How to Store your Homemade Dog Treats

Storing your dog treats really depends on how you bake them or if you would like them to last for a long time without refrigeration.

If you want your treats to stay a bit on the softer side, you can let the icing air dry and store them in your refrigerator for 3 - 5 days. Or freeze them for up to 6 months, then store them in the refrigerator after you thaw them and let the icing air dry again.

If you would like your dog treats to be stored without refrigeration, you will need to dehydrate them or leave them in your oven overnight, after you bake and shut the oven off. If you are planning to sell dog treats you need to send them to a lab to check on how much moisture they have. The key to a long shelf is to get rid of as much moisture as you can within reason. (Too little moisture will cause your treats to crack)

Once they are complete, you can add your favorite dog treat icing from Pastries 4 Pets and let them stay out without refrigerating them! Be sure to completely air dry the dog icing prior to stacking or packaging the treats.
