A DOGABLY PAWFECT HOMEMADE TREAT

Thanks to Bo at Bo's Bowl for a yummy treat and today's post.

Quick Dog Treats - A Recipe for the Pups!
Since we have three VERY SPOILED pups...we go through a lot of dog treats!  Not all of them are homemade, but I do enjoy making them...and they do enjoy eating them!  And this is the easiest recipe I have found...no rolling...no cookie cutters...and only two ingredients.  And it is much better for your waistline to make treats for your pups, than for yourself.

Quick Dog Treats
adapted from Eco Dog by Marshall & Deskevich

1 cup wheat germ
2- 4oz jars baby food (meat or vegetable flavor)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a baking sheet.  In a bowl combine the ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place on the greased baking sheet.  Flatten the balls with the back of a fork.  Then bake for 25 to 35 minutes.  Cool the treats on a wire rack.

For variation: Add 1 tbs pureed  garlic to ward off fleas, or 2 tbs ground flax seed meal for a shiny coat.


Have you ever tried taking group photos with dogs?..I think it's impossible...especially when treats are involved.  So Sampson got to be the lucky model in the photos...I'll have to make some more treats so y'all can meet the other dogs.

  4. Sampson? First time I hear of him! Who is he? The neighbour's?

    I must confess I LOVE BABY FOOD. The little fruit jars especially! I use to bring them for lunch at the office to the dismay of my colegues. ;)
