Is your dog spoiled? If they are anything like mine, they are worth every minute and every penny! They deserve every single treat in this list.
DIY Dog Treats
Dog-moms and dads are the best! It’s so fun to spoil our fur babies. And what better way to treat them than to make them something fresh from the kitchen?
In fact, some of the DIY dog treats on this list are so scrumptious-looking that you’ll be tempted to sneak a taste.
They are all filled with healthy ingredients. Your dog won’t even know they are eating something that is good for them. They will just think you love them! Which you do. So very much!
Finally, try these 5-ingredient dog treats for your puppy. They come out crispy. Use a bone cookie-cutter to make them look like traditional dog treats.
Cranberry, Lentil, and Oats
The first treat is perfect for the winter holidays like Christmas. Cranberry is a fruit that most people eat around Thanksgiving time. But you can serve these year-round.
If your dog can’t have grains or you are trying to keep that out of their diets, then this recipe is for you. There are only 5 ingredients. What gives it the crunch of a biscuit is the rice flour. No grains!
Sweet Potato Treats
Sweet potatoes are really high in vitamin A. These treats are a fantastic source of vitamins and nutrients. There are only 4 ingredients and just take about 30 minutes to bake.
Does your dog beg for your donuts whenever you bring them home? Save these donuts for them so they can have their own! They even have bacon bits sprinkled on the top for a little extra flavor.

Homemade Pizza Treats
This is one of the treats on the list that looks like something you’d fix for yourself. They look like little mini pizzas in the shape of bones. They are made with flour, cornmeal, sundried tomatoes, and even some parmesan cheese!
