Give The Gift of Healthy Dog Treats #NaturalBalance

I always get really excited after Halloween because I know it means the holidays are right around the corner!  The holidays are such a fun time.  I love to decorate the house inside and out, shop for just the right Christmas trees; one inside and one on the front porch, visit family and friends, and do all the fun holiday activities around town.  One of the things I really enjoy is making homemade holiday treats for my family and friends.

A homemade treat jar filled with Natural Balance treats makes a great gift!

I am being compensated for helping spread the word the word about Natural Balance Treats, but Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Natural Balance is not responsible for the content of this article.

A hand crafted treat jar is the perfect gift for dog loving friends and family members, it shows you care about them and their precious pooch!  It's a truly personal gift, hand crafted by you specifically with their dog in mind.  You don't need to spend hours in the kitchen baking homemade dog treats, you can create a DIY (Do It Yourself) treat jar filled with healthy dog treats from Natural Balance® Pet Foods!  Natural Balance has a wide selection of healthy treats for dogs you can fill your treat jar with. 

My treat jar was easy to make.  A trip to the craft store and some delicious Natural Balance treats was all I needed for this project.

The yummy Natural Balance dog treats and supplies for my DIY treat jar

I chose a plastic container with a tight seal on the lid, it's not breakable and it will keep the treats fresh.  I decorated my jar with holiday and pet related embellishments.  I use a lot of stick-on embellishments in my DIY projects, they make things much easier and there's no need for messy glue guns!  I love bling and I wanted a rhinestone bone or paw on the jar.  I bought strips of rhinestones but I have to admit, they were not easy to cut!  That's why my bone isn't exactly perfect.  But that's what makes it personal right!?  Perfection is not the goal, I just wanted it to be thoughtful and heartfelt.

A treat jar hand crafted with love and filled with healthy Natural Balance dog treats you've selected for their dog's unique personality will make anyone feel special.  It will look great in their home and make their dog drool with anticipation of tasty rewards!


My dogs were so excited about all the yummy Natural Balance treats we got!
Icy and Phoebe were so excited about the yummy Natural Balance treats we got for my DIY treat jar.  I hate to break it to them that the treat jar is a gift for our neighbor's dog!

DOG TREATS SHOULD TASTE GREAT BUT THEY SHOULD BE HEALTHY TOO!

> Natural Balance Treats are made with premium-quality proteins and don't contain any artificial ingredients or colors. 

> I love that Natural Balance offers a wide variety of treats that come in different sizes, types of treats, and flavors.

These are the delicious, healthy Natural Balance dog treats I filled my treat jar with:

Grain free Natural Balance Dental Chews

Belly Bites - Delicious grain free semi moist treats, Chicken & Legume formula.







Natural Balance Burger Bites look just like grilled burgers!

Natural Balance Mini Rewards dog treats have only 5 calories each!
Mini Rewards - These delicious treats are small and have only 5 calories!  My dogs love the duck flavor.  I like treats this size, they're great for rewarding and motivating my dogs during training sessions without adding too many calories.






My dog raiding the dog treat jar I made for a friend's dog!  She couldn't resist!
Oh No!!  It looks like someone's raided the treat jar I made for our neighbor's dog, Cooper.  Oh well, I guess I'll need to make another treat jar!
