    • Doggie Biscuit Deluxe

      Show your puppy dog how much you care with these mouthwatering homemade Doggie Biscuit Deluxe treats . . .

      You'll Need:

      2 cups whole wheat flour
      1 teaspoon bone meal
      1/4 cup cornmeal
      2 tablespoons corn oil or soy oil
      1/2 cup soy flour
      1/4 cup molasses
      1/2 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
      1 - 2 tsp Garlic Powder
      1 teaspoon iodized salt
      1 large egg mixed with 1/4 cup milk

      Mix all dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl, then Add oil, molasses, a dash of garlic and all but 1 tablespoon of the egg-milk mixture. Knead the soft dough a few minutes to make a firm dough, adding more milk if needed. Let dough rest 1/2 hour or more (refrigeration isn't necessary)

      Lightly flour a counter top or other hard surface and roll out to 1/2 inch in thickness. Brush with remaining egg-milk mixture and cut with doggie biscuit shaped cookie cutter.

      Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350F 30-35 minutes.

      To make harder biscuits, turn off oven after baking, open door slightly and leave them in the oven overnight to finish crisping.

      1. Thank you for posting the truth about Garlic in pet treats!! I am so tired of seeing blatant misinformation on the internet about how garlic is bad for pets. Onions are BAD for dogs, garlic is NOT.

        Here’s a guide on the garlic levels safe for dogs, based on a dog’s weight:

        Fresh Garlic (from The Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats by Dr. Pitcairn)

        10 to 15 pounds: .5 clove
        20 to 40 pounds: 1 clove
        45 to 70 pounds: 2 cloves
        75 to 90 pounds: 2.5 cloves
        100 pounds +: 3 cloves

        Bone Meal? Where do we get this at?
      1. AngryLioness's Avatar
        Bone meal is a mixture of finely and coarsely ground animal bones and if you buy prepackaged stuff, also can contain slaughter-house waste products. It's a fabulous fertilizer for plants in addition to a tasty flavor enhancer in homemade dog treats. You can actually get bone meal from your local meat market guy (or the meat department at walmart, or any major grocery store.) Just ask them to save the bone shavings for you. You can also grind chicken or turkey bones yourself if you want to make your own.

        Alternatively, you can buy this nutrient rich product in a bottle at health food stores, or online on Amazon. We actually purchase the Kal Bone Meal Powder and include it in our homemade (homeopathic) pet food recipes to supplement phosphorus and calcium in their diets.

        I made these yesterday and baked them for the time listed, but my son said that we should put gravy on them. I still had some leftover gravy from thanksgiving so we dipped them in gravy and then rebaked them until the gravy was dried. My doggies are in 7th Heaven! They LOVE these

        Thank you so much for sharing your fantastic recipes budget101! I'll be making packages of these for gifts for my friends pets.

        I want to send this recipt to my daughter, but at least one of the ingredients is blocked by an ad. Now what?

        You can click on the Share button on the recipe just under the title and it will let you email it to her or send her the page, or print it (ad free). Also, if the ad is "covering" anything that is due to a browser display issue and you should submit a report. Here's the link:

        Can you use the bone meal in the lawn and garden section that you buy for plants?

        I was wondering if we can omit some of the cornmeal. My friend had a dog that was allergic to corn products. I would love to send her any recipe so she is not spending too much money on store bought products and with the recent recalls. This will save some time and headache.

        My dogs would love these. I'm going to try the tip of basting with gravy on some to see how that works.

        Could you substitute Flax seed? Is it okay for dogs? I have those on hand already!
