Weekly Drool Recipe: Puppermints for St Patty’s via My Dog’s Breakfast

 

St Patty’s is coming soon, and we thought what better way to celebrate than with a holiday-themed recipe for pups? The green color from this recipe is not from artificial dyes but rather from good-for-you kale, mint and parsley. Do we smell fresher breath already? 

We love that this recipe from My Dog’s Breakfast has both a wheat and gluten-free recipe for dogs who have sensitive stomachs or dietary restrictions. Check out the full recipe below.

 Ingredients: Gluten free Puppermints

2 1/2 cups All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1 cup parsley
1 cup kale
1/2 cup mint
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup canola oil
1 TBS honey
1TSP salt

 

Ingredients: Wheat Puppermints
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup parsley
1/2 cup kale
1/2 cup mint
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup canola oil
1 TBS honey
1 tsp salt

Directions

Whiz your parsley, mint, kale and water in your blender or whatever you have that will do the trick. Add to large mixing bowl. Add the canola oil, honey, salt and stir. Then slowly add the dry ingredients and mix together, then knead a little bit until dough ball forms. Some flour mixtures make this a bit more crumbly, just add small amounts of water until you’re happy with the texture. This should be a moist dough so you will need to sprinkle a good amount of gf flour to roll out. Roll out dough to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thickness. I used a (proper measuring) teaspoon to make them round. After you make the cut out, you can just smoosh them into the teaspoon if you want make them rounder on the top (like you see in the picture).

Bake at 250 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I like to cook them at a low temp because I find that natural colours stay stronger this way.

Let us know if you make these lucky-green dog treats!

The 4 W’s When Planning your Dog’s Bath

 SPRING is around the corner, and for many dog owners, that means rain, mud and extra time spent wiping Fido’s paws at the front or back doors! If your dog really enjoys getting dirty (an annoying and lovable quality at the same time), bath time can be a hassle.

Even if rain is not in the forecast anytime soon in your area, dogs do sweat (and smell), something we dog owners become more aware of as summer draws closer.

 We at BestBullySticks have compiled 4 things to consider planning to clean Fido– before the next Puddle fest or heatwave!

Why

If it’s not sweaty season, and he’s not smellier than his usual, a bath once a month should be plenty. If bathing this regularly, use a mild shampoo, perhaps one with oatmeal. Medicated shampoos should only be used every other time. If a bath is called for due to rolling in feces or an encounter with a skunk, a specially formulated shampoo and/or several baths will be necessary to eliminate the smell.

Who

Will you be the one to tackle Fido in the bathtub for this necessary task? If so, be sure to have a helper on hand– it will be faster and less stressful for your dog (and you!).

 Where

This time of year, it is probably still too cold to submit Fido to a bath outside. If possible, give him an inside bath until temperatures warm up.

When

Before breakfast or dinner is a great time to bathe your dog because mealtime will serve as a reward and calm him down if baths are unpleasant and distressing for him.

If you are a new dog owner or new to giving your dog a bath, we hope these tips prove helpful when planning your dog’s bath!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Coconut Butter via Kirby the Dorkie

Our good friend Kirby the Dorkie has come up with a great way to add exotic flavor to your dog’s meal that also packs a wallop of health benefits! Today Best Bully Sticks shares Kirby’s recipe for Coconut Butter! Check out the full recipe below.

Wondering what the difference is between coconut oil and coconut butter? Coconut oil is the oil extracted from the coconut where coconut butter is made from raw dried shredded coconut. When you puree the shredded coconut the coconut oil and coconut meat mix together and turn into a butter spread.

To make your own use unsweetened, dried coconut, either shredded or flakes, which turn into a somewhat smooth butter. Do not use desiccated, sweetened, reduced fat or fresh coconut. This does require a powerful food processor or blender to make.

So what can you do with coconut butter? Spoon coconut butter straight from the jar and mix in the meal time kibble, add it to baked treats, melt and pour over sweet potatoes or baked carrots, freeze for pupsicles, the list is endless. Coconut butter isn’t just for dogs either!  Humans can use it as a coffee creamer, a spread for toast, in curry dishes, and smoothies to name a few.

Try making different flavored coconut butters: mix 1 tablespoon carob powder with 1/4 cup coconut butter, 1 tablespoon peppermint oil with 1/4 cup coconut butter, or 1 tablespoon cinnamon with 1/4 cup coconut butter.

Prep Time: 15 – 20 minutes    Cook Time: None    Yields:  1 cup

Ingredients

2 cups unsweetened coconut, shredded or flakes read more…

Rescue Spotlight: Providing for Paws

Dogs belong with families. And families should have dogs. If you believe these two things like Best Bully Sticks does, then you love hearing about organizations like Providing for Paws. Starting as an outlet for low-income families to help pay for vet bills and necessities for dogs, this Metro Detroit-based assistance organization is also rescues and rehomes animals in need. Read more about this amazing organization below.

When & Why did you start?

Providing for Paws was started in March of 2011, with the intention of helping with food assistance, altering and vaccinating for low-income families.  That has since turned into rescuing animals as well as providing assistance to families in need.  I got involved with rescue after my son had asked me if we could take in a dog that he felt one of his friends was neglecting and abusing. He stated the dog was a puppy that was living in a crate in her own waste, not getting food or water and the owner was taking her out and getting her drunk during parties he was having. Our family had just suffered a loss of our Lab of 13 years, and I was not ready for another animal.  I told my son that I would help him get the puppy to a shelter, but could not handle the loss of another pet.  About a week later my son could not take the neglect any longer and paid the kid $200.00 in order to get the dog out of the situation she was in. 

In he came with a nasty crate filled with waste and a 5 month old Pit Bull puppy.  I was ignorant of the breed at that time, despite watching shows like The Dog Whisper and believed the hype from the media.  Although I did not fear this absolutely adorable puppy, I told my son we could not keep her because of our Grandchildren coming and going.  I feared she may become vicious with them when she got older. I also was aware that the shelters killed Pit Bull type breeds all the time and knew if I took her to a shelter, she would have been put down.  She seemed so sweet and loving the second she came into my home.  Jumping on my lap and kissing my face within minutes, I didn’t have the heart to take her to the shelter where I knew her chances of making it out alive was slim.  I told my son he had two weeks to find her a new home! 

The following day I took the puppy to the vet to see why she had a lot of hair missing around her ears, concerned she may have an ear infection.  Turned out she had mange from her stressful living conditions.  While at the vet, I told the vet my concerns as to this pup’s breed.  The vet told me, that if I properly socialized her as we did our lab, she would be no different acting then our lab was—that the breed gets into the wrong hands and to do my homework and research the breed, before I was so quick to give her up.  When I got back home from the vets, I did my research and found out a ton of information about the breed.  It broke my heart to see how mistreated the breed was and felt I had to do something to help.  I began finding rescue groups and causes that supported the breed, then networking the animals on Facebook—getting involved in trying to stop the high kill rate of our own Animal Control in Detroit.  read more…
