I have never met a pooch that doesn't love a treat or two! My two pups cannot get enough treats, and because I like to know exactly what I am giving my furry loves, I enjoy making all their treats myself! You may think this sounds like a mission and takes a lot of time. Wrong! You can whip up a batch of treats in an hour. I like to make use of whatever I have in the kitchen at the time (doggy safe, of course), and my recipes are not complicated at all.
Back In The Day
Back in the ‘old days’, pets were not as closely regarded as family members as they are today. Today, there are hundreds of pet food brands that offer top quality pet food using top quality ingredients, but it wasn't always like this. Dog treats used to consist of left overs that were not fit for human consumption (read: stale bread, leftover cuts of meat, and moldy vegetables). Thankfully, a young man by the name of James Spratt changed all this when he went on a trip to England and noticed the huge number of stray dogs eating rotten food. The rest is history.
Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats
This recipe is easily a household favorite of ours. It's quick and simple to whip up, and I guarantee you will have all the ingredients in your kitchen!
We hope you enjoy taking time out to make these yummy treats for your furry loves! Oh, and feel free to taste one yourself. They're yummy for humans, too! Don’t give your pup too many treats on a daily basis, no matter how much he pulls his “I want more face”.
