It makes sense to first cover the list of foods and treats never to give your husky, or any dog for that matter.

Whether it’s because it’s toxic to dogs or causes stomach issues or allergies, these items have been well researched and it has been proven you need to avoid giving your dog the following:

Chocolate, Alcohol, Grapes and Raisins, Dairy Products, Milk, Raw Eggs, Sugary Food, Salty Food, Garlic and Onions, High Fatty Meat Trimmings, Peaches and Plums, Avocado, Cooked Bones, Tea or Coffee, Chewing Gum, Candy, Toothpaste, Baked Goods, Yeast, Macadamia Nuts.

But of course! like always, there’s speculation and controversy around this topic and some people have different opinions. It’s strongly advised to follow this research-based information if you’re unsure.

Homemade healthy treats (quick and easy)

Blueberry Oat Biscuits (homemade)

Try this super quick and easy recipe that will have your husky drooling over. This will be a great motivator during training sessions and for times when he deserves a treat.

What you need:
1 small pack of blueberries
1 cup of quick cook oatmeal
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of coconut oil

Directions:
1. Set your oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients thoroughly.
3. Empty the mixture onto a baking tray.
4. Cook for 20 minutes.
5. After 20 minutes take out the cooked biscuit slab, let it cool and break into small chunks!

Fresh blueberries contain a plethora of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, some of the vitamins include A, B, C, E, and K. In fact, you’ll notice that blueberries are a common ingredient in a lot of dog food and dog treats.

Oats are a great source of carbohydrates and act as a mixer for the treats. This is particularly good if your husky has a wheat allergy.

The egg will add a healthy boost of protein to the treat!

Chicken Broth Biscuits (homemade)

Get a mop, because your floors will be dribbled on. This protein-packed SUPER tasty treat will be a great reward for your husky during training or any time he deserves something delicious.

⭐What you need:
2 cups of whole wheat flour (use regular flour or oats if your husky has a wheat intolerance)
50 grams of fresh chicken.
1 cup of water.
1 large egg.
1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a saucepan, pour 1 cup of water and bring to the boil.
3. Add 50 grams of fresh chicken and 1/2 teaspoon of salt
4. Boil until the chicken is fully cooked (15-25 minutes, always check inside)
5. Separate the broth from the chicken, set aside.
6. Shred up the boiled chicken into tiny pieces.
7. Mix all remaining ingredients (flour and egg) in a large mixing bowl and add the broth and chicken bits.
8. Pour mixture onto a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes.
9. Let the biscuit slab cool and break into small chunks

Chicken is very easy digesting so if your husky is sick, it’s one of the best options to go for without further upsetting his stomach.

Try not to give your husky too much because his usual dog food will also contain protein. Having the right balance is important so don’t throw this off by going crazy with chicken treats!

Peanut Butter Biscuit Chunks (homemade)

peanut butter dog treat

Let’s start this by clarifying that dogs can eat peanuts. In fact, peanuts are not actually a nut, they’re considered a legume which is classed as an edible seed. source. Huskies find peanut butter to be super tasty so making this homemade treat will go down very well with your husky.

What you need:
2 cups of flour or oats. Oats are a great alternative
1/2 peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 cup of water. If you need to add more, that’s ok!

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a large mixing bowl
2. Create a lump of dough
3. Break into small bite-size chunks and place evenly on a baking tray
4. Bake for 20 minutes or golden brown.
5. Let cool down

Two important points to make about peanut butter... Always use unsalted natural peanut butter because other shop-bought peanut butter has preservatives and a very high salt content. Do not give too much peanut butter due to the high-fat content. Huskies especially have sensitive stomachs and fat is harder to digest so please keep this in mind.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Banana Biscuit Balls (homemade)

This is a super nutritious and tasty treat for your husky. As confirmed by PETMD Cinnamon is completely safe to give to dogs and contains many antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties as well as counteracting the effects of diabetes. source

What you need:
1 cup of flour
1 cup of water
1 egg
1 banana
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 cup of mashed fresh pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mash the pumpkin and banana to a pure texture
3. Mix all remaining ingredients together in a mixing bowl
4. Add water as needed to make the dough workable
5. Separate dough into small balls evenly on a baking tray
6. Bake for 25 minutes until hard. Watch for burning.

The pumpkin provides great fiber to help your husky’s digestive system.

Huskies, in particular, tend to have sensitive stomachs and digestive issues so a boost of fiber will definitely be needed.
Bananas are a great alternative to high fatty treats and foods.

They provide a boost of potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. Bananas do contain sugar so this treat should be given in moderation, perhaps consider using just half a banana in the mix. This depends on how frequently you wish to give this treat to your fluffy friend.

Beef Oregano Carrot Biscuits (homemade)

A meaty treat for meat lovers! Sounds delicious right? Remember, this is for your dog, not you!

Oregano is safe for dogs and provides excellent support for the digestive tract. Oregano also contains antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and, antiparasitic properties source

What you need:
1 cup of flour
1 cup of beef broth (used the stock leftover from whenever you cook fresh beef for your family)
1 carrot
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
2. Remove the skin from the carrot and chop into very small pieces
3. Use 1 cup of leftover beef broth from your Sunday dinner
4. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl
5. Separate dough into small circles and place evenly on a baking tray
6. Cook for 30 minutes making sure not to burn the biscuits

If you want to add in real beef you can do this too, just use a small amount and spread it out evenly in the mixture.

Remember that whenever you make a meat-based treat you need to be aware of protein levels as your husky’s regular food will contain adequate protein already.

Important things to remember

All dog treats will have some bad reviews due to personal experiences. Every husky is different and your husky may dislike some treats that other huskies love.

It’s important to know your own husky. If you are aware of allergies or foods your husky cannot eat, then make sure you avoid these ingredients when either buying treats or when you make them yourself.

Remember the nutritional value of these treats, are they fatty? are they high in protein? These things will affect your husky’s overall health over time.

Be aware that giving him treats throughout the day could mess up his appetite for the scheduled eating times. Huskies, in particular, don’t have a very big appetite to begin with.

The best time to give your husky treats is when training. Treats are a luxury and by limiting them to training sessions, your husky will be more attentive and will ultimately be trained more efficiently.
