Homemade Dog treats

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Anyone make these? I’m looking to bake something special for Bruno since he’s such a sweet boy . In looking at recipes over the net I noticed a lot of them have odd things such as baby food, flour, garlic, milk powder, eggs… some even have sugar. Is this good for dogs? I know they are just treats but treats in my house mean 5-6 at a time, that would be a lot of those above ingredients in my dogs tummy.

Are those ingredients OK to serve? Do you guys have any dog treat recipes with just meat and veggies, something that seems healthy. Or is it OK to feed him these items.

Thanks!

I am not sure. I will check those out for sure. I did want to bake him something though. Growing up in my house my Mom always showed her love by baking and cooking... i know hes just a dog, but i think he deserves a home cooked, warm treat. I know.... I'm a big weirdo LOL

Here are 2 recipes for dog "cookies" that we used to sell at our Humane Society bake sales. The woman who made it was a vegetarian, so there are no meat products in these. My dogs loved them personally. She had a dog bone shaped cookie cutter which made them very cute.

Peanut Butter Yums (Dogs)

2 cups whole-wheat flour (plus extra flour for handling
dough)
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk

Combine flour and baking powder. In separate bowl, mix
peanut butter and milk, then add dry ingredients and stir.
May need to add more flour to handle dough.
Place dough on lightly floured surface and knead. Roll
dough to ¼ inch thickness. Use cookie cutter to cut
shapes. Place shapes on lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for 15 minutes until lightly browned.

Garlic Cheesy Chow-Downs (Dogs)

1 cup wheat flour
1 cup finely grated cheese
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp butter (softened)
1/2 cup milk

Mix flour and cheese together. Add garlic powder and
butter. Add milk. Place dough on lightly floured surface
and knead. Roll into ¼ inch thickness. Use cookie cutter
to cut shapes. Place shapes on lightly greased cookie
sheet. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Err...my only experience with homemade dog treats ended in puke... and other things. lol.

Good luck with the baking! I know my sister made some kind of treat with activated charcol in it and her dogs loved them

I will try to see if she'll let me know what that recipe was.

I make these every time we have dog related things going on at Camp. The dogs LOVE them! I made some before that involved icing and would not recommend it, they just made things messy! Although it was funny seeing the dogs smack their lips for 10 minutes getting all the icing off! (the icing was a cream cheese mixture)
