  1. my dog gets really car sick how long before a journey should I give her these biscuits.

    • Hey!

      Try 30 mins before you leave. I’ve had a few dogs that suffer from travel sickness. One remedy is a good run before travelling. Tbh, if it was my dog, I’d exercise it, then car drive, somewhere nice to walk with dog, car drive, somewhere else nice and do this for a few days.


  2. Didn’t have any little men cutters so used small bone and ‘Setter’ shape cutters. Met with a little suspicion at first but now my IRS loves these.

  3. what is the store life in this xx

    • They are the longest lasting treats on my website. I know they can last two weeks in a jar.

  4. Oh nooo!! I’ve just ran out of self raising flour and i want to try these!! Grrr!! :)

    Will need to remember to check the bible of Jamie before baking in future!

    • Did you get by without or did you buy some C? Pic from you FB page looks great!

      • I found a rogue bag that had fallen to the back of the cupboard and had just enough to make these! The dogs loved them and the people at dog club thought they smelled great! A nice change from the usual pongy liver and tuna cakes we usually have smelling out our pockets. Waggy tails all around :)

  5. Great recipe, my little cocker spaniel loves these. Made them by cutting out shapes using the end of an apple corer, so they made good little bite size treats for training too. Thank you :)

      • Hi, was wondering if you use powdered ginger or fresh?

        • Looks like powdered from the pictures Di. I’m going to make these for my sister’s dog who gets really car sick, might even keep a few for my own dog too!!

        • Powdered, but either or…
