I love to make these cookies for my GSD (German Shepherd Dog) Gunnar. He loves them! Funny thing is, the kids like them too...go figure!


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, cheese, garlic & oil.
  3. Knead well, adding water as needed to form stiff dough.
  4. Roll out on floured surface to 1/2" thick, cut into bone shapes.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 or 15 minutes until bottom of cookies are lightly browned. Cool completely on wire rack.

My WFT absolutely LOVES these! I used chicken broth instead of water but my dough was a little hard too, so I added more and it worked out just fine! She knows when I'm making these because of the garlic smell and begs for the dough! Silly dawg.

My DGSs got a new puppy and wanted to make something special for him so we found this and decided to give it a try. It was so much fun and turned out great. As another reviewer I did add a beef boullion cube to the water. Found I had to add quite a bit more water (1/2 cup) to get it to a dough stage that I could roll out to make the cookies, but after doing that they rolled out nicely. Couldn't find my bone cookie cutter (wonder how it can vanish in the little house) so used animal cracker cutouts and that worked fine. Wish I'd thought to add some flax seed to it also but didn't think of that until I'd already had them in the oven. I thank you for posting, my DGSs thank you and most important Zeus thanks you.

Canine kudos! The two Cairn Terrors (correct spelling) give this as many stars as they are allowed to give. Sine my dogs are not affected by garlic or onion, I did add a bit; I added almost a teaspoon of garlic powder, a half teaspoon of onion powder, and a bit of bouillon flavoring in with the water. Oh, and I used whole wheat flour. They are very excited and happy!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
