If you’ve got a penchant for cooking and fancy making something new, why not whip something up for your four-legged friend? Not only are homemade dog treats fun to make in the kitchen, but using natural ingredients that are attuned to your dog’s tastes will give them a serious wagging tail, are a healthier option and give an added reward when your hard work and love has gone into them.
Here at Barc HQ we love to make our own dog treats, so we’ve rounded up three of our favourite dog treat recipes for you to have a go at. Don’t worry if you’re a baking novice, these handpicked options are simple, easy and will certainly prove irresistible to your dog.
Pumpkin bacon biscuits
If your pup is a sucker for bacon, then this dog biscuit recipe is for you. The mixture of pumpkin zapped into the mix certainly sweetens the deal. When dried these treats keep for a while, so make a hearty batch and stick them in the treat tin for when your pup needs a delicious pick-me-up.
Scroll to number 10 on the below link’s list is a double-whammy. Give your dog a scrumptious treat and prevent fleas at the same time. The garlic and yeast ingredients in this recipe both deter your pup’s number one enemy from coming near them, but you might just have to learn to deal with the garlic breath.

Our last pick is a real indulgence. This ice cream is super-easy, dog-friendly and can be made into so many fun variations. When you fancy spoiling yourself with an after-dinner desert, make sure your dog gets in on the action too.
