I added an extra egg, powdered milk, chicken broth in place of the water, half a jar of peanut butter, and crumbled bacon. I also used 1 cup of rolled oats in place of 3/4 cup of the whole wheat flour. The beauty of this recipe is that you can add in just about anything that can be mixed easily, and it will work. Used part rendered beef fat since I only had 3 strips of bacon. I wasn't up to rolling and cutting, so I just rolled little balls and flattened them to bake. You can pack them closely together on the baking sheet, since they don't expand as they bake. Remember to store in the fridge, as they don't contain preservatives and will get moldy in time. I feel good about giving these out as treats because they're all natural and I know exactly what went into them. My Westie, my daughter's mixed breed and her boyfriend's puggle will do back flips to get their jaws around one of these! Edited to add:No need to buy bacon. Save all trimmings from steak, chicken (plus skin,) pork,etc. in the freezer. When you have a handful or two, render (fry on low for about 15-20 minutes to melt off the fat.) Chop up the pieces left in the rendering pan and put them in the mix with the rendered fat. No expensive bacon needed. That's stuff you'd normally throw in the trash. You're recycling, AND your doggie will go nuts - promise!-28 Dec 2008

my dogs love this and other dogs do too. Even fussy dogs. I don't use eggs or milk, and add a teaspoon of baking powder. will try adding corn meal next time. I flatten the dough with my palm, bake, and leave the pan of biscuits in the oven after turning the oven off so that the biscuits get hard and dry.-01 Jul 2008

These were great, according to my dogs ;-) Both dogs loved them. I diced up a pound of bacon and cooked it adding the bacon bits along with the fat. I increased the recipe size then added more fat and bacon. It was a hit! I refrigerated the leftovers and even froze some... thinking my dogs wouldn't eat them so quickly. They were gone within the week! I'm making more today at my dogs request!! Oh, I also wanted to mention that salt is not healthy for dogs so I'd advise omitting it from the recipe. Thanks for sharing!!!-12 Sep 2008


Recipe: Homemade Bacon Dog Biscuits

M ost dog owners assume that making their own dog treats will be time consuming and difficult. In reality, it's easy and homemade dog treats are much healthier than most of the commercial treats you find on pet store shelves. You'll also have the peace of mind of knowing exactly what ingredients are in the treats that you're feeding your dog.

While some recipes take a lot of prep work or require special baking tools, this one is very simple. And what dog doesn't like the flavor of bacon?

My favorite thing about making my own dog treats is that I can choose how healthy the ingredients are. I substitute whole wheat flour when possible and buy as many natural, fresh, organic ingredients as I can.

You can also add supplements to your homemade dog treats, like glucosamine and chondroitin. In biscuits like these, I like to add a couple of tablespoons of fish oil. It's great for skin and coat health!


This recipe from design-milk requires only two ingredients and takes 20-25 minutes of baking time.

Ingredients

2 cups of 100% organic whole wheat flour (you can also use spelt, wheat germ, rolled oats, or a combination). Grain-free options include chickpea flour.

2 (4 oz) jars of pureed baby food like beef, chicken, sweet potato, or whatever flavor your pet fancies.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • In a bowl, combine the flour and baby food to form a stiff dough. Add additional flour or water as needed.
  • Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Use a knife, pizza cutter, or cookie cutter to cut shapes.
  • Place treats about 1/2 inch apart on a cookie sheet, lined with parchment or silicone baking mat.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Allow dog biscuits to cool completely before storing them. Store them in a paper bag. You can use an air-tight container for storage, but the treats might soften. They’ll still be edible. They should last for a couple of weeks in a cool, dry place.

We started feeding our dogs raw dog food over a year ago and noticed significant changes pretty quickly. Not only were their coats shinier, but their demeanor became mellow and calm.

One change we never expected? They turned up their noses at anything processed.

It's nearly sacrilegious at our house to go without a treat, so making our own has been a great alternative, and these are a couple of my go-to recipes

They're quick, easy to make, and can be made ahead in batches, so they're able to enjoy them for a couple of weeks. Not only is it a money saver, but also lets me control what they're made of, and how big they are.

A note about the flour: I use sprouted whole wheat flour as it can be easier to digest, although whole wheat pastry or spelt will work just as well

How to Make Long Lasting Dog Treats?

There are many methods to extend the shelf life of homemade dog treats. For instance, you can make a dog treat last longer by removing the excess moisture from it. For this purpose, you may have to bake a little longer. Similarly, allowing treats to cool before storing is another way of preserving freshness.

In addition to these techniques, you can also use natural preservatives (as ingredients) to make long lasting dog treats. Nutrients, like Vitamin C and Vitamin E, are quite effective for keeping things fresh. Likewise, you can use spices, such as cinnamon, rosemary, and sage, for preserving baked goods. The following is a list of long lasting recipes that can be cooked at home.

Long Lasting Dog Snacks

Dogs are extremely fond of snacks but the regular consumption of commercial dog treats can be problematic. These healthy cookies serve as a perfect alternative because they are made from natural ingredients. Not only are these snacks nutritious, but they also have a long shelf life.


Bacon Dog Treats

I had a lot of bacon left after using only two slices for recipe testing. I figured I’d put them to good use in these dog treats for Butters and Ollie – that is, after Jason voiced his concerns that I should save the leftover bacon for his breakfast needs rather than serving them up to the dogs.

Even so, the dogs ended up getting the bacon, and boy were they in for a treat.

Now there’s actually only two slices of bacon here. The majority of the bacon actually comes from the fat – good old greasy bacon fat. That and whole wheat flour, old fashioned oats and pumpkin.

From there you can cut into your desired shapes. I used these personalized bones from Etsy, which just makes dog treats that much more fun to make.

I should also mention that Butters and Ollie not only enjoyed these but they both felt the need to eat these under the couch in complete darkness and privacy. Yes, I guess it’s just that good.


1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

3) stir in milk, beef stock/water, salt, and bacon grease

4) mix in flour slowly, until the a dough that can be molded with your fingers is created

5) you can roll out the dough with a rolling pin and then cut into shapes with a cookie cutter, or roll it into small balls (that’s what i did, since it was faster).

6) bake 35 minutes in oven

7) Make sure to wait to give them to your dog until they are fully cooled down! You can even try one, they kind of taste like croutons!


How to store homemade dog treats

If you live in a cooler, less humid climate, you can store these treats in a cute dog treat jar on the counter for about a week.

Keep in mind there are no preservatives, so they can’t sit out as long as store-bought dog cookies.

Because I live in a warmer, humid climate, I’d only keep them on the counter for a few days, then store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

You can also freeze them for up to 3 months and take out a few at a time, which is what I do most of the time.

Sweet Potato Chews

1 x Large Sweet Potato, washed & dried

Preheat oven to 120° C
Line a tin with baking paper.
Cut the potato into slices about 1cm thick
Place on baking tray and bake for 3 hours, turning half way through.
Cool completely on a wire rack.

Although these treats are dried, keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. You can freeze them for up to 4 months.
Degree of Chewiness – Baking for 3 hours results in a soft, but chewy dog treat. If your dog prefers more of a crunch, then bake for an additional 20-30 minutes. When you take the sweet potatoes out of the oven, they may at first appear to be too soft. Let them cool completely on a wire rack before you decide whether or not to bake them longer. This is because they will continue to dry or harden while cooling.
