making dog treatsI was slicing up the turkey for Thanksgiving and noticed that there was quite a bit of turkey left on the bones. It was just on parts I would not use. With all that extra, I made turkey treats for my dogs and they loved them.


  • 1 lb. of cooked turkey blended ( NO turkey skin, bones, or fat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1 cup water or broth*

*Note: If using broth remember that onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder) are harmful to dogs so it's suggested not to use it!


In a blender or food processor, combine turkey meat and beaten eggs until well blended and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour and rolled oats and add blended turkey. Add water or broth to flour, stir till dough is sticky.

Divide dough into 2 balls. Knead each ball on a well floured surface (about 2 minutes), adding flour until the dough is no longer sticky.

With a rolling pin, roll out dough to between 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter and place on lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Time should adjusted if size is different than in this recipe.

Cool on rack and store, at room temperature, in a container with loose fitting lid.

They should keep for 3 weeks, however you can freeze for longer use.

Source: Recipe is from Mac Pherson's K-9 Cookbook. I substituted turkey in the place of ground beef.

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup of brewers yeast
  • 1 tsp. of salt
  • 1 Tbsp. plus 1 1/2 tsp. of canola oil
  • Optional: 1 clove of garlic chopped or 1 tsp. of garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup of chicken stock, plus 3 Tbsp. for basting


Heat oven to 400 degrees F, line a sheet with parchment paper. Mix flour, wheat germ, brewers yeast, and salt together in medium bowl. Combine oil and garlic, add 1/2 cup of chicken stock. Mix until well combined. Knead for 2 minutes by hand on floured surface, dough will be sticky. Roll dough out about 3/8 inch thick. Cut out bone shapes, put on cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes, rotate baking sheet, baste with remaining chicken stock. Bake 10 minutes longer. Turn off oven; let pan sit in oven for 1 and 1/2 hour longer.

Editor's Note: Most veterinarians recommend avoiding garlic and onions for dogs but some suggest it for natural flea prevention. Please discuss this with your own vet.

Having adopted my third "recycled" dog who is being trained, I was going through a lot more doggie treats than before. I decided to take some bread that was going stale anyway and try an experiment.

I piled up a few slices then cut them into quarters. I laid them out on a cookie sheet, lightly brushed them with healthy olive oil, and sprinkled them with garlic powder. I put them in a low oven for a bit, until they were hard and crunchy, like Melba toast. All healthy ingredients and they basically cost me nothing, I used the too stale for me bread and the dogs love them. May try flax seed next time!

Editor's Note: Most veterinarians recommend against giving your dog garlic, but there some do advocate for it. Please talk to your own vet prior to feeding dogs garlic.

I've collected these pet treat recipes over a period of the past 20 years, have tried them all, and cats and dogs have liked them all. Of course, we've been owned by a few that would eat just about anything, so that may not be the best judge of them being wholesome.

  • 3 cups oat flour
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • water, enough to moisten


Mix ingredients together well. Form into a ball, roll out to 1/4 inch thickness with a rolling pin. Cut into desired shapes, place on cookie sheets and bake in 325 oven for 30 minutes, or until browned. Turn off oven, leaving biscuits in the oven until cooled. These biscuits may be frozen, but keep well for a couple of weeks if they are very dry and crisp.

Many of us have pets. Here is a way to make and preserve yummy treats for them and have them handy when you need them for that extra special trick they do. Buy a cheap roasting chicken and cook it in the crock pot. It cooks off the bone and falls apart.

Here is a great idea for dog treats that are easy to make, high in fiber, all natural, and your dog will love them! I started making these when my Lab got a case of chronic diarrhea and they helped a lot.

The great thing about these dog treats is that you can make them in your microwave. It's really nice in summer so you don't heat up kitchen.

I am looking for some quick and easy homemade dog treat recipes. I'm not very good at working the computer to find these things so please email me any recipes.

I have one recipe: 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup peanut butter and 3/4 cup milk. Mix until moistened then knead for 5 minutes, roll into balls and use a fork to criss-cross cookies just like you would for regular cookies. Bake 350 for 20 minutes and cook completely.

My dogs LOVE them but I would like more recipes. I hope your dogs like these, please send me some recipes. Thank you.

I wanted to make dog treats for my four beautiful chows, but this site said I couldn't feed them certain things. How can I get around it?
