As a dog trainer and mom, I always want to keep treats as healthy and high value as possible. Having a dog like Theo, my 4-year-old Mastiff is quite a challenge for me. You constantly have to watch for this guys weight and make train fun and yummy at the same time.
Some of the other benefits of making your own homemade dog treats include:
•You know all the ingredients included in your dog’s treats
•You can easily adjust the portion size
•They’ll make your kitchen smell awesome
•They’re a great way to practice your baking skills
•Your dog will getting an extra special treat made by you
•You’ll have a nice supply of training treats on hand
▪️ 2 cups of flour
▪️1/2 cup of peanut butter
▪️ 1/4 cup of water
▪️Preheat your oven to 350 F.
▪️Mix together your flourhr, peanut butter, and eggs in a large bowl until slightly combined.
▪️Add a little bit of water (approx. One Tbsp) at a time until the mixture is wet enough to roll as dough
▪️Rollout out on the bakery mold and put it in the fridge for few minutes to get the treats shape solid.
▪️Place your treats onto your baking sheet and cook in preheated oven for 20 minutes
If you’re not careful, treats can add a substantial amount of calories to your dog’s otherwise normal, healthy diet.
Don’t let treats make up more than 10 percent of your dog’s diet.
Don’t let him fill up on dog treats before meals. If you take positive reinforcement training classes with your dog, cut back his dinner portion on class days, when you know you will be feeding your pup extra treats.
