Gourmet Dog Treats
Made at Home for Less!

Gourmet dog treats? It may not seem like these three words go together, but they do!

You may be thinking if the word gourmet is used in a recipe then it must mean that it is complicated or hard. Well, it doesn't have to be! Baking a gourmet cookie for your dog can be easy. You just need to know a few tips and techniques.

So what makes a dog biscuit gourmet? The same thing that makes people food gourmet:

gourmet dog treats

  • ingredients of very high quality
  • uncommon food combinations
  • appearance given extra effort, creativity or artful touches

If your dog is a treat foodie, this is just what he's been waiting for. Some of the recipes you can expect to find use unusual ingredients. These may include salmon, venison or liver. Or, on the sweeter side, you'll find dog treat recipes for dessert cannolis, lollipops and carob truffles.

Another thing that makes a dog treat gourmet is the dog treat icing and the technique used to apply it. We will explore different techniques and styles of application, and bring the best back to you.

There are several things to keep in mind when baking and serving your dog a gourmet treat:

  1. Sugar -These treats can be higher in sugar content, so you would want to limit the amount eaten at one time.

  2. Storage -Often they are more delicate than everyday dog biscuits. You will want to store them like you would other perishable baked goods (covered tightly on the counter, or if you live in a warmer climate, in the refrigerator). You also may be able to freeze certain treats for later enjoyment.

  3. Experience -Some of the recipes require a more experienced baker. If you are using ingredients of high quality (and possibly high price), you might want to consider testing your skill on one of the easy dog treat recipes until you get the hang of it.

Baking gourmet dog treats doesn't have to be difficult. Choose ingredients of unsurpassed quality, make them with love, and maybe top with some dog treat icing! Your little one may become refined and start raising a pinky paw toe while enjoying her homemade dog treats!
