Easy healthy Dog Treats

Looking for a fun activity to do while social distancing? Gummy treats for your dog! They are healthy, easy and your dog will LOVE them! The ingredients you will need are: 

That's really all you need! I know, it's almost too easy! Get the whole family involved in this fun DIY treat recipe.                            

Gelatin is great for joint support

Our dogs absolutely love these treats, and the best part about them is that they're healthy, low calorie and high in protein. Totally Wags Collagen for Dogs is highly bioavailable and easily digestible. These gelatin gummies are a healthy alternative to other, more calorie dense treats. And as an added benefit, collagen is great for supporting joint health.

If you make our recipe be sure to share a photo or video of your pup enjoying them! Tag us on instagram @WagsforPets.                     

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You’ll need a liquid measuring cup, a dry measuring cup, a saucepan and a mixing spoon. We’re using silicone molds and a dropper, but you can use a sheet pan or a casserole dish. We purchased the gummy bear molds and dropper on Amazon, and the dog bone mold from Michaels

Here are all the tools we gathered to make our Totally Wags gelatin treats

Step 2: Measure

Using the liquid measuring cup, pour ½ cup of cold water into your saucepan. Measure out a heaping ¼ cup of Totally Wags Collagen using the dry measuring cup. Sprinkle the collagen evenly over the water in the saucepan. Let it soak in for about 20 seconds.

Step 3: Heat

Turn the heat on low. Heat and stir until the Totally Wags dissolves, about a minute. Let it cool for a minute, then use the dropper to fill the molds. Or if you are using a sheet pan, pour the liquid into the sheet pan. You will need to work somewhat quickly or the liquid will start to gel in the saucepan. 

*Troubleshooting note: If you have bubbles or foam, you can skim them off or suck them back out with the dropper. They won’t affect the flavor, but if you don’t like the look of them - remove them. When using the dropper, the best way to avoid bubbles is to plunge the dropper deep into the saucepan. Our dogs do not mind the occasional bubble so we pretty much just leave them!

Step 4: Cool

Once the molds (or sheet pan) are full, pop them in the fridge. 

Smaller molds, like the tiny gummy bears, take about 10 minutes to set in the fridge. The cookie sheet will take longer, depending on the density. If you use an 8 x 8 pan - maybe plan on an hour. If you use a 9 x 13 maybe 30 minutes. You will be able to tell if the gummies have set.

Throw your gelatin molds into the fridge.

Step 5: pop them out!

Now carefully pop the gummy treats out of the molds. If you use a cookie sheet, cut them into small squares. Throw them in a zip lock bag and store in the fridge. They should stay good for a week to 10 days. 

Your dog will LOVE them. Try not to give them too many in one day because too much gelatin can cause an upset stomach! Enjoy!
