DIY: Dog Treats That Your K9 Will Love

Dog Treats your K9 will love

We have two fur babies that we absolutely adore, but it’s hard to spoil your pups when you’re on a tight budget. We usually get them one toy each for Christmas that lasts for the year. But when they’re being good, you just need to have some biscuits on hand to spoil them with. Instead of buying $20 worth of dog treats, I decided that I would make my own dog treats!

This is a very affordable method for spoiling your fur babies and I had all the ingredients I needed on hand. I’m also very conscious of what is in our people food, so I think we should be conscious of the ingredients in our furry friends treats too!

Here’s a quick and easy dog biscuit recipe that you probably already have all the ingredients too.

Trust me when I say, my pups love them. If you don’t take my word for it – look at these pictures! They loved them!



⅔ cup pumpkin puree
¼ cup peanut butter
¼ cup applesauce
3 cups flour or more as needed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, I used my kitchen aid, mix together pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and applesauce for 1-2 minutes until well combined. Gradually add 2 ½ cups flour, until incorporated. Be sure you don’t over mix. Add the additional ¼ cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky.

  3. Working on a floured surface, knead dough until it comes together. Roll out dough to a ¼ inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes. I used hearts because that’s all we had – but it also looks cute!

  4. Place in oven and bake until edges are golden brown. About 20-25 minutes.

  5. Let cool completely and let your furry pup try some!
