Making homemade dog treats can be time consuming, but no-bake dog treats are quick and easy. Making this homemade recipe allows you to control the amount of protein in your dog’s snacks. Just be sure to consult with your veterinarian so that you know exactly how much protein your dog will need each day.
Combine the flaxseed, oats and peanut butter in a mixing bowl. As you can see in my video, the dough is pretty malleable. However, if you feel like you need to add a little bit of water to make the dough come together, you can.
Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until the dough reaches the proper consistency. Roll tablespoon sized dough balls, and place them on a parchment paper-lined pan.
Oil your hands if necessary to avoid having the dough stick to your fingers. Place the no-bake treats in the refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 minutes before feeding the treats to your dog.
After 30 minutes in the refrigerator or freezer, you can move the treats to a sealed container or zipper-seal baggie. They will last in the refrigerator for 5-7 days or up to 3 months in the freezer.
