I was thinking about making some home-made dog treats. What are some of your favorite recipes? I was thinking about something with cheap ingredients, easy to make, and looks "pretty". (I'm too squeamish for liver)

I saw that thread thanks. Idk which ones "look pretty" just by their recipe. I wanted to bake them to give to customers dogs for holidays, the dogs bday, etc. So I want them to taste good and look nice.

I think you could take a lot of recipes and shape them before baking if you can find some cute cookie cutters. I know that Petco was selling little bone cutters for $1 when I worked there, so they are out there! You could also find some bags or plastic wrap that is cute and doggy related, or perhaps ribbon to tie off plain wrap that is dog related. I know Petco also sells these little boxes that fold up like Chinese take out boxes for $1, something like that with treats in would be cute!

OT but do you enjoy being able to say - "when I worked there" :neener:

But I agree, if you got some cool cookie cutters you could make them look good. Also you might talk to Erin [theredqueen] she sent LiLo some carob yummies that were meant for LiLo but I ate them instead - they looked like human food :|

I think Erin/TheRedQueen has my recipe that I came up with on her site, I think it's called Oscar's. Its doesn't have any meat and only has 1 egg.
I work at a private kennel with 27 picky (who get dried tripe, beefheart, veal chews, dental chews, loads of fancy dog type chews) dogs and I took in a batch and "tested" them out, I think I had 2 that weren't interested and the rest ate them. So I took that as a bonus! :) In the end, I liked the taste of the final tweek of the recipe and ended up eating quite a few of them :lol3: They were also a hit with the 4 family and friend dogs I gave them to.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

So you're looking for treats that you can roll out and cut with cookie cutters, instead of training treats, right?

What flavors/ingredients would you like? I have many, many recipes that I love...just depends on what you're looking for!

Yes! I use cute up pieces of cheese and hot dogs for training. I want ones that would look nice in a bag that I could give to customers for appreciation, dogs bday, etc. No garlic or liver! Garlic breath wouldn't make my customers happy rofl. I'm too squeamish for liver. Ingredients that are cheap and I probably have at my house already. I could go to the store for a few items. Cheese, peanut butter, tuna, or similar items. Or whatever you feel like typing lol. I think I'm just going to go with the cookie cutters from Hobby Lobby for now.

Well I don't have any cookies, but I've made these pup cakes

Here is how mine turned out. You could probably get a icing bag and make them have a swirly top.

For the Pretty Inna's Sweet Treats there's a typo. It says 1/2 milk. Is that supposed to be 1/2 cup milk?

Thanks! I pride myself on proofreading, and didn't proof my own stuff...lol.

Should be 1/2 cup milk...yup!

Yum!!! Those look great. I decided to throw a random few things together because I'm too lazy to go to the store right now.I mixed Peanut butter, apple and cinnamon oatmeal, soy milk, flour, and baking soda. I tested them on my fur children today and they seem to be a hit! I took pics of my adventure.
