I made this treat Jar that will house some healthy and tasty treats for my Dog. You can also make a treat jar like this by following the directions below. Feel free to change the embellishments for a cat if you want.



What you will need:

  • A jar with lid. If you have an empty jar in your pantry like I did, you can use that jar. If you need a jar remember that most Dollar Stores have the Kerr type jars in different sizes. You could even use the large size peanut butter jars- just wash them good anfd remove the label.
  • Pet stickers to embellish. I carry a great stamp set in my online store that will help you label and decorate the jar.(Christmas Scottie #159744)
  • Fabric or Designer Series Paper that you can cover the lid with.
  • A tag. You can use a pre-made one like I did from the Dollar Store or use any label punch or die from your inventory.
  • Pet treats. You can use store bought treats or you can make you own. I have included a recipe below.
  • Adheasive to adhere the jar lid cover and possibly embellishments.

** I printed a picture of my dog for the front of the jar. I took the picture with my phone and printed it with my HP Sprocket Printer.**

Easy Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

I found this recipe on line a few years ago and do not remember who posted the recipe. I think it was from Cully’s Kitchen.

  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour (plus ¼ extra on standby if needed)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.o apply a good coverage of cooking spray.
  3. Place the eggs, peanut butter, and pumpkin in a stand mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium high until well combined (about 2-3 minutes). Reduce mixer speed to low and add the flour a ¼ cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky-add more flour if needed. Dough will separate from the sides of the bowl when ready.
  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead by hand until dough comes together (If your dough is to sticky add a little more flour at this time).
  5. Using a rolling pin roll dough out to a ¼ inch thickness and cut using a cookie cutter into the shapes you want; place on baking sheet. ( I used a cookie cuter that is bone shaped.)
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until edges start to brown. Baking time could vary depending on the size and thickness of the cutout treats.
  7. Once the treats have cooled you can put them in the treat jar.
