I recently shared with you that Cullen is a Pedigree Ambassador. He’s actually been a self-proclaimed Pedigree Ambassador for a long time, since it’s basically the only food he’s ever eaten in his two and a half years!- He loves it! But let’s face it, even furry four legged friends enjoy “treats” every now and then.
Since Yorkies are known for bad teeth, I give Cullen a Pedigree Dental Chew daily…it’s his special treat when I leave the house. He can tell when I’m gathering my stuff up to walk out the door….he runs to the cabinet waiting for his treat! lol…..I love how intuitive he is.
Between the Pedigree Dry Dog food and the Dental Chews our vet was rather impressed with Cullen’s teeth.
There are several other times during the day I like to give him an extra “snack”……don’t judge lol…. my husband and I are the kind of pathetic people who will talk about our dog all day lol….our girls are even jealous of him, they think he gets too much attention and is treated better than they are! haha
Today……….Cullen is here to share a recipe with y’all!! I say these homemade dog treats are easy, healthy, and natural…..Cullen says they are crunchy and taste great!
So far, all 4 of our dogs have tried them, and lets just say, there has been a lot of jumping in the air and begging. They’re so easy to make I’m thinking of making a few more batches, dropping them in cellophane bags with ribbon and taking them up to our Humane Society.
My friend Nancy of The Sensitive Pantry, shared this gluten-free recipe with me a few months ago. My only regret is, that I didn’t try it sooner.
- 1 cup oat flour (you can just whip up your own by grinding up rolled oats)
- 1 cup brown rice flour (or you can substitute regular or whole wheat flour)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (unsalted is best)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup water
- 2-3 pieces cooked bacon
- 1 shredded carrot
- Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl combine all wet ingredients until well blended. Add both flours to wet mixture to form dough.
- Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper or lightly floured work surface to 1/4 inch thick.
- Cut out with cookie cutter. (I used a dog bone shape cookie cutter)
- Place treats on a parchment lined baking sheet (they can be close together, just not touching) and bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Cool in oven, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Store about a weeks worth on the counter in a sealed container and the rest can go in the freezer.

“I wrote this review while participating in an Ambassador campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Pedigree and received dog food to facilitate my reviews and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate. All opinions and love for Pedigree dog food are all mine and Cullen’s”
