Now we get it, your time is valuable… You are raising a puppy after all! Never fear, we certainly wouldn’t saddle you down with complicated recipes. No sir, or ma’am, we’ve got your back. We have developed these scrumptious and nutritious, easy-to-make, DIY puppy training treats just for you. 

Tools You’ll Need

Just like when you make a recipe for a human, there are a few things you’ll need to help make puppy treat preparation a snap. You’ll want to have the following on hand:

  • Glass mixing bowls
  • Spatulas
  • Stove or toaster oven
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Bone and paw molds

Make sure everything is nice and clean, and don your apron because it’s time to get busy and make some puppy treats!

Berry Yogurt Frozen Treats

½ C Blueberries

½ C Blackberries (or berry of your choice)

¾ C Greek Yogurt or Kefir (unsweetened)

Spoon half of the yogurt into your bone or paw molds, filling each only half full and not to the top. Try not to get any of the yogurt on the sides. There are a few tricks to doing this: use a baby spoon, a knife, or a place the yogurt in a plastic sandwich bag and cut off a small piece from a corner and gently squeeze the yogurt out into the molds.

Split the remaining yogurt into two mixing bowls. Pour the blueberries into one bowl of yogurt, and the blackberries in the other bowl of yogurt. Mix each bowl until the yogurt and berry are incorporated, but not silky smooth.

Top off the half-filled molds with each type of berry and yogurt mix. It’s easiest to do this with a small spoon. Fill to the top, but do not overfill.

Place the filled molds in the freezer for 3 hours.

Pop one out of the mold as needed for your training treats - or whenever the mood strikes you to give your puppy a delicious berry yogurt treat. 

Nutrition Notes: Greek yogurt and kefir are both natural probiotics, encouraging excellent health in your puppy’s tummy. Berries are wonderful antioxidants.

Cheesy Fake Out Treats

½ Head Cauliflower

½ C Nutritional Yeast

½ T Parsley

½ T Oregano

1 Egg 

Set oven to heat to 450 degrees fahrenheit/230 degrees celsius.

Clean a half head of cauliflower, as you would for steaming. Cut the cleaned pieces relatively small. You can put it through a food processor, using the grating blade, to cut it into small shredded pieces. Steam the finely cut cauliflower for 15 minutes. Transfer the steamed and drained cauliflower into a glass bowl and place in the refrigerator to completely cool (approximately 20 minutes). Stir occasionally during the cooling process as this helps speed things along.

Remove the bowl of cool cauliflower from the refrigerator and mix in remaining ingredients until evenly incorporated. Mash the cauliflower into the added ingredients, no need for a mixer, a fork typically gets the job done.

With a spoon fill the bone or paw molds half full. Try not to get any on the side of the molds.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Check frequently to ensure they do not burn.

Once done allow to cool before giving one to your pup.

Nutrition Notes: While these treats appear flour-based, there is no flour in them. Cauliflower and nutritional yeast combine to create a cheesy-bread flavor that your dog will love. You will too, since they are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and low in calories.

Make Treat Time Family Time

Making your dog’s treats truly is simple and it can be fun for the whole family. By making your pup’s treats you can learn about a dog’s nutritional needs - and understand that the healthy things you eat are often good for dogs too. Also, the right tools do help make things a snap. Like our food grade bone and paw molds - they are not only easy to use and clean, they make super cute-shaped treats. Oh, and if you really want your dog to pay attention during nose work training, try one of the Cheesy Fake Out treats. Yup, when you have the right treats, puppy training can be a breeze!
