20 Homemade Dog Treats

Happy National Dog Biscuit Day! 

Yup, another random national holiday, but this one is especially fun, because it involves this guy.

A collection of 20 fun homemade dog treat recipes.

My man loves himself some treats. {Although, funny story: I have literally found ONE THING that Fletcher won’t eat — and the “will happily eat” list includes napkins, tissues and mulch, btw — and that is these little, teeny tiny dog biscuits that I got for him at a local pet supply store. They’re the cutest ever, like 1/2″ long, and I thought they’d be good for training and for taking on walks in the treat holder on his leash. But when I try to give one to him, he immediately spits it out and then looks at me like, “What the hell?” I cannot figure it out.}

Anyway, he loves himself most treats. And I love making treats for him, because… well, that’s how I roll. So I decided to share some of my favorite treat recipes from some of my favorite bloggers. 

Which one do you think your dog will enjoy the most?

NOTE: I have compiled these recipes from some of my favorite blogs and websites. To pin any of these individual recipes, please click on the appropriate link below each photo and pin from the original source. To pin the entire collection, use the photo above. Thank you!
