Sweet Potato Dog Chews 

 

This recipe is a great alternative to buying your dog pig ears to chew on.  The thicker you cut them and the longer they cook, the chewier they become so your dog can enjoy it for longer.  These chews take longer to cook than the other treats, so it’s a great DIY treat to put in the oven before running a few errands. They can also be put in the fridge or freezer for a weeks!

 

Ingredients

2 sweet potatoes

 

Cook time: 3 hours

Peanut Butter and Apple Sauce Cookies

 

These dog treats are quick and easy and most of the ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen! It’s pretty universally known that dogs love peanut butter and my dog loves eating apples so this is perfect for her.  If your dog likes bananas better you can substitute an overly ripe banana for the applesauce.  They also stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks!

 

Ingredients

2 tablespoons plain applesauce
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup rolled oats

 

Cook time: 15-20 min

All of these dog treats are easy to make and make great holiday gifts for all of your pet loving friends! They also make fun DIY activities to do with kids.  Which recipe do you think your dog will like the best?
