Homemade Pet Treats

Baking some treats for your best friend is fun!  Here are a few recipes for dogs that are tasty (evidently!), healthy, and easy to make.

Don’t forget that chocolate and onions are toxic to dogs.  Be sure to check the ingredients of any processed items (like bouillon or baby food meat) that you use when baking for your dog.

The cooking times on these may vary depending on how thick you cut out your biscuits.  I usually pat the dough out to about half an inch thick, cut out the biscuits, then bake. 

Peanut Butter Treats

2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1 1/4 Tbsp baking powder

1 1/4 cup peanut butter

1 cup milk

Combine flour and baking powder in a large bowl. 

Combine milk and peanut butter in a separate bowl and mix until smooth.

Gradually stir peanut butter mixture into flour in the larger bowl.

Knead dough by hand and roll out on floured surface to desired thickness.  Cut out treats. Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees.  Cool before storing.  

Chee-Z Treats

4 cups whole wheat flour

3/4 cup vegetable oil

3 tsp. garlic powder

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/4 cup shredded cheese

1 1/4 cup milk

Combine flour and garlic powder in a large bowl.

Gradually stir in oil, cheese, egg, milk and blend well.  Roll out dough to desired thickness. Cut out treats and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake 25 minutes at 400 degrees.  Cool before storing.

Lena’s Luscious Dog Biscuits

2.5 cups Whole wheat flour

 1 tsp  Brown sugar

 1/2 cup  Powdered dry milk

 6 Tbsp   Meat drippings

 1/2 tsp   Salt

1  Beaten egg

 1/2 tsp  Garlic powder

 1/2 cup  Ice water


Preheat oven to 350. Lightly oil a cookie sheet. Combine flour, dry milk, salt, garlic powder and sugar. Cut in meat drippings until mixture resembles corn meal. Mix in egg. Add enough water so that mixture forms a ball.  Pat out the dough and cut with cookie cutter.

Bake 25-30 minutes.

Sweet puppy with a yoyo....

Okay, you’ve worked hard whipping up a batch of delicious dog treats and have them in the oven. Now there’s nothing left to do but wait...

Only now are we even beginning to understand what a marvelous blessing animals truly are.”
