Our dog Max is a big part of our family. He is my daughter’s best buddy and he puts up with my kids laying on him, tugging on him, stealing his spot and that deserves a treat! We had his treats in a bin by the back door and they quickly got hard and were constantly getting spilled because the kids would leave them open. I knew we needed a better spot for the treats and a better container to store them in. I whipped together this adorable DIY dog treat jar and decided to make two because they were so quick and easy. Now Max has a jar for each of his favorite flavor of treats!
This DIY dog treat holder is incredibly easy to create and takes very little time or skill! You’ll need a glass jar (I found a nice selection of them at Walmart near the kitchen essentials), a dog collar which will fit around the neck of your glass jar (the dog collars are in the pet section), small rawhide dog bones (1 per jar), a gel based super bond glue, spray paint to match the metal on the collar (or whatever color you love). I grabbed some dog collars that I liked and brought them with me over to the glass jar section and tried them on a few different jars to get a feel for what looked best.
Begin by putting the dog collar around the neck of the jar and adjusting it to fit snug on the jar. Make sure when you pick your jar and collar that the lid is still able to close with the collar on.
Then spray paint one dog bone for the top of each jar. (obviously the dog is not eating this, it is decoration only)
Once your paint has dried you can use your gel based super bond glue to glue it to the top of your jar. Hold in place for 30 seconds and then allow the glue to set according to package instructions.
Once the glue has dried you are almost done! Now place a chalkboard label on the front of the jar and use a chalk pen to write whatever you’d like on it! The beauty of these labels is that you can wipe it off and change it up whenever you want! Now you are done and you can fill them up with your dog’s favorite treats! Max LOVES the new Nudges® Grillers Chicken and Steak flavors. I filled each jar with one flavor.
I found the Nudges® Grillers at Walmart by the dog treats in the pet section. They have steak or chicken Nudges® Grillers and the Jerky Cuts looked amazing too! Those are sure to find their way into our treat jar at some point too! Check them out on Facebook where you can also grab a coupon right now!
The new Nudges® Grillers are made in the USA with only USA-sourced protein and they use real meat as the #1 ingredient. They use only natural ingredients and these treats look and smell like real food! As soon as I opened the bag Max was drooling! Max is the best family dog and deserves a quality treat!
Max is such a good boy! He will sit and wait until you tell him “okay” and then he will gently take the treat from your hand. He’s been the BEST family pet we could ever ask for. He is getting older now but I believe with all the exercise and quality nutrition he receives, combined with all the love from the kids, that he will live a lot longer!
