Awesome Homemade Dog Treats

Here are the simplest, quickest and healthiest homemade dog treats on the planet. May this change your entire view of dog snacks forever.

Here's the deal, there are thousands of recipes for dogs that claim to be healthy and aren't. AND they take time to prepare.

Trust me, difficult or time consuming is NOT better and if we look at what our dogs like and were meant to eat, this should have you slapping your forehead and asking, "Why didn't I think of this myself?

It's called meat. Not just any meat but the best. Let me show you the first one right here and I'll explain the wonderfulness of it afterward.

Then you can smile right along with me.

One of the very best homemade dog treats and the cost? This is 1/2 lb and my price was fifty cents. What is it? Chicken gizzards.

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe

Use any of the following:

  • chicken hearts
  • chicken gizzards
  • chicken livers

Spread out in single layer on glass pie plate, Pyrex or cookie sheet with small lip.

Put in oven and bake at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes. Cool, put in container and store in the refrigerator.

Use within 7 days. You can also freeze a portion for later, serve as an occasional meal replacement or boost the nutritional value of your kibble by adding it often.

Why This is the Perfect Dog Treat Recipe

Let me count the ways these are the best dog snacks in the world:

  • Organ meat is more nutritious than muscle meat
  • Heart is actually muscle meat but low in fat
  • Gizzards are considered offal which is never awful but has different nutrients than other parts and should be eaten often
  • It's perfect plain. Dogs should not have spices. Not even table salt.
  • Gizzards are especially chewy and good for oral health.
  • Since there is no processed foods or flour, they do not promote tarter like most treats and snacks
  • A great price!  Between $1 and $2 a pound without fake flavors, flavor enhancers (MSG), preservatives, fake color or man made vitamins. It's the real deal.

In fact the only way to improve it is to serve it raw.

I am a raw feeder and these are frequent ingredients in my Lulu's food. The fun part for me is when the kids come by and want to give her a treat, they just open the fridge and scan for a raw tidbit.

Having a container of hearts & gizzards works perfectly.

Instant, healthy treat!

When I Was Setting Up the Recipe Photo....

I'm in the process of moving and found an empty spot with good lighting for the photo. I set it up and went to get the camera.

This is what I saw on my return. I'm so darn proud of Lulu. She could have eaten the whole thing in the blink of an eye. I forget to appreciate her wonderful manners all too often.

What did I do? I gave that girl a raw gizzard . . . and a heart . . . and then one more gizzard. I couldn't help myself!

You know you have an awesome dog when you leave food where she can reach it and leave the room to get something and come back to this...
