If you love your sweet pup as much as I love mine then give them these easy to make homemade treats of Sweet Potato Banana Dog Biscuits. They’ll love them so much, they might just let you sleep in Saturday morning!
Oh you guys, I have been a bad dog momma. I just let Sir Pugsley’s birthday come and go with just a whisper of a celebration last month.
Stop it, I’m not crazy, it’s not like I throw a dog party with the neighborhood pooches but I like to do something special for the little guy. After all, he brings such joy into my life, so why can’t I do a little something extra that makes him dance.
For real, treats make him get up on his hind legs and do a little boogie dance. It’s rather hysterical and probably something we should have trained out of him as a puppy but he’s a pug. . . a dog that is motivated but one thing – food (and snuggles but mostly food).
In all seriousness though, you can’t do better for your dog than homemade treats.
For months I spent a ton of money on those organic jerky treats to only find out the meat still came from overseas. It’s not really something I want to feed my dog. While most of the time he gets just fruit and vegetables during the day every few months he does get something special.
The sweet potato is great for your dogs digestive system and they contain amino acids to increase the bodies antioxidant activity. Plus the banana is high in potassium to to help your pups muscles stay strong! Secretly these treats are health bombs!
Now they do contain grain, which for some pups can upset their stomach and I’m working on a grain-free version that I hope to share with you too but the little dude seems to fine with the small amount of flour he gets every few days from having a treat. The key is to know what is best for your dog. Switching out the all the whole wheat flour with ground oats should work find, as it’s mostly a way to bind everything together. Plus the oats add protein and soluble fiber.
Enough of the health talk though, let’s get to treat making, your doggie is waiting!
