I used to! But once I had my kids, just found myself too busy.
I would still try and make them when I had time, in big batches after my first, because my boxer is allergic to EVERYTHING.
But then I found a store nearby that sells homemade cookies for 10c a piece (big cookies).
Yep, I do. My Boxer is allergic to many things, including gluten so I make homemade gluten free dog biscuits. My chicken jerky I buy at Costco, but I make homemade beef jerky for my German Shepherd (my Boxer is allergic to beef so none for him).
I have a few, but I don't have time to post them right now. I know I've posted them previously so you can either do a search on the forum for them, or I will post them when I get a chance sometime this week.
You guys can do a search on this forum. I've posted them in the past. Unfortunately, with my medical issues and procedure coming up on Thursday (I have to be put under general anesthesia for it in the hospital), plus prep on Wednesday and still working 40 hours a week despite major medical issues, I just don't have the time to find them and post them right now. I'll do it when I get a chance (but it'll probably be a week or two) or you guys can do a search and find ones i've posted in the past.
My idea of a homemade treat is smearing peanut butter on a rawhide for the dogs. Remind them what they're supposed to be chewing on.
I'd encourage you to nix the rawhide as they are extremely dangerous for dogs and pose a high risk of intestinal infections as well as obstructions for them (both of which can kill them). Switching to natural bully sticks and/or raw meaty bones would be a safer and healthier way to go.
The only homemade treats we make for our dogs are cupcakes. I get carrot cake mix that has real carrot shreds in it, and bake it in the cupcake pans that are tiny cupcakes. Once they're cool I put fat free cream cheese on top, plus chopped bacon. Huge hit at our house, though we usually only make them for the dogs' birthdays.
