Homemade Treats (Even Prescription Treats) Made Easy

Make Your Dog Some Special Treats This Season!

I often get asked what treats I use when I am dog training.  My favorite Treats are ones that I can control what ingredients are going into them.  I know dogs shouldn't have garlic, onions, sugar substitutes, nutmeg, coffee, macadamia nuts, alcohol and many other things.  If you have questions please do your research with ASPCA poison control.

I keep my treats simple, low fat, low salt and my dog’s think they are yummy.

For your Christmas Challenge today, cook your dog a delectable treat and review some of the training ideas from earlier in the week.


My dogs LOVE liver treats, they are probably their ultimate favorite.  If you have a food dehydrator it provides the best results.  I boil the liver first, then I either dehydrate it or I bake it at 400 until the moisture is gone.  I don’t add anything extra, liver by itself is good enough!


I do the exact same thing with chicken breast.  I boil it first and then I cut it up and bake  it at 400 or dehydrate it until most of the moisture is gone, this makes it more palatable for me to have in my hand!

Prescription Treats

My oldest dog is on a prescription food.  He is unable to eat snacks or treats and often misses that feeling of reward.  My only option is to make treats for him from his food.

I take canned dog food, add some water to make it slightly more manageable, and then I press it into a pan and bake it at 400 until it is a little toasty and firm.

If your dog is on a prescription diet, DO NOT add any components or ingredients to the treats, your dog’s health could be at risk if you do so.

And, in the spirit of the season, Christmas Cookies!

  • 2  ½ cups of whole wheat flour

    He Won't Be Able to Wait to Give Them a Try!

  • ¾ cup of nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 cube of beef or chicken bouillon cube (find one with low salt)
  • ¾ cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp of brown sugar

Dissolve bouillon in water then combine other ingredients until it forms a dough.  Roll out dough ¼ inch and use cookie cutter if desired, then cook at 300 for about 30 minutes.  Let cool and let him enjoy!
