I would like to make the soft pumpkin dog biscuits but there are no instructions for how to make them!
When I got my chihuahua almost 9 years ago I’d always buy her these lil overpriced doggie biscuits dipped in carob and covered in sprinkles. She loved them! They were 5 for $5 and when I realized just how easy they are to make I stopped buying them.
These photos are adorable and it’s great to see dogs lucky enough to get home-baked treats. For anyone else making these (or the flax biscuits) — the sugar is not only unnecessary flavor-wise for dogs, it’s really not nutritionally wise. Dogs do not need carbs — dog food companies add sugar to their food for the same reason human food is sugared-up — it makes the eater keep eating. Unlike humans, however, dogs will eat a sugar-free cookie as happily as the sweetened variety! One of the benefits of home-made treats, after all, is avoiding all the fillers that commercial brands use (my personal favorite — stinky treats like “pizza-flavored” that then require you to buy breath-freshening treats as well…). You also might consider replacing the wheat with a gluten-free flour, as many dogs react poorly to the what (itchy skin, digestive issues). You can make your own oat flour by grinding up oats in a processor if you don’t want to buy rice or bean flour. I make pb dog treats with gluten-free flours and dogs love them!

Read on for instructions on how to make three kinds of dog treats: classic bone cookies, meaty biscuits and doggy birthday cake.This is Izzy. She’s my little sweetheart. I put off getting a dog for so long, and now I can’t imagine life without her. None of us can. My whole family is smitten with her. Enough about Izzy, clearly this post is just a poor attempt to post pictures of her. 🙂 However I do like to make her healthy, wholesome treats. These dog biscuits were made just from baby food and they were so easy. I figured if baby food was good enough for a baby, it was good enough for my Iz. I made some dog treats and gave them away to my friends. I few stated that the treats molded what did I do wrong?
Chef's Answer ~ I doubt you did anything wrong with the dog treat recipe. Since homemade dog treats are made without preservatives, they must be refrigerated or frozen. Only the most dried out, hard and crunchy dog biscuits can be left out at room temperature. Even then, they have a shorter shelf life than commercially made dog treats.
As a future suggestion, you can do what I do when I give friends and family homemade dog treats. I write on a zip-lock bag (with a black felt tip pen) the name and type of treat, the date, plus how long it should be kept in the fridge and/or freezer. A lot of people are use to store bought treats that last in a cardboard box for months. But, that's not what you are giving them, so they need to be reminded of the freshness of the homemade dog treat.
If you'd like to make your treats last longer in the future, you could always use a natural preservative. You can find a good one at , they also have a ton of cute things to bake and decorate dog treats with.
I hope this helps, and I'm sorry your treats went bad too quickly!
