My son and I recently started watching the newest season of Queer Eye (which we love, by the way), and we were completely smitten with Rahanna Gray, the woman who runs the Philadelphia-based mobile dog grooming company Stylish Pooch.
At one point in her episode, she and Antoni Porowski are making dog treats when one of them notes, “You should never feed your dog something you can’t eat yourself.”
This made me pause and examine what our dogs do and do not eat. Like a lot of dogs, they will happily stuff just about anything in their mouths … and like a lot of dog owners, we don’t want that to happen! I’ve never thought of making our own dog treats before, but after searching online I realized it actually doesn’t have to be that hard.Advertisement
I started looking for different dog treat recipes and ended up finding so many that sound like they’re manageable that it made sense to share them. So without further ado, here are 15 DIY recipes for dog treats that you can make in your own kitchen, often with ingredients you probably already have on hand.
