Cheesy dog biscuits

Homemade dog biscuits

So with these cheese dog treats the key is to roll them out thin, cut them out small and cook them quick!  Nice with a strong cheese taste!

I’ve been checking out dog biscuit recipes online.  They vary so much and it’s difficult to find a similar theme with many looking like they are being cooked for humans rather than dogs.  Anyway, in the house I’ve got some plain flour, butter and I thought I’d use fresh Parmesan cheese which I’m hoping will add a nice flavour to the biscuits.  I’m also using some garlic to add to the flavour.


300g of plain flour, 1 crushed garlic clove (Isn’t garlic bad for dogs?), 150g of fresh Parmesan cheese, About 150-200ml of cream, 50g of butter

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.

I understood that any dairy products were bad for dogs but you use not only cheese but milk in your dog recipes. Is this ok to do?

Dogs are generally lactose intolerant. Lactose is in milk but not cream so using cheese and cream are both fine.

Just made some buiscuits along the lines of this recipe but using dried liver (blitzed to be fine crumbs) and substituted quark (fat free soft cheese) for the cream. Anyone used quark before? Any bad reactions from your furry friends? My two dachshunds are waiting to do the taste test. Hope they like them.

Could I possibly find out which type of cream you prefer to use with these? I would like to make them but don’t want to get the recipe too wrong. Thanks in advance 🙂

Just wondering what the shelf life is for these kind of treats? are they able to last for weeks/months if stored in a cool dry container?
