Wow, love the variety of recipes! I will try out as many as I can but it may take me some time to do that. Then I will definitely post Cocoa's feedback.

Finally-the dog treat recipes.




The recipes in this collection are all recipes developed by our fosters or friends. If any of these recipes are similar to those published elsewhere, we apologize. We have tested each recipe for accuracy and have tried to exclude those things we don't want our dogs to eat: refined sugars, processed flours, etc. We have learned that our dogs love molasses and garlic and mint and any recipe with peanut butter.



A Word About Ingredients

We have eliminated salt from most of our recipes. If you are concerned about any of the ingredients in our recipes or if your dog is on a special diet, consult with your vet about the ingredients.
If your dog is lactose-intolerant, consider using water or vegetable stock (made fresh) in place of the milk or yogurt, or one of the lactose-free milk products on the market.
If your dog has a known allergy to corn, substitute cornmeal with rice flour.
Bouillon cubes have a high salt content which is why we use fresh meat stock.
Some breeds, such as dalmatians, should not be fed organ meat. Do not make the liver-based treats for your dalmatian.
Almost all of the biscuits are best kept in the refrigerator or freezer.



These are the bread machine dough biscuits. My dogs would sit and drool while the bread machine was making the dough, and when the biscuits were baking. There are about 40 more recipes if anyone is interested.



Bread Machine Dog Biscuit Recipes

NOTE: All bread machine recipes were developed using a 1-1/2 pound bread maker. You may need to make adjustments to the liquid or amount of flour if you have a 1 pound or 2 pound bread machine.

1. Dexter's Favourite Cheese Stix

INGREDIENTS:

7/8 c warm water
1 medium egg
2 T corn syrup
2 T vegetable oil

****************
2 c whole wheat flour
1 c multigrain flour
2 T lowfat powdered milk
1/4 c cornmeal
1/3 c parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder

*************
1-1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Topping:

1 beaten egg white
parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS:

1. Using the dough cycle of the bread machine, place the wet ingredients in the bread pan.
2. Place a piece of waxed paper on countertop. Measure all dry ingredients except the yeast onto the waxed paper. Cut with a bread knife to blend.
3. Pour dry ingredients on top of wet ingredients in the bread pan.
4. In the center of the dry ingredients, make a small well using a bread knife. Measure the yeast into the well. Start dough cycle.

When the bread machine beeps, turn off bread machine, remove bread pan. Divide dough into 4 balls. Roll each ball into a rectangle 1/4" thickness on lightly floured surface or cutting board. Cut into strips 1/4" wide. Twist each stick 6-8 times. Place on an ungreased baking sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rise about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325. Bake for about 30 minutes until golden. Remove from oven, brush each stick with beaten egg white and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Reduce heat to 200, return sticks to oven for 45 minutes. When cool. store in airtight container. Makes about 36 bread sticks.

2. Four Paws Up Biscuits

(So named because there are 4 dogs in residence and all of them love these crisp biscuits that are reminiscent of rye crackers)

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup warm beef stock

****************
1 c whole wheat flour
1 c rye flour
1 c cracked wheat
1/4 c lowfat powdered milk
1/4 c parmesan cheese
2 tsp garlic powder

*************
1-1/2 tsp active dry yeast

DIRECTIONS:

1. Using the dough cycle of the bread machine, place the warm beef stock in the bread pan.
2. Place a piece of waxed paper on countertop. Measure all dry ingredients except the yeast onto the waxed paper. Cut with a bread knife to blend.
3. Pour dry ingredients on top of beef stock in the bread pan.
4. In the center of the dry ingredients, make a small well using a bread knife. Measure the yeast into the well. Start dough cycle.

When the bread machine beeps, turn off bread machine, remove bread pan. Turn dough out onto lightly-floured surface. Knead for 2-3 minutes. Roll dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut with cookie cutter, place on an ungreased baking sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover with clean dish towel and let rise about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 325. Bake for about 45 minutes. Turn off oven and leave overnight to harden. Store in airtight container. Makes about 30 3" dog-bone shaped biscuits.

NOTE: Because there is no sugar or salt in these, the yeast is not activated and the biscuits do not rise like bread.

3. Casey's Carrot Biscuits

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 cup warm vegetable stock
2/3 c finely grated carrot
1 T honey
****************
2 c whole wheat flour
1 c barley flour
3/4 tsp. Dried parsley
1/4 c lowfat powdered milk

Bake for about 45 minutes. Turn off oven and leave overnight to harden. Store in airtight container. Makes about 30 3" dog-bone shaped biscuits.

Traditional method directions:

3. Add the yeast mixture once it has doubled.
4. Gradually add the dry ingredients (you may wish to measure all the dry ingredients onto waxed paper and add them gradually to the wet ingredients).

6. Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead so that it is no longer sticky (about 5-7 minutes).

4. Fooey-Booey Chewy Bones

Fooey-Booey is the nickname of one of our volunteer's Newfoundland. A very food-motivated dog, his favourite past time is to lie in front of the oven and watch the dog cookies bake. Walking across the kitchen floor has gotten so dangerous that the volunteer has considered a sign by the kitchen that would read "Danger, Slime Slick Zone" to warn all who enter that she is baking dog cookies and Fooey-Booey is on duty in front of the oven.

I have been dying to make some dog treats but have been so preoccupied with baking loaves of bread, I haven't taken the time to do it but I am going to have to do it soon as there are so many recipes to try out on our little Cocoa Paloma that I can hardly wait. Thanks & I will get around to getting started soon. I promised Cocoa. Yes, I know, she'll forget.
