Do you prefer to make vegetarian dog treats? You can make this dog treat recipe vegetarian by using a 1/2 cup of pureed fruits or vegetables in place of the canned meat.
We used an adorable fish shaped ice cube tray for our treats, but you can use a classic plastic ice cube tray instead. Let the tray sit at room temperature for a minute or so to help the treat cubes pop out easier. You can also use small paper cups, like mini muffin liners. Once the treats are frozen you will need to tear away the paper before serving to your dog.
Storing - These frozen dog treats must be kept frozen. They will keep fresh in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Yield - Depending on the size of your cubes, you will be able to make 1 1/2 to 2 full ice cube trays of dog treats.
