Guys, meet Toby. Toby is my sweet little morkie who deserves to eat homemade dog treats all day, every day. Of all of the dog treat recipes that I’ve made him over the years, (including homemade dog cake), these might be his all-time favorite, because they’re packed with so many of his favorite things.

My inspiration for these began the other day when I dropped a big ol’ strawberry on the floor. Since Toby is my personal robotic vacuum, he polished that sucker up before I could even attempt to bend down and pick it up.

I panicked and grabbed my phone for what was probably my 50th random Google search that day:

Can Dogs Eat Strawberries?

Yes. Dogs can absolutely eat strawberries. They have lots of vitamins and minerals that are actually very good for dogs, but they’re also sweet, and should be served to dogs and puppies in moderation to prevent stomach aches.

Best Kind of Peanut Butter for Dogs

  • All-natural peanut butter without added salt or sugar is best for dogs.
  • Do not use light or sugar-free peanut butter, as those may have artificial sweeteners (such as xylitol) which is toxic to dogs.
  • I like to use Teddy Smooth All-Natural Peanut Butter, which can also commonly be found in grocery stores.

Best Kind of Flour for Dogs

If possible, I recommend using Almond flour, because it’s healthy and easy to find at the grocery store.

Healthier Flour Alternatives for Dog Treats:

Grain: Barley, Buckwheat, Millet, Oat, Pea, Quinoa, Rice, Sorghum

Non-Grain: Chickpea, Coconut, Hazelnut, Lentil, Potato

Storage

  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Or freeze for up to 3 months, removing them as you need them and letting them come to room temperature.

The Best Dog Treat Molds

These dog treat molds hold the shape perfectly, and makes the process even faster because you don’t have to roll out the mixture and cut shapes, (although you could)!

These are the same molds used for this recipe!

Storing Homemade Dog Treats

  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Or freeze for up to 3 months, removing them as you need them and letting them come to room temperature.

Dog Treats as Gifts:

  • These treats make fantastic gift ideas! These are the dog treat molds that I used in this recipe.
  • These are even smaller treat molds and are perfect for giving in these little canisters!
  • Treat-making and gift-giving is also a great activity for little ones, (with your assistance of course!)
