I made these for my dog once and he loved them. They are healty too!

Puppy Treats

(2) 4 ounce jars of chicken baby food
1/4 cup dried milk
1/2 cup wheat germ

Mix, shape into a bone if you like, and bake at 350 degrees until brown. Cool and serve.

Dog Biscuits

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup milk
1 large egg
2 Tbsp. garlic
2 Tbsp. molasses
1 stick soft margarine

1. Mix egg, garlic, margarine, and molasses in a bowl.

2. Add flour, then milk ( a little at a time).

3. Roll out to 3/8" thick. Use cookie cutters and make as many as you can.

4. Place treats on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes or til brown. Cool and serve.

My little beagle had a bad ticker and couldn't have much sodium, so I always made him home made biscuits. They were much like these recipes.

When he smelled them baking he ran to the kitchen and sat in front of the oven patiently till they were done and he could have some.
Dogs do love garlic and baby food!

Wow, thanks! I will have to try this for our Shelby.
I cook for her about once a week, rice, ground turkey or chicken, carrots/peas, ground flax seed, olive oil, powderd milk. The vet says this is okay. I'm thinking of adding fish-oil capsules (but I'll give her that separately).
I have been mixing one cup of the cooked food with one cup of Iams dry food, once a day. Shelby is a golden retriever, weighs 75 lbs. Last week, I found out (through a friend of mine who subscribes to PETA and other anti-cruelty-to-animal websites) that Iams performs cruel tests on the animals for whom it purports to care. I haven't checked this out thoroughly, though.

Middie, pigs ears can carry salmonella. See Here

My dogs scarfed up the homemade biscuits like there was no tomorrow!

I can relate Middie, my dog loves pigs ears, but I had to shy away from them because he was getting too heavy, and had to change his diet. So I use a dry dog food, nothing canned anymore because that was too fatty for him, and we walk him alot more. I think I treat my dog better than me

But if we're walking them we're treating ourselves good too!


Gidgett was spayed today so she is very much under the weather - it cost more than $400! I think we will be seeking another vet!

Of course she is milking it for all it's worth - since I'm a wimp it's worth alot!

I'll try these for her!

Thanks for posting!

Are they suppose to be soft? Or am I not cooking them long enough?
I cooked both :o)
They liked the wheat germ ones soft, they aren't too picky anyway. The molasses ones are a little soft too. They're kinda rubbery. Is that right or no?

I don't think I'll be bitten by a vampire for a while the garlic is strong.
