Nov 08, 2016

Finding a delicious high quality treat for your pet can be difficult. With all the additives, preservatives, fillers and byproducts in store-bought treats, it’s hard know what you’re getting. Timbercreek Communities is here to help with some homemade pet treats you can make in the comfort and convenience of your kitchen.

Peanut Butter Dog Bone Cookies

These Peanut Butter Dog Bone Cookies are easy to make, and won’t stick to the roof of your dog’s mouth. They feature simple ingredients you likely have on hand -- a little flour, oats, chicken broth, parmesan cheese and of course, peanut butter. They only take about 10 minutes of prep time and another 20 minutes in the oven. They can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week, though your dog probably won’t let you keep them that long.

Bacon Flavoured Biscuits

Save that bacon fat from your next big breakfast. -- your dog will love you for it! Put it to good use in these Bacon Flavoured Biscuits. With about 20 minutes of prep time, you can make a simple dough of flour, water, milk, eggs and bacon fat. Bake the dough for about 40 minutes and store whatever your dog doesn’t devour in a covered container in the fridge of your Timbercreek home. The recipe makes about 25 biscuits.

Paw Print Dog Treats

These simple Paw Print Dog Treats will put a smile on your dog’s face. They are easy and wholesome treat for your pet -- made of flour, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ and a little chicken stock. The recipe yields about 2 dozen treats that can be stored at room temperature for up to a month. They are a perfect portable treat for walks.

Chicken Treats for Cats

Form the treats into bite sized pieces and bake them for 20 minutes. This recipe yields several dozen small treats.
