Recipes for Pet Treats

Your dog will love this peanut butter dog treat recipe. Making your own recipes for pet treats is easy and healthy. From peanut butter dog treats to gourmet dog treat recipes; your dog will eat well.

There is a lot of demand for gourmet dog treats these days. But why pay $15.00 for a small bag of treats when you can make your own for a fraction of the price, and with healthier ingredients. Peanut butter dog treats are something that no dog can resist, and the following is an excellent recipe that we use a lot.

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe: Peanut Butter Dog Treats

  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 cups chunky peanut butter
  • 1pkg yeast
  • ½ lukewarm water
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 ½ cups white flour
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup corn meal

Mix the potatoes, milk, chicken stock and peanut butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then pour into a bowl (heat proof) and let cool to room temperature. Dissolve yeast in the warm water and add to peanut butter mix. Lightly whisk the three eggs and add to peanut butter mix.

Gradually, blend into the mix the whole wheat and white flours and corn meal. Once well mixed, knead well. Roll out dough to 1/2" thickness and cut into shapes. Place on a greased cooking sheet. Score deeply with a knife and bake for 45 mins at 300 degree. Depending on the size of the shapes, you should be able to yield 6 dozen medium biscuits.

Recipes for Pet Treats: Why Make Your Own?

When learning how to make gourmet dog treats, it's important to remember that it can be fun, save you some money, and provide your dog with healthier and more nutritious treats (than the commercial variety).

Find out what your dog likes and doesn’t. There are so many different variations on recipes that your dog may like more than others.

And don’t be afraid to adapt recipes for pet treats or develop your own recipes from scratch. This peanut butter dog treat recipe is just a base, you could also use cheese (or even cheese whiz) instead of the peanut butter for example.

Your Dog's Health and Gourmet Dog Treats

As dog get older, they suffer from the same muscle aches, joint pains and arthritis that we do. The type of food you feed your dog can help with those aches and pains.

When you look for recipes for dog treats, try to find recipes that provide extra nutrition (calcium for example). If not, then add supplements to the recipe. Check with your veterinarian to see what the recommendation is, our dog's vet recommends glucosomine and we make sure that our seven year old Boxer/Bulldog cross, Vega, gets a daily supplement in her treats.

Peanut butter provides natural peanut oil in the recipe which can help with muscle aches and pains. Another herbal remedy for aches and pains and soreness that we recommend is PetAlive Muscle and Joint Support Formula. This supplement treats symptoms, relieves pain and reduces stiffness of arthritis, rheumatism and degenerative joint disease in pets.

Muscle and Joint Support promotes muscle, joint and bone health; as well as supports mobility and flexibility. This product contains Glucosamine, Lecithin, Devil’s Claw and other natural ingredients.
