dog-safe treat recipes

We all love spoiling our furry friends, but knowing which treats are safe and healthy for our canine companions can be challenging with so many options available. At Canine Couture Grooming, we love making your dog look and feel their best and care about their overall health and well-being. That’s why we’ve put together some pawsome dog-safe treat recipes that are easy to make and sure to leave your pup wagging its tail!

Before You Bake

  • Always consult with your veterinarian. Before introducing new foods to your dog’s diet, especially if they have any allergies or health conditions.
  • Choose fresh, healthy ingredients. Avoid processed foods, added sugars, and artificial flavors.
  • Use age-appropriate portion sizes. Smaller treats are better for training and younger pups.
  • Let treats be treats. Refrain from replacing their regular meals with homemade goodies.

Dog-Safe Recipe Ideas

These treats are easy to make with healthy ingredients and perfect for spoiling your furry friend.

Simple 3-Ingredient Treats:

  • Banana Oatmeal Bites: Mash together one ripe banana with 1/2 cup rolled oats in a bowl. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350°F (175°C) for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Sweet Potato Chews: Slice a sweet potato into thin rounds and bake at 300°F (150°C) for 1-2 hours or until dehydrated and chewy. Let the sweet potato cool entirely before offering it to your pup.

Festive Fun:

  • Apple Cranberry Crisps: Combine 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup rolled oats, and 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries. Cut in 1/4 cup cold coconut oil until crumbly. Press half the mixture into the bottom of a greased baking dish. Fill with 1 cup chopped apples and top with remaining crumble mixture. Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely and cut into squares.

Get The Family Involved! 

Are you looking for a challenge? Get the kids involved in making homemade treats for your pup! Just be sure to supervise them in the kitchen and choose age-appropriate tasks.


  • Store homemade treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Dehydrated treats can last longer at room temperature, but watch for spoilage.
  • When in doubt, throw it out!

Enjoy creating these delicious and nutritious treats for your pup!
