Howdy everyone, and thanks for stopping by the website! Those of you that watch our videos and enjoy our food know that we always have our faithful friends and taste-testers around when we are cooking outdoors.
Today, I thought it would be nice to make them their own special treats. When you buy dog biscuits in the store, you can’t guarantee the quality of the ingredients. The taste testers love human food, but no human food can compare to these homemade dog biscuits that are delicious and (don’t tell the pups) healthy.
Best Dog Biscuits
These can be made indoors or outside. The ingredients for these biscuits are healthy, whole ingredients that will help the pup’s digestion while making them happy because they taste so darn good.
Start with the pumpkin, smooth low-sodium peanut butter, eggs, bone broth, cinnamon, and honey. The cinnamon and honey is added because The Beag prefers his biscuits a little sweet.
We’re using whole wheat flour for the dog biscuits. Once the dough is dry and dense, just roll it out about a half-inch thick. Cut them in any shape or size you want them to be. I like to make bow ties – the little footballs left over are perfect for the smaller dogs.
I like the cookies on the softer side so they will bake for about 30 minutes.
Let’s Talk Dental
Pups these days have it pretty good, they do. Vets take good care of their teeth! Some of our older pups may be missing a few teeth here and there.
If your furry family friend has all their teeth and might could use something to help scrape the tartar off, you’ll cook these for about 45 minutes. Don’t let the biscuits burn, however – the pups won’t like them that way.
If the pup’s teeth are doing alright, 30 minutes is the right amount of time to bake these. If the pup is missing their teeth or has discomfort chewing and would enjoy these biscuits a little softer, 25 minutes is about right.
When the biscuits are done, let them cool. Once cool, use as a substitute for whatever treats you’re already using. These sure will give the pups incentive to behave or learn a new trick.
As always, thank you for stopping by and sharing our food. Please give your puppies our love and let us know how they enjoyed the biscuits! Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel and click “like” on all of your favorites. We’ll see y’all down the doggy biscuit trail, folks.
