A client gave me these recipes and they are great. I made them this past weekend and they were easy and well received by our dogs. I thought I'd share them with you. Happy baking!

Basic Gourmet Dog Snack

These are easy and very good (well at least my parents dog loves them!).


  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup water or broth (chicken or beef broth {avoid bouillon with onion})


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. Mix together all ingredients.
    3. Gently roll out to ¼ inch thickness.
    4. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter.
    5. Bake 30 – 40 minutes
    6. Allow to cool and store in a tightly sealed container.

    Easy Microwave Doggie Treats

    These are also easy and turn out very good. I was a little apprehensive about trying this recipe the first time but now it is one of my favorite dog treat recipes.


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • ¾ cup dry milk
  • 1/3 cup shortening (5 1/3 Tbsp)
  • 1 tablespoon bouillon granules (beef or chicken {avoid onion flavored bouillon})*
  • ½ cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • ½ cup hot water


    1. Combine flour, cornmeal, milk, oats and sugar.
    2. Cut into shortening.
    3. Add egg, bouillon and hot water.
    4. Knead 5 minutes.
    5. Roll ½ inch thick and cut out with cookie cutters. (Bone shapes are great! The smaller shapes work better and allow the cookie to cook more evenly. If possible – avoid extra large cookie shapes for this microwave recipe.)
    6. Microwave in a microwave proof dish at 50% power for 5 to 10 minutes. (I've always needed close to 10 minutes).
    7. Allow to cool – remove from plate.
    8. Allow to cool and store in tightly sealed container.

    * If you don't have the granules – use one bouillon cube in the ½ cup of hot water. Allow to dissolve and t his works great too.
