Savory and Irresistible: Michelle’s Duck Jerky Dog Treats for Bear

In the vibrant city of Nashville, Michelle Parker and her loyal Chocolate Lab, Bear, share a life filled with adventures and love. One of Michelle’s favorite ways to show her affection for Bear is by crafting delicious homemade treats. Inspired by Bear’s ever-changing preferences and his love for rich, savory flavors, Michelle decided to create duck jerky dog treats. These treats not only satisfy Bear’s taste buds but also keep him excited and engaged with their unique flavor.

The Inspiration Behind Duck Jerky Dog Treats

One day, while strolling through the local farmer’s market, Michelle came across a vendor selling fresh duck meat. She remembered how much Bear loved the duck-flavored treats they had tried before and decided to make her own version at home. With this inspiration, Michelle set out to create a duck jerky dog treat that would be both healthy and delicious.

Crafting the Perfect Duck Jerky Dog Treats

Using high-quality duck meat and a few simple ingredients, Michelle headed to her kitchen to prepare a treat that Bear would find irresistible.

Ingredients for Delicious Duck Jerky Dog Treats:

  • Duck Breast: Rich in protein and essential nutrients.
  • Honey: Adds a touch of natural sweetness.
  • Parsley: Adds a hint of flavor and aids digestion.
  • Olive Oil: Helps keep the jerky moist and flavorful.

The Recipe: Duck Jerky Dog Treats


  • 2 duck breasts
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°F (95°C).
  2. Slice the duck breasts into thin strips, about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the honey, chopped parsley, and olive oil.
  4. Brush the mixture onto the duck strips, ensuring they are well-coated.
  5. Place the duck strips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 2-3 hours, turning halfway through, until the duck jerky is dry and firm.
  7. Allow the jerky to cool completely before serving it to Bear.

Bear’s Enthusiastic Approval

As the rich aroma of duck jerky filled their Nashville home, Bear’s excitement was palpable. His tail wagged furiously, and his eyes followed Michelle’s every move in anticipation. When the treats were finally ready, Bear’s enthusiastic munching confirmed that Michelle had created a hit.

Keeping Bear Engaged with Variety

Understanding that Bear’s preferences can change, Michelle ensures she keeps a variety of treat options to maintain his excitement and engagement. This approach helps introduce new flavors and textures to his diet, making treat time always enjoyable.

Tips for Keeping Treat Time Exciting:

  • Rotate Treats: Regularly change the types of treats to keep Bear curious and interested.
  • Introduce New Ingredients: Occasionally add new, dog-safe ingredients like sweet potatoes or carrots to the recipes.
  • Interactive Treat Dispensers: Use treat-dispensing toys to add an element of fun and mental stimulation for Bear.
