Peanut Butter and Chicken Dog Biscuits.

Dog Treats, Homemade Dog Treats, Peanut Butter and Chicken, Peanut Butter and Chicken Dog Treats So Saturday night while out shopping I asked the hubs to stop at Petsmart so I could get the girls some treats. He obliged because well those girls are like our kids and we spoil them to death. I really only ran in to get them a bully stick, but while there I couldn’t help head over to the dog biscuits as our stock was getting rather low and God forbid its treat time and I don’t have any in the house.

Treats can be pretty expensive and I’m picky about what I give my girls.I like to get the kind made with apples or pomegranates and I also make sure they’re not made in China. As were paying my husband whispers, “it would be cheaper if you made your own”. At first I just brushed this off as him being cheap, but as I was sitting at home later that night I realized he was right. I could make these at home and save us a butt load of money doing it.

Last Sunday I decided to make a trial batch of biscuits. Since I wasn’t really sure what I was in for I decided to just use things around the house. I knew that the girls loved peanut butter and chicken and after some debate with my husband who reminded me that I’d never done this before I decided to stick with those two things as the main ingredients.  A bit later Peanut Butter and Chicken Dog Biscuits were born.

Jada our oldest was supposed to be a small little purse dog. I had dreams of carrying her with me everywhere. We were going to travel the world, that is until she grew to be almost 50lbs and would just walk over her carrier. Jada can be a picky eater so I had her test out the treats first. She gobbled hers down and so I knew I was good to go.  Homemade Dog Treats, Dog Biscuits, Peanut Butter and Chicken Dog Biscuits
JujuBee came to our family by way of the Philadelphia SPCA. She’d been seized from her previous owners due to abuse and neglect. I would love to tell you that when she came to us we knew it was a match made in heaven, but that’s a story for another day. JujuBee loves to gobble food down. She sits in the kitchen and waits for me to give her squash and zucchini. She eats carrots and even apples. She’s still learning how to be gentle when taking a treat so I had to snap this picture quick. Of course, she loved the treats as well..

Ingredients
  1. 2 1/2 cups of Whole Wheat or White Flour
  2. 1 Egg
  3. 1 tsp of Cinnamon
  4. 2 tbsp All Natural Peanut Butter
  5. 1 Chicken Bouillon
  6. 1/2 cup of hot water
Instructions
  1. Boil water and allow chicken bouillon to dissolve. Mix all ingredients together and knead the dough mixture until throughly mixed. This can take about 4-5 minutes. Lightly sprinkle flour on the surface you plan to roll out the dough on. Roll out the dough to at least 1/2 an inch thick, though this is dependent on how thick you'd like your biscuits. Cut out biscuits and place on a cookie sheet. Knead the dough to reuse left over to get maximum yield. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping over the biscuits after 15 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

    OMG they are too adorable….the doggies and their treats! I don’t have any pets currently but when the kids are old enough to help take care of a dog, we will get one then 🙂 Who knew you could make your own? I’ll definitely be sharing with my puppy owner friends 🙂

    How cute is this post. I showed my husband now he says he is making cookies for the dog this weekend. We shall see. My mom cooks for her dog all the time so I will share this with her too.

    If I still had a dog, I’d definitely try them out for it.

    I don’t have a dog but I know a lot of people who do and they all seem to love peanut butter.

    What a sweet pup you have!! And these look easy to do. We adopted a dog but eventually had to give her away after she became violent to me while I was pregnant and then got worse when Elle was born. Breaks my heart b/c while it was tough loving her, I still miss her!

    I used to make my own dog treats all the time. When I was a dog trainer, I had a special recipe I made! I had to make a dog love me pretty quick, so you know these were goooood. LOL. Now, my dogs would forsake me for a Dentastick. I swear, those things are doggy crack.

      One of my dogs will not eat a dentastick. I think she knows they’re good for her.
