Top 10 Recipes for Homemade Dog Treats

The other week we took a look at the “Top 10 Homemade treats for cats“, so I thought it would be best to even the animal see-saw out. The World of homemade dog treats is massive compared to the cats treats, maybe because dogs will mostly eat anything. But there is a big difference between the things dogs like to eat and the things they should, so all these treats are healthy and made especially for them…

  1. Well it has to be worth a go right! I have to be honest and say I did make some of number 5 for my dog last weekend, sadly he didn’t like them, but I did!

  2. Russell! You just paid for the price of my subscription to your blog. Oh, I forgot–you don’t charge. We have been paying about $13 for a lb. of the chicken-jerky treats for YEARS. I just followed the recipe, and got about the same amount of jerky by processing about $3.50 worth of boneless chicken breast. This is going to save us many $$ from now on.

  3. Liver and cranberry brownies…there’s a combination I hadn’t ever thought of. This is different from your usual display of deliciousness Russell. There will be some very lucky dogs out there after their owners read this post!

  4. Oh yeah, nasty Labradors, mine does that as well. Gotta eat gotta eat…
    Some of these treats look pretty good.

  5. Toxic schmoxic. We are bombarded, day and night, with health ‘scares.’ the person ‘allergic’ to the 21st century, living her life in a bubble. Which is made of plastic, as are the nasal tubesd feeding ‘pure oxygen’ to her ‘labouring lungs.’ Gimme a break. In the late 1800s, life expectancy in the UK was about 60s. Now? Even if you’re a man, it’s about 78. We must be getting something right. Dogs/cats? They live on a reduced lifetime anyway. My old cat loved chilli, bolognaise, anything with onions and, critically garlic. Garlic is very very rich in thiosulphates. My cat died at 19. Not a bad innings for an animal ‘poisoned by very small amounts on a regular basis.’ I’m not having a go at you, I just bitterly resent bad science masquerading ad health warnings, as my blog will tell you

  6. Now you break it down it doesn’t make sense. But toxic is toxic, who knows what it is doing to the dog even in very small doses. But I know what you mean about the labradors, my old one would eat until it was sick, then eat that as well!

  7. Onions toxic to dogs as per #9? Oh please. Yes thiosulphates (not thiosulphate in the singular) are toxic, But for dogs the acute toxic dose is about 800g of onions, Assume an average medium sized dog weighs 40 lbs, or about 18 kg. You as a human weigh, if you’r e reasonably sized, about 80 kg, maybe 90. So five times the weight of an average dog. I’ll bet if you ate 4 kg of onions at one sitting, you be pretty poorly too. Just as your dog might be if you are lax enough to allow it to eat 5% of its own bodyweight in onions. Only labradors are that greedy.
