home made doggie treats?

Postby The Guy » Tue Jun 22, 2010 9:11 am

a local doggy store sells gourmet treats for dogs and cats. they are pretty tasty, even by human standards! so now im thinking that i could whip something tasty up at home. i have some organic oat flour, honey, egg whites, peanut butter, and yogurt, all of which im considering using. i want to make them high in protein. are these ingredients safe to feed daily? what are some other good recipes? thanks!

The lady across the street from me uses liver paste in her home made doggie treats.

yes they are safe raw as well. any chicken part is fine raw.

The ingredients you listed are pretty much in a lot of dog foods. So yes they are safe to feed daily, especially since treats should be a low part of their diet.

To get high protein treats your best bet is to make jerky.

there are tons of resources for doggie treat recipes- a quick google search should turn some up. I make my pup chicken liver treats- I boil them until cooked through, slice, then put in an oven on very low temp (250 degrees) for at least an hour. It sort of dehydrates them. Then I cut into bite size pieces. He loves thems

I've dehydrated them in a food dehydrator. I didn't cook them first, that sounds like it might help, but they were a real pain in the neck to get off the dehydrator trays. I did spray them with oil before I put them on, which helped some. Sweet potato slices are way easier, and they love them.
There's some good biscuit recipes on thebark.com, the gingerbread one is really good-the dogs think so anyways.

Dehydrated sliced sweet potatoes are AWESOME and healthy dog treats.
