You love your puppy like family, right? So, why would you feed him or her those junky cheap treats from the store?

They might not taste the greatest, but with only baby food and oat flour as ingredients, they’re just as edible as your favorite cookie.
And you can make them in any flavor your dog likes! Just head to the baby food aisle at the grocery store and pick out his favorites.
Here’s Some Flavor Ideas…

You could even mix some of these flavors and make an even bigger variety of the best homemade dog treats! Just be sure not to use anything that puppies are allergic to…here’s a great list from WebMD Pets.
Our Reason for Making The Best Homemade Dog Treats
Most of you know that we adopted 2 rescue puppies in August 2015. They are they sweetest little puppy girls, but holy cow, do they like to eat!
Because they are rescues, we are sort of unsure of their full breeding. The only idea we currently have is that their mother was a Shepherd…of some sort and this makes it very difficult to choose the right foods and to know how much food to feed them.
I mean a Chihuahua eats way less than a St. Bernard, right?
But regardless of what their breeding is, they love these dog treats! In fact, they try to go outside, just so they can have one when they come back inside.
When they come back inside, they run straight to the cabinet where I keep their yummy dog biscuits.
Pretty smart puppies!
The Best Homemade Dog Treats are So Easy to Make!
But, the best part is for me!
Just like when baking for humans, you want to use the least ingredients necessary and the best homemade dog treats only require 2 ingredients! One of which you can pick based on your own dogs needs or personal preference!
Plus, they take less than an hour to make and cost only pennies for a whole batch!
