It can be quite scary to me the number of pet owners who pay no attention to what they are feeding their pets; dogs especially. There can be so many fillers and Lord knows what else in dog foods or dog treats. It wasn’t too long ago that a particular dog food company had to pull their entire inventory off the shelves because of bad ingredients. That’s why learning how to make things like homemade dog treats can be super important to keeping your pet healthy. If making homemade dog food intimidates you, these homemade chicken and parsley dog treats are the perfect place to start!

These homemade chicken dog treats make a fantastic gift idea too! They also work very well as a product if you’re looking to start selling homemade items as a new home business idea! If you’re going to gift them to someone or sell them, I recommend picking up THIS set of dog bone cookie cutters since it has multiple sizes and will allow you to make them in sizes that all dogs can handle.

When you make these homemade dog treats, I would not recommend changing up the ingredients at all. The recipe calls for whole wheat flour for a couple of reasons. The biggest one is that the dough for  your homemade dog treats will have a much better consistency with whole wheat flour and will be far easier to work with.

You Will Need:

To start, preheat your oven to 350°F. Then, in a small saucepan, dissolve the bouillon cubes.

Next, in a large mixing bowl, combine the hot broth, whole wheat flour, salt, parsley and the whole egg. When you add the egg, crumble up the shell and add it to the mixture as well. Your dog won’t care and it will help provide a bit of calcium in your homemade dog treats to give your pup a bit more of a health boost.

Lightly flour your counter and using a rolling pinroll the homemade dog treat dough out to 1/4″ thick and use your dog bone shaped cookie cutter to cut our your dog treats. Don’t waste any scrap dough. Piece it back together, re-roll and re-cut until you have no dough left to work with. If the dough is sticking to the cookie cutter, dip the cutter in flour before each cut.

Once your homemade chicken dog treats are cut out, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Allow your homemade dog treats to cool fully before treating your doggo!
