Easy Homemade Dog Treats Recipes

So why did I create a website about homemade dog treats?

The Beggin’ Beagle Bakery

I started my own dog treat business several years ago and I wanted to share my story, as well as help others who may be interested in learning how to make homemade dog treats.  My in-laws used to bring homemade dog treats back from Florida every year, and after seeing how much my dog enjoyed them I thought… I can make these myself! This is where I got the idea to start a dog treat business. However, I quickly learned that it wasn’t all that easy.

It wasn’t making the homemade dog treats that I trouble with, that was easy enough. It was all the little things that came up when I started selling my homemade dog treats. For example, how to preserve homemade dog treats, how to package homemade dog treats (That would be shipped), and how to market my dog treat business without spending a fortune. These are just a few of the questions that I had:)  I wish there were a website like About Homemade Dog Treats that I could have referred to when I first started out! After all, I was a school teacher, what did I know about running a homemade dog treat business?

So after being in the dog treat business for nearly a decade, I figured that I could share my expertise with anyone interested in learning about homemade dog treats and perhaps someday starting their own business.

My goal was to create a place dog lovers! My site is full of information and I hope everyone enjoys using my site as much as I did creating! Share an easy homemade dog treats recipe, learn how to make homemade peanut butter dog treats, homemade dog food and even homemade dog cakes! And I’m happy to say that the number of dog treat recipes found on my site continues to grow thanks to all of you!

Healthy Homemade Dog Treats

So what would you rather eat: a savory meal made by one or two people, with freshly purchased, healthy ingredients made in a clean kitchen or bakery; or, a meal that has been mass produced, pumped up with preservatives, and has been touched by more than a few pairs of hands? I think we can agree that the answer to this question is rather obvious.

Just because dogs are a lot less selective in terms of food, this doesn’t mean that they do not have a sense of taste. So, instead of giving your pet factory produced dog treats, why not bake them some delicious healthy homemade dog treats in the comfort of your own kitchen? You can tailor the dog treats to all of your dog’s favorites and your dog will love you for it!

I have been making my dog Hunter homemade dog treats for years, and he has really benefited from me doing so. His coat is shiny, his teeth are clean, he doesn’t stink, and we almost never have to visit the vet! These are all perks of feeding your pet homemade dog food. I am 100% sure that all of the dog treats and meals that I make for my dog are free of harmful preservatives and by-products, which is a great feeling.

Because you will be purchasing and then preparing all of the ingredients that go into your dog treats, you have control over their nutritional value. Baking for your dog is a much healthier alternative to buying the commercially produced pet treats however, I would suggest getting to know what ingredients could be harmful to dogs before you start cooking for your pet.  Check out this video. You do not want to use any ingredients that could be harmful to your pet. Learning as much about homemade dog treats in the beginning will be beneficial to both you and your dog in the end.

Here is the list of dog treat recipes that I talked about earlier. Pick one and start making your pet some healthy snacks today!
