Trouble Getting Your Dog to Accept CBD? Try These Dog Treats

Though you might burn your toast regularly in the morning, you can still be the world’s greatest chef for your dog. If you’re looking for new ways to ramp up your pet’s treats with synergistic and organic supplements, we have the ultimate guide for healthy CBD dog treat recipes for your furry companion. 

How Much CBD Should I Give My Dog? 

Before we dive into all the goodness, you might be wondering, how much CBD should I give my dog? Finding the right amount for your pet can be tricky. It varies based on your dog’s weight (a small dog probably won’t need as much as a big dog) and what they are taking CBD for. Whatever the case, always start with the smallest serving and work your way up until you find the amount that works for your pet. 

How to Make Healthy CBD Dog Treats

We’ll start by taking it slow with simple recipes that don’t require baking and work our way through some more complex ones for you overachievers. So let’s get started!

1. Adding CBD Oil to Ready-Made Dog Treats

If you have a treat that’s a huge hit with your dog, you can simply add drops of CBD oil to it and let it soak for a minute or two. Of course, not all snacks will absorb CBD well, so you want to make sure the treat is granular. Dry foods and snacks tend to also mask the texture and taste of CBD well, so these types of treats can help your dog easily ingest the supplement.  

2. Creating No-Bake CBD Dog Treat Recipes (With 5 or Less Ingredients)

Simplicity is the best way to go. There’s no oven involved here—you’ll just need a mixer/blender, utensils, and five or less ingredients to be the best owner and pal a dog can ask for. 

Since these are prepared in batches, you’ll have to do the math to make sure you add the right amount of CBD in the recipe. So this means multiplying the number of treats the recipe creates with the number of CBD oil drops your dog needs. That total will be how many drops you’ll need to add to these recipes. Make sure you mix the oil in well to get the right amount in each treat.

CBD Peanut Butter Dog Treats

The great thing about no-bake peanut butter treats is you can either chill or freeze them, so they can last you for a while. 

To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients: 

  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats, divided
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • Desired amount/drops of CBD oil for dogs

Create this delicious peanut butter treat by:

  1. Mixing the pumpkin puree, peanut butter, milk, and drops of CBD oil on medium-high in an electric mixer for one to two minutes or until well mixed. Then, turn your mixer at a low speed while sprinkling in 2 ½ cups of old fashioned oats. 
  2. Using a small cookie scoop to roll the mixture into 1 ¼ to 1 ½ inch diameter balls. This should form about 20 peanut butter balls. Coat the balls with the remaining ½ cup of old fashioned oats. Press them lightly into the balls to make sure that they stick. 
  3. Covering and placing the peanut butter treats in the fridge for about an hour or until they’re firm.  

CBD Frozen Apple Treats

Refreshing and tasty, these CBD frozen apple treats will be the ideal snack for those warm days. This recipe requires only four ingredients: 

  • 2 whole apples
  • 1 cup Greek nonfat plain yogurt
  • A splash of water 
  • Desired amount/drops of CBD oil for dogs

To prepare this frozen treat, you’ll have to: 

  1. Slice the 2 apples into small pieces. Be sure to remove the core and seeds. 
  2. Use a NutriBullet or blender to mix the apples, 1 cup of yogurt, a splash of water, and drops of CBD oil together until they reach liquid consistency. 
  3. Pour the liquid mixture into an ice cube tray. Freeze them for a few hours or until they are hard. 

Please note that CBD oil may change the freezing temperature of the mix, so they might be soft-frozen. If you or your pup isn’t a fan of this texture, you might want to leave them in the freezer for a while.

CBD Berry Bliss Truffle Treats

There’s nothing more blissful than a berry bliss truffle treat for your pup. The word “truffle” might throw you off but don’t worry, this recipe is smooth sailing. 

This recipe requires: 

  • ¾ cup mashed or pureed berries (popular choices are raspberries or blueberries)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • Dried coconut flakes (optional)
  • Desired amount/drops of CBD oil for dogs

To whip up this treat full of bliss, you’ll need to: 

  1. Mash the ¾ cup of berries/pureed berries in a mixing bowl until they reach a smooth consistency, and then mix in the 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and drops of CBD oil. 
  2. Add in the 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and gradually add in the ¼ cup of coconut flour. You’ll want to see how the consistency/texture plays out as you add the flour by increments. You should have a nice sticky dough in the end. 
  3. Press the dough into small bite-sized balls. If you choose to add dried coconut flakes, coat them on the truffle balls.

3. Stepping It Up With Baked Treats

If you’re feeling like a pastry chef and really want to step up your game, we have one CBD dog treat recipe that’ll give your furry friend the ultimate royal treatment. It requires baking, so be sure to proceed with caution. 

Note: Baking ingredients with CBD oil is challenging. When CBD heats up, it evaporates and its compounds start to break down. It’s also hard to really know how much CBD is left in your baked treat. But if you’re willing to take a chance, or if you have plenty of experience baking CBD snacks, then by all means dive right in! It’s generally recommended that baking temperatures be kept at 350 degrees or below.

Baked Sweet Potato and Coconut Oil Dog Treats

Sweet potatoes carry rich fiber and plenty of vitamins and minerals. Toss that in with some CBD oil, and your furry friend will get the spark they need in their endocannabinoid system.  

You’ll need the following ingredients: 

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and cooled
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup coconut oil 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water
  • Desired amount/drops of CBD oil for dogs

An optional ingredient is: 

  • ¼ cup gelatin powder

To prepare this baked treat, you’ll have to: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix until well combined. If needed, add a little extra coconut flour to get a dough consistency that is slightly thinner than Play-Doh.
  3. Form into 1-inch balls and flatten them with your hand. Or, you can flatten the dough with a rolling pin and use cookie cutters to make some fun shapes (maybe paw prints or dog bones).
  4. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes until slightly browned on the edges.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet.

Have Fun With Care

Whatever CBD oil dog treat recipes you decide to try out, it’s important to always be mindful of how many CBD drops you’re adding into the recipe and how many treats you’re giving your dog; you don’t want to give them more than they need. And again, if you and your pet are new to CBD, start small and work your way up. 

Also, always be cautious and picky when you’re purchasing CBD oil for your pet. It’s vital to find reliable CBD brands/products that come from organic and nutrient-rich soil, quality extraction and refinement processes, and legitimate third-party testing labs. So be sure to do your research before making any final decisions.
