Why make your own dog treats
Store bought dog treats as well as store bought dog food is usually heavily processed and full of preservatives. Making your own dog biscuits is a lot healthy for your dog.

Healthy treats ideas
I have a 10 year-old border collie and she loves peanut butter, chickpeas and pears. These homemade dog biscuits include peanut butter, which of course means she loves them.
For the chickpeas I roast them in the oven until they become crispy. Then add to her food for some added crunch. I also fill her kong toy with cut up pieces of pears to keep her entertained for a few minutes. Border collies are very clever which means it doesn’t take her long to figure out how to get the pear out of her toy.

How to shape the biscuits
For the biscuits shape I used a dog bone shaped cookie cutter. For the dog shape i had to improvise and use a reindeer shape. I cut of the reindeer’s antlers and shaped the top to look like a dog ear.
You can use whatever you have to shape them. Previously, I’ve used a variety of different shapes to make these even the rim of a glass works well. The shape doesn’t really matter to the final result. All your dog cares about is the taste.
- Gluten free plain flour
- Rolled oats
- Peanut butter
How to store the biscuits
While am sure these biscuits won’t last long enough to go mouldy. Its best to keep them in an airtight container in either the fridge or at room temperature.
One of lexis favourite treats she would happily devour them all in one go if i let her. Its great to be able to spoil her with a treat that i know is healthy for her and which she enjoys every bite.
