How to Make Dog Treats at Home

Imade these Homemade Dog Treats with peanut butter, but you could substitute other pet friendly flavors. Sweet potato or pumpkin would make great substitutions!

The dough for these dog biscuits is very firm and sticky, but don’t let that scare you! You’re making it right! I rolled my dough to about half an inch thick before cutting out the shapes, and they turned out great.

The dough only rises slightly, so you can cut out almost any shape and it will hold.

Customized Dog Cookie Cutter

I chose some small Christmas shapes as well as my adorable “Scout” cookie cutter from Etsy. You can find it HERE. Scout was so excited to eat her homemade peanut butter dog treats!

The same company on Etsy makes customized Dog Cookie Cutters with all sorts of breeds. You know you need one.

Having a cute cookie cutter for your homemade dog treats is fun but not necessary. You can always just make traditional “cookies” with any cutter you have at home or even the bottom of a cup to make round cookies.

Is peanut butter safe for dogs?

There has been some discussion on whether or not peanut butter is safe for dogs. I always do research before even thinking about feeding Scout something that could be toxic…she’s my girl!!

Peanut butter is actually a healthy food for dogs, containing vitamins and healthy fats. As always, moderation is key. Dogs can be allergic to things just like people.

If you feel uncomfortable using peanut butter, other great alternatives would be pumpkin or sweet potato. Let me know if you have questions!

Can you use all purpose flour in peanut butter dog treat recipes?

Yes, you can. Just like the answer about peanut butter above, some dogs can be allergic to things like gluten found in regular flour.

Whole wheat flour can have some more nutrients which is always great, or you can use an alternative flour like coconut flour.

I always recommend letting your dog sample a small amount before giving them lots of treats, because dogs can be allergic to anything, just like people!

How long will Homemade Dog Treats keep?

It’s best to seal these Dog Treats in an airtight container and store in the fridge. They will stay good in the fridge for up to 2 months, or you can freeze them for up to 8 months!

This homemade dog treats recipe is awesome to make in bulk and reward your pup for great behavior or for just being themselves from time to time. They do a lot for us and they deserve it!

Tips!

  • Some dogs are allergic to flour/wheat. If you want to make these wheat free, you can use rice flour of coconut flour as a replacement. These alternate flours will work, but might change the consistency a bit. Thanks so much to the readers who wrote it about this!
  • I have heard that some peanut butter brands are including xylitol to cut the sugar in their peanut butter. DO NOT USE any peanut butter containing xylitol as it is toxic to dogs. Just check for natural peanut butter and check the ingredients. Muah!

Homemade Dog Treats your dog will love

I am quite aware that I’ve included too many pictures but HOW CAN I NOT when Scout was being such a good model. And how she was practicing this amount of self control is beyond me.

She was richly rewarded in lots of Peanut Butter Dog Treats and lucky for her, I will be making these again and again and again.

Becky’s tips

  • Typically when you are using a royal frosting for cookies, you will make two different types of frosting consistency- a thicker frosting for the outline, and a thinner frosting to flood the inside with. You don’t have to do this but this is what you can do if you would like to go the extra mile for your furry friend.
  • With the thicker frosting, create the outline of your design and wait for it to dry for about 10 minutes. When you make the thicker frosting, you probably only need 2-3 Tablespoons of water. The important thing is that it is thick enough to hold its shape, but thin enough that you can squeeze it through a piping tip.
  • Fill in the outline with the thinner frosting and smooth it out with the tip of your finger. When you make the thin frosting, you will need 3-4 Tablespoons of water, and maybe more depending on how smooth of a finish you would like to have.
  • Some dogs are allergic to flour/wheat. If you want to make these wheat free, you can use rice flour of coconut flour as a replacement. These alternate flours will work, but might change the consistency a bit. Thanks so much to the readers who wrote it about this!
  • Some peanut butter brands are including xylitol to cut the sugar in their peanut butter. DO NOT USE any peanut butter containing xylitol as it is toxic to dogs. Just check for natural peanut butter and check the ingredients. Muah
