At TSB, we know a whole lot of horse people are dog people, too, and if you’re anything like us, you want to show your pups a little love as often and in as many ways as you can. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we thought it a good time to share an easy homemade dog treat recipe that’s sure to please the dog(s) in your life. Tail wags guaranteed!
My (almost) four-year-old son Augustin helped make these treats for our Redbone Coonhound Boon—they are easy, fun, and as you can see from the photos, a big hit with the pup!
TSB’s I Heart My Dog Treats
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
2 tbs peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
2 Stir together ingredients. Add a little flour as needed to make dough dry and a bit stiff, but still able to hold together.
3 Roll the dough out on liberally floured surface to 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick and cut using heart-shaped cookie cutters (we used kitty-shaped cookie cutters, too!)
4 Bake until hard—about 45 minutes.
5 Let cool and then go ahead, share the love!
