Here are a few neat recipes for some Homemade Treats
Peanut Butter Cookies
2 cups of flour (white or wheat)
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon of honey
½ tablespoon of fish oil
1 ½ cups of water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix the flour and oats together in a large mixing bowl. Pour in one cup of water and blend until smooth.
Add in the peanut butter, honey, and fish oil and mix until all the ingredients are well blended.
Slowly add the water until the mixture has a thick and doughy consistency.
Lightly flour a cooking surface. Roll the dough onto the cooking surface to create a ¼ inch thick sheet.
Use a cookie cutter to create shapes. Place the cookies onto a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before feeding.
Tip:If the dough is too sticky to roll, slowly pad more flour onto the dough ball.
2-4 chicken breasts
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
Remove any excess fat from the chicken. Turn the chicken breast on it’s side and use a pairing knife to slice the chicken breast into 1/8 inch thick strips.
Set the strips on a baking sheet. Bake for 2 hours.
Check the chicken before removing from the oven. It should be dry and hard, not soft or chewy. Allow the chicken to cool completely before serving.
Store the jerky in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Tip: You can substitute sweet potatoes for the chicken in this recipe. Sweet potatoes make a healthy alternative.
Frozen Yogurt Pops
6 ounce container of plain, non-fat yogurt
1 cup of no-sugar added fruit juice
½ cup of carrots, minced
Add the yogurt, fruit juice and carrots into a medium-sized bowl. Stir until the ingredients are smooth and well-blended.
Drop the mixture into the ice cube trays by spoonful.
Freeze until the ingredients are solid.
Tip: Use hard plastic trays instead of the softer rubber ones to make the treats. The treats are easier to remove from a hard tray.
Kong Stuffing Recipes!
As you all know we love to promote the use of Kongs to keep both puppies and adult dogs busy and productive.
These are hard rubber chew toys that can be easily stuffed with treats to keep your dog entertained. It is important to choose the right type of Kong for your dog, in both size and durability. If your dog is an aggressive chewer, then the Kong Extreme might be better suited for your dog's needs. If you have a small dog then it would be best to buy a small Kong, just like big dogs should have Large Kongs.
