Fresh and Fun: Michelle’s Mint Dog Treats for Bear

In the vibrant city of Nashville, where creativity and excitement are part of daily life, Michelle Parker and her Chocolate Lab, Bear, share countless joyful moments. One of the challenges Michelle occasionally faces is Bear’s breath, especially after a fun day of exploring the outdoors. Inspired by the fresh scent of mint, Michelle decided to create mint dog treats that would not only freshen Bear’s breath but also keep him excited and engaged with a variety of treat options.

The Inspiration Behind Mint Dog Treats

During one of their many adventures in Nashville’s beautiful parks, Michelle noticed Bear’s curiosity about the fresh mint growing along their path. Realizing how beneficial mint could be for Bear’s breath, she set out to create homemade mint dog treats that would be both healthy and refreshing.

Crafting the Perfect Mint Dog Treats

Using Bear’s favorite ingredients and the fresh mint from their garden, Michelle headed to her kitchen to create treats that were both delicious and good for Bear’s breath.

Ingredients for Refreshing Mint Dog Treats:

  • Fresh Mint: Known for its breath-freshening properties and digestive benefits.
  • Parsley: Another natural breath freshener that also provides vitamins.
  • Whole Wheat Flour: Provides fiber and helps bind the treats together.
  • Eggs: Adds protein and helps to bind the ingredients.
  • Coconut Oil: Good for skin and coat health and adds a pleasant flavor.

The Recipe: Mint Dog Treats


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup water (as needed)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, chopped mint, and chopped parsley.
  3. Add the egg and melted coconut oil, mixing until well combined. If the dough is too dry, gradually add water until it reaches a workable consistency.
  4. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4-inch thickness.
  5. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the treats into desired shapes.
  6. Place the treats on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the treats are golden brown.
  8. Allow the treats to cool completely before serving them to Bear.

Bear’s Fresh Breath and Excitement

As the delightful aroma of mint dog treats 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 refreshing hit.

Keeping Bear Engaged with Variety

Understanding that Bear’s preferences can change, Michelle ensures she keeps a variety of treat options available 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 apples or carrots to the recipes.
  • Interactive Treat Dispensers: Use treat-dispensing toys to add an element of fun and mental stimulation for Bear.

Conclusion: Fresh Breath and Joyful Moments

Michelle’s journey into making mint dog treats for Bear is a testament to her love and dedication. By carefully selecting ingredients and crafting refreshing recipes, she ensures Bear enjoys his treats while maintaining fresh breath and good oral health.

For Michelle and Bear, each treat is more than just a snack; it’s a moment of joy and connection, a reflection of their vibrant life in Nashville. Their story inspires other pet owners to embrace creativity and care in making treat time special and engaging, ensuring every moment is filled with love and freshness.
