This dog needs a biscuit recipe

A happy dog means a happy home and his healthy treat is going to make the season special for your dog!

Nutrition

Keeping your dog happy and safe involves feeding them a healthy diet which is suitable for their lifestyle and stage in life. A quick dive into dog nutrition shows us there are six macro nutrients that every dog needs:

  • Protein
  • Fats
  • Carbohydrates
  • Minerals
  • Vitamins
  • Water

The recipe below uses ingredients which have elements of all these nutrients so there is nothing stopping you from sharing these tasty snacks with your pooch.

 

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup plain flour* (mix in one tsp baking powder)
  • ¾ cup oats
  • ½ ounce cooking oil
  • Two medium sized eggs
  • ½ ounce honey or apple sauce (depending on Fido’s favorite!)
  • ½ ounce peanut butter (make sure it is without Xylitol)

*If your dog has a wheat allergy, you can substitute rice flour.

 

Biscuit Directions

  1. Heat your oven to 365°F
  2. Mix and knead all of the ingredients creating a stodgy and firm dough
  3. Roll the dough out onto a flat surface to a depth of 1cm
  4. Use your biscuit cutter to cut the dough (around 20 biscuits)
  5. Place the biscuits onto a greased baking tray
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes

 

Play Mix the Cup

How about sharing these tasty biscuits with your dog while having a little fun? Playing brain games and teaching new tricks is a great way to bond with your dog during Christmas!

Mix the Cup Game:

  1. Start with three plastic cups
  2. Place a biscuit under one cup (let your dog watch)
  3. Mix the three cups
  4. Let your dog approach the cup with the treat
  5. Reward your dog and give them the treat when they sniff the correct cup!

 

Like with any snack, moderate your dog’s calorie intake and don’t overfeed them. Overfeeding a dog on carbs isn’t compatible with their high protein natural diet.

Your dog is sure to LOVE this simple biscuit recipe with natural ingredients and they even have a great after taste! Celebrating Christmas with your family and pets is a special time of the year. Enjoy making memories!
