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.

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.

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.

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.

I'd like to see some softer recipes, too, because Venture has problems eating the harder things, I think (at least I think that is why he often doesn't finish his food). He is also sensitive to any grains, though he can eat a little, so if anyone knows anything that would work without grains it would be nice.

Oh! I'll definitely be using the pumpkin recipe. Our youngest is having his first birthday this October and we're having a puppy party for him.

The Pumpkin treats and the Apple Treats are an absolute MUST. He already tries to steal our apples and carrots when we're eating them!

Though I must ask, are there any recipes for treats that are not hard (ie smushy yet still hold shape)? Our Gizmo was abused before we got him and he has few teeth. We stick to those easy to eat meals for him that require little chewing. We don't want to leave him out of the festivites of the party though...

I'm new to Sparkpeople and I found this group and thought I'd join. I sometimes dog-sit for friends and family and last year for Christmas I made all the dogs I dog-sat for a Christmas stocking. I included a personalized toy and some home-made dog treats. This is one of the recipes I used. They are called "Apple Cinnamon Drops" and I have heard nothing but good news about them. They are also quite tasty for a quick snack for yourself! ;)

Apple Cinnamon Drops
1 large apple
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup oatmeal
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/8 cup whole wheat flour

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 ° F (180 ° C).

Core, slice and mince the apple (use a food processor if you have one). In a large bowl, combine the minced apple bits, honey, water, cinnamon, and oatmeal. Gradually blend in the wheat flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.

In a small bowl, add 1/8 cup wheat flour. Spoon the dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches (5cm) apart. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in the wheat flour (to prevent sticking), flatten each spoonful of dough into a circle. Adjust the size of the drops based on how big a treat you like to feed your dog.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each cookie to brown evenly on both sides. Reduce oven temperature to 325 ° F (180 °C). Return to oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Let cool overnight.

Makes about 3 dozen crunchy cookies, depending on how big you make them.

i don't remember the exact title of the book, but it's something like everyday cooking for dogs

Egg Drop Soup
1/8 cup oats
1/4cup low sodium chicken broth
1 large egg

cook the oats in the chicken broth, then cook the egg in the oats. (My husband mixed this with our dogs' regular kibble since one of them wasn't feeling too good the night before. both of our dogs couldn't eat it fast enough. LOL

I found this recipe for Tuna Treats and my dogs just LOVE them! Fiona, my Border Collie who tries to pretend treats are beneath her dignity will do anything for them! The beagle gets up on his hind feet and dances as soon as I say Tuna! I think they'd be good with chicken, as well, just haven't tried that yet.

2 (6 ounce) cans tuna, liquid and all
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees F
Grease a 9x9 in. cake pan (I use the small Pampered Chef Bar Pan)

Mix all ingredients together.
Spread into greased pan
Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.
Cool for about 10 minutes, then cut into pieces (I do 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch)
Cool completely.
You can store these in either the fridge or the freezer, and my dogs just LOVE then frozen! Fishcicles!

i used to have a dog treat business (out of home) and i am a canine nutriton consultant. i have a ton of recipes so ill start posting them... in moderation. also i have substitutions for all of those with food allergies and intollerances including gluten free, because everything i made was gluten free. dogs, like most people as well, are gluten intollerant... we just dont always notice it because it may not be as severe in some as it is in others. i have to look back at my recpies now because most of the time i just toss things into my mixer, roll it out, cut it, and toss it in the oven until it looks done lol!

Glad you liked them! Our dogs love the homemade chicken jerky treats! They are so easy to make, too.

I just saved all of your recipes to a Word document and am going to try each one. Oh..I don't bake for my hubby...only the dogs..LOL. OK..maybe once in a while..but more often for the dogs.

For a summer treat (instead of those disgusting smelling Frosty Paws).

HOME MADE FROSTY PAWS TREATS

32 oz. plain yogurt
One banana
2 T. Peanut Butter
2 T. Honey

Blend together. Freeze in non-stick muffin tins and then pop them out and wrap individually. I also use the small individual jello cups, small yogurt cups, or another small plastic cup. That way I have something to hold while they eat.



I can do it!!

I've been making this one for a long time. All of our dogs have enjoyed these and they are simple to make.

Dog Breakfast Bars

12 cups uncooked oatmeal
4 cups whole wheat flour
8 eggs
¾ cup oil
2/3 cup honey
½ cup molasses
2 cups milk
1 large can solid pack pumpkin (optional)
3 to 4 mashed bananas (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease 2 cookie sheets.
Dump everything into a very large bowl. Mix everything together (I use my hands to mix). Pat onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 325 for 1 hour. After 1 hour, turn oven off, crack oven door and allow cookies to cool in oven. Break into any size you want. These freeze well…these are their favorites.



I can do it!!

I just made these for my Furbabies & the gobbled them right up...

2 cups whole-wheat flour (I used white, since I didn't have whole-wheat on hand)
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla.

Preheat oven to 375'F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container.

I took a picture... I made mine a tad too thick, but they didn't mind. Haha.

Jeanne, I think you'd be able to.

Here's one for Henley. I got this recipe from our Dog Lovers team years back. Oreo drools when she sees these.

1 T honey
1 tsp peanut butter (you can add a little more, I usually use 2)
3/4 C flour
1 egg
1/4 C vegetable oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 C rolled oats
1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Microwave honey & peanut butter for about 10-20 seconds until soft enough to mix. Add other ingredients and mix well. Roll into teaspoon balls (or bigger if you have a bigger dog) place on greased cookie sheet. Using a fork, press down making a criss/cross (just like you would for peanut butter cookies). Bake 8-10 min, cool and store in air tight container.

I added a pic on our team page of her with her cookie so everyone can get an idea of how big I make hers.

I haven't tried these but want to make them for Toruk who is allergic to wheat products.

Homemade gluten-free Dog Biscuits
created by Carol Kicinski of Simply...Gluten-free

Ingredients
21/2 cups gluten-free oats
11/2 cups potato starch (not potato flour)
1/2 cup white or brown rice flour
3 tbls flax seed meal
1 tsp sea salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup dry milk powder
11/2 cups water
1 sweet potato, scrubbed but not peeled

Directions
Put 2 cups of oats in a blender or food processor and grind into a fine powder. Combine with the remaining 1/2 cup oats, potato starch, rice flour, flax seed meal and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the egg and olive oil. Mix the dry milk power with the water and combine with the rest of the ingredients.

Grate the sweet potato using the large holes of a box grater. Stir into the mixture. The dough should be firm, smooth and workable. If not add more rice flour. Cover the bowl with a towel and let set for 20 minutes to let the moisture distribute.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or slip mats.

Flour a work surface with rice flour and roll the dough out to either 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch thick ( depending on the size of your dog). Cut the biscuits out with a dog bone shape (or any shape you like) cookie cutter, pressing firmly to cut through the sweet potato. Transfer the biscuits to the prepared pans.

Bake for 11/2 to 2 hours or until the biscuits are dry and firm. Let cool completely.

Store in a food storage bag or airtight container.



I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

Does anyone make their own dog food? With all the recalls lately, I'm really considering it.

Oreo's favorite treats are her Liver treats

1lb chicken liver
1 cup corn meal
2 cups flour
2 tsp garlic powder

Liquify chicken livers in blender or food processor. In seperate bowl, mix corn meal, flour & garlic powder. Add chicken liver and blend together. Spread in 9x13 greased cookie sheet. Bake 350 for 15 minutes, no longer. Cool, cut into bite sized pieces. Store in freezer.

Now with summer coming on she'll get her ice cream.

32 oz vanilla or plain yogurt
2T peanut butter
2T honey

Microwave peanut butter & honey for a few seconds to soften. Add yogurt and mix. Using a tablespoon, spoon mixture into ice cube trays and freeze.


and another easy summer treat, I call them Tuna cubes. When you drain a can of tuna (water) drain into ice cube trays and put a few kibble on top. Freeze.

Be sure to label the ice cube trays so you don't accidently use them in your drink!! emoticon

I have corgis (herding dogs), one Christmas I did homemade peanut butter sheep (cut them out with cookie cutters) and then used white chocolate (it doesn't have any cocoa) to pipe on the "wool." We gave them out to all of our doggie friends - they were a huge hit. I would imagine you could do the same thing with the pumpkin peanut butter ones too.

Homemade Chicken jerky:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

Boneless, skinless chicken breast

Slice chicken breast(s) into very thin..about 1/4 in or less... pieces (with the grain gives you larger pieces). Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven at 250 for about 2 hours. Remove from the oven, remove from baking sheet, cool on a plate. Our dogs LOVE these and you know where they come from!

I can do it!!

I found this one on AllRecipes.com and my dog just loves them. I did increase the pumpkin from 1/2 cup to one full cup and made smaller cookies, so I only baked them 15 minutes and they turned out awesome.

We have two German Shepherd Dogs, Sasha and Dieken. They love these liver brownies! I will post a link to the website because I think the recipe is protected.


They basically use fresh liver, eggs, oil and flour. I cut them in 1/2" squares and keep them in the freezer, thawing out a day's portion.

thank you for the recipe! I'm sure my Toruk will enjoy them (maybe me too). Do you have the calorie count on each treat? Tomorrow I have to start Toruk on thyroid medicine and he needs (like me) to lose his winter weight to be healthy. I have one that uses sweet potato and baby food turkey in it that I can't find it sounded good. Lucinda emoticon

I think it'd be fine, just remember to peel the sweet potato.

I will try those, but I'm thinking of putting sweet potato as a swap for the pumpin, what do you think?

Thank you so much! My dogs love their treats (just like their Mom) and I am always looking for homemade recipes. Great idea!

I posted this link on this team way back in 2008, it may be of use to the newer members and some of the older ones that have forgotten it. Lots of recipes here.

We are starting a new thread for dog treat recipes. Feel free to add dog food recipes as well. If you chose to submit a recipe you found on-line, then please submit the site you found the recipe. I'll go first

Pumpkin Dog Treats

Ingredients:

1/2 c. canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
4 tbsp molasses
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Blend all of the wet ingredients (pumpkin, molasses, vegetable oil, water) together.

3. Add the dry ingredients (wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon) and stir until a soft dough forms.

4. Grab the dough by teaspoonfuls and roll it into balls with your hands (hint: wet hands work best). Drop the balls onto a cookie sheet/pizza pan and flatten them with a fork.

5. Bake until hard (approximately 25 min.). If you want them a bit crispier, you can just turn off your oven and let them cool in there overnight.

A lot of dogs, including my hound, are allergic to wheat. Just substitute the flour of your choice.
I found this recipe from www.dogtreatrecipes.org/
