How to make home made dog treats for those who want to feed their dogs a more natural diet.
Along with our home made dog food we like to give our dogs treats every now and again. Our children use them when training the dogs and we stuff them into the dog Kongs when we go out to keep them busy.
They can also be served for one of the meals if you like, but we prefer to give them the rice mix.
This recipe is adapted from Down to Earth Blog which is well worth the visit for all nature of urban homesteading secrets!
Here’s how to make you own home made dog treats:
2 cups of plain flour with
2 cups of whole wheat flour and
1 cup of rolled oats.
Add one cup of rice milk powder
Add two tablespoons of beef or chicken stock powder
Add one teaspoon of yeast
When you add the water add it cup by cup until you get a kneadable dough. Knead it well and then roll out on a floured surface until about 1 cm thick.
Cut out your shapes depending on the size of your dog’s mouth. Choose round cutters rather than ones that have sharp edges as when baked hard these edges can hurt your pooches mouth.
Bake them at 180 deg Celsius for about 20 minutes then turn down the oven to it’s lowest until they are dry.
When cooled store in an airtight container.
