Homemade treats

Pampered pets deserve the best. Store bought cookies are fine for everyday snacks; but for holidays and other occasions or just whenever you feel like doing something extra special for your pet, nothing beats home-made treats. They'll love every bite. These delicious snacks are a big hit at our house. We hope your dog likes them too! Our dogs love baking days. I have three eager tasters lined up waiting to lick a spoon or to sample a fresh warm offering from the oven.

NOTE: These recipes contain no additives or preservatives and so they will not keep as long as commercially prepared treats. Most do keep well for at least 10-14 days in a container or cookie jar. Biscuits made with milk and cheese should be kept refrigerated or frozen. If you choose to make larger batches, consider freezing a portion and just thaw a few at a time.

To make easier clean-ups, I like to line my cookie sheets with foil and/or lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray. If you want to add even more taste to your Pet treats, use garlic flavoured cooking spray. Most of these are recipe variations developed in our own kitchen. Credit is given where recipes are from other sources.
