please consult your vet before changing your pets diet. This recipe origionally called for 1 tbsp of garlic powder. garlic is OK in small amounts but consult your vet before adding garlic to your pets diet. the serving amount is just a guess
Who can resist those pleading eyes, that heart-wrenching cry, that drooling mouth? (Well, two out of three is pretty motivational to me.) Return the love to that dog who loves you unconditionally and tell him/her BONE APPETITE from me! Preparation time is approximate. Makes roughly 1-1/4 pound dry dog biscuits.
I got this recipe from the trainer of my dog's puppy obedience class.
It's so easy and both my dog and cat love them.
For some reason this seems to only work with chicken hot dogs. It does not work with beef.
I 'rn out of dog biscuits and having 3 doggies I needed some fast. 2 @ are recently rescued so treats for training are vital. I looked up several recipes but missed 1 or more ingredients in most. Here is what I came up with and all 3 gobbled them up and are waiting as I type near the stove for batch 2.
Minimal fat for the dogs and super easy and inexpensive for me.
edited 2/11 seeoption below. My Sassy Girl needs to lose a few pounds like mama so I was always breking up these bisuits to meet her needs and be safe. Therefore I rolled them and used a pizza cutter to make 1/1 in squares. Now Sassy can enjoy several per day and not broken down. I

The number of treats this recipe makes depends on the size of the cutouts.
*** Note: Regarding garlic and dogs: Many dogs enjoy the taste of garlic and it's a natural flea repellent. A small bit of cooked garlic should not be toxic. However, according to the American Animal Hospital Association, raw and spoiled garlic is toxic and potentially fatal to dogs. Consult with your veterinarian before using and use in small quantities.***
You can dehydrate your own chicken for you dogs at a fraction of the cost of commercial chicken jerky. I found the method on expertvillage.com. Edited to add: Well, here's a great example why you shouldn't make a recipe public until after you've tried it. I've now made the recipe (after it was reviewed and found to be in need of a much longer cooking time) and the instructions have now been corrected.

These are packed with parsley to make your dog's breath smell great and they boast a stack of vitamin C and iron as well. My dog LOVES them. Sometimes I substitute pumpkin for the carrot. The water used will vary for every batch. Taken from Australia's Dr Harry's recipe.
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 :)
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.
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".
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.
