It can be difficult to find dog treats that are healthy, natural and don’t have a bad smell to them. We have put together our list of a few different dog treats for you to try making yourself at home. Your dog is guaranteed to love them as much as any store-bought treats.

Spinach, Carrot and Courgette Biscuits

You will need:

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the peanut butter and eggs until well-combined.
  3. Gradually add the oats and 2 1/2 cups of flour, beating just until incorporated. Add an additional 1/4 cup flour at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky. Add carrot, courgette and spinach, beating just until incorporated.
  4. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Place into oven and bake until the edges are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  6. Let cool completely and store in an air tight container.

Chicken and Rice Biscuits

You will need:

  • Cookie cutters
  • 6oz boneless chicken breast (grilled or boiled, and cooled)
  • 1/2 cup cooked and cooled rice
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1 egg

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Combine chicken, rice and chicken stock in a mini food processor or blender and pulse until a paste forms.
  3. Add the flour, salt, egg and chicken paste into a bowl and mix well.
  4. Sprinkle a little flour on a flat surface and knead the dough until it’s no longer sticky; then roll it out with a rolling pin about 1/2 inch thick.
  5. Cut out shapes and place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. This recipe yields approximately 32 biscuits using a 3.5″ cookie cutter.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes until light brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before serving.
