Got a new puppy that's always looking for a snack? We've compiled a few of our favorite puppy-approved recipes that are healthy, great for training, and are easy to whip up, even with a rambunctious pup on your hands!

Puppy Training Treats:

Ingredients:
2.5 cups whole wheat flour
2 large eggs
2/3 cup pumpkin purée (canned or fresh)
3 tablespoons peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Add all the ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment, mix until combined. If it's a little dry, add some water. If it's wet, add a little more flour.
  3. Knead the dough together on a clean surface and roll it out really thin (between 1/8-1/4 inch thick).
  4. Cut squares and continue rolling/cutting until all the dough has been used. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. It may take longer to bake them until crunchy, depending on how thin/thick you rolled the dough and the size of the treats.

No Bake Dog Treats:

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sweet potatoes, softened

Directions:

  1. Using a flat beater or dough attachment if you have one, combine all 3 ingredients in a mixing bowl until well incorporated into a dough. Tip: lightly mash the potatoes with a fork before mixing.
  2. Spoon dough into individual molds, gently pressing with the back of the spoon or your fingers to make sure it's evenly filling out the shape of the mold. You can also roll the dough into small balls if you don't have a mold!
  3. Allow the molds to rest in refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes to firm up before removing each treat.
  4. These protein-packed treats store well refrigerated in an airtight container for up to one week and for extended periods when frozen in zipper bags.
