    Do you make your own doggy treats and food?

    Please share them with the class here, so people like me can learn.


    Thanks all

    Tuna triangles
    1 can tuna in natural juice
    4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    250g cornflour
    250g rolled oats
    50g flour

    Drain tuna (keep juice), then puree tuna with oil and egg in blender. Mix the puree with the other stuff to make a dough (I had to add quite a bit of water to get a dough that is why I would keep the tuna juice and use that instead of water).
    Preheat oven to 180°C.
    Roll out dough to ~1 cm thick and cut into triangles (or whatever form you want...). Place on baking sheet and bake for 25 min. Store in a cookie tin and they last for about 2 weeks.


    Birthday Fish Tart (Ziggy loved it )
    300g pearl barley (I have no idea where to get that in Melbourne thats why I simply used rolled oats)
    200g cooked fillet of fish
    1 egg
    2 tablespoons corn flour
    2 tablespoons finely chopped mixed herbs

    (with this amount of ingredients you need 6 tart molds, 12 cm in diameter)

    If you have pearl barley soak it for 35 min in water then drain in a sieve (I didn't do that with the rolled oats).
    Preheat oven to 180°C.
    Break up the fish fillet into small pieces with a fork and mix with the other stuff (add water when using rolled oats). Put the dough in the tart molds and bake for 40 min. Turn off the heat and let the tarts cool in the oven. Store in a cookie tin and they will keep for about 3 days.

    I have two more to add...

    Banana Cookies (Ziggys favourite cookies so far)
    2 carrots
    1 banana
    200g all-purpose flour
    100g fine rolled oats
    50ml sunflower oil
    water as required

    Grate the carrots finely and mash banana with a fork. Mix everything together to make a fine dough (was very sticky...).
    Preheat oven to 180°C.
    Roll out the dough to about 1 cm thick and cut into squares. Place on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Turn off the heat and let them cool overnight in the oven. Store in paper bag and they will keep for about 3 weeks.


    The next ones I am going to make later today. So no idea if they will be a success or not (they sound like they will be )
    Reward Cookies
    100g wholewheat flour
    100g coarse rolled oats
    2 tablespoons oat bran
    2 eggs
    75g grated Parmesan cheese
    75g finely diced ham
    100ml water

    Mix everything to make smooth dough. Cover and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
    Preheat oven to 180°C.
    Roll out to about 1 cm thick and cut into rectangles. Place these on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Turn off heat and let cookies harden in the oven for another 2 hours. Store in paper bag and they will keep for about 4 weeks.

    I found this on the Choice website, it's an every day food mix for an adult dog:

    550 g boiled potato
    350 g lean meat (lightly stewed)
    80 g cooked human-grade sheep or beef liver*
    20 g corn oil
    20 g bone meal**
    5 g table salt

    Mix all the ingredients together and feed it to your pet once a day.
    Amount to feed each day according to body weight:

    Dog weight- Food
    5 kg- 270 g
    10 kg- 460 g
    15 kg- 620 g
    20 kg- 770 g
    25 kg- 900 g
    30 kg- 1000 g

    * A vitamin supplement can be used instead of the liver
    **Bone meal can be found in certain healthfood stores and is an excellent source of calcium.

    Does anyone have a recipe for puppies?

    Healthy dog biscuits

    3/4 cup hot meat juices

    1/3 cup margarine

    1/2 cup powdered milk

    1 beaten egg

    3 cups wholemeal plain flour


    Pour meat juices over margarine.

    Stir in powdered milk and egg.

    Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.

    Knead mixture for 3 or 4 minutes adding more flour if necessary to make a stiff dough.

    Pat or roll to 1/2" thickness and cut into biscuits.

    Place on gladbake on a biscuit tray and bake for 50 minutes or so at 160.

    Allow to cool and dry until hard.


    I usually use unsalted butter instead of margarine and if I don't have enough meat juices I use a low salt stock powder I buy from the health food shop. I also add chopped parsley. This the sort of recipe you can play with a bit, adding whatever takes your fancy.

    If you don't have cookie cutter things you can bend an egg ring into a sort of bone shape or simply cut the dough with a knife. My dogs don't care what they look like. They just like the taste.

    To make the biscuits really hard leave on the tray in the oven while it cools.

    DOG BIRTHDAY CAKE

    4 cups Wholemeal Flour
    500gm minced meat
    2 eggs
    250gms Chopped Liver
    Milk or water.

    Leaving aside half the liver, mix all ingredients together to the consistency of scone dough.

    Put in a large cake tin. Spread remainder of chopped liver on top.

    Bake in a moderate oven until firm.

    Vary the above with minced chicken or turkey. For a special treat serve chopped chicken livers on top.

    Then invite your dog's friend's around for a party.

    From The Pug Club of Victoria Cook Book 1995

    I made this cake with a few variations for Kenna Sheltie's first birthday. I ran out of flour after 3 cups and had to make it up with a cup of cornflour. I used kangaroo mince and a bit of bacon for the meat and decorated the top with chopped bacon rinds.

    Kenna sat on a chair at the table while the kids sang "Happy Birthday" to her. She kept craning her neck forward and taking little tastes of her cake during the singing. Kenna is a fussy eater but she really loved the taste of this cake.

    Hey Hippo you have the same book as me!! I just bought it the other day through lifetime distributors- you get a storage tin and cookie cutters with it.

    I have only made the banana cookies so far... didn't have banana though so i used apple sauce.
