This is actually a recipe to put in with kibble. I got it from one of my spark friends.

Salmon loaf recipe -
large quantity. Makes at least three long tupperware containers. Freezes very well.
Dump all ingredients into the dishpan. I mix it with my hands. (yeah, ick)
Three cans canned salmon - undrained - (Three pounds of ground turkey can be substituted if desired)
a dozen eggs - put them in the blender, shell and all. Blend until shells are powdered
one cup of olive oil
One large box of quick oatmeal
two large cans of packed pumpkin
Molasses - about half a cup
Mix it all up - should be the consistency of meatloaf once chilled - slices well. IF too dry, add a little water. Too wet, add more oatmeal.
Pack it all into the flat tupperware containers - or whatever you have - and you are done.
Basically, ingredients can be anything. Just don't cook the meat because cooking changes the properties of the meat and makes it harder to digest.
I use the salmon loaf for dogs who are having a very bad time keeping weight or who are ill. Hardly any dog can turn down salmon.
slice or spoon out to serve - top with plain yogurt if extra probiotics are needed. Serving size is about twice the size of a deck of cards for a 25 pound cocker.
I'm use kefir rather than yogurt, make it myself and all dogs get that every day. Tastes like buttermilk but is better for the gut than yogurt.

My dog has liver problems and our vet recommended the following for his treats:

2 Cups Whole wheat Flour
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
1 1/4 Cup Hot Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the above ingredients together until well blended. Either roll out and cut or use a cookie scoop to place on biscuits on a cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 40 minutes.

For crunchy biscuits cool overnight in oven, for immediate use cool on wire rack. Depending on size of biscuits this will make about 28, I usually get about 35 out of my mix.

Storage - Airtight tin= 1 week
Fridge = 3 weeks
Freezer = 6 months

Isn't it funny how dogs LOVE peanut Butter and Sweet Potatoes. ( My dog loves carbs, no matter what form they are in.) As to pills, I figured it out for when she has to take them. Since she eats canned food, I take a little bit and roll it into a ball and stick the pill inside. While I can't see this working for a dog that has to take a pill everyday, it's good it you have to give your furry child medication every so often.

Our vet tech make his own sweet potato treats. It's pretty no-fail. YouTube has videos, but if you cut the potato in slices (any direction) peeled or not peeled, 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices & put in a very low oven for hours, you should be fine. I store in the fridge or freeze leftovers. The dogs don't think there should BE leftovers!

Too soft or even burned, they'll eat 'em! Around Thanksgiving sweet potatoes get very cheap. I try to dry enough to stash in the freezer for months. One year, I did 40 lbs. emoticon

We found another dog treat that Henley can handle. (he has allergies). It's called Healthy Select
Wheat-Free Treats with Pumpkin and Quinoa. No artificial colors or preservatives, and of course no wheat, corn or soy. Simple ingredients, so ya'll can probably bake some for your dog(s). Rye Flour, Ground Pumpkin (I would use pure pumpkin) Quinoa Seed, Canola Oil, Eggs, and Cane Molasses. (I would use reg. Molasses). Our dogs love these, and they are easy to break in half. The company that makes the treats is located in San Diego, Calif. Yeaaa, it's made in the USA!

p.s. We buy them at Petco

my dogs love sweet potatoes and I would love to make some. Anyone have any advice on that where they are still chewy but not hard? How thick a cut works best? Do you cook the sweet potato first or cut raw then bake? TIA

Darlene, experiment with different flours and let me know what you come up with!

One of mine has anal gland issues too...her poop is nice and firm which is what you want. I don't know if it helps with the glands problem though.

My last batch, I subbed 1/2 cup of coconut flour for the brown rice flour...I don't know what it would turn out like if I subbed more...I'll have to try it!

I'm pretty heavy-handed on the cinnamon. The girls love it and it makes the house smell soooooooo good when they're baking.

That sounds interesting to try. Does the flax seed meal do anything to the bowl movements or anything? I have been told that fiber will help with anal gland problems so something like this might be helpful with my girl who has problems. I also use pumpkin for her, but she has gotten to where she doesn't want it plain. So I think I may try these for her. Can any other flours work in place of the rice flour? I already have 4 gluten-free flours (of course one is the flax) to make gluten-free for me.

I make my dog's treats (I call them Super-Puppy Cookies) as I REALLY don't trust commercial dog treats.

This recipe is a HUGE hit with my girls and every other pup we've shared it with and it is HEALTHY! Grain-free. And the whole house smells sooooooo good while they're baking.

Pumpkin-Flaxseed Super Puppy Biscuits

1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1 TBL (or more) cinnamon
2 TBL dried parsley flakes
½ cup Flax seed meal

Mix the above ingredients together until smooth, then gradually add up to 2 cups of brown rice flour until the dough can be rolled out and cut without being too sticky.

Roll about ½” thick and cut, put on pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes; turn.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes; turn.

Bake at 300 degrees for 15 min. then turn the oven off and let them stay in the oven for another half hour or so, til they are at your crunch-preference.

We got a recipe for Fish Fudge from the humane society where we are taking our little girl for puppy classes. I haven't tried it yet, but the trainer said it's like puppy crack!

Fish Fudge
1 (14oz) can of salmon - do not drain (2 (6oz) cans of tuna can be substituted)
1-1/2 cups flour
2 eggs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Process fish and eggs in food processor or blender (or mix in bowl). Add flour and mix to a brownie-like consistency. Spread to a 1/4 inch thickness on a greased cookie sheet. Mixture will only cover 3/4 of the sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. When cool cut into small sized training treats. Portion into several baggies and freeze what won't be used right away.

I like this recipe too! I was already thinking about using Rye flour in the last recipe. I've made treats for Oreo before using wheat flour and she didn't like them.

We bought a big box at Sams Club of the Wet Nose Pumpkin Bones for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We also gave some of the bones to Huck and Meg's for a Christmas present. The dogs are crazy about them.

I like this recipe! Already have it printed out (and put in my recipe box at food.com).

I bought a box of Wet Nose pumpkin (shaped) bones and Oreo has already gone through half the box.

BTW, Wet Nose is a USA made dog treat, USDA organic. It's a bit pricy, but Amazon.com has the best price unless you have a Sam's Club or Costco that carries them, then you can get a 5# box for about $10.

I have stopped buying dog biscuits for my elderly Lab because of all the extra chemicals in them. I make peanut-butter ones for her and many of my neighbor dogs. The recipe is so easy and they smell heavenly.

Peanut-butter Dog "Cookies"

2 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat
2 TBS of oil (I use Canola)
1/2 cup peanut-tbutter. (inexpensive works best for some reason)
1 cup of water

Mix the last 3 ingredients together and then add the flour, one cup at a time. I use my hands to mix it together well.
Roll out very thin so they are crispy, cut. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 20 min in 350 oven. Makes about 2 1/2 doz depending on your cookie cutter size. I usually get a lot more than that.

Then try to not sample one yourself because they smell so good.

with 5 gsd's (4 now, as of sat), I was so tired of all those store bought, preservative laden dog treats so I started making my own (which quickly turned into a business for me - lol!). ours love our beef n cheddar, and cinnabones the best. : )

going to make some more sweet potato chews today for our youngest pups. for those who make these chews, what have you found to be the best thickness/oven temp?

Here is a recipe for homemade dog treats I found on Facebook-

Here is a Pumpkin Recipe that is healthy for them Cleo’s Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour *
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional). Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.

Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2″ – depending on your dog’s chew preferences, – and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.

* Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people I know, tolerate wheat.

Makes up to 75 small (1″) biscuits or 50 medium biscuits

We soak their kibble in water for an hour until it's all puffed up.. Then we stuff the kongs with that and drip in fish oil, and freeze them. That's what we give them in the morning before going to work.. They just love it!

The only kind of treats I have ever made were from liver that I had to blend to a liquid (not easy because that is stringy stuff) and then spread on a baking sheet and bake to firm. I don't remember what was in it, but it didn't have any flour, just some seasoning like maybe a little garlic (not a lot since too much is bad).

I have a book and was looking at it one day and for the first several recipes it calls for onions. I would NEVER use them now that I know that onions in any form are toxic to dogs. I haven't tried the recipes in there, but it does have others without those ingredients.

Fancy thanks for the info I will come up with something else then. Maybe almond and coconut and teff flour mixed in with the regular blend of gluten free flour. Do you think it would work? Lucinda

I don't know if it is allergies or what, but I have noticed that most dog foods will say they have "No Soy" in recent years. I think that most dogs are sensitive to it or something.

Do you think using part soy flour would work with other gluten free flour? I want to make the peanutbutter oatmeal ones. Lucinda

I found the gluten free flour works well for biscuits and I have also used garbanzo bean flour for my dog biscuits, more protein and it works well with the oatmeal and peanut butter ones.

I have taken 3 of these recipes, a variety and will try them. Nice to treat my furry children.

peanut butter cookies

I made these for our dogs at the shelter I work at, they loved them

Ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour (you can use another type of flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup peanut butter, chunky or smooth (I used smooth this time)
1 1/4 cups hot water
Additional flour for rolling
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350° F
Mix dry ingredients together.


The mind that is anxious about future events is miserable.

I got one of those electric doggie biscuit makers for Christmas! I've made my dogs chicken flavor biscuits, beef flavor biscuits and peanut butter biscuits with a yogurt icing

They really like them!

Build PBJ sandwich, place on plate. Walk in living room, set plate on coffee table. Turn your head for three seconds. Voila!! Instant doggie treat!!

Dos love carrots, dogs love peanut butter,. Spread peanut butter on a carrot, place in freezer just long enough for peanut butter to get slightly hard so it won't slide off. Use as a doggie wand to get her/him to do what you want, they will follow you anywhere!!
Added bonus is he entertainment you get when the roof of their mouth gets filled with the butter! Fun times!

I do a lot of training for the conformation ring and I make my dogs jerky for bait slicing beef liver fairly thin and putting it in my dehydrator overnight. I store it in the freezer and take out enough for each training session. I tried it with beef tongue, but it's very tough! The dogs like it but its too tough for bait in the ring.

Our dogs love yams so I make fries in the oven only I let them cook longer on a low temperature in the oven until they are slightly chewy. So good for them.

Thanks Alec! I have used some small biscuits but they wedged in there and he never got them out. Maybe as he gets older he will figure it out!

İce lollies! İ feed my dogs on guts and lung from the butcher. İ cut up small pieces and freeze them. They make very acceptable treats when we go for walks.

Those recipes sound great! I think my dog would like the tuna one. Does anyone know from a vet what really are OK to give to dogs? I am sure that these homemade treats can be healthier and cheaper.

Niki, thank you for that info. Venture can't have too much of any grain, so if he was getting much I guess the potato flour would be goood for him. He can have a little grain (has even been enjoying a little bread once in a while -- a splurge), but very much and he is in trouble. His brother was worse.

For anyone with dogs that have wheat intolerance, potato flour, rice flour and seed flours are good substitutes in these recipes :)
