Dog Food Recipes & Other Tempting Treats

Whip up a tasty, nutritious batch of dog food or treats that will have your pooch salivating like one of Pavlov's dogs with our dog treat and dog food recipes! Or, satisfy your own sweet tooth with a batch of Dog Bone Sugar Cookies; just use the recipe below and a bone-shaped cookie cutter. Even your furry friends won't pass up a few crumbs of this yummy treat!

Dog Bone Sugar Cookies

Sift together 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon baking powder. Using an electric mixer, beat together 3/4 cup softened butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, and two large eggs in a separate bowl until fluffy. Mix in the flour, salt and baking powder, blending until smooth. Chill the dough for 30 - 60 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 375°F. On a lightly-floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to 1/8" thickness. Cut out a series of cookies with the bone-shaped cookie cutter. Roll the remaining dough scraps into a ball, and then repeat the previous steps. Put the cookies on shortening-greased cookie sheets, and then bake them for 8 - 10 minutes or until they're golden. Let the cookies cool on wire baking racks for 15 - 20 minutes, and then enjoy!

Helpful Tips for Healthy Pups

If you feed your pup home-cooked dog food, it's important to avoid certain harmful ingredients. Also, since homemade dog food isn't as nutritionally balanced as manufactured dog food, you should incorporate supplements like multi-vitamins and Omega 3 essential fatty acids into your dog's diet to make sure he receives all of the nutrients he needs to stay healthy. To learn more about nutritional supplements, visit our Canine Health page. For a list of off-limits foods, as well as for suggestions on safe, store-bought dog food and treats that your pup will enjoy, visit our Food Tips for Dog Owners section.
