As I mentioned earlier, I have decided to share some of the best homemade dog treats recipes that I have been using for years. I personally came up with each of these dog treats recipes in the comfort of my own kitchen and they are one of the reasons why my dog treat business has done so well. I look forward to sharing these recipes with you and I hope that your dog enjoys them as much I as mine does!
Having started my dog treat business several years ago, I have been through the trials and tribulations of coming up with healthy dog treat recipes that both dogs and their owners would love. I found that using all natural ingredients when making homemade dog treats always resulted in delicious snacks that pet owners felt good about giving their pets.
This recipe below is for some tasty snacks called “Beagle Bites.” These treats are by far one of the best sellers at the bakery and I find that the majority of my customers order them several times a year. The nice thing about this recipe is that once you have the dough, you can actually make these treats in a variety of shapes. Because my dog bakery is called “The Beggin’ Beagle Bakery” I make them in the shape of a beagle and they have become the most notable treats at the bakery.
I also use this recipe to make all different holiday treats. They have a sweetness to them that dogs just love and they make great gifts so the holidays are a great time to make them.
