Crunchy Chicken & Carrot Dog Biscuits

We’re always looking for new treats for Cannoli, our Siberian Husky.  She loves treats and most of the time the only way she’ll obey commands is when she knows there’s a treat in store for her.

We go thru plenty of treats!  Store bought treats can not only get pricey some of them aren’t very healthy for your pet.  We usually make our own doggie treats, it’s not only economical it’s healthier for her too.

Last week my 13 year old grandson, Dion, made these crunchy chicken & carrot biscuits for her.  It was so easy to make, it uses only four ingredients, and he really enjoyed cutting out the bone shaped biscuits.  Here’s Dion’s recipe!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup organic flour

1/2 cup organic rolled oats

1 jar organic strained carrot baby food

1 jar chicken baby food

Directions:

1.  Mix all ingredients in large bowl and knead until you have a firm dough ball.  You may have to add flour a little bit at a time until you reach the right consistency.

2.  Roll dough out on a floured surface to 1/2″ thick.

3.  Cut dough into any shape with a cookie cutter or into squares using a pizza cutter.

4.  Place dough on parchment covered baking sheet.

6.  Let cool and store in airtight containers to keep them crunchy.

DIY Frozen Blueberry Yogurt Dog Treats

DIY Frozen Blueberry Yogurt Dog Treats

Frozen Blueberry Yogurt Dog Treats

This summer keep your furry friends cool with homemade frozen dog treats!

We live in Hawaii with a very furry 10 month old Siberian Husky named Cannoli.  Keeping her cool and comfy can be challenging, specially during the hotter summer months.

Recently I’ve been making popsicles for my grandsons and buying Ice Pups from the pet store.  What was I thinking?  Why buy expensive frozen treats for the pooch when I could easily make them?  After all I bake doggie biscuits for her!

I think my biggest problem was what I should freeze them in, it didn’t want to use the popsicle molds, they require the plastic sticks they come with or wooden popsicle sticks, the dog would chew on them, not a good idea.  After some thought I decided to use styrofoam coffee cups I had on hand.
They worked out perfectly!  Once the treats are frozen I just peel off the cup and give her the treat as needed.  I was concerned that the styrofoam might stick to the frozen treat, but it didn’t, it peeled right off.

For my first foray in to the frozen dog treat world I used ingredients I already had in my fridge, in this case leftover Greek yogurt from my chicken souvlaki marinade I made for last Sunday’s barbecue night and fresh blueberries left over from my fruit filled ice pops and Red, White & Blueberry Popsicles.  It took all of 5 minutes to mix it together and portion out into the cups.  I froze them overnight and the next morning they were ready to go.

I used blueberries, but really you can use any fruit or veggie your pooch likes, just be careful to remove the seeds if you’re using apples and don’t put onions or other items that are harmful to dogs. Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients:

1 cup Plain Yogurt

Handful of Fresh Blueberries or other fruit or veggie

Directions:

Mix both ingredients together in a bowl.

Portion out in styrofoam coffee cups.  You can adjust the portion to fit your dog’s appetite.  I filled mine about half way.

Freeze at least 6 hours.

Peel off cup when ready to give puppy a treat.

My Cannoli loves these treats and will eat them all day long.  I limit her to one a day as yogurt can add on excess weight, that’s what my breeder uses to bulk up his dogs before a dog show.  I don’t need the vet scolding me for having an overweight dog.  Next time I think I’ll try lowfat yogurt.

Chicken in a Biscuit Doggie Treats

Chicken in a Biscuit Doggie Treats

Biscuit Doggie Treats

Every Saturday I make treats for Cannoli, my Siberian Husky who is very treat motivated.

This weekend we tried a new recipe, something different from the fruit and veggies we usually make.
We made savory biscuits we call Chicken in a Biscuit, she loves them!

The best part is these doggie treats are easy to make using just 3 ingredients.  They’re also much less expensive than any dog treat you can buy at the pet store.  And you know exactly what’s in them and where the ingredients came from.

This is really the main reason I’ve started to make homemade dog treats.  After reading horror stories about imported treats I’m terrified of giving them to my pets.

Having said that I suggest that you check labels to see where the ingredients you use for making your pet treats to see where they are manufactured.  My rule of thumb is if I don’t use it to prepare food for my family I don’t use it for my pets either.

Make some for your furry friends today!

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Ingredients:

3  2.5oz. jars of chicken in chicken broth baby food.

2 cups  flour

1/2 cup  chicken broth

Directions:

Place flour in mixing bowl.

Add baby food.

Mix together, while you are mixing slowly add chicken broth.

Knead dough until all the flour has been absorbed.  If you dough is too stiff and you still have unmixed flour add a little more broth.

Dough should be soft but not loose.  You should be able to form a ball.

Form ball and roll out on a floured surface to 1/2″ thick.

Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters or an inverted glass.  You can also use a pizza cutter to make squares.

Place biscuits on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes.

Turn biscuits and bake for another 10 minutes.

Cool biscuits and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Doggie Breath Freshener Treats

Doggie Breath Freshener Treats

Doggie Breath Freshener Treats
I always buy those green dog biscuits that are supposed to freshen the dog’s breath and be good for their teeth; my Siberian Husky won’t eat them.  She turns their noses away when offered one of those expensive biscuits.  She’s not a picky eater, but there was something about those treats that she just doesn’t like.
I started making these breath freshener treats.  They are so easy to make, the pup loves them, and they’re healthy too!  An added bonus is that they’re very inexpensive, specially if you have a herb garden and use your homegrown parsley.
Doggie Breath Freshener Treats
Ingredients:
2 cups fresh parsley – finely chopped
2 bottles (4 oz. each) Strained Green Bean baby food
2 cups organic flour
1 cup flax seed meal
water if needed
Directions:
Mix all ingredients together.  I use my hands to mix the dough until it holds together as a ball.  Add 1 tbls. of water at a time if dough is too crumbly until it is stiff enough to form a ball.
Roll dough out on lightly floured surface to 1/2″ thickness.
Cut into desired shapes using a cookie cutter, pizza wheel (for squares), or inverted glass (for circles).
Place on parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Cool and store in airtight container.
