1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Do anyone make their own treats? Do you have recipes you would like to share? I thought it would be fun to do something like this with my daughter. Thanks!

I make chicken jerky in the dehydrator.

I have also made other treats and will look up the recipes.

There is a topic on this some where if you do a search.

Here is a couple that my pups like.

I have also mix yogurit and pumpkin and make pup frozen treats.

Liver Treats:

1 lb raw sliced beef liver (in the meat freezer section at Safeway, or better, go to your local health food grocery)
3 cups water
1 cup self rising cornmeal mix or rice flour
1/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tBsp brown sugar (I don't use this...)
2 tBsp canola oil
1 beaten egg

Preheat oven to 350 deg F

Boil liver in 3 cups of water until no longer pink

Remove liver and set aside the liver water.

Puree the liver and 1/4 of the liver water.

In a large bowl combine the rest of the stuff in the list with the
liver slurry plus 1/4 more of the liver water.

Roll out the dough 1/2" thick for large treats, 1/4" for small treats.
Cut into shapes and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10 min.

Flip and bake for 10 more min.

Cool for 2 1/2 hrs to make extra crunchy.

Refrigerate in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks (they get moldy otherwise). Freeze for longer (bet they are really crunchy frozen!).

Makes 3-5 dozen

Recipe from Travis and Harley "Dogzilla"!

Rigby LOVES these!! I got the cookie cutters at a kitchen store...small and medium dog bone shapes and small people shapes too!

Flax seeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids, which is part of the foundation for a healthy heart.
That's why we've developed these cheesy flax squares, with a whole cup of ground flax, to help you get the needed nutrition into your dog's diet.
Flax seeds do more than contribute to a healthy heart. Flax is full of fiber, so if your dog needs to drop a pound or two, you can add foods with fiber to help him feel full with less calories. They also aid the health and maintenance of your dogs skin and coat.
Cheesy Flax Squares
are Heart Healthy Dog Treats
• 1 cup ground flax (see note)
• 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
• 1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
• 1/2 cup water
1. Preheat oven to 400° F
2. Whisk the flax, cheese, and garlic together in a medium bowl.
3. Stir the water into the flax mixture.
4. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly spray the parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray.
5. Pile the mixture into the middle of the prepared baking sheet.
6. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and roll out (see note below). It should be no more than 1/2" thick, 1/4" is best.
7. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the center is no longer soft or spongy.
Storing - This heart healthy, like other recipes for dog treats will stay fresh in your refrigerator for about 2 weeks. Keep them in the freezer for 6 months.
Yield - Using a pizza cutter, you will get about 24 2 inch squares with a few irregular squares of various sizes to nibble.
Tips & Techniques
• Flax Seeds - Whether it's called ground flax, milled flax seed, or flax meal, they will all work for this dog treat recipe. For the freshest taste you can grind your own flax seeds at home with a flax seed grinder. Or, a multi-purpose kitchen tool you could use is a spice grinder. Either way, it's better not to use whole seeds, because your dog's body will not be able to break them down and she will not get the needed nutritional value. Milled flax seed, whether fresh or pre-ground, needs to be stored in the refrigerator (or freezer), in an air tight container for no more than four months to keep it from going rancid.
• Roll Out Dough - To roll out the flax dough on the baking sheet you can use a rolling pin. But I found that the flat edge of a ruler worked great to get a consistent thickness. Don't let the dog treat dough get too thin around the edges or it will burn. Once rolled out, lightly push any thin edges in to avoid it from burning.
• Flax Seed Oil - Your dog can benefit from adding flax seed oil to his regular daily food. Lighlty sprinkle on before serving. Or, you can add it to other recipes for dog treats. Just replace up to 1 tbsp of canola oil, or other oil, with flax seed oil.
• Replace Eggs - Another way of adding flax to your dogs diet is to replace the eggs in your dog treat recipes.
• Golden or Brown - OK, one more thing about flax seeds. Should you use the golden (yellow) or the brown variety of flax seeds? It's completely up to you! Smile The golden seeds have a higher oil content, but otherwise they are similar in nutritional value. It may depend on what you already have on hand or what you can find in your local market.
With all of the health benefits that flax seeds can lend to your recipes for dog treats, you may even want to consider adding it to your own baked goods so you and your dog can enjoy a long and healthy life together.
