If you have a favorite dog treat that you make, share the recipe with me. I'd like to do some homemade dog treats. I have found several good recipes online, but am not sure if they'd turn out well or would be a waste. Thought I'd ask for some personal tried and tested favorites. Thanks.
http://www.bullwrinkle.com/index.html?Assets/Recipes/Recipes.htm~indexmain I went and did a quick google search for you this site looks like they have alot of recipes.hope it helps.I have never made homemade teats for my dogs but I have bioled water with beef bullion flavorings in it and froze them in icetrays and my dogs love them on hot days..
I had a recipe lying around here but can't seem to find it. If I do, I will post it for you. Let me tell you, my husband really enjoyed the dog cookies. That's no lie. He ate almost half of them. He thought they were really good. Only my husband would do something like that - LOL
the place that I used to work at was right beside a place that made natural doggie biscuts. the guys that I worked with would go over there every morning and ask for some and they would munch away all day eating them. those were the best smelling doggie treats!!!!! they smelled like a combination of peanut butter and oatmeal...
LOL LOL LOL...too funny! I guess some guys, like dogs, will eat most anything. I bought a bag of homemade goodies today at a festival in town. My dogs love them. They are squares, scored into 4 breakable parts, and you can use them for training, etc. Nice size for my overweight labrador who needs to lose a few, but still wants a goody.
1 3/4 cups flour 1/4 cup sesame seeds 1/2 cup brown sugar 12 tbs. butter 1/2 cup ground walnuts 1 egg yolk 1/2 cup vanilla extract 2 tbs. toasted wheat germ Combine ingredients, knead until thoroughly blended. Roll out till 1/2" thick. Cut into shapes or just squares. Bake at 375F on ungreased cookie sheet for 12-15minutes. Cool. Store in airtight container. Keeps 2 weeks.
Hi folks. I've just joined the forum and at the top of the list is one of my favorite subjects - dog cookies. I've been making home made cookies for about a year now and my guys (GRs) will turn their noses up to bought treats. Up side is: dogs love them and we know what the ingredients are. Downside: ever try climbing over 2 GRs in a tiny kitchen while baking - Oh but their sparkling eyes make the clime worth it. My base is: 2 cups flour - 2 cups liquid - knead in more flour until you have a dough that can be rolled out. Flour: Ive used potatoe flour and rice flour for dogs with wheat intolerance; I've used rye flour just for a change. For a little extra fibre: I've added Red River Cereal, rolled oats, or cornmeal. Liquid:(in a blender makes it easy) base is 1 1/2 cups water, 1 egg (including the shell - good source of calcium), 1/4 canola oil, and the flavour of the day?? Favorite flavors: Peanut Butter (2-3 TBSP) Tuna (1 can) or Salmon Banana (1 fresh bananna chopped up) - don't through out those over ripe bananas - freeze them for cookies later. Cheese & Garlic (1 cup grated cheese and 3 Tbsp garlic POWDER (not salt) - mix this into the flour not the liquid. Extra special: got a chunk of garlic sausage that's drying out - chop it up and add it in. Apple/Raisin - 1 shreded apple or 4 TBSP of unsweetened apple sauce and 1 cup of raisins. Strawberry - 4 Large cut up strawberries Pumpkin - 4 Tbsp of canned pumplin pie filling Turkey: save those turkey left overs - boil the carcass - strain it well to make sure there are no bones in it - freeze it - replace the water with turkey broth. Bacon: save your bacon grease - 2 TBSP of bacon grease - eliminate the canola oil. I've even used some left over Hot and Sour soup as a base liquid. Pretty much anything goes - great way of getting rid of leftovers from the fridge. Mix the flavors: PeanutButter/Banana; Tuna/Cheese, etc. I bake everything at 375 for about 25-30 minutes. If your dogs like their cookies crispy - turn the oven off after 30 minutes and let the cookies cool in the oven. I make cookies and training bits out of each batch - for the training bits - roll out your dough about 1/2" thick - place on your cookie sheet and score it with a pizza cutter - I usually make them 1/2" x 1/2". Remember - these are fresh baked so they will go moldy - store in air tight containers - or in the fridge. Downside of the fridge: every time the door opens I have 2 GRs looking for a treat! Happy Baking ........... Golden Girl
Here is the recipe to the dog treats that my husband loved so much - LOL 4 cups flour 1 cup olive oil 2 teaspoons minced garlic 2 tablespoons dried garlic 1/4 cup honey 1/2 cup water Preheat oven to 325 degrees, mix ingredience together, roll out then cut cookies, put on greased pan, put in oven till golden brown for approximately 5 to 10 minutes Cook longer if not golden brown.
Hi Brewski Yes - raisins can be toxic to dogs. It is like all things in life - Moderation!! A couple of raisins in a cookie are not likely going to cause harm - a lb of raisins consumed by a small dog will likely make them vilantly ill. Also, the level of toxicity is reduced through cooking. .........Golden Girl
