Default Home-made a treat!

I was really upset when the recipe of our favorite training/play treat (a roll you could cut into small pieces) was changed. The company that made the treat/food was bought by another company and they immediately changed the recipe. It looks disgusting now, the texture and smell are terrible and the dogs don't love it. It also changes color after a few days in the fridge and the develops a dust on it that looks like mold, but I have no idea what it is. Ugh!!
So I started using some hot dog cut into teeny-tiny pieces, but Theo got a mild tummy ache the next day. Enter my dental hygenist, a poodle loving woman with two standards, who tells me her entertaining poodle agility stories while I'm in the chair. Now I look forward to going to the dentist, but I digress. So I told her my sorrows about the treats and she gave me this recipe:

1 pound ground turkey,
1 cup oats
2 eggs
I added 1/2 cup grated parm for extra flavor(saw this on line) and baked at 350 for 30 minutes.

So far the doggies love it. I'm putting some in the fridge and some in the freezer. I hope they still like it after it's been in the freezer and thawed. My poodles can be picky.
I am so happy that I can give them something that they like for training, and that I know what's in the treat and it feels good making it for them. What have you cooked for your pups?

I make a recipe which some wonderful person posted about 6 months ago. It's 3 carrots grated,
1/2 cup of oats, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 2 eggs. Bake at 330 for about 25 minuted. Make it weekly. My girl loves it. I can.t find the original post to thank whoever shared it but I thank her every day.

I boil chicken gizzards for 20 minutes, cut them in tiny pieces with kitchen shears, and store them in the fridge. My dogs love them.

I do liver cake and liver biscotti - liquidised liver, flour or rice or other dry carbohydrate of choice, egg. Bake as a loaf, slice, dice and freeze some while soft, then cut the rest into narrow struips and bake again in a very low oven until completely dry. The soft ones are good for training treats, the dry ones sit in a jar for handing out to good dogs (and cats!). I shall try your recipe with chicken (Sophy can't eat turkey) - it sounds to be one my dogs would love!

The ground turkey recipe sounds like something I'd love too. Maybe with salt added LOL. Might have to try all the recipes on this page-thanks everyone. I had no idea I could boil and cut up gizzards--usually I just sort of stare at them in the store and move on... Thank you .

Thanks for your recipes! Please let me know how your dogs like the treats, if you try the turkey/chicken.
Today Chloe spit the treats out at first when i gave her some right out of the fridge. But once they came to room temp, from being in the fridge, they were both eager to eat them. Whew, I got worried for a moment, Chloe rarely spits food out, but I can see why cold turkey would turn her off.
Can't wait to try your recipes!

I've recently started with 'puppy popsicles' considering it's coming into summer, and here that means all kinds of crazy heat. Pop three or four frozen blueberries into an ice cube mould, add almond milk, and freeze. The dogs love it! It's a good treat after a romp in the dog park, cools them down and keeps them busy for a few minutes.

Dog ice cream is a favourite here, so I must try your recipe Smudge (perhaps without the blueberries - mine accept fruit politely, then I find it later squished into rugs or furniture). I have done a frozen yoghurt in the past - ripe bananas and plain Greek style yoghurt whooshed together and frozen in ice cube trays. At the moment it is hard to believe it will ever be warm enough for ice cream again, though - we are still having frosts at night...
