These Homemade Dog Treats are full of organic ingredients like pumpkin, peanut butter, bacon, applesauce, yogurt and require NO baking! Your fur baby will surely go nuts for these healthy, homemade treats!
Everybody, say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Tedster! Yesterday was his birthday, and I’m thinkin’ he had a really great day.
Full of pumpkin, peanut butter, and just a teeny tiny touch of b.a.c.o.n., Teddy went absolutely nuts for these.
The best part for me? They’re super super quick and easy to make, totally organic, and leftovers can be stored in the fridge/freezer to be enjoyed later!
But most importantly, they’re Teddy approved!
For those of you that don’t know, Teddy, official name Theodore Charles Debth, is our 70 pound Golden Retriever who we got as a puppy when we were living in Seattle.
We’re absolutely obsessed with him and over the years have maybe given him one too many nicknames…
Bear. . .
and so on.
He’s one of the fam and has brought us so much joy, and honestly, is more than half the reason we get outside to exercise everyday and, um, how we’ve made most of our friends. 😉
Before SMTY started, my full time job was training Teddy and we’d spend hours every day working on sit, stay, come, etc. Training was the ONLY time Teddy ever got “people food” and that was because we wanted to give him high value treats for working so hard!
When he did get “people food” we made sure they were all high quality organic vet approved foods, because we’re those people, and love him maybe a little too much <– like that’s even possible. ♡
Because it’s his THIRD birthday, we’re breaking the rules juuuuust a bit, and letting him go nuts over these Homemade Dog Treats.
Simply mix together organic pumpkin puree, applesauce, peanut butter, and plain yogurt in a large bowl. Stir in cooked and crumbled bacon and old fashioned oats, roll ’em up (I used this cookie scoop for uniform treats), and you’re done!
Now. I took one for the team and gave these a try. . .
Don’t eat these. Because we’re using un-salted, no sugar added, all organic ingredients, they just don’t taste good to us humans.
Teddy on the other hand couldn’t get enough.
Let’s just say, I definitely had another shadow that day.
Healthy. Easy. Puppy approved. These Homemade Dog Treats are sure to please!
