This doesn't mean that they don't get treats. Treats are big around here. Even the word "treat" is very popular....
When I have time, I like to make the treats. That way, I know exactly what goes into the batch, and I can cater the batch to their likes and dislikes. Shocking though it may be, one of my pups isn't fond of peanut butter. The other pup, finicky about fish. You get the idea.
1. My Source for Homemade Dog Treat Recipes
For the past few months, when I've looked for dog biscuit recipes, or other forms of treats, I've gone to Bullwrinkle.Com and combed through their big list of free recipes. I do alter things a bit. For example:
Fido's Favorite Treats (With My Alterations and Comments)
1 cup rolled oats
(I use Bob's Red Mill Organic Scottish Oatmeal, which I understand may be different from the rolled oats. Why? Because this is the oatmeal I keep in the pantry.)
1/3 cup margarine or butter
(Never, ever, ever do I use margarine. Never buy this bad stuff. I use unsalted butter. It's what's in the fridge.)
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cup cornmeal
(I use yellow or white, whatever I have on hand.)
1 tablespoon sugar
(I tried Stevia. Didn't work well. I tried honey. Did okay.)
