I have a link here, I use some of these Homemade Dog Treat Recipes!
I know this thread is old, but I just want to thank you for this link!:hug8:

Every Christmas, I tweaked the Pupcake recipe for my doggies and all their friends (and coworkers puppers too!) They were always a big hit, but a couple years ago I stopped doing it and then last year, when I wanted to start doing it again, I couldn't for the life of me, find this exact recipe! (I remembered what I tweaked, but not the original recipe):o: I winged it, and though all the dogs liked it, they were hideous looking and I was a little embarassed.:eek: Anyway, thanks again! I'm now looking forward to making them again! :dancing:

They all have grains.:confused: My dog does not eat grains.


Sitting on the front steps
My dog loves meaty chewy meat products. She would crave for more by barking very loud after she had one already.

Here is a good one that our Boxer loves:

They have no preservatives so should be frozen and then kept in the frig after thawing.

Liver Treats

1 LB Liver (I use beef liver)
1 C. cornmeal
1 T. garlic powder
1 C. wheat germ
2 eggs
1 T. salt (may be omitted) I omit it

Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until thick and well mixed.
Spread on a cookie sheet that has been covered with foil and sprayed with a
non-stick spray (or lightly greased).

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.
Freeze in small batches and thaw as needed.

I bake a lot for my dogs.

A few favorite treats of my crew:

Peanut Butter Carrot Biscuits
5 cups flour
3 cups rolled oats
2-1/4 cups water
5 large carrots, finely shredded
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup applesauce

1. Preheat oven to 300-350 degrees F.
2. In a bowl, combine flour and oats. Mix in water, carrots, peanut butter, and applesauce.
3. Knead dough until people-cookie dough consistency. Worked best for me to chill the dough for 30 mins and then roll out dough to desired thickness on a floured surface. Use cookie cutters to create biscuit shapes. (At first I rolled it paper thin and the cookies burnt so don’t do that). Cooling dough in between pans worked well.
4. Bake for 20 minutes or until slightly firm. Let biscuits cool... enjoy!
Makes: 6 panfuls of biscuits, Cooking time: 20 to 25 minutes a pan

PB Cookies - easy to substitue
1 cup whole wheat flour
• 1 cup spelt flour (or oat flour)
• 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
• 1/4 cup flax meal
• ¼ cup applesauce
• 1 cup warm water
• 1/4 cup peanut butter or cooked sweet potato or baby food

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Combine wheat flour, spelt flour, oats, and flax in large bowl.
Stir in water and peanut butter. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface,
mixing in more flour as needed until dough is smooth and no longer sticky.
Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with small cookie cutters into desired shapes,
and place 3/4 inch apart on greased cookie sheets.
3. Bake 30 minutes.

Anti Inflammatory Dog Mash

1 cup lentils

Throw in a crockpot with a crockpot liner for no mess - Cook on low for around 4 hours

In a food processor add the following:

Freezes well. I add ginger and turmeric to each meal.

This can be given to birds as well as dogs.
