If you wash your dog(s) half as often as we do, then you still spend a fortune on dog shampoo. I found this recipe on a couple of different websites... I just tried it out on our dogs and it worked great (of course that's just my opinion, you'd have to ask the dogs for the definitive answer).
My little dog who is very fussy loves these homemade cookies, although the recipe calls for 2-3 tbsp brown sugar you could always add a wee bit more if desired. These make a wonderful Christmas present for doggies, purchase a cheap doggie bowl, fill with baked dog cookies then wrap in coloured paper, I have given these out many times at the holidays to friends that have dogs, oh and my two kittys love them too ;-)
I find that all dogs seem to like peanut butter...you can add anything you want to the mixture as long as theres the peanut butter! Be sure to turn biscuits over half way through, we don't want dark bottoms, do we now?!!!
I made these one year for a fundraiser bake sale for the local animal shelter... I figured, it's a bake sale, why not animal treats? They're not hard to make, and your pooch will love them. NOTE: these are not intended as people food.
You can also attach a dog bone shaped biscuit cutter with a pretty ribbon to this jar mix..will make a 1 pint gift...to yield about 36 biscuits...makes a nice gift for a friend who is adopting a new member of the family..
