My Viszla-mix, Sam, has a very sensitive stomach and most treats don't agree with him, but we need treats for his obedience training and I was really at a loss. This recipe is great! No junk (I couldn't believe what goes into most commercial treats...), and I can choose what goes into them.. I made them with sweet potato and chicken flavored baby foods and he loves them so much I had to put the container on a high shelf so he can't reach. I did need to add a bit more flour to make the dough workable, and I used a pizza cutter to cut the dough into small squares small enough to use for training. Also, after the baking time was done, I turned the oven off and left them in so that they came out very crunchy and dry and should keep very well in a sealed container (not that they'll last very long...) I think for Christmas this year, I'll make a big batch of these in bone shapes for the furry members of my extended family. Thanks for a great recipe!
Well, this just passed the picky puppy test with flying colors!! Our Sheltie just LOVED these - he kept beging for more - something he never does with dry treats. I used veggie/beef stew baby food for this batch. I also added a bit more flour to make it easier to roll. This is a definite keeper for my pooch - especially with all the news lately on dog food and treats being full of "junk" (not edible for human consumption) This recipe is easy and my sheltie adores it - I will definitly make these again and again. Thanks!!
