Just like us, our dogs love a treat every now and then. We’ve just added 2 little puppies to our family, Mr. T and Spot the Dog. They’re, of course, the cutest thing ever, and I love their antics when there’s a treat to be had. They’re 10 weeks old now, weighing just over 26 pounds each.
I know right, super cute! Some more puppy spam… Mr. T!

Dog food for me is no different from people food. I want to know what’s in it.
I found out recently that commercial dog food can contain absolutely horribly things like plastic, sawdust, growth hormones, fecal matter, rat poison, and even euthanasia drugs!
Do you really want to feed that to your furry family members? Yeah, didn’t think so. It’s disgusting and rather hard to believe but these are all ingredients that have been found in commercial dog food.
Since we raise our own cattle, I have been focusing on a more natural diet for our dogs. It’s easy to feed them all a bone a day, but how do I make sure they get all the nutrition they need, especially our latest 2 tiny additions, being growing pups?
Switch to a truly natural dog food like Wild Earth. Their Clean Protein Dog Food has all the protein and nutrients a dog needs, without any of those awful ingredients.
Today, I want to share a couple of DIY dog treats with you, made with Wild Earth dog food.
This is a yummy sauce to pour over your dog’s food – a nice treat for a special occasion or a little booster for sometimes.
Note: These recipes are meant as a sweet treat, just like you might have a cookie or a cupcake sometimes. The gravy, for example, is not intended to pour over your dog’s food every day.
It includes lentils, full or fiber, protein, and essential minerals.
2. Pupper Nutter Truffles
A yummy raw DIY dog treat with rolled oats, chia seeds, and peanut butter.
3. Biscuits and Banana Milkshake
A yummy, cooling treat for your pup in liquid form! Once you’ve blended all the ingredients, simply pour it into a bowl.
Do you make your own dog food or dog treats? Please, please share them with us! It’s time to show commercial dog food manufacturers that we do NOT want that crap in our dog food by voting with our feet; buying responsible, natural dog food and making our own.
