DIY Project: Homemade doggie biscuits

It’s about time I get back on my own DIY 2012 wagon.  It’s May 5th already!

So yesterday little Bunsies and I made Duke pumpkin dog biscuits.  I told him we were making something extra-special for him.

Settle down, Duke.  No need to exert so much energy.

I used a recipe I found over at Simmer Till Done.  Apparently pumpkin soothes doggie tummy issues and since Duke has eaten our grass lately (why dog, why) and throwing it up a few hours later (why dog, why), I decided it was time I got a little pumpkin in his belly.  Brown rice flour is used because many dogs don’t tolerate wheat?  Who knew?  Probably people know–I’m just out of the loop.

Get a little helper with Unbrushed Wild Friday Hair to help ya.   

Mix up the ingredients and then roll out the dough.  Use cookie cutters to cut out the biscuits.  I didn’t have a dog bone so we used this dog cutter.  Or wolf?

Bake for 20 minutes, flip over and bake for another 20 minutes.  Voila!  Pumpkin dog biscuits.  They smelled like pumpkin and parsley.  Probably because there’s pumpkin and parsley in them.  🙂

The test:  Will Duke eat them?  I once found him standing at the kitchen counter eating sugar cookies off the cooling rack.  I suspected he would eat these, too.

“Sit and shake, boy!” 

I’ll just take this over to the rug mom vacuumed an hour ago and enjoy my biscuit in peace. 

DIY success!

    How do you store your treats and how long do you think they’ll be good?

  1. […] A bit of doggie festival swag.  Someone ate the rest not pictured. 🙂  And there was a bone-shaped cookie cutter in that paw print baggie.  Score!  I’d been wanting one for homemade dog biscuits!  […]
