If you have a dog, you’re probably always looking for cheap treats to give them. The problem is that a lot of store-bought treats are full of things that are not a natural part of a dog’s diet.
Similar to commercial dog food, most commercial dog treats are full of grains, vegetable oils, and chemicals.
Well today, I have a solution for you. I’ve come up with some simple homemade dog treats that are not only cheap but healthy as well.
These treats are simply a byproduct of making bone broth.
Now I’m a huge proponent of homemade bone broth for us humans. They are excellent for healthy digestion (my specialty), healthy joints, strong bones, and supple skin.
But they’re also excellent for dogs! I give my buddy Lipton a little broth with her dried food almost every day. In fact, there’s even bone broth for dogs now.
But one of the benefits of making broth at home is that you can also make some simple homemade dog treats that your dog will absolutely love.
Instead of me yammering on about it, let me just show you how I do it.
That was a fun video to put together! Isn’t Lipton adorable? I may be biased but I think she’s pretty much the best dog ever.
Now there are different shapes and sizes of kong toys in which you can stuff homemade dog treats. Most pet stores carry a few of them but you can find them cheaper on Amazon.
Do NOT get the kong toys shaped like bowling pins. Like this one:
They’re not that durable. Lipton tore that one to shreds within a few days. That was $15 down the drain.
Now if you have a small dog, this one would probably work well:
But I would HIGHLY recommend the one shown in the video, especially if you have a medium to large-sized dog. Which is this one:
Lipton’s had that one for over a year and it’s still going strong.
Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did!
