Make Your Own Dog Treats


As my beloved Red Heeler Sadie will tell you, dog treats don’t need to be complicated. If you can turn on the oven, you can make them yourself. The basic recipe I use calls for only five ingredients that most of you already have on hand.

As you can see from the photo above, she loves my homemade dog treats and I know your pups will, too.

To start, gather these ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup Chicken or Beef Broth +/-
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir well to combine.


Make a small indention in the center of the dry ingredients and crack the egg in it. Add 1/2 cup of broth and begin to mix with your hands. Continue to mix and knead, adding broth a little at a time just until all of the dry ingredients are incorporated.

Turn out on a board and roll to 1/4” thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Place on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray, or use a Silpat.


Bake at 350F degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Store in a tightly-sealed container for up to 2 weeks. You can freeze extra and thaw them when you need more!

I’m seriously considering ordering these dog bone cookie cutters. I think Sadie would love them, don’t you?


You can vary the recipe in a number of ways. Sadie also loves:

  • Pumpkin puree
  • Shredded carrot (I actually use what’s left when I make carrot juice…shhhhh!)
  • Peanut butter
