Weekly Drool Recipe: Turkey Bacon and Cheese Dog Treats

There are few tastier combinations we can think of than bacon and cheese, so when we came across The Blissful Bakker’s recipe for Turkey Bacon and Cheese Dog Treats, we knew we had to share it with you! In addition to their delicious flavor, turkey bacon and cheese each contain an assortment of beneficial nutrients as well. Cheese, which is high in calcium, vitamins A, B12, quality proteins and amino acids, is great for maintaining strong bones and healthy teeth. Turkey bacon, a lower fat version of pork bacon, is a great source of lean protein and carbs for energy, muscle and tissue health. With this win-win in taste and nutrition, it’s no wonder both cheese and bacon are universally loved by dog and owner alike! Here’s how Rachel at The Blissful Bakker combines the two into a delicious treat your pup is sure to love:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (plus more if needed)
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cooked turkey bacon, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk   

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
  • Stir in milk, chopped bacon and cheddar cheese until a soft dough forms (you may have to add a little more flour if the dough seems really sticky).
  • Roll out the dough with your hands to make half inch balls (you may want to alter this based on your dog’s size)
  • Place balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10 minutes or until slightly crunchy.
  • Cool and store in an airtight container for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to one month.

 Note: If your pup has any dietary issues, be sure to consult with your vet before feeding these treats to your furry friend. 

Thanks so much to Rachel (and her pup, Darby!) at The Blissful Bakker for sharing this recipe with us!

BBS Training Tip #4: Dog Training Methods Part 2

Last week BestBullySticks tipped off our discussion on dog training with the first installment of our Training Methods blog series. In today’s followup post to Training Methods Part 1, we’re delving into specific training methods.

Origins of Modern Dog Training

Modern dog training developed dramatically during the 20th century. Most notably, advances in psychology furthered dog training and led to the creation of new training methods. BestBullySticks recently talked about this fascinating evolution in our post on The History of Dog Training.

In recent years, older training methods have been labeled overly aggressive or unnecessarily physical. In some instances this may be the case— BestBullySticks encourages all dog owners to use their discretion in the matter. Just be sure to avoid any training methods that are outright abusive. There are many factors to consider when training your dog — refer to our post on How Dogs Learn to gain some more insight into what your pup has on his mind!

Corrective Training

A training system that would fall into this category is the Koehler Method. The cornerstone of the Koehler Method is to let dogs make their own mistakes. In doing so, it gives the owner the opportunity to provide consequences for both desirable and undesirable behaviors. The punishments of the Koehler Method are generally more physical, sometimes advocating “alpha rolling,” where a dog is pinned on his back to assert dominance.

It should be noted, this “alpha rolling” technique, while still used today —and even by big name trainers— the “natural” action it is supposed to mimic is an action where submission is actually given, not forced.

Dominance-based training methods like the Koehler Method rely on the theory that dogs are in fact wolves and there are hierarchies in their pack with an alpha-figure at the top. However, the Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) has argued against this idea of aggressive-submissive positions. Additionally, attempting to physically exert dominance could cause your pet to lash out. read more…
