On March 1st 2012, Gunner Fallat was brought into this world! Mike and I celebrated Gunner’s 9th birthday this past Monday. Our sweet boy was spoiled with custom bandanas (use code CARA20 for 20% off), toys and even yummy homemade dog treats made by yours truly. The love that I have for Gunner is indescribable, he is literally just the best dog a girl could ask for. So what better way to my love for him than to make him healthy homemade dog treats!
This post is all about making these easy, healthy, and homemade dog treats for your fur-baby!
When it comes to Gunner, we have to be very careful with what we feed him because his stomach is so sensitive. So I had to make sure that this recipe was clean and clear of toxins and anything else that would potentially effect him.
These cute & easy homemade dog treats can be as big or small as you desire! I prefer to use a small bone shape cookie cutter that can be found here.
Please make sure that you use all natural peanut butter or natural nut butter. Natural nut butters do not contain Xylitol which can be harmful to your pet. The natural peanut butter that I use.
Natural pumpkin pure is incredibly beneficial to your dogs digestive system. Adding pumpkin pure to your dogs daily food and or treats, can help keep your pooch regular!
When I make G-Man these treats, I tend to only make about a dozen and then I freeze the rest of the dough for a later date. Once the treats are done baking and have cooled, I keep them in an air-tight glass container in my refrigerator for about a month. Then, when I want to make another dozen, I will just thaw some of the frozen dough that I stored and bake away!
I hope your doggie enjoys these yummy homemade dog treats just as much as Gunner does!
