Pepper’s Homemade
Dog Training Treats Recipe

These homemade dog training treats are really easy to make, and they are loaded with good human grade ingredients that are good for your dog.

The recipe for Pepper’s training treats is the first one that I ever made. I’ve tweaked it a few times over the years and this is the tried and true homemade dog treats recipe that developed.

The treats are named for Pepper, who was our miniature schnauzer when I first started making treats for dogs.

I started making them, just to do something special for Pepper. The first time that I made them, she just loved them!

Pepper's Homemade Dog Training Treats

Pepper has been gone for over 10 years now, but her memory lingers on. She loved these dog biscuits, and looked forward eagerly to getting one--Her appreciation always made the effort worthwhile!

Chances are that your dog will love them too!

Pepper's Dog Biscuit Recipe



  • Combine all the ingredients and mix until they form a ball.
  • Cut into chunks of dough that will be more manageable for you to handle. This is a lot of dough, so you won’t be able to work with it all at once!
  • Roll each chunk of dough into a ¼” thick sheet.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut (roll the pizza cutter) the dough into squares that are ¾-1” wide.
  • Let the squares rise for about ½ hour while your oven comes up to 300 degrees F.
  • Bake the squares for 45 minutes and then let them completely dry in the oven after you turn it off—overnight. Make sure that you check the training treats while they are baking, because if your oven is a little hotter than it’s supposed to be—the treats can get too dark.

Homemade Training Treats as Gifts

I used to give these training treats as gifts at Christmas to all of Pepper’s cousins and friends. She enjoyed visiting when we took the gifts to her buddies.

Decorative tins will help them to look festive and keep them fresh at the same time!

If you give these training treats as a gift, it's a nice touch to enclose the recipe for the dog biscuits, right along with the dog treats, so the recipient can make them later. That way, the gift literally lasts forever!

By the way, if you substitute water for the chicken broth, you can give these dog training treats to a dog who is on a vegetarian dog food diet.

Store your dog training treats in a Good Dog cookie jar for up to a year (if they last that long).
