Dog Treat Recipes: Only The Best for your Best Friend

Dog Treat Recipes: Only The Best for your Best Friend

People always ask me to recommend some high quality treats for their furry friends and I always lovingly suggest that the best way to make sure your pup has the best is to read the labels! Make sure the ingredients in your treats are all natural. The fewest number of ingredients listed is always best. Also, a good rule of thumb is to make sure there is nothing in the ingredient listing that is hard to pronounce. Ingredients like: chicken, duck, lamb, rice, sweet potato – these are all excellent. Ingredients like By-Products, preservatives, and additives are usually to be avoided.

For those who have the time and want to experiment and make some treats for their dogs, here are some recipes I like:

Apple Crunch Pupcakes

2 3/4 cups water
1/4 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup dried apple chips ( you can also use fresh fruit)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 egg, beaten slightly
4 tablespoons honey Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooling spray. Mix all wet ingredients thoroughly. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl. Add wet to dry slowly , scraping well to make sure no dry mixture is left. Pour into muffin tins. Bake for 1 1/4 hours or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out dry. Store in a sealed container. Makes around 12-14 pupcakes.

Archie Squares

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered dry milk
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup Ice water

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly oil a cookie sheet. Combine flour, dry milk, garlic powder and sugar. Cut in meat drippings until mixture resembles corn meal. Mix in egg. Add enough water so that mixture forms a ball. Using your fingers, pat out dough onto cookie sheet to 1/2″ thick. Cut dough into squares appropriate for your dog size. Prick each cookie with fork. Bake 25-30 minutes. Remove from tray and cool on rack. Store in airtight container.

Bad Breath Banishers
