Treat your four legged friend to a healthy homemade dog treat.

My husband and I recently got a new puppy who is about 8 months old. Dog treats are expensive and full of preservatives. It’s very easy to make homemade dog treats.

Homemade Dog Treats

In my search for an easy recipe I came across one for Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dog Treats from Lifetime with dogs.

This recipe is super simple and takes just a few ingredients. You probably have the ingredients for this on hand in your kitchen pantry. The only thing I had to purchase was the dog bone shaped cookie cutter. You can use any cookie cutter you wish though.  You can get dog bone shaped cookie cutters on Amazon. They are cute but not needed.

I love this recipe because it’s easy, and healthy. My puppy seems to have a sensitive stomach so we have to watch what he eats. He seems to love tissues though…ewwww.

My dog is a smaller 8 month old Pug/Beagle/Spaniel mix. I tried these treats out on my friends dog that is a Pit Bull/Lab mix. Both dogs loved these treats. My friends dog loved them so much, I had to give them the recipe to make her more.

Here are some pictures of my cute puppy enjoying his delicious treats:

    My pup loves tissues also! What’s up with that? These look very easy to make, too!

      They are extremely easy to make. I’ve made them twice now and my dog gets excited when I reach for the cookie jar.

      Your dog will love them! My puppy loves peanut butter too but it’s cruel to give to them straight.
