Bonus – Fresh Apple
One more, bonus, idea for giving your dog apples. The easiest way is to just give them a piece of fresh apple.
Every time I have an apple, Luna and Morgan are sitting right there, waiting for theirs. I don’t even need to have started cutting the apple. Just getting one from the fridge, washing it, and sitting down with a paring knife tells them it’s time for an apple.
There is no eating in peace once the apple comes out. I MUST share it (at least I’m pretty sure that’s what they are thinking 🤣).
The disadvantage to giving them raw apples is that you can only do it when you plan on eating the rest yourself.
Homemade apple dog treats can be made in advance and last much longer than a cut apple.
New to making homemade dog treats?
If you’re new to making homemade dog treats, there are a few things to remember.
First, make sure to double-check that all ingredients are safe for your dog. This is especially important if your dog has allergies or food sensitivities.
Second, start with an easy recipe. The fewer ingredients and the fewer steps, the easier it will be to make.
Third, remember that dogs have different taste buds than us. What seems to be plain to you is absolutely the best to them. And if your dog is anything like mine, the treat is gone so fast you wonder how they even tasted it in the first place.
