{RECIPE} Cream Cheese Chicken Dog Treats

These treats combine the irresistible flavours of grilled chicken and tangy cream cheese with tasty herbs, and use healthy add-ins to make a naturally green treat - just because! They are perfectly yummy au natural, but cream cheese dough is great for tinting and I felt like playing. As we were pre-prepping our St. Patrick's Day posts at the time, I went for green, but this dough would also make a great base for other tints. I may try a pretty pink beetroot powder adaptation next time!

{RECIPE} "Kitchen Sink" Super Puppy Patty Dog Treats

Drawstring bags of orange dog treats on a wooden table

These dog treats are packed with doggone delicious flavours and boosted with healthy ingredients, including some dog-friendly super foods.  Unlike many of our treats, these super food puppy patties include a wide variety of ingredients, hence the kitchen sink nickname. :)  Not to worry; however, as you can also easily customise the recipe to adjust quantities or make substitutions to suit your preferences and your dog's tastes.

{RECIPE} Naturally Green Kale and Herb Gummy Dog Treats

Gummies are some of the simplest treats we make, but they're also some of the healthiest. Pawesome! A batch of gummies takes only a few minutes to prepare, most of which is hands-off for blooming, and then they're off to set in the fridge. Easy peasy! In the spirit of our Year of the Dog pledge to always have gummies on hand in the fridge as "treats" we're playing with lots of flavour combos and mixtures, so you'll be seeing plenty of pawesome gummy ideas here on the blog.

{RECIPE} Naturally Green Christmas Tree Dog Treats

Homemade Christmas dog treats shaped like green trees on a table with red and green drawstring treat bags and ribbons

These miniature Christmas tree dog treats are naturally green bite-sized bits of Christmas goodness, made using an adaptation of our leafy green dog treat dough and were perfect with my miniature Christmas tree cookie cutter - bite-sized for my boys.   For a slightly richer and darker green colour, I used a combination of both kale and wheatgrass. I also experimented with low-fat coconut milk powder in lieu of low-fat diary milk powder.  It had a little more impact on the liquid-to-flour than my usual low-fat dairy milk powder (slightly less flour required for a cohesive dough), but nothing significant and it added a great scent to the mix.  Dairy is still my go-to for baking, but if you're dog is lactose sensitive or you're just looking for a change, it's definitely a potential substitution option.

{RECIPE} St. Patrick's Day Hound's Holiday Hash Cookies

Green homemade dog cookie treats for St. Patrick's Day

These cookies were inspired by Irish hash, although I somehow doubt my grandmother would approve of this particular recipe. Hehe!  The St. Patrick's Day dog treats combine potato, kale, egg, and beef into a naturally green dog-friendly baked cookie. Corned beef would be far too salty for our furry friends, but salt-free homemade dog beef jerky chunks in a colcannon-inspired dough? Doggone delicious. Lucky doggies indeed!
