For most of my life, I was so not a baker. But when we moved to Puerto Rico, I decided it was a great time to learn! We rescued Roxy & Rico shortly after moving there and finding them on the streets.
What better way to learn than by baking treats for the new dogs, who wouldn’t judge my failures?!
We affectionately call Roxy garbage gut, because she will literally eat anything. Then we have Rico, who is the pickiest street rescue ever.
It’s a bit challenging to find treats that are pleasing to him and healthy enough for Roxy, who has hypothyroidism.
I started searching for the best quick and easy dog treats. Here are some fantastic and healthy simple treats for dogs!
Chickpeas and Sardines Dog Treats
Okay, so while sardines are so not my first choice for a snack, the dogs seem to absolutely love them! Plus, they do have a ton of health benefits. You’ve heard of how great fish oil for dogs can be, right?
Well, sardines are packed full of those healthy omega-3 fatty acids. while still being low in mercury.
This recipe is simple, quick to prepare, and only uses 3 ingredients! That makes it perfect for times when you want to treat your dog but don’t have time to whip together an elaborate snack.
Easy Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe
Pumpkin is one of my favorite ingredients to give my dogs. I regularly drop a spoonful of plain pumpkin into their meals to help their digestive system.
That’s why I knew I just had to share these easy pumpkin treats!
They’re so fast to pull together and my pair absolutely love them!
Spiced Apple Gummy Dog Treats
These spiced apple gummies have such a fun fall vibe, but they’re perfect for any time of year!
With only 3 ingredients, they’re another nice and simple dog treat recipe that your dog will scarf down quickly!
No-Bake Pumpkin Treats
I’m all about that no-bake life when looking for an easy snack for Roxy & Rico. These treats are full of protein and fiber, and they’re so simple!
It has only 5 ingredients, and you might even have them all in your pantry right now.
Just mix in a bowl and chill in the fridge. They’re even tasty enough for us humans to snack on!
Note: When making treats for your dog that use peanut butter, make sure to select a brand that is as natural as possible.
Many brands are including xylitol, a sweetener that is extremely deadly to dogs.
We like Adams Peanut Butter because it’s all-natural and tasty!
Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats
These little bone-shaped treats are just so cute! Plus, they’re nice and easy while still being healthy and tasty for your dog!
Easy Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
Dog biscuits are the most classic type of dog treat. They’re even cuter when you use a fork to make cute little cross-hatches on the top!
These are also made with only 3 ingredients, which I love because it’s so much easier to throw together on a cozy afternoon!

You know that feeling when you pull out a container of ice cream, and all of a sudden you feel intense puppy-dog eyes staring at you?
They know you have good stuff and want some!
Why not whip up a batch of this to keep in the freezer for their very own ice cream party? It’s super easy and good for them, too!

Another tasty treat for hot summer days are these strawberry and apple bites!

Soft Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats
Training treats are hugely beneficial when teaching your dog new skills, especially when you have a food motivated dog!
When treats are full-size, it’s tough to keep your dog’s calorie consumption in check.
These treats can be made into bite-size portions. That makes them perfect for training, without all the preservatives and junk in many commercial dog training treats.
