This recipe makes a HUGE amount of doggie biscuits! I made some this Christmas for my co-workers, family and friends' dogs and saw one being devoured by my co-worker's new black Lab pup. The dough was really stiff - it actually bent one of my doggie bone cookie cutters and dried out as you worked it. I had to add more tomato juice and water after rolling out a portion of the dough, and returning to work to it. EDIT: Reviews are in! All of my co-workers' dogs loved the biscuits. One got "so crazy, she kept on getting paranoid that her treat was going to get taken from her!" Another co-worker's dog "kept on eyeing the bag on the counter and jumping up for them." Not bad for a "healthy" dog treat!
I changed these a bit - eliminated the salt - dogs don't have the taste for it like people - and it's not good for them. I also used some water in place of the tomato juice - tomatoes can cause heart palpitations in certain dogs - so I'm not willing to take that chance. Thanks for the starting point though!!
Dogs love these! Note- I found the dough very difficult to mix. Use your breadmachine's dough cycle!
I made these for my dog after buying a store brand of biscuits that produced "unfortunate" (phew!)side effects. She loves them, they agree with her better than the boughten biscuits and they are easy to make. I followed the advice of other reviewers and left out the salt and substitute water for tomato juice. I use my KitchenAid with the heavy-duty mixer attachment and have no problem. I especially like this recipe because it uses the same ingredients I use for making bread for the family.
This was a really good recipe. I added a half cup of grated parmesan cheese so it had more smell and taste and he liked them alot. They were pretty tasty for people too!
These taste really good. My dog likes them too. Not stale like those ones that come in a box.
Best dog biscuits, my dogs loved them.
I split the dough in half, I added peanut butter to one half and fresh grated Parmesan cheese to the other half. Your dog will love them.
I liked that the recipe made lots and biscuits were nice and crunchy. Dogs loved them. I eliminated the salt and garlic powder as well as substituted chicken broth for the tomato juice. I'm adding a piece from Wiki that you might want to read and investigate further dealing with what foods we should avoid when feeding our dogs. The three ingredients I eliminated/changed are included. I was fond of the texture of the final product but have rated it much lower because some dogs could be compromised if fed this biscuits. Sorry, but thought some might like to check health benefits more carefully.
From Wikipedia: Foods dangerous to dogs
Main articles: Dog health#Dangerous foods and Dog health#Common household substances
A number of common human foods and household ingestibles are toxic to dogs, including chocolate solids (theobromine poisoning), onion and garlic (thiosulfate, sulfoxide or disulfide poisoning), grapes and raisins, macadamia nuts, as well as various plants and other potentially ingested materials.
Green tomatoes should be avoided in a dog's diet because they contain tomatine, which is harmful to dogs. As the tomato ripens and turns red the tomatine disappears, and the tomato become safe for the dog to eat. The tomato plant itself is toxic.For more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_food
