Homemade Dog Treats Recipe with FREE Printable “Happy Howlidays” Gift Tags


Ever baked homemade dogs treats?🐾🐶

Try this easy and yummy recipe that will get two paws up from your fur baby for sure!

Making dog biscuits is actually super easy, economical compared to store bought, and can have health benefits as you can control exactly what’s in them. This is the basic recipe I use, and you can adapt it to use other doggy friendly puree fruits or veggies if desired. Pumpkin is a great option because it’s high in fiber, and contains potassium, iron, and vitamin A, among other ingredients.

dsc_0081Homemade dog treats can also be a really cute homemade gift idea to give during the holidays! It’s a fun project for the kids to get involved with too.

I’ve also designed a couple of FREE printable Christmas tags. Just add some treats to a jar or bag and include these gift tags for your doggy pals. And actually you could pair these tags with pretty much any dog related gift!

Note: Make sure your peanut butter doesn’t contain the artificial sweetener Xylitol because it’s poisonous to dogs. Click here for a helpful list of human foods to avoid with dogs.


Our puppy loves these, and we enjoy spoiling him! They look and feel exactly like store bought, and are very fun to make.

    Can you use just regular flour?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes —I think whole wheat is commonly used for slightly higher nutrition – thanks!

  2. Suzy

      I totally agree with you, Suzy! Thank you to H2S and Lina!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        Aw thanks for reading!!

    I make homemade dog treats all of the time for our dogs with soent grain. After you bake them, turn the oven down to 250° and put the treats back in for 6-8 hours to remove more of the moisture and they will keep longer.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh interesting! – thanks for sharing 👍

    • Christine

      Ann based on what you said about adding the biscuits back to the oven to dry out, can these biscuits be placed in a dehydrator to be cooked so that the moisture is removed?

      Also Lina if my dog is on a grain free diet would this be good for him using the whole wheat flour, if not what would be a good alternative. I have cans of pumpkin because I use it in my smoothies so if this can help my Winston I would not mind making these for him, they would be much healthier, IMO…..thanks

      • Aileen G

        I make my dog treats in my dehydrator exclusively, works great! You should have no problems. Also for grain free flour, try coconut flour or almond flour.

        • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

          Great idea thanks for sharing!

      • Ann

        I don’t see why not. I make several batches at a time which is why I use the oven.

      • Christine

        Thank you all for your replies, I plan on making these this week!!

  4. Carol_R

    I’ll have to try this for my dog. They look great! Thanks Lina.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks for reading Carol!

  5. Nichole

    What brand of peanut butter do you use?

    • Emilytwinmom

      I make mine with Peter Pan creamy. Anything that doesn’t have xylitol should be fine, I use Peter Pan because it only has two or three ingredients 🙂

  6. Deanna

    I make these weekly (three dogs) but minus the eggs. No real reason for minus the eggs except that was the recipe I found originally. I buy the large cans of pumpkin when they are on sale and freeze what I don’t need this week so I can pull it out the next time I bake these. My dogs go nuts for these dog treats. I started making them because my older doggie was having problems with the hard store-bought treats. These are soft and she handles them easily.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Awesome – thanks for sharing!

  7. JAY

    Thank you! I will make these for all of our neighbor doggies!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      How nice! They will love u 👍

  8. harley

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure- you too Harley!

  9. Johanna

    This is great, I was just thinking about this. My mother is bringing her three dogs to my house for thanksgiving and I have a lot of pumpkin purée that I need to use

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh awesome! Thanks Johanna 👍

  10. Olivia Douglass

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yay! Have fun 😀

  11. Jaime

    Thanks for all your idea, all year long!

    • Jaime

      Sorry auto correct took out the I in Lina😉

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh you’re welcome- thanks for reading ally ear long!

  12. Lisa K

    FYI – the containers. My dollar store often has the small bone or paw print containers to put these in. If not they definitely have something you can use. Usually the Christmas one come out this time of the year.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Lisa! I’ll look for those! Cute

  13. Emilytwinmom

    I make these without egg and with gluten free flour for my chihuahua mix. I have celiac disease and can’t touch glutinous flours, the dog doesn’t know the difference! I roll them thin and use a small cookie cutter, and I keep a bag of maybe 15 in the fridge and the rest in the freezer, and grab some as needed. It makes hundreds of the size I make LOL!!! My dog adores them, anyone says cookie and that girl is at the fridge vibrating 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ha so cute – thanks Emily!
