11 Easy Homemade Dog Treats You Can Make In 15 Minutes Or Less

Homemade dog treats are undeniably so much yummier and healthier for our pets than the store-bought kind.

Just like any packaged food you find in the grocery store, the longer the shelf life of a food, the more preservatives and other unpronounceable ingredients are in it with the potential to cause allergies.

We know our pets deserve better than that, which is why I felt inspired to compile this great list of healthy dog treat recipes.

But before we get to the recipes, here’s another little story of inspiration…

I remember a treat-related incident when I was dog-sitting for my sister’s pet Yorkie, Milo, and we drove through a coffee stand. The barista thought Milo was adorable of course and handed me a bone-shaped dog treat that honestly looked like a piece of pink chalk.

I offered it to him and he gave it a sniff and scoffed at it never to eat it thereafter. Perhaps he could smell that this treat wasn’t quite right or perhaps he just doesn’t like taking “candy” from strangers.

Now, I will say that Milo is used to eating real, unprocessed foods as his mommy has a homemade dog food recipe that she cooks a big batch of each week.

Either way though, can you blame him for not wanting to eat the unappetizing, store-bought dog treat?

Understandably, not all of us have the time to dedicate to making our pets such delicious, homemade dog treats or food.

But if you have just 15 minutes out of your day, you can whip up one of these 11 easy dog treat recipes with every day common foods you probably already have in your pantry.

  1. I would be interested in knowing your sister’s homemade dog food recipe if you are able to share. With all the pet food recalls and scary things in dog food know it may be best to do homemade.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Patty,
      The recipe that my sister makes for her Yorkie is pretty simple: Cook fresh ground meat in a pan (you don’t want to add salt or oil to this). After the meat is cooked add frozen vegetables to the pan including carrots, peas, broccoli, cauliflower and add some water. Put the lid on the pan, bring to a boil, then turn down to simmer and steam the veggies (about 10 min). Drain the water. Store in portion sizes in the freezer and thaw in fridge as needed. Microwave to serve. She also mixes in some dry food upon serving sometimes. Make sure you also know which human foods are safe for dogs when making your own. Here are some good resources and another recipe:
