{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} 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} Easy DIY Leaf Dog Treats (Naturally Green!)

Since many of you are enjoying your late spring, here is a fresh and natural leafy green dog treat recipe to wrap up the month of May.  If (like us) you're in more of a fall feeling, you can simply swap the natural (or artifical) colouring add-ins to create gold, orange, brown, etc. It is the last week of autumn here, with winter and leaves are falling, days grow ever shorter, and nights are getting chilly (great for dog snuggles...), but since I already have a pretty maple leaf treat post prepped and waiting for our Canada 150th furfriends next month, I decided to go green for these treats.  Plus, our boys love their wheatgrass!

{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!
