Making your own homemade dog treats is the best thing for your dog; you provide your fur friend with a healthy snack that is nutritious and free of unhealthy additives. Tailor the recipes to your dog’s dietary restrictions and tweak the recipes for taste preferences.
Commercially prepared treats often use fillers, by-products and preservatives to help extend “shelf life” NOT your dog’s life.
These basic biscuits can be customized to cater to your canine’s palette.
• 2 ½ cups rolled oats
• 1 egg
• 1 tsp. beef or chicken broth/stock
• ½ cup hot water
Optional to add
• Bacon bits, liver powder, shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add all ingredients together in bowl and mix well, knead the dough into a ball.
Roll out dough until ½ inch thick. Cut into slices or use a cookie cutter to make bone shapes.
Place biscuits on lightly greased cookie sheet
Bake for 30 minutes. Cool before serving.
Combine any of the following leftovers to create a flavorful trail mix, which you can pack as a snack for outings
• Pieces of meat (if seasoned, make sure to rinse well)
• Cooked Vegetables (no onions or garlic)
• Fruit (no grapes or raisins)
Cut ingredients into ½ inch thick pieces, place on cookie sheet. Place into a 200 degree oven until dried or use a food dehydrator.
