won’t rise, so you should make sure each space is tightly packed).
4. Bake in your preheated oven at 375 degrees for approximately 14 mins or until cooked completely.
5. Allow to cool, then carefully remove the donuts from the pan.

Bacon Cheddar Treats

Ingredients:
4 strips bacon, cooked crispy
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 ½ cup milled oatmeal
2 large eggs

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine bacon, cheese, and oatmeal in mixing bowl. Allow mixer to break bacon and cheese up into little bits.
3. Add eggs to the dry mixture to form a thick sticky dough.
4. Dust surface of counter with additional milled oatmeal, to prevent sticking.
5. Roll dough out to approximately 1/4 of an inch. Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes.
6. Bake treats on a parchment paper lined baking tray for approximately 20 minutes (slightly longer if treats are larger). Treats will be a pale-ish brown when they’re ready.
7. Allow to cool completely before feeding to your pet.

Homemade Dog Toys

We all have old items hanging around our home that could easier be turned into dog toys.

• Wrap a bottle in a t-shirt
• Cut open a tennis ball and add treats inside
• Braid strips of old shirts or towels
• Place tennis balls in an old muffin tin – they have to work to get the balls out
