These turmeric and flax dog biscuits, created by Tod and Diane from White on Rice, are a delicious and healthy treat for your pup.  Turmeric is thought to have pain relieving, cleansing, and anti-inflammatory properties. Along with the healing qualities of turmeric, flax is fantastic for your pup’s skin, coat, and immune system.

The pain relieving qualities of turmeric and the immune system boosting properties of flax make these dog biscuits a fantastic choice for a senior dog or a pup with a painful ailment.

  • 3/4 cup (180ml) hot Water

Drool Dog Recipe: Peanut Butter Bones from In the Dog Kitchen

Bartleby hound1We recently shared with you an easy dog treat recipe from In the Dog Kitchen by Julie Van Rosendaal.

Of course, we wanted to try out another for our doggie friends and decided on Peanut Butter Bones. We searched high and low for our dog bone cookie cutters, but you know how it goes, they weren’t to be found when we needed them. 

So we bring you Peanut Butter Pineapples instead!

Little tip: If your dog is guilty of enjoying his own feces from time to time, add some chunks of canned pineapple to his food, and that should prevent it!

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats

1/2 cup chopped peanuts (optional)- We opted to leave these out for a smoother texture

1 cup peanut butter (we used natural peanut butter- just peanuts and salt)

1 cup water or milk

2 Tbsp honey

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, and peanuts (if using). Add the peanut butter, water, and honey and stir until you have a stiff dough.

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until well blended, then roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into bones, shapes, or strips and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets. 

Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden. Let the cookies cool on the sheets, or turn off the oven and leave the cookies inside to harden as they cool. Store in a tightly sealed container.

Here’s what Bartleby the Hound, rescued from the Richmond SPCA, thought of them!

Mint Buckwheat Dog Biscuits by Lola the Pitty

buckwheat-dog-treats-18-blog

 

We’re going to say it– sometimes dogs’ breath is just rank! Odor-free natural bully sticks can help in that department, but between chew time and teeth brushing, what else can help?

Parsley and mint are two ingredients that can help freshen breath, which is exactly what is in this week’s Dog Treat by Lola the Pitty

Mint Buckwheat Dog Biscuits.

We were intrigued by the use of buckwheat flour in this recipe, and mint and parsley– well, that’s something doggie breath can always use!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups buckwheat flour (She used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 4 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon pure honey
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • water (approx. 1-3 tsp)

For instructions on how to make these delicious treats, see Mint Buckwheat Dog Biscuits by Lola the Pitty.

Many thanks to Sarah and Lola for sharing this great recipe! We hope our canine fans enjoy.

In the Dog Kitchen Cookbook: Tuna Tater Tots & other Dog Treat Recipes!

dog treat baking smallAs you all know, we are big fans of homemade dog treats here at Best Bully Sticks. In addition to supplementing your dog’s diet with natural treats and chews, adding homemade dog treats to the mix is a great way to keep your hound happy and healthy!

In the Dog KitchenWhen we received a copy of In the Dog Kitchen: Great Snack Recipes for your Dog by Julie Van Rosendaal, we were super excited! We enjoyed flipping through the pages to see the photographs and descriptions of dog treats.

So far we have tried one treat,

Tuna Tater Tots.

Its description: Made purely of tuna and potatoes, these flavorful bites are perfect for small dogs.

Our Social Media Manager was visiting with miniature Schnauzer Cloud, and this treat sounded like the perfect fit!

 Ingredients:

  • 1 (6 oz) can tuna or salmon (packed in water or oil), undrained
  • 1 cup instant mashed potato flakes

We love that this easy recipe only has 2 ingredients, ones that you may already have in your pantry.

 Instructions:

  • Tuna TaterPreheat the oven to 350F.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the tuna (with the liquid from the can) and potato flakes until well blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and let the mixture sit for a few minutes- this will allow the potato flakes to absorb some of the moisture from the tuna- then pulse again until well blended. The mixture should resemble fresh bread crumbs but hold together when squeezed. If the mixture is too dry to hold together, add a splash of water or stock.
  • Shape into marble-size balls or small cylinders and place on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until firm. Cool on the baking sheets, and store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge, or freeze.
