Doggy Treats

With recent outbreaks of tainted pet food and treats, cat and dog owners are growing concerned about what their furry friends are really eating. In addition to concerns about pet food ingredients and poor quality control, my own dog has an allergy that can make buying her food and treats very difficult. My Husky has a very sensitive tummy and gets tummy troubles from beef or red meat. Even if it's just a treat that is beef-flavored. Making her treats in my kitchen is rewarding for both of us. By making your own dog treats at home, you can rest easy knowing you used safe and natural ingredients. Is this your first time making homemade dog treats? Don't worry! It isn't difficult-- even if you don't normally cook or bake. This recipe uses basic ingredients and simple steps so your cute canine will be chowing down in no time.

Easy Treat Recipes

This homemade dog cookie recipe is super easy to make since it calls for ingredients readily available at most grocery stores. You might even have these ingredients on hand. The only item I didn't have was a cute bone-shaped cookie cutter While any cookie cutter will do, I wanted my home made dog treats to be shaped like traditional dog bones. I ordered mine on Amazon and it even came with a cute little card attached for another recipe for home made dog treats.

  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. In large bowl, combine water, oats, margarine and bouillon cube. Let stand for 10 minutes. Grease cookie sheets.
  3. In separate bowl combine cornmeal, sugar, milk and egg. Mix well. Add this mixture to first bowl (after the ten minutes have passed for the first bowl).
  4. Mix ingredients well and fold in shredded cheese.
  5. Add flour gradually, about a cup at a time, mixing well with each addition. A stiff dough should form.
  6. Knead dough on lightly floured surface. Roll out to 1/2" thickness and cut with dog bone cookie cutter. Place bones on cookie sheet about an inch apart.
  7. Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on rack before serving.

These all natural dog biscuits are easy to make and ready in no time. My husband helped me bake this batch while our dog sat by, patiently watching, because she knew they were for her. She loves cheese, so these treats are always a hit with her. I love knowing exactly what she's eating because I made her treats myself. I can pronounce every ingredient I used-- Do you know what kind of ingredients are in your dog's treats? Are you familiar with them? Would you eat them yourself? Feel free to taste test a biscuit before giving to your dog. I personally find them very plain tasting but the way Bowie goes ga-ga for them, you would think they were flavored like chocolate-covered steak.

      @chefmancave-- That's my husband lending a hand. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. You'll have to come back and let me know how Ruby liked them :)

      @lanablackmoor-- Thanks for stopping by and sharing. My dog is also allergic but to beef and many times even the beef flavors in treats can upset her stomach. Factor that in to the equation with the recalls and options become limited, like you mentioned. Thanks for the kind words! You'll have to let me know how your altered recipe comes out :)

      Whose the dough roller in the Ghostbuster T-Shirt? Great hub. I will make some up and try to get a pic of my Ruby demolishing it. Thanks for sharing.

      This is awesome! My dog can't digest wheat, so I'll just substitute it with a gluten-free flour. It seems like everything is getting recalled these days. I'm at the point where I have maybe a handful of brands I actually trust. I'm going to give this a shot! We feed raw meat, so that takes care of worrying about recalled food, but it leaves the matter of what to give as a treat. Voted up, extremely useful!

      Your husky is adorable, by the way!! : ) Homemade treats, I'm sure she feels like a princess!

      @Peggy W-- Thanks for reading and sharing :)

      @TattooKitty-- Ziggy is such a cute pet name. We named our Husky Bowie, after David Bowie because of her eyes. If we got another Husky we would name him/her Ziggy after Ziggy Stardust. Thanks for reading and commenting :)

      @DrMark1961-- Thanks for reading and commenting. I, too, was a little hesitant to taste-test until I realized it's all really "people food". Thanks for the kind words ;)

      @Maria Cecilia-- I would gladly be your neighbor and bake these up for you :) I think you could use a toaster oven just fine. Mine is kind of small and with the size cookie cutter I used, I could probably only do three at a time. But since my toaster oven gets just as hot, I would bet you could if you shaped them smaller so it didn't take forever. Peso is a cute pet name! Thanks for commenting ;)

      I made some homemade dog treats years ago when we had several dogs and had forgotten all about them until reading this hub. Will have to make these soon. Thanks for this recipe. Up votes and will share.

      I will say wish you are my neighbor so I can just order and pay you LOL, I don't have an oven at home yet but you think an ordinary oven toaster can do this? I always love to make dog treats for my dogs but I got disappointed when I need to bake it... Peso and pm wil definitely love it...voted up..
