Before we get started, here’s a little helpful info to show you why making your own dog treats with CBD oil is so much better than buying them.
Why Making Your Own Dog Treats Is Best
CBD cookies for dogs are meant to improve their well-being, but feeding your dogs store-bought treats, or CBD treats intended for human consumption, can be dangerous and even fatal.
Some treats made for humans contain sweeteners or flavorings that are toxic to dogs, like xylitol, and other CBD treats meant for dogs may be highly processed or contain ingredients that your dog is allergic to.
Making your own DIY CBD dog treats from home allows you to know exactly what’s in them, so you can be sure they’re safe and healthy for your canine companion.

Benefits of CBD for Dogs
CBD is good for dogs much in the same way that it’s good for people. With so many health benefits for their bodies and minds, it’s a supplement that can benefit any dog through every stage of life. Here are some benefits to look forward to for your furry best friend:
- Decreases anxiety such as separation anxiety in dogs
- Offers pain relief for a variety of conditions, including joint pain
- Improves sleep quality
- Reduces nausea
- Improves cancer-related symptoms
- Aids in relief of stomach discomfort
As you can see, the list goes on. Dogs are incredibly receptive to CBD, as their brains house more cannabinoid receptors than humans. So, without further ado, let’s get into the recipe for how to make CBD dog treats.
How To Decarb Weed
What You Will Need
- Pet-safe CBD oil extract (we recommend making your own using a CBD weed strain)
- 3 cups quick-cook oats
- 1 cup cooked pumpkin
- ½ cup natural peanut butter (make sure this is xylitol-free)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup beef broth (sodium-free)
- 1 large mixing bowl
- Baking tray
- Baking paper
- Mixing spoon
Step 1: Preheat Oven & Prep Tray
Start off by preheating your oven to 325°F (160°C) and placing a piece of baking paper on your baking tray outside of the oven.
Step 2: Blend & Mix
Next, blend your cup of cooked pumpkin into a puree and pour it into your mixing bowl. Add in about 2 ½ cups of your oats, peanut butter, coconut oil, and beef broth before mixing thoroughly.
Note: You can blend up your oats as well for a smoother dog treat finish.
Step 2: Thicken With Oats
If your mixture feels too runny, slowly stir in the rest of your oats until the batter drips off of the spoon without losing its shape.
Step 3: Measure Onto Tray
Use a spoon to measure out about a tablespoon of mixture at a time onto your baking paper. You want the mixture to drop off the spoon and hold its shape.
Step 4: Bake & Dose
Place your tray into the oven and bake for about 30 minutes for chewy CBD cookies for dogs, or up to an hour for a more crunchy result.
Once baked to perfection, remove from the oven and drop your preferred dosage of CBD drops onto each cookie while they cool. The oil should soak right in and you’ll have a very accurate dosage for your dog.
