I thought this would be a fun project for my 11 year old step daughter tonight. Does anyone have recipes to share? I got this one from here: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Ranch/1011/dog.htm I was surprised at all the recipes with garlic in them...isnt that bad for dogs? We are gonna try this one...because it looks easy...lol Peanut Butter Puppy Poppers contributed by Nicole Curran, owned by a pug in Delaware 2 cups whole-wheat flour 1 tbsp. baking powder 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth) 1 cup milk Preheat oven to 375'F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container. --- This is the original recipe, but I have found the cookies burn easily. Off to Petsmart to find bone shaped cookie cutters!
good idea! Sorry I do not make my own treats. I just buy them. Let me know how they turn out. Do they really have cookie cutters for pets? how cute! If they turn out well, you can make x-mas gifts to all your friends dogs! Good idea. will copy and paste link and ingredient lists.
Shadow...I've asked your to share your recipes before, or all they all top secret for when you become a famous dog treat chef. Aisha...I'm gonna look at Petsmart tonight for the cutters. I will let you know how they turn out.
Just got back from PetSmart, no doggie cookie cutters. I did find a pack of various size hearts at the grocery store though that we are gonna use. This is typical of me...go to PetSmart for cookie cutters and come out with...a booda bone, teething toy, sterilized beef bone, pink hooded sweatshirt, and a spiked collar (hubby had to make up for pink sweatshirt...lol) Bella had a blast though she looooves kids and got petted galore. =)
Well we made them and they were so easy! I doubled the recipe and it made quite a few. My 11 year old stepdaughter did most of the work. I didnt time them though because we used tiny 1 inch heart cutters. They didnt spread out and get wider, only puffed up and got fat. Took about 10 mins. Bella has a new favorite I think. After hubby gave her one making her "shake" first. She kept putting her paw up and "shaking" the air for more. =)
BellasMommy: Try Good Dog Express (I don't remember the website, just try googling it). I recently bought a small set of 6 cookie cutters: -fire hydrant -heart -bone -sitting puppy -paw -dog house. They also sell ones in shape of different dog breeds, so I also got a Miniature Schnauzer one. I too am going to start making my own for Kiba, and our doggie friends at puppy class. I asked my vet about garlic, cuz I also thought it was bad for them. He said it wasnt, but NO onions. Let me know if you find any good recipes. Also, did your cookies come out real hard? Or are/were they easily to break?
Merico... Thanks so much!! It is http://www.gooddogexpress.com. They have such fun stuff. =) Good to know about the garlic, I swear I read somewhere it was bad. The cookies are pretty soft, but crumble when I break them. They are still a little warm though. I will let you know how they are doing tomorrow.
Lalayla...Is this your Layla? http://www.dogster.com/pet_page.php?i=79653&j=t I need to make a reference page or something to keep up with who belongs to who. I bet she looks sooo cute in it! I have a red hoodie from Petco, but the hood doesnt look right when its on her. I think new pictures are in order soon. =)
Yea, that's her. Pink is definately her color. I've got to get something warmer for the cold weather, coming, though. Got any pics of Bella in her duds? and yea, the hoods don't work unless your dog doesn't need to see. lol
Layla is precious =) My babysitter when I was little had a Shih Tzu. If I ever get a small dog, I think those are my favorites. Here is Bella in her red hoodie...see how you cant even tell there is a hood? http://www.dogster.com/?75039
