Wholesome and healthy Pumpkin-Peanut Butter Treats

Which dog owner does not know that? Just as you think about giving your dearest and most loyal friend doggie treats, the pup is already standing next to you and begs.

Since Max and Cooper give us such joy and gratitude, I wanted to do something special. Since I am concerned about their health and well being, I wondered if there are alternatives to store bought dog treats. So I’ve been thinking, I could bake these healthy treats myself at home at a fraction of the cost.

Dog Max and Cooper

Our faithful canine friends Max (left) and Cooper won’t be able to help me with the baking. But I can be sure of one thing, they will sit there and stare at me from the start preparing their treats

A Testimonial to healthy anal glands in dogs: Not to get too much into details, my picky eater Cooper had gastrointestinal problems that caused anal issues. Like so many smaller breeds, he was scooting on the carpet and needed expensive chewy pills and a monthly manual expression that impacted his anal sacs. The scooting and discomfort has now stopped with my healthy and wholesome treats that he eats three times a day.

When buying Peanut Butter, please be aware and use Xylitol free brands

My two dogs know exactly when I am baking something for them. I always make two patches that last for about a month for our 2 dogs. I store them airtight, but they also can be frozen.

Liver dog treats

Make cut-outs and shaped treats?

I’m actually rather practical, preferring cutting squares with the Pizza roller – but who can resist shapes of Dog bones, Santas, or Valentine hearts? So please go ahead! I certainly tried and found that it’s more for the patient soul. Handling sticky dough and fidgety shapes would put home bakers to their limits.
