Homemade Winter Treats for Your Dogs

As the weather is getting cooler, and the holidays are rapidly approaching, we find ourselves thinking more and more about food. Wonderful roasted turkey, stuffing, and scrummy side dishes all come to mind. It is also the perfect time of year to make gifts of food for friends and family. That includes your canine family members. As we write about all things, “Pets”, Indian Land Pet Sitting thought we would share some ideas and products to help you make some tasty treats for the dogs in your family.

The first thing that comes to mind, as we make these a few times a month are dehydrated chicken treats. We buy organic chicken breasts when they go on sale at our local Sprouts store. Then we, give them a slight freeze, slice them up and throw them in the dehydrator overnight. Our dogs wake us up early, on what we call, “Hot Chicken” mornings. They can smell the chicken even when we put the dehydrator out on the screened porch. After they get their morning treat, we put the hydrated chicken in Ziploc bags and store in the refrigerator. We also recommend the following Mandoline for slicing and the dehydrator that we use.

Another wonderful treat to make for your dogs are Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats. What dog doesn't love the flavor of pumpkin and peanut butter? AllRecipes is one of our favorite websites for human and canine recipes. Click on the link or the photo for the recipe.

We know some of our readers live in climates that are warm all year round. The holidays included. For those friends, or arctic dogs like ours we are including an easy, three ingredient frozen dog treat recipe from Damn Delicious to chill them out. Also a link to our favorite BPA free Dog Paw molds from Le Dogue which can be found on Chewy.

We also love these Ann Clark, made in the U.S.A. dog themed cookie cutters! They are great for rolled out dough. You can find them here, cookie cutters.
