Homemade Dog Treat Recipe! These dog treats are easy to make, and our dogs love these dog biscuits. I'm wondering if there's a difference between dog treats and dog biscuits, maybe dog treats is a more general term and dog biscuits refer to baked dog treats like these sweet potato dog treats we made for the Labradors.
While working on this recipe, I found the amount of milk you add varies depending on how large and how moist the sweet potato is. You want the dough to be kinda dry, like pie crust dough, not wet. I've reduced the amount of milk in the dog treat recipe here, after mixing in the dry ingredients, you can add more milk or water if the dough is too dry to work with a rolling pin.
You also might consider adding in brewer's yeast or powdered garlic to these dog treats, if you've found those ingredients help your dog's health, or flax seed perhaps? What do you think?
I add flax seed oil to our Labrador's breakfast to supplement their omega 3,6,9 intake. Keep flax seed oil in the fridge, btw. If you want to buy flax seed oil, its usually kept in the fridge case of the health food store.
If you don't have a dog biscuit cookie cutter, you can use a glass or tuna can to cut out round dog treats, but its fun for kids to make dog bone style treats.
