You wouldn’t necessarily know I’m a crazy dog lady by looking casually at photos of my house, but there are treat jars all over. I believe in positive reward training, so I’m always on the lookout for healthy dog treats, like Supreme Source®. Many years ago, when my kids were small, I thought a plastic jar with paw prints all over it was cute. But as I’ve grown older, my decorating ideas have changed. My favorite crafty project is creating treat jars.
Because training my dogs is “a work in progress” I need to have the treats easily accessible, but having them out isn’t my favorite look. Theo and Sophie are tall enough to counter surf if left alone long enough. Neither of them can be trusted with a bag of treats.
I bought this green crock on sale, but it didn’t have a lid. I knew I wanted it for dog treats, so I brainstormed a little and came up with a plan.
Wood Disc (you can purchase pre-cut ones in craft stores or cut your own)
Box cutter or Exacto knife
Drawer pull/knob (and drill)
Paint or stain
Cut or buy wood to fit.
Sand if needed.
To determine the diameter of cork seal: measure the inside diameter of the container approximately 1/4 inch down (or the thickness of the cork) A compass works well for this type of measurement. Alternatively, you can see if you have a bowl or plate that fits inside at the right depth and trace that. (That method worked for me.)
Cut cork with a box cutter or Exacto knife.
If adding a handle, drill hole in the center of wood and cork.
Stain or paint lid (optional.)
Assemble lid. Since my hands are pretty small, I wanted a knob for easier access, but you can just glue the cork to the wood if you want.
Fill with delicious treats!
I’m picky when it comes to what I feed my dogs, so I was happy to learn about Supreme Source® grain-free dog food and treats.
All of their products are grain free (no corn, soy, or wheat!) which means even Nelly can eat them. Not only are they grain free, but they are also made without artificial flavors or coloring in small batches in the USA.
My dogs love both the biscuits and the soft treats. The soft treats only have 3 calories. Both are easy enough to break into smaller pieces if needed.
