Dog Cookie Recipes

Dogs are regarded not just as the natural extension of the family, but are very much a part of the family itself.

Many dog owners treat their dogs like any other family member rather than just a pet. Buying commercial dog foods and treats is not always safe as you are not aware of exactly what goes into the foods. So the best way to keep a track of this is by using natural homemade dog food recipes and treats for your dog.

Dogs love cookie treats, so you can get innovative by using dog cookie recipes to prepare irresistible but healthy dog treats. All you need to do is get a mix of vegetables, meats and starches

Two examples of quick and easy homemade dog cookie recipes are:

  • The ingredients you will need are three cups of uncooked oatmeal, three cups whole wheat flour, five tablespoons of softened margarine, half cup of wheat germ, quarter cup of plain molasses one cup water and one cup milk. First you need to preheat the oven to 300°F/150C.

    Next grease a cookie sheet. First mix the flour and wheat germ in a big bowl and then drop all the other ingredients into the bowl and mix it well. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Once it is cooled remove the dough and roll it out carefully. Cut it out in cookie shapes that you want and place them on the greased baking sheet so that they don’t stick. Now bake it in the preheated oven at 300°F.Once it is cool watch your dogs enjoy this treat.
  • Another quick dog cookie recipe can be prepared with the following ingredients - you will need 1 cup of no fat milk powder, one cup of whole wheat flour, half cup vegetable oil, and one beaten egg, half a cup of boiling water, two beef soup cubes and two tablespoons of brown sugar.
