Here are a few more benefits to making your own dog treats:
Before you start making homemade dog treats, there are a few things you’ll need. The method we’ll be focusing on most in this blog is air-drying, a process where the moisture from raw meats is dried out and dehydrated. This makes a crunchy, natural treat for your pup, packed with proteins and vitamins from the dried meat.
To prepare for making your dog’s treats from home, prepare these items and ingredients:
...that’s all! Making homemade treats for your pup is an affordable and easy process that could be customized depending on your dog’s health requirements and taste. Small things like smearing a bit ofdog-safe peanut butter on your dog’s dehydrated treats can bring the taste to another level!
*Note: Depending on the ingredient being air fried, the amount of time and temperature you should cook the ingredient will vary. For some specific ingredients, you may want to find a recipe focused on that specific ingredient.
