Hey all I was wondering if any of you had a good dog biscuit recipe that you know your or other doggies liked. I found several on the internet but I'm not sure if the dogs actually like them or not, would rather have one that I know the dogs like.

what kind of flavoring are you looking for? my sister and i run a dog cookie business! so we have tons of tested, tried, and approved by many dog, recipes....if you have something just kinda general in mind(peanut butter, all dogs love these) or want something a little more fancy(liver snaps) let me know and i would be glad to share!

Hi! I'm looking for more of a general taste like peanut butter, beef you know the basics. You run a dog cookie business? That sounds so cool!

Lady4Feet -
The ones you made Trouble and Monkey were a HUGE hit!!!  They absolutely loved them as did my daycare dogs - even the finicky, picky ones!  I was going to ask you for the recipe!

DogGrrl I'm glad they were a big hit, I was worried about them. I got the recipe here http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/recipe_dogbiscuit.htm#Flea%20Hater's%20Dog%20Biscuits it's the basic dog treat one. Only I used half chicken broth and half beef broth instead of one or the other. They were so sticky I had to use a lot more flour then they suggested too so they didn't look how I thought they should(mind you I was going by what store bought dog biscuits look like). But I guess as long as the end result is tasty it doesn't matter how they look.

Hardcoremothball I'd still be interested in a new basic recipe I love to expand my doggy spoiling knowledge  Cheesy

Though this thread is older, I thought I'd add, for fun's sake, that there is a recipe card/bone cookie cutter set at Target's dollar spot at the moment, and it includes four recipes.  I don't have any idea if they're any good, but I'll be adding the above recipes to my cards and hope others enjoy the cookie cutters as much as I will.

I know this thread is kinda old, but with the holiday season...I have an easy, un-fancy recipe that mixes meat flavored baby food with wheat germ and powdered milk into a dough/paste, then form into balls and bake. You can also make small balls for cats. My dog and his friends love them! I don't remember the exact amounts, but you sort of mix the three ingredients until it's a ball-rolling consistency and then bake until they are slightly browned. Very very easy! Different baby foods create sightly different colors (and also color your hands a bit!  Sad  ) They are nice to make a bunch and mix in with spiffy biscuits to make a nice doggie goodie basket.

One thing that I have see all over the web is the use of onions and garlic in pet treats. Both can be very bad to pets, and even if your dog has onions all the time, and they don't seem to bother him, he could still get sick if he is continually fed them. There are quite a few things that I was shocked to find out could be harmful, like grapes and raisins are VERY bad, and I'm sure most people don't even know it!
Here is a link I found that can tell you more...

Just thought I'd pass this on to all my craftster pals, so we can all keep our furry friends safe for the holidays!

I knew about most of those but I was surprised about garlic. I give my dog garlic & brewer's yeast treats that are MADE for dogs! he has itchy skin and it really seems to help!  Undecided Huh

I know this is an old thread, but I made the biscuits listed on front page by hardcoremothball.  They came out great!  And I am glad because I tried making doggie biscuits yesterday from a recipe I got off the net, and they were crummy.  Just goes to show you that people on craftster know everything!

LOL well my parents and MIL liked that they were homemade don't think I could get them to sample them though. I use to work at PetSmart in the salon we could see the registers where treats were kept in a bowl, you'd be really surprised how many people would munch on them!

Does anyone have a good dog treat recipe to package as a mix for gifts?  You know, the kind where you layer the dry ingredients and the recipient just adds the wet ingredients?

I am doing personalized etched glass cookie jars for my doggy clients this year (77 of them - yikes! Thank God for my Klic N Kut!!!!) and was thinking it would be cute to add a plastic bag of treat mix tied off with a dog bone cookie cutter.

Thanks for any help you might be able to give!

and there you have it! i have tons and tons of recipes so if u ever want more just say so! but these peanut butter ones are definately our best sellers...even most picky dogs like them!

Is it possible to make these in a ball shape? I just bought my dog this awesome toy that you can stuff treats in and I'm looking for some recipes I can make in a roundish shape to cram in the toy and give her quite a bit of fun. They'd be fairly small about 1/2 inch or smaller around.
Anyone tried it?

Yup you sure can. I do it with the left over dough after I cut the shapes out. They may not need quite as long baking time though depending on how hot your oven gets. But my dogs have never complained if I burnt the bottoms a bit.

awesome. And I assume there's a typo for the flour it's wheat flour right? not whear flour?

yeah whole wheat flour also keep it close by you may need some more. Sometimes my batter is really sticky (but not other times  Huh I don't get it) and then I just add a little bit at a time until I feel the batter is a good consistency.

Sounds good. My mom got a great deal on some wheat flour so I "stole it" from her. We swap that sort of stuff all the time.

I love making cookies for my dogs especially since it's so easy and I know what is going in them. Here's one I like to make, the ingredients are approximate because I like to eyeball it and add or subtract things:

2 cups flour
1 cup wheat germ/rolled oat/corn meal whichever you like to add/mixed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
~3 tablespoons of chunky peanut butter
1 egg
3/4 tsp baking powder
milk/soy to wet the dough... I'm not sure how much I use- I just add it as I go along but I'm guessing around 1 cup Tongue

Preheat oven to ~ 180-190 d Celsius or 350-370 d Fahrenheit. Bake for around 15-20 mins... Again, I'm always hanging around when it's baking so I can't tell you how long I take but if the cookies are cut small and you have a fan-forced awesome oven unlike the crappy thing that I use which is older than me... then.... Oh, just look at it after 15 mins ^_^

My dogs love it so much that they will eat the uncooked dough (just tiny pieces that fall from the table while I am making it since I get a bit messy Tongue) I hope someone's doggy loves this too!

Zurich, my service dog

I just made my dog some of these "brownies" and he absolutely LOVED them.  He literally stared into the oven as they were cooling, and sat next to me as I cut them into pieces, whining and waiting for me to give him pieces to sample.  I've only had him about a month, so I'm new to dog treat making.  As I made these, the liver was um.. let's just say "less than appetizing" to me.  I told Zurich to enjoy them, because I wasn't going to make them again.  Once I saw how much he went crazy for them, I decided I could suffer through the raw liver to make them again. 

I used less flour than called for, maybe half of the total.  I'm not sure where I got the recipe, so I googled the title, and came up with a lot of results, so apparently they're pretty popular. 


Bonnie's Sunshine Liver Brownies
Contributed by RosaKiana Rossi

The recipe makes a lot of brownies so keep any leftovers (should there be any) in the freezer because they spoil real easy.

    * 3 to 3 1/2 lbs of liver, beef or chicken
    * 1 C whole wheat flour
    * 2 C white flour
    * 1/2 C corn meal
    * 1 med shaker of grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover cookie sheet with foil, coat with cooking spray, sprinkle lightly with corn meal and set aside.
Process liver in food processor or blender until it looks like milk chocolate. Pour into large mixing bowl and blend in the rest of the ingredients. Spread evenly onto cookie sheet (the mixture will be thick) and sprinkle lightly with corn meal. Bake until no pink is left. I usually bake them for about 30 min for one pan and then turn the oven off but leave the brownies inside until they are cool. Cut in pieces and be ready to be loved by your dog(s).

I have yet to meet a dog that doesn't like SLBs and I think that this is about the greatest bait on earth... Enjoy!!!
