Can you sub the dry milk or leave it out?

I have baked for my dogs before, but yours are the first recipes I actually feel good giving to her. Most other recipes have a lot of fats and sugars in them. Yours are healthier and she is a pain in the rear once I start baking them for her because she knows what I'm making. Thank you so much for these recipes.

Anyone know a shelf life for these biscuits?

These sound great for people, but garlic can be toxic to dogs. I wouldn't chance it.

By A on December 10, 2012


I haven't made these yet, but I would recommend that other omit the garlic salt/powder from this receipt. Garlic is toxic to pets, so while it make food delicious to humans, it makes it poisonous to dogs.

Garlic is toxic to many dogs,so be careful

By Anonymous on December 03, 2012


Our fur babies loved them smile I subbed a couple things ... Garlic powder instead of garlic salt, chicken stock (low sodium) instead of water, 4cheese blend ( didn't have cheddar on hand), olive oil instead of vegetable, and I also used whole wheat flour. Turned out great and makes the kitchen smell good too!

You can adjust any recipe to make it healthier. Change AP flour to Wheat, Br. Rice, Buckwheat, Oat or a combo of them. Use olive oil instead of veg. oil. A little garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Etc.

Hi Paula, I made these treats for my dog Abby and she loved them. "Abby" packaged a bunch up for her friends on Valentines day. All of our friends loved them and asked for the recipe. I made sure everyone knows it is one of your wonderfull recipes. Thank you so much for expanding my (and my dogs) recipes!!!!

@Ruth - 2 teaspoons of garlic for 24 treats isn't going to hurt your dog unless you feed them all 24 treats at one time. Garlic (in it's natural form) is used by many holostic vets as ways to keep fleas off dogs. Garlic in small amounts does not harm your dog. Can it kill your dog? Sure, if it gets a hold of an entire head of garlic. For a dog to actually get hemolytic anemia, it would need to eat .5% of its body weight. I have a 65 lb. Lab mix at home so she would need to eat 33 ounces of garlic to harm her (which amounts to around four or five garlic cloves) and since you mentioned onions, she'd need to eat a whole onion to cause that type of anemia. Using 2 tsps. of garlic salt for 24 cookies is perfectly adequate for this recipe. For more info, please check out this link:
