Homemade treat recipes

I have decided that because you never quite know what is in the treats you buy from the store, I am going to start to make all of Millers treats by myself. So I was wondering if anybody had any treat recipes to share here. Mabye we could make a cook book, LOL

I make Recipe #2 from this site... & it's by far her favourite treat!! they freeze for 6 months or in the fridge for 3 weeks

****ALWAYS check the ingredients on recipes to ensure they are safe for dogs -- I've only tried Recipe #2, so can only speak to that specific recipe

I make oven dried beef treats for Riley. I buy beef shoulder cut for london broil, bake it on a baking sheet at about 350 until it's cooked through. Then slice it really thin, put the slices back on the baking sheet (you could use a rack too if you want) and back into the oven about 150 to 200 degrees until the meat is deep brown and dried out. After it cools, I bag it up and stick it in the fridge. That's his training class treat, I break it up into tiny bits and he loves it. I once used an eye round roast. Anything lean and boneless would work.

I'm not home now, but I'll try to post the basic recipe I use tomorrow. It's easy, and easy to modify.

There are two ingredients I'd be careful of with the recipes on the site posted... One recipe calls for sugar free jam. Read the bottle VERY careully, or leave this ingredient out completely. Xylitol is found in SO many things as an arificial sweetener these days, and it is DEADLY to dogs. The second thing is that one recipe calls for using beef boullion. If you want to flavor your cookies with meat, use REAL meat, not something full of salt. Salt isn't good for dogs!

Finally, my personal choice is to avoid wheat, just because it is such a common allergen. I would replace the wheat flour with brown rice flour in these recipes.

I'm sure you can easily modify her recipes around these two ingredients, though, and the rest look like good ideas!

good point Karen!... I updated my post with a little "disclaimer" ... truthfully I only looked at the 1st two recipes because I was only looking for a peanut butter recipe, I didnt review the others

As a good rule of thumb, when making recipes ALWAYS double check to make sure the ingredients are doggy safe... and when purchasing treats READ the labels!

As with any recipe (human or dog) adjust it to your preference use the type of flour, peanut butter etc that you prefer.

Happy Baking!
