Dog Biscuit Recipes

No homemade dog diets would be complete without dog biscuit recipes and that is what we are preparing here today.

There are many healthy options for your pooch, and we are certainly not suggesting that all dog food is bad. However, if your dog has special dietary needs or you just want to know what ingredients your dog is eating, then homemade dog food is a perfect option.

Creating a homemade dog food recipe is not only healthy, but also a lot of fun. Because every pet is different, please make sure that you look over these homemade dog treats and ensure that they are appropriate for your dog. It is important to remember that treats are not like homemade dog food,so they should only be used in moderation.

Homemade Dog Treats

You can get different size, and shape cookie cutters. This allows you to make homemade dog treats that are suitable for the size of your dog. If you would prefer not to buy cookie cutters just for this occasion, you can use a biscuit cutter (if you have one) a small glass, or the open end of a juice can. 

One of the benefits of baking your own dog treats is the fact that you can be sure it fits with your homemade dog diets. Just as you would for yourself, it is a good idea to select quality products. For example, if you have it available to you, use natural peanut butter instead of the generic supermarket option that has plenty of added sugar. If you have the option, use organic flour.

This is one of our favorite dog biscuit recipes that only needs a microwave. You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of hot water
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup of plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon of bouillon granules
  • 1/3 cup of shortening
  • 1/4 cup of cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup of dry milk
  • 1 cup of whole-wheat flour

    Combine the sugar, oats, milk, cornmeal, and flour. Start cutting in the shortening. Add hot water, bouillon, and egg. Knead the mixture for five straight minutes. Roll the mixture out about half an inch thick and start cutting your favorite shapes. Microwave them at 50% power for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. It is important that the plate rotates in the microwave. Guaranteed that these will not last long, so make sure you have enough.

    This is one of our favorite dog biscuit recipesthat provides a delicious alternative to the traditional treats that you might see in the store.

  • 2 - 3 cups ofwhole-wheat flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ of cup milk
  • 2teaspoons of chicken or beef flavored instant bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 3/4 cupof cornmeal
  • 1 cupofboiling water
  • 1/3 cupof margarine
  • 1 cupof rolled oats (such as Quaker)
  • Instructions:

    You can start by preheating the oven to 325 degrees and greasing the cookie sheets. Combine the boiling water, margarine, and rolled oats in a large bowl. Let that stand for 10 minutes. Stir in the egg, cheese, milk, bouillon, sugar, and cornmeal. Be sure to mix well. Begin to spoon flour into your measuring cup lightly. Add a single cup of flour each time, be sure to mix each time you add flour to form stiff dough. 

    Flour the surface you are going to put the mixture on and knead the flour until the dough is no longer sticky and feels smooth. That should take around three to four minutes. Roll the mixture out about half an inch thick and start cutting your favorite shapes.

    Place them onto greased cookie sheets, about an inch apart from each other. Bake at 325 degrees and leave anywhere between 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. This will make enough for eight dozen small dog treats, or three dozen large dog treats.

    Of course, it is important to keep your homemade dog food recipe good for as long as possible. Most of these dog biscuit recipes would benefit from being refrigerated. Store them in a zip lock bag or tightly sealed container.
