I’ve decided to experiment on making, homemade doggy biscuits. If you have a dog, I suggest making your own treats, it’s simple, fun, and you don’t have to worry about any hidden ingredients you don’t know about.
Whenever I’m at the pet store, I’ve noticed all the different types of biscuits they sell, so I decided to try and make my own just for fun, not knowing if my dog will eat them. It seems easy enough! It won’t be the first time, I’ve baked or burnt something in the oven.
easy to make
I started researching, how to make the biscuits and discovered its quite easy. I gathered all the ingredients, followed the steps, mixed it all together, flattened it, shaped it with the bone shaped cookie cutter, popped it in the oven, and voila…fresh treats for your dog.
If you’re making your dog eat healthy, you can add those ingredients into the mix. I like adding flax seeds to mine, which keeps your dog’s hair looking healthy, it also helps with hair loss. I’m pretty sure there’s a variety of other ingredients you can substitute, that meets your healthier choices for your dog to eat.
I’m picky with the food Leander eats, I only give him dog food that has no corn, no fillers, no artificial preservatives, and no artificial colors. By baking your own biscuits you can control what you put in it. It’s free of unhealthy additives and preservatives, you’re giving your dog a nutritious healthy snack.
I enjoy making our dog treats with my children. I get to spend extra time with them and we all enjoy it. We laugh while mixing the ingredients and they learn something in the process. It’s a fun family learning experience.
This is not my own recipe, I get them from the internet. There are many recipes, to fit you and your dog’s choice of snack. Some have simple basic ingredients, some need a few more, but nothing to extreme. (NOTE: Make sure you also take into account your dog’s allergies, if any.)
basic baking ingredients
If you have the basic baking ingredients (flour, egg, oil, and water) and maybe peanut butter or shredded cheese, then you should be set to bake. It roughly should cost around $10 to $20, depending on your brands of preference. You can use cookie cutters, to make different sizes or shapes. I’ve made the easiest one, with basic ingredients and peanut butter. All I had to buy, was oats, since I had everything else, and used a bone shaped cookie cutter.
So if your interested, research some recipes and flavors, your dog might want to try something new. I suggest the Peanut butter, it’s easy to make with only five or six ingredients. We enjoyed making ours, it was also rewarding since, Leander loved them. Have fun baking and give your dog a fresh treat!
