Supplies for Making DIY Dog Treat Recipes

Okay, so, sometimes you don’t need any supplies other than the basic ingredients, right?  But, a few of these supplies might come in handy or you could pick up some of them and give them as gifts to dog lovers along with your batch of homemade dog treats!

  • Bone shaped cookie cutters:  Sure, dogs don’t care what shape their treats come in but aren’t bone shaped cookie cutters cute anyhow?
  • Dog treat cookbooks: Everyone loves Pinterest but dog treat cookbooks make great gifts for dog lovers, especially if your dog loving friend isn’t Internet savvy.
  • Silicone baking molds:  Sometimes, DIY dog treat recipes aren’t rolled out but pressed into molds.  Silicone baking molds in the shape of paw prints make cute homemade dog treats.
