Have you ever made homemade treats for your dog before? Homemade treats can be the better option since you know exactly what your dog is eating. Store bought treats are often made from fillers and byproducts as opposed to natural and high quality ingredients. By creating your own treats at home, you will be able to provide your dog with a healthy snack that is not only nutritious, but is also free of unhealthy additives.
Since today is National Dog Biscuit Day, we wanted to provide you with some ideas on what to feed your pup so you can celebrate this day...the right way!
Making your own treats allows you to control what goes into the recipe. You can ensure that your pet is getting a nutritious and wholesome snack, while also tailoring your dog treat recipes to your dog’s taste preferences as well as cater to any dietary restrictions.
What to Put in the Dog Biscuits
Think about your pet and their likes and dislikes. As humans, we eat what tastes good to us, so think about your pet in the same way as you would yourself: what are his favorite flavors? It’s important to use the most healthy ingredients when preparing the treats, as we want to reward our dog, not make them sick.
Here are the top 5 ingredients to use in your dog biscuit making. And it’s probably safe to say to not use all of these together.
Pieces of Meat
Vegetables (no onions)
Fruit (no grapes or raisins)
When preparing homemade dog treats, make sure you take into account any allergies that your pet has to specific ingredients, as you will want to avoid those. 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.
