As any dog owner knows, our four-legged friends can be the final piece of any family’s puzzle. Their unconditional love, affection, and loyalty are just some of their most redeeming qualities. We like to reward our guests at the Happy Home Hotel for Dogs for their good behavior and simply show them how much we care, by making homemade dog treats as a great way to surprise your dog with something special. Best of all, our recipes feature better-for-you, everyday ingredients that even humans can eat—not that we’d recommend you do, though.
An instant favorite is our classic Homemade Dog Biscuits. Using only seven ingredients, this recipe makes a whopping five dozen, meaning you can fill your pup’s cookie jar in one go. The dough consists of flour, wheat germ, brewer’s yeast, salt, and canola oil and is baked in a 400-degree oven before getting brushed with low-sodium chicken stock. The final treats will have your dog’s nose working overtime. We also go so far as to cut them into the shape of a bone, but circles, squares, or any other cutters you have on hand work for these homemade treats.
For a trendy option that they’re sure to love, make Pupcakes. These cupcakes for your dog look so good, you might just want to steal a bite (and if you really want, you can! They’re made with wholesome, human-friendly ingredients). The cake calls for peanut butter, bananas, flour, egg, and rolled oats among other cooking essentials, while the frosting is made from a combination of peanut butter and Greek yogurt. Another sweet option that they’re sure to love is our Blueberry Dog Biscuits. As the name entails, they’re made with frozen organic blueberries for a mouthwatering surprise. Nutritious components like quinoa flour and flax meal round out the homemade indulgence.
With Treats like these, is it any wonder that our returning guests leap out of their owner’s cars, wagging their tails in joy, to be starting their vacation with us (or was it the owners going on vacation) Hard to tell which.
