Our dog Toby is a very important part of our family. That means we like to include him in family activities, including parties and backyard BBQs! That's how I came about creating this easy Dog Treat Dip Recipe that I found out he LOVES on top of Old Mother Hubbard Dog Treats!
What's your favorite part of a BBQ party? Of course I love that I get to spend time outdoors with family and/or friends, but when it comes to food I LOVE the appetizers! Give me a yummy 7-layer-dip, creamy onion dip or even good old salsa, along with a bowl of chips, and I'll be happy.
I figured that if I love dip so much then Toby would probably like it too. The only tricky part was deciding what to put into it.
For inspiration, I turned to Old Mother Hubbard All-Natural Dog Snacks. The treats are special in that they use only all-natural ingredients. To preserve those natural flavors, each biscuit is slowly oven-baked. It's obviously a great way to make treats since Old Mother Hubbard’s has been around since 1926!
I recently ordered two flavors of Old Mother Hubbard All-Natural Dog Snacks from Walmart: P-Nuttier Dog Biscuits and Original Assortment Dog Biscuits. While Toby likes them all, the P-Nuttier are definitely his favorite. And that's saying a lot because he isn't usually a treat-hungry dog. He will chose a toy over a treat any day!
While Toby is happy to eat the treats straight out of the bag, I was determined to give him his own party food by making a dip for his dog biscuits. Since I wanted it to be dog-friendly with only natural ingredients, like Old Mother Hubbard, I decided to use only two ingredients: plain Greek yogurt (with no sugar or flavors) and banana.
Peanut butter is an optional ingredient in this recipe. If you choose to include it, be sure to use an all-natural peanut butter than contains ONLY peanuts. If you want to make your own, you can find our natural peanut butter recipe here.
Dog Treat Dip Recipe
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp natural creamy peanut butter (Optional)
How to Make Dog Biscuit Dip:
Thoroughly mash the banana. Mix in the yogurt (and peanut butter if using) and stir until well blended.
Isn't that easy! Since Toby doesn't quite have the paw dexterity to serve himself, I just dunk a biscuit in the dip and feed it to him. He usually takes a few licks at the dip itself before devouring the whole biscuit and the rest of the dip together.
- 1/2 banana
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp natural creamy peanut butter (Optional)
- Thoroughly mash the banana.
- Mix in the yogurt (and peanut butter if using) and stir until well blended.
