Weekly Drool Recipe: Lemon-Lavender Dog Biscuits

It’s spring and that means the occasional thunderstorm.  A good spring rain can refresh the earth and feed your newly planted veggies and flowers.  But, Best Bully Sticks knows that sometimes our pups don’t like the loud booming of thunder. An anxious dog tugs at our heart stings and as proud pooch parents, we want to help calm our dog’s nerves.

That’s why this week we’re bringing you a special treat from our friends at Doggy Dessert Chef! These Lemon-Lavender Dog Biscuits are made with culinary lavender found easily on the Internet or your local spice shop.  Lavender has a calming effect by way of a dog’s olfactory system (nose) and has been proven to be a natural way to calm a dog through thunderstorms and separation anxiety.


1 Lemon (juiced and zested)

1 tablespoon Culinary Lavender

2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 cup Milk

Weekly Drool Recipe: Boo-sotto, Risotto Dinner For Your Pooch & You

updated October 2014 

Best Bully Sticks brings something special to the table this week: Boo-sotto, a risotto dinner for your pooch.  Boo-sotto is a recipe from Rachael Ray, who created this tasty dish for her aging dog, Boo.

As Boo got older, she needed a careful balance of meat and carbs; lean protein and a large amount of carbs.”

Rachael and her mom would make this for Boo and even enjoy some themselves! Your pup doesn’t have to be the refined type to enjoy this fancy dinner and neither do you. This meal would be great for your dog’s birthday, adoption anniversary or a holiday meal. And as always, check with your vet about which foods are appropriate for you to share with your pet.

** Please note: the original version from Rachel Ray’s site contains ingredients that may be harmful to dogs; it should NOT be followed. We have modified the ingredients to not include garlic and onion, toxic to dogs.
