Homemade dog biscuit recipe‏

Homemade dog biscuit recipe‏

You’ve just found the world’s best dog biscuit recipe!

Bev is our in house canine behaviourist/dietitian and last week BDWS decided to try and make her dog biscuit recipe and they turned out so well!  Every dog I walked last week loved them far more than I could’ve ever have hoped for.  Even the dogs that aren’t food orientated while out stopped and took notice!  I had strangers dogs coming up to me and try to tear them out of my pocket and some people asking me to make them some and others insisting I should be sellling them!! Hence why I call this ‘The world’s best dog biscuit recipe!’ For Bev’s dog biscuit recipe you’ll need…

  1. I just finished making these today, big success! I used carrot and added some powdered kelp. I’m definitely going to be making these again and will perhaps try and exchange the liver and carrot for different ingredients like salmon and turmeric for my older boy and white fish and sweet potato for a friend whose dog has a sensitive tummy.
    Couldn’t figure out how to post pics directly here but here is a link to my blog post about them :) http://streetstosofa.wordpress.com/2014/06/26/mum-made-liver-and-carrot-treats/

  2. Hi just made these they’re great. I had to substitute some of the cornflour for rice flour as I didn’t have enough.. turned out fine although I don’t know what the nutritional differences would be. The dogs are drooling for them already. I cut some with a bone shape cutter they look great, but quicker and easier with a pizza cutter. Great website, wish my dogs lived in Scotland to go for a walk! I’ll share your recipe on our dog club site here in Minorca, if that’s ok.

    • Hi Jenny and thanks for your comments! These biccies require a bit more work than the others but I think its worth it as they so good! I just used a pizza cutter to save time too!

      Feel free to share anything you like, thanks!

  3. Hi Lily! If it was too wet just add more flour till it’s just right. The poppy seeds wouldn’t change consistency and neither would the liver. Did you add more than a splash of milk?

  4. Hi! Mine weren’t able to be rolled out because they were far too wet. I’m thinking it could have been becuase if a couple of factors- I either over blended the liver or could it be because I didn’t add the poppy seeds? Thank you :)

  5. Hi there,
    Absolutely love your blog and website, I was just wondering If I could substitute the potato flour with wholemeal? thank you very much (:

    • Hi Grace. Yeah, you can use that but I think you’ll get something a lot more bready than this but the dogs will still love it.

      Reply
      • Thank you so much for replying! Another quick question how many little biscuits does this recipe generally make. I understand it would be dependent on biscuit size but generally when you make them how many would you get? Thank you again!

  6. Hi, Do you know much about dogs trying to lose weight. I’ve got a miniature Schnauzer with a collapsed treachia and she is over weight which does not help at all. She is only about 1 kilo over but thats enought to make the breathing much worse. I’ve tried lots of prescription diets but she either wont eat them or is trying to get food all day long driving me crazy and making me give her more food. Any help gratefully received. Thanks Jill

    • Hi, Jill! Bev, our canine dietitian is unwell at the moment so unable to answer. What food does she eat? One method I’d consider for a dog constantly after food would be to buy a large kong, putting her food in that (even if that means mixing it with a little cottage cheese or something and freezing it so it becomes hard like a ice lolly. That should keep her occupied for a good while.

      From my own experience, exercise is great for losing weight, I have a couple of dogs whose weight yo-yo’s up and down but I know if I can give them an intense runabout they will lose weight just with my walk alone.

  7. I have been looking at your recipes and they look great. The only thing I would like to ask you I see you use garlic, I was on the understanding that garlic is not good for dogs.

  8. Hi there I make human cakes and biscuits to donate to animal rescue auctions and want to make some for the dogs too, also run a cafe and see lots of dig walkers so would like to make some biscuits to sell for animal rescue. What do you think would be the favourite? Also as I’m donating, the most cost effective? Thank you:)

    • This biscuit recipe and the liver cake recipe are the best, imo! I also recommend the sardine oatcakes!

  10. Dogs are not meant to have garlic, so I’ll make these without it. Otherwise they look great.

  11. Just wanted to check…I have seen numerous lists on various websites (some vetinary) that states garlic is toxic (as is onion). Just wanted to check before I make. thanks

  12. Hi, I am going to make these tomorrow – how should I store them (if they last that long!)?

    Reply
    • You can keep them in biscuit tin if they’re gonna be used within two weeks but if you freeze them then they’ll last pretty much forever and will defrost very quickly at room temperature.

  13. Going to try these the weekend! Will let you know what my dogs think and post some pics :-)

    • Thx Jessie! I’ll be very interested to see your finished biccies!

  14. If anyone has made these I’d love for you to send a pic in and let me see how they look since I bet you can make them look a lot better than I can!
