The world’s best dog biscuit recipe!

Bev is our in-house canine behaviourist/dietitian and last week I decided to try and make her favourite 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 stopped and took notice!  I had strangers dogs coming up to me and then try to tear them out of my pocket and some people asking me to make some for them while others insisted I should be selling them!! Hence why I call this ‘The world’s best dog biscuit recipe!’.

For this recipe you’ll need…

Ingredients

1 lb / 450g pigs liver, 1 lb / 2 cups of cornflour, 170g / 3/4 cup potato flour or semolina, 1 egg plus milk if more liquid needed, 2 grated carrots or a grated apple, 1 clove of fresh garlic (but isn’t garlic bad for dogs?).

 

Step by step guide

chopped liver

Cut 450grams of liver into chunks and then blend.

grated apple

Add half a cup of grated apple to blended liver.

grated carrot

Or add half a cup of grated carrot instead!

chopped garlic

Add one clove of garlic!

corn flour

Add 450g/2 cups of cornflour

semolina

Add ¾ cups / 170g potato flour or semolina

adding eggs and milk to mix

Add an egg, a splash of milk and mix!

rolled out dog biscuit dough

Roll out, cut and bake at 350 F/180 C for 15-20 mins.

Homemade dog biscuits…DONE!!

How to store

As a general guide if meat protein is present in recipe then it will last around 3 to 5 days stored in a cool place.  If it has second class protein in it eg. cheese, lentils, eggs, etc, then they will store for about 10 days in a cool place. You can use cake tins lined with baking paper – greaseproof. If there is no meat or second class proteins present then it will last around 3 weeks before they go soft like human biscuits.

Wow! Dribble loves these. Didn’t have any semolina so got 170g of her food and ground it up and used that. Added grated carrot. Much too sticky to roll out so I spread it on baking parchment on a baking tray. Baked it and cut it into squares as soon as it came out of the oven. Brilliant healthy snack. Thank you for the recipe. A definite winner.

I would like to add oatmeal instead of flour. Any recommendations?

Every time I make this, I end with a big sticky mess for dough (I use whole wheat flour if that matters?). It’s such a big hit with my dogs though that I just keep making it even though it requires a lot of elbow grease! Any tips you might have? Thanks!

Hi Jamie, Just found your recipes which I am going to try on my 2 puppies. I have just made some biscuits using tinned pilchards in tomato, egg, grated carrots and wholemeal flour all mixed up together and rolled out and cut into squares. My puppies loved them as did the greyhound next door and a friend’s puppy. So now I’m getting into doggy baking big time. Incidentally the founder of Denes pet foods recommends garlic be given to dogs every day as it deters fleas. Don’t know if it works but they have to be the smelly capsules. Look… Read more »
