It’s summer, it’s hot. But you still need homemade dog treats for Fido. Yes, you do. Certainly you don’t buy your dog treats? There are so many recalls with kibble and treats these days which makes me much more cautious with what I’m feeding my pups.
Most of you know I feed mine a raw diet but I supplement that with kibble. These days I’m feeding Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free which gets a 5-star rating on Dog Food Advisor. It’s sourced and made in Dublin, Georgia which is kind of cool.
And to supplement their daily food rations,of course, they get treats.And I usually make them myself. It’s so easy and they absolutely know when I’m baking just for them.
But the recipe here is a no bake recipe! Gotta love that! No need to turn on the oven and heat up the kitchen during these hot summer days. I put them on a cookie sheet and froze them, then put them in a zip loc bag and back into the freezer for storage. I just pull out the bag and grab the portion I need and everyone is happy!
Life is good!
