This may be a silly question, but does anyone have a recipe for dog biscuits, something that obviously is suitable for dogs, I would like to make some that I can be sure of what goes into them, I used to have a recipe that had instant oats in it but naturally I can’t find it and I can’t find anything like it on Google, I just want something that is a nice treat for my dogs without sugar and with healthy ingredients, Thanks in advance.

  • Interesting question. I would never have thought about baking cookies for a dog, but then I don’t have a dog ;)

  • Flour, egg, peanut butter, beef stock, google it and anything with those ingredients will be popular

  • Good question for the dog lovers! Good answers too and I will use some of the recipes and links. Thanks to all Mom’s for good answers. :)

  • My dog loved these: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/peanut-butter-and-pumpkin-dog-treats/
    you can leave out salt or spices if you don’t want your dog to have them.

  • try google and see what comes up

  • Some vets recommend not giving pets too much food with cereal in it. It can cause what is called hot spots. Dogs in particular can get patches that get hot and itchy. They will either bite or scratch at themselves. II have seen dogs that have actually scratched areas of hair and skin off. Sometimes if you put your hand on the patch you can tell it is hot. If they can reach the area it is likely they will keep licking it too. Some older dogs don’t like their biscuits too hard as their teeth and jaws gradually weaken. You may find that it you leave them a little soft by the time they cool they will be quite hard. Young puppies can only have very small biscuits as they have to learn to chew or they can choke on the biscuits.
    You can check the labels on packets of bought biscuits and see what actual food they have in them to get some clues. Some dogs actually like to eat raw chopped or grated carrot. In fact we had a young pup that pulled her own carrots out of the garden and ate them. She must have watched Dad pulling them out. We got her as a 6 week pup in the Jan. and the carrots were always at pulling stage from late July through to early Sept.
    She would lie on her belly with the green leaves in her paws and eat from the tip of the roots down. She had been trained that she wasn’t supposed to go on the garden. She had huge areas of lawn to run on. She would pull one and watch towards the house to see if we were watching her. If she thought she was going to be caught she would take it down behind the shed and eat it. She would eat the entire carrot and just leave the leaves. She left her evidence or initially we wouldn’t have known. The amusing part was none of us could never find the spot she had pulled them from. They shouldn’t be given eggs at all (not even cooked) as it is too high in protein and can cause kidney damage.
