All Time Favorite Dog Treat Recipe
Blueberry & Banana

If you're just getting started making homemade dog treats, you probably want a recipe that you know will be a success with your dog. This month we're featuring a visitor favorite:

Blueberry & Banana Dog Treats

Website Visitor Reviews:

"My dogs loved these Blueberry Banana Treats. I made some soft, some crunchier. They liked them better than any treat I've given them. They refused to eat their food hoping for more of them. I also gave them to a few friends with the same reaction. Great recipe and so very, very easy. THANK YOU!"

Jenny from Pennsylvania said:

"This was really easy to whip up and didn't call for any crazy ingredients. My pups were timid at first because they're not used to such natural, healthful snacks, but they quickly gobbled them up! I'll definitely make these again for my dogs and my friends' dogs."

Dana said:

"My 12 year old min pin absolutely loves the blueberry treats with bananas and oats. The ingredients do not upset his stomach at all, which is wonderful. He has one every day. Thank you for a great recipe!!"

Does your dog have a favorite recipe that you're sure other dogs would love, too? Then maybe it's time to consider sharing your treats with local dogs in your area. :)

Dog Treat Baking Tips -
I Want YOUR Feedback!

In true "dog community" style, I got many helpful tips from newsletter subscribers last month. Keep those baking tips, stories and knowledge flowing this way so we can all help each other make the process of baking treats easy and fun. :)

I wanted to share one great baking tip that came from Susan V. She had this to say:

"I've been making your peanut butter oatmeal dog treats for my furbabies for a few years now. They absolutely love them and come get me when the timer dings to tell me they are ready. They can't wait for them to come out of the oven and cool off so they can test the new batch.

I thought I would share my "trick" to make rolling them out quick and easy. I put the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out fairly thin. I then move parchment paper and all over to the cookie sheet, remove the top sheet of parchment and cut the dough into squares with my pizza cutter. My guys told me they don't care what shape the cookies are ;-) I have also found that if I allow my dough to rest for about 10 or 15 minutes after I have mixed it, it gives the whole wheat flour and oats a chance to soak up some of the water and the dough is much less "sticky" when I go to roll it out.

Thanks for your great recipes, Susan V."

My Easy Dog Treat Recipes eBook goes hand in hand with responsible dog ownership. How? Simple, one of the basics in responsible dog care is educating yourself on your dogs health and nutritional needs.
