Roll the dough so that it is ¼” thick and cut into shapes. (We like triangles)

Bake on lightly oiled cookie sheet for 25-30 minutes. (Less time for chewy treats)

Then cut and serve.

 

Pug Pops

1/2C corn meal

14 1/2oz can beef or chicken broth (or make your own)

1/2C non-fat dry milk

1 tsp salt

1 pkg dry yeast

1/4C warm water

1 Tblsp milk

1 beaten egg

Dissolve yeast in 1/4C warm water and let proof. Warm the broth to about 110°. 

In large bowl, mix 2 flours, oats, wheat germ, corn meal, dry milk and salt.

Stir in broth and yeast mixture. 

Knead by hand for at least 3 minutes. 

Don’t skimp on the kneading time! Roll into a 1/2″ thick sheet and cut

with cookie cutter, or roll into a log shape and slice to desired size. 

Mix the egg and milk and brush on before baking. 

Bake at 300° for about 40 minutes ( a little longer if they’re big). 

Turn off oven and leave in overnight. (the longer you leave them in the warm oven, the crunchier they get.) Haven’t met a dog in the park yet who doesn’t love these all natural healthy treats!

Knead the dough for 3-4 minutes and roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes, place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 50 minutes.

(Chopped Liver: Just boil the liver until it is grey and a rubbery consistency. Or if you have a

microwave, cook it on high for about 8 mins. Chop it up into small pieces and when cool put the pieces into a number of airtight bags and store in the fridge. Use liver pieces as treats when training)

Scones:

Sift flour and salt into a bowl, rub in butter. Add chopped liver. Use a knife to stir in milk and

LiverAlone Treats

All you need are beef livers. Try your local meat packers; they often throw them away.

Or you can buy fresh liver from the supermarket.

Cut the liver into approximately 1 inch slices. Place in your food dehydrator for 24 hours*. Use

Pam or the equivalent on the drying racks, so the liver won’t stick. Let dry for 24 hours.

Boil chicken breasts in a small amount of water until done; chop. Cook carrots in a small amount of water until tender but not mushy. Mix both with the rice and cottage cheese. You may want to add some broth from the meat or carrots if it seems too dry. A nice plain meal to get your baby ‘firmed up.’ Keep any leftovers in the fridge.

Chop up the marrow/meat/gristle into little bits, and put them into each section of the tray. Freeze solid.

Meals:

Chicken and Kibble

3 to 4 chicken breasts (no bone, no skin)

1 1/2 cups non-sticky rice (we use basmati)

Microwave the chicken breasts until fully cooked. Cut into tip of the finger size pieces. Reserve the juice for the first meal. Steam the rice until fully cooked. Combine the chicken and rice. Add a pinch of salt if you didn’t already salt the rice. Add any other seasoning your dog likes. (Ours have severe allergies, so we season with Feverfew.)

When ready to feed the dogs, combine half their recommended kibble with sufficient chicken/rice mixture to make up about 1/3 their ration. Make up the rest with fat free cottage cheese.

This makes a very low fat diet, typically less than 10%. You can add vegetable fats or fish oil to improve vitamin absorption, but do be sparing. In the first batch of food, add the cooking juices from the chicken to the kibble.

This recipe makes enough food for several feedings, so don’t put the chicken drippings in the

storage container: it will only hasten spoilage. Also, don’t leave the mix down: it will spoil very

fast.

We make a batch of chicken/rice every other day. Our two dogs combined weigh over 200

pounds. If you have one or smaller dogs, you can reduce the recipe. 

 

Dachshund’s Noodle Jumble

2 cups of macaroni

2 cup of mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn, etc.)

3/4 to 1 lb. of meat (ground beef or chicken)

3 cups water

2 tbs. olive oil

3 large cloves of garlic (pressed)

Add meat and water to pot and boil bring to boil. Let simmer for 15 minutes and strain off meat. Save 1 3/4 cups of boiled stock. Now add water and boil macaroni until it begins to feel soft. Add frozen vegetables and let sit in water for a couple of minutes. 

Strain noodles/vegetables and turn heat to medium. Dissolve corn starch in 1/4 cup of cold water. Add meat, noodles, vegetable, olive oil, garlic and stock to pot. Stir until mixture begins to bubble. Turn heat to medium low and stir in water/corn starch mixture. Stir on element for a few minutes until it thickens (add more corn starch mixture if contents are still thin). Remove from element and let it cool to room temperature.

Take 1 cup dry measuring cup and scoop out increments onto pieces of plastic wrap. Wrap up and freeze. We will usually thaw one out the night before and split it up into two servings (we add some kibble).

Makes approximately 6 servings.

Romantic Dinner for Two

3 carrots

1 cup cabbage

2 tablespoons Canola, Flax Seed, or Olive Oil

1 can of baked beans

1 tin of sardines

Garlic (cloves/pureed or powder)

Puree vegetables in food processor or blender. Mash vegetables and ground beef together in a bowl, with a potato masher or with your hands. Crack the eggs into the bowl, including the shells (for extra calcium).

Meat Patties for the Month

6 pounds hamburger

2 sweet potatoes, cut up, boiled, mashed

24 oz. cottage cheese

1 apple

1 pear

3 Tbs Soy &/or Worcestershire Sauce

12-15 dog vitamins; crushed (a coffee grinder works wonderfully for this!)

Cut up the sweet potatoes and boil for about 15 minutes, until mashable. 

While sweet potatoes are boiling, put onion, pear and apple through food processor (chop cycle).  Combine all (mashed sweet potatoes, chopped onion, pear and apple, cottage cheese, Soy and/or Worcestershire Sauce and dog vitamins) with hamburger. 

I just dig my hands in a mix it all up. It’s squishy, but it works the best! I use a 1/2 cup scoop to make meat patties. It will make approximately 27 half-cup meat patties. Keep out enough for two days and freeze the rest. 

For a remarkable tasty meal, I microwave a meat patty for 5-6 minutes and combine the meat patty and its juices with 1 cup kibble, 1 cup oatmeal, 1 cup fresh vegetables and about 1/2 cup 2% milk.

This feeds one very active large size dog (about 50-60 lb). 

For a change, instead of oatmeal, use polenta, brown rice, or pasta. 

Use a variety of fresh vegetables, cabbage, carrots, corn, potatoes, green beans, peas, broccoli, etc. or throw in a fruit or two. If you plan to feed this daily, please

switch over SLOWLY!  Your dog will LOVE it, have a glowing coat and be happy and healthy.

Tips for Using Food Processors

This recipe is too large to mix in the average food processor, so I often follow the below since using the food processor is quicker and more convenient for me.

Mix up the dry and put in an air tight container. [Coffee tins with plastic lids work well] and store in the fridge.

This way I have an easy way to produce food processor size recipes with little fuss or bother.  

Use about 2 cups of the dry with 1/4 of the balance [see bracketed amounts to right of ingredient]

Since it might be difficult to use only 1/4 of a tin of sardines or other fish, I often use the full tin and then add water slowly to obtain the correct consistency.

I also often add grated cheese and vegetables to this recipe for variety.

This method takes about 5 minutes or so to mix up and roll out.

 

Other Tips:

To simplify the cutting into bit sized pieces, I use a pizza cutter. 

This makes short work of the chore!

Note: The food processor method makes enough food to last adult Golden about 2 days.
