Here’s a few recipes that others have posted: www.recipesource.com has a great, long list of dog treat recipes in their

3) If the food contains BHA, BHT, or ethoxyquin, subtract 10 points
4) For every grain “mill run” or non-specific grain source, subtract 5 points
5) If the same grain ingredient is used 2 or more times in the first five ingredients (I.e. “ground brown rice”, “brewers rice”, “rice flour” are all the same grain), subtract 5 points
6) If the protein sources are not meat meal and there are less than 2 meats in the top 3 ingredients, subtract 3 points
7) If it contains any artificial colorants, subtract 3 points
8 ) If it contains ground corn or whole grain corn, subtract 3points
9) If corn is listed in the top 5 ingredients, subtract 2 more points
10) If the food contains any animal fat other than fish oil, subtract 2 points
11) If lamb is the only animal protein source (unless your dog is allergic to other protein sources), subtract 2 points

BREAD PUDDING

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Grease the inside of a baking dish with LOTS of butter or margarine. Cube 4 slices of white bread and put in baking dish. In a bowl, mix 3 eggs, cup sugar, 1/5 tsp. Salt and tsp. vanilla. Add 2 cups scalded milk and beat with wire whisk.

Pour this mixture into the baking dish over the top of the cubed bread. Place baking dish in a pan of water and bake (uncovered) for about 1 hour. Feed dog of a “pudding” at each meal.

This is especially good for a bitch that has just whelped and doesn’t want to eat. Niggles her sweet tooth, and it’s good for her.

LIVER BAIT RECIPE

1 lb. liver (beef or chicken)
1 cups flour (whole-wheat)
1 cup cornmeal
1 egg
1 tbs. Brewers yeast (opt.)
Dash of garlic powder

Put liver in the blender and blend it a bit, then add everything else (including egg shells if you want), blend well. Pour onto a flat cookie sheet (greased or sprayed). Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Score the biscuits while warm.

You can also just use beef heart cooked in water with garlic until done, then slice it up and dry it out a bit in a 200 degree oven. The dogs love this as well and it doesn’t seem to go as fast.

MACKEREL TREATS

Preheat oven to 325F, grease cookie sheet.

In a medium sized bowl mix together:
1 (15 oz) can mackerel with broth, mashed up fine (bones are very soft and
no problem when mashed)
2 T garlic powder
2 eggs
2-3 c flour

Mix it all together. Pat into greased cookie sheet so it is about 1/8″ thick. I used a bit of flour sprinkled on the top to make it pat more easily.

Bake at 325 F for about 25 minutes (more or less depending on the amount of flour in it…). Let cool. I cut it into about 1/2″ squares with a pizza cutter. Break into pieces, divide into day-sized portions and freeze until ready to use. This made about 4 day’s worth of treats so I’ll try doubling it for a week’s worth.

HOMEMADE FROSTY PAWS

Ingredients:

1 quart vanilla yogurt
1 medium banana
2 T peanut butter (I use natural style)

2 T honey

Cooking Directions: Puree the banana in a food processor (a blender would probably work fine). Add the peanut butter and honey and continue processing until smooth. Add yogurt and process just long enough to blend all ingredients together. Place 18 small paper cups (bathroom size) in a baking pan (one 9×13 or two 8×8 work well). Fill paper cups to about 2/3’s full. An ice cream scoop or a measuring cup makes the job easier. Freeze until solid. I transfer the frozen treats to zip-lock bags for storing in the freezer.

DOGGIE PEANUT BRITTLE

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Yogurt

1/2 cup Peanut butter

1 egg

2 or more cups of Kibble

Cooking directions: Beat yogurt, Peanut butter and egg together, add two cups or more of a good kibble (in our case, something they like but don’t eat regularly) and mix well. Spread on a greased baking sheet and put in a 275 F oven for half an hour. After half an hour, turn the sheet over. It will break up a bit, but that doesn’t matter. Bake another half hour and then turn the oven off. When everything has cooled, remove from oven and break up into pieces small enough to store easily.

SALMON TREATS

Set oven at 375°

1 can salmon (or mackerel) undrained
2 eggs
1 cup rice flour, split in half (can sub regular flour)

Pour can of salmon into blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add eggs and blend, then 1/2 cup flour, blend, then last 1/2 cup flour and blend until smooth. Pour into 8×8 baking dish (probably want to lightly grease) and bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into appropriate size. This probably freezes well – I forgot to ask. The small pieces were soft enough to mash up with the fingers, but didn’t crumble.

RAJAH’S SALMON TREATS

1 can flaked salmon
2 Cups Wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup water
1/2 liquid smoke
1/4 tsp Rosemary (I use dried and add to the water in the beginning to give it a chance to hydrate)

Preheat oven to 350°F

In a blender or food processor, add can of Salmon (water bones and all), and all other ingredients, and blend until well blended. Remove, and knead until it is a soft dough.

Separate into 2 balls

*On lightly floured surface, roll ball to about 1/4 inch thickness and place on a lightly greased Cookie sheet. I use a pizza cutter and cut into small bite sized rectangle, if you prefer you CAN use this recipe with cookie cutters.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, remove, cool, and pamper the puppy.

This recipe makes 2 cookie sheets of biscuits. I store them in a baggy in the fridge.

PEAMUTT BUTTER

Peamutt Butter

1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup water
1 cup oatmeal
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl combine peanut butter, oil, and water. Gradually add flour, then oatmeal. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a cookie cutter. Place on an un greased cookie sheet.

HOWL WHEAT

Howl Wheat
One bite of this bone and your dog will howl for more…
4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oatmeal, 1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup wheat germ
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons chopped parsley * *Dogs “prefur” fresh ingredients, but 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley may be substituted. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flour, wheat germ, oatmeal and parsley. Add water and oil to dry ingredients. Knead for 2-3 minutes. Roll dough to 1/4″ thickness and cut with cookie cutter. Bake at 375 degrees on an un greased cookie sheet for 30 minutes or until edges start to brown. Makes 2 1/2 dozen.

MAYONNAISE FORMULA

4 ounces canned evaporated milk (not the low fat or condensed)

4 ounces natural baccilus plain yogurt found in many health food stores

1 egg yolk

1 Tablespoon mayonnaise not salad dressing and NOT Miracle Whip

1 dropper of infant children’s pediatric liquid vitamin without flouride

This really did work for me as my orphans were chubby and alert earlier than most. The most important thing is to determine the dailey amount they need to gain and thrive. It would also be beneficial when supplementing a Mother until the milk is plentiful.

HATE TO COOK DOG TREATS

Preheat the oven to 350. Oil a cookie sheet.
Take a pound of chicken livers(which odds are are packed in “liquid” which you should toss in as well), pulverize in the blender. Add in 2 eggs, a cup of flour and a cup of cornmeal and some garlic (you can buy garlic in olive oil in a jar if you want). Blend it all together.

Take the resulting glop and spread it on the sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes. Cut it up into small pieces, freeze and use as needed for training. These will not keep unrefigerated and are best used for training: I pull out what I need from the freezer.

BOURBON LIVER STRIPS
(not necessary to leave the house while it’s cooking)

Put 1 lb. liver in pan.
Add water to barely cover it.
Put 1/2 c. Bourbon in the water and add a tablespoon of sugar.
Cover pan. Poach it over a low flame.
