If you enjoy whipping up baked treats, then maybe you’ll also like stirring up a pot of delicious canine cuisine. Whether it’s for your pup’s health purposes or simply because you want them to eat what’s best, this can be a great activity for bakers. And your pooch will benefit as well. More than likely, they’ll be standing at your feet if they’re inside. If not, they’ll be sniffing the air outside, hoping that the wonderful scents have something to do with them. Hopefully, you’ll like the prep involved, the actual task, and the understanding that your fur child is getting a healthy, homemade meal.
Step
1
Find a recipe
There are so many homemade dog food recipes across the Internet; it’s actually pretty overwhelming. Remember: you’re a baker. So, you may even create a recipe of your own. How fun! We do recommend running the recipe by your veterinarian just to assure it’s safe and pawfect for your fur baby.
Step
2
Shop, don't drop
When you lock down the recipe, it’ll be time to scoot to the store. If you have a friend who’s interested in making a batch of homemade dog food along with you, that’s great. Maybe your friend is even a baker as well. This will probably make the process even more enjoyable. Making bulk batches is certainly something to think about.
Step
3
Feeding time at the zoo
When the recipe has been made, it’ll be tasting time. We can almost guarantee that your little buddy is going to love what you’ve prepared for them. They may be a bit unsure at first, but give them time. They may simply need to sniff the contents and warm up to this new mealtime delight!

Cupcakes are out, and pupcakes are in! Didn’t anyone tell you? Well, we’re here to let you know that the dogs have spoken, and these homemade cakes are in high demand. These make really adorable treats for your fur baby on birthdays or adoption days, on holidays, and on those rainy, boring afternoons where everyone needs a little pick-me-up. They’re super easy and fun, and your doggo is going to go crazy over the smell, texture, and taste. They’ll feel so spoiled as they chew the gooey goodness and lick their chops afterward. You might even decide to try one yourself.
Step
1
Shop and gather ingredients
The author's dog likes the recipe that calls for wheat flour, bananas, honey, peanut butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, baking soda, eggs, and greek yogurt. But you can find a variety of pupcake recipes across the web, so do your research. You might also try creating a recipe of your own.
Step
2
Bake and taste
Bake the pupcakes, and allow your dog to have a little taste test before the party. Once they approve, you know you’re well on your way to hosting a successful gathering. If your pooch is looking up at you with those big, sweet, longing eyes after they finish eating, then you know they want another. You’ve done a great job!
Step
3
Share the love
Invite your favorite human friends and puppy pals over for a Pupcake Party. It’ll be the doggie event of the season. You can play some dog-friendly games and allow the fur children to socialize. You might whip up a batch of human cupcakes if your friends prefer a little more sweetness. Cheers for pups and parties! And more cheers for doggo desserts!

Activity description
Where can you encounter some of the best food that exists? At fairs and festivals, of course! Do a little research, and locate some local festivities. It never fails: when people gather together for games, craft shows, trade booths, and contests the delicious food abounds. And if you’re a sophisticated baker (or even an amateur that likes having fun), you should take your dog and scoot over to a festival. You’ll enjoy tasting food and attempting to dissect it. You’ll discover new flavors and be inspired by exciting, new festival treats! Get your tickets soon, and enjoy the day!
Step
1
Choose your festival wisely
First and foremost, make sure that the festival is pet-friendly. You may also prefer a certain season. Fall festivals are really popular, but you’ll also encounter some summer events. Choose the festival that suits you and your four-legged pal. There are festivals that celebrate holidays, plants, people, foods, music and more.
Step
2
Try the baked goods
More than likely, you’ll encounter all kinds of cookies, pies, jams, jellies, cakes, candies, fudge, and the list goes on and on. Enjoy yourself. Share with your dog when appropriate. You’re out and about walking, so consider this a chance to eat as you walk off the calories. Your pup will be there to pull you in every direction. You know we’re right!
Step
3
Enter baking contests or booths
If you have the opportunity to enter a baking contest, you should totally do it! It’ll be a great chance for you to show off your dessert-making skills. Further, if you’re able, try opening a booth of your own. You could even create canine delights. So many people bring their pets to festivals, so a dog-friendly bakery would definitely be a hit!
