105 Homemade Dog Treat Recipes: Healthy & Super-Woof Easy

homemade dog treats

Dogs love their humans, it’s true, but they also love their food. And treats. Just like using food to get to a man’s heart, the same goes for dogs. If a perfect stranger comes up and gives your furbaby a treat, she may not have a problem taking it from them. However, just like our potato chips and candy, dog treats can be unhealthy for your pooch.

How many times have you heard on the news about certain dog treats being recalled due to bacteria, fungi, or even pieces of plastic or metal? You certainly don’t want your dog eating that! Not to mention the price. Dog treats and snacks are expensive too! So, how about making your dog his own treats at home? It can be really easy!

We have listed our most favorite 105 easy dog treat recipes here for you. Enjoy!
