Homemade treats can last anywhere from a few to six months, depending on how well you keep them cold and how close you refrigerate them. To keep your dog’s food fresh, your pup’s treats should not be frozen. The best choice for hot dogs is to use dehydrated kibble. This process works a lot better then homemade dog treats, as you could use food that’s been dehydrated for a week. You can also put in food that’s been left out for 3 days and you’ll be able to pick up a good portion if you’re going for a long time, and you can get into the habit of using something that you will keep longer.
Homemade dog treats contain fat and fiber, you’ll know it when you see it. It’s just a little bit of fat that you want to leave out of your treats, and that’s the best thing you can do.
How to store homemade dog treats
Once you’ve got your homemade kibble or other homemade treats, store them away from light so they’re not on display. In fact, keeping homemade dog treats away from light means you’ve given yourself the best chance of avoiding heatstroke or fire. Once you put your new homemade dog food on you can use it, no matter how cold it gets, there’s no need for refrigeration when you’re eating. You can just put your new treats in a dish with water on the side, and you can put the food in an empty dish and heat it on hot stovetop! You can also have an oven on the stovetop to give your homemade treats the same treatment.
Homemade dog treats can also have a shelf life of from a few days to up to a week, depending on how well you keep them cold. To give yourself a better shelf life, store your homemade treats in a fridge and keep a little bit in there, or you can let them sit in a container with no container. For an even longer shelf life, you can put your homemade treats in a large freezer bag and freeze it for up to about one month. Once you have some homemade treats you can put them out in the garden or a shady spot so they can stay cool. For shorter shelf lives, just make sure the treats don’t get too hot when you’re eating or storing them so you’ll be ok when you come back to them. Once they’ve had a few days to cool off, then simply let them sit outside, and you won’t have to worry about them
