Hi All. My Husky, Shadow, and the fireplug (Chloe) are snackie freaks. I am trying to find some recipes for homemade dog snacks that they will enjoy and that won't cost an arm and a leg. If I can avoid Pupperoni (sp?) it would be good. They love it, but it's costly. Any suggestions? I caught the video for salmon rollovers and I'll give them a shot (if I can find oat flour).

  1. Hi!
    You will find recipes and tips on the Not About Food board, where doggie lovers gather to discuss their pets and their daily feeding (and snackie) needs. My Ben loves Pupperoni, etc, but I try to give him crunchy snacks whenever possible since the snacks last longer (or at least take him longer to ate) and they're better for his teeth.

    1. i recently purchased the Bouchon Bakery Cookbook by Thomas Keller for my s-i-l. I was pleased to find there's a dog biscuit recipe for her two Jack Russells.

      1. Niece gave me a cookbook from Three Dog Bakery... 2 guys with rescue dogs who briefly had a show in TV. NOTHING iin recipes that you or I wouldn't eat. Main difference in ingredients... very little (or no) fat, salt or sugar.

          this is the link to homemade treats from the NAF board.

          1. Some older pet snack recipes add garlic powder or onion powder. Garlic and onions are not good to give to dogs or cats it negatively affects their blood chemistry.

            Google garlic and dogs or cats for more info.
