Brandon and I are not the only two producing plastic waste in this house, my dog (Shadow) does too! Reducing your pet’s plastic footprint in some ways is easy (try biodegradable poo bags!). But when it comes to dog food it can be hard. Not many of us have the time or the funds to make our own dog food. It helps to buy pet food in giant bulk bags that will last you for months (Shadow is currently chowing on Canyon Creek). Last year we started making our own dog treats. The ingredients are cheap and they take about 30 minutes to make! Give ‘em a try:
What you will need:
1/2 cup ground meat (I used lamb from the butcher at Whole Foods, Turkey would work too)
1/2 cup shredded sweet potato
2 cups flour
Preheat your oven to 350 :O)
Yes, obsessed. He covets them more than any other store bought treat in the house. I guess Brandon and I are not the only ones who like fresh food! These treats will keep for a week in the refrigerator. We put ours in the freezer where you can keep them for up to 2 months. Shadow loves them frozen too!
Do you have any pet recipes you use for your fuzzy friends?
