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!!
I made these treats and they are a hit with my labrador! I used Lamb and Lamb Gravy Gerber's baby food, which is pretty smelly stuff and not for the weak of nose. They're very moist so make sure you let them dry thoroughly before putting them in a tin or baggy.
