Easy-to-make recipes for dog treats include treats made with pumpkin, peanut butter and applesauce, as well as various simple ingredients. A healthy trail mix treat is made by combining leftover foods such as meat, vegetables and fruit. Owners must be cautious to avoid using foods harmful to dogs.
Prepare a simple trail mix by cutting meat such as chicken, beef or turkey into 1/2-inch pieces, and placing it on a baking tray along with pieces of potato, vegetables and fruit. Be sure to rinse any seasoning off of meat before using, and do not include onions, grapes or raisins. Bake the trail mix until it is dry, or use a food dehydrator. Another simple treat combines vanilla yogurt with peanut butter, and this treat is made by first melting the peanut butter, and then mixing it with the yogurt. Pour the peanut butter mixture into paper cupcake wrappers and freeze.
Dog owners can make savory homemade dog biscuits. To make meat-flavored dog biscuits combine flour with hot water, egg and beef, or chicken bouillon granules, mixing to form a dough. Knead and roll the dough, and then use a shaped cutter to create biscuits. To make peanut butter dog biscuits, combine peanut butter with wheat flour, oats and other ingredients. Bake dog biscuits until they are lightly browned.
