This is a wonderful training treat for dogs. It has the consistency of fudge so you can break off different sized pieces and the dogs can eat them quickly without a mess. It is also "smelly" so your dog can anticipate the treat! You must store it in the refrigerator or freezer.
This recipe is guaranteed to satisfy the pickiest dog. We were advised to feed our puppy dry puppy chow. He would just nibble on it throughout the day. Consequently his outside needs were hard to predict. This recipe was the answer. Our mature dog suddenly developed an appetite for his food, too. Now, both dogs practically inhale this (I feed twice a day), we know when to let them outside, resulting in happier pets and parents! It also provides some extra calcium and protein. If your dog doesn't exercise much, you can use the lighter canned dog food, and the fat free yogurt.
This is what Delicious Living says: "These delicious cookies are a favorite of the many dogs that visit the Licks and Wags Dog Bakery. They provide a hard, crunchy texture that helps maintain healthy teeth." Haven't tried these yet, but just got a puppy, so intend to soon. The recipe only says, "Makes 1 lb".
I adapted this recipe for my dogs because I wanted something relatively low fat (they have to go to the vet pretty soon and I don't want her to call them Snausages again) that they'd like. I didn't want to use dairy products or garlic because of possible adverse effects on the girls. I've tested these out on the girls and they seem to really like them.
I found this recipe on Bullwrinkle.com, and our boy absolutely loved it! I baked it as directed, but used two small jars of beef baby food. After it was baked I trimmed it into a bone shape and "frosted" it with peanut butter... of course I had to put his name on it as well. I did my best to find out if this had been posted here before, but had a hard time... hopefully this is not a double post :)
Simple and wholesome - Rei, my Japanese spitz puppy would beg for these! Use any baby food you like as long as there's no onions in the it (some dogs may be allergic to corn too). BTW if your dog is sensitive to wheat, you can also use brown rice flour although amount may vary. Just mix till u get a slightly sticky dough that you roll into balls with.
This great recipe came from Charlotte McDonald of Greyhound Pets of America in the Orlando area. These wonderful people rescue retired racing Greyhounds. This is a healthy treat that my little dogs love as well.
