Why only healthy dog treats? Because giving unhealthy snacks to our dogs can cause serious health problems to them. It’s that simple! Healthy doesn't mean tasteless of course... You probably already have lots of stuff in your cupboard and fridge that would make a perfectly healthy and yummy treat for your dog!
We all know that dogs love treats and they would do almost ANYTHING to get one! Well, it seems that their owners love them too! I don't mean eating the treats of course. But, I'm sure we all LOVE the excitement in our dog's face waiting for a cookie!
That's the main reason why people buy dog treats in every possible flavor, shape and fancy package wishing to satisfy their little furry friends.
However, is this really our best option? It is common knowledge that the majority of ready-made food (human and dog food) is full of preservatives, additives and other dangerous chemicals.
Thinking about making your own homemade treats? Are you looking for the perfect healthy dog treat recipe for easy dog treats for everyday or gourmet dog treats for special occasions? Easy to make, inexpensive and - most important of all - irresistible to your dog?
Here you'll find everything you're looking for! Great recipes with ingredients you choose.
Healthy dog treats EVERYONE can make. Most of them can be done in less than 15 minutes!
Before you begin making your own treats it's important to underline a few basics things you must know when giving them to your dog.
First of all, GIVE IN MODERATION.
This is very important. Some dog biscuits can be high calorie treats but we tend to ignore that because they are small and dogs devour them in seconds! One cookie is not a problem of course.
The Question Is:
Can You Give Your Dog Just One?
In some recipes you'll see ingredients
like milk, oil, liver or a teaspoon of garlic. That doesn't mean it's
OK to give a cup of milk to your dog. These ingredients make your treats
taste better and are safe to use in small amounts. But they can cause
stomach upsets and other health problems if given in excess or too
often. Click to see the list of all the dangerous foods for dogs you should NEVER use for your healthy dog treats
