There’s no better way to spoil the one you love than by baking them homemade treats. Why should your dog be any different? Plus, buying treats every month can get expensive. This dog biscuit recipe will get your dog’s tail wagging, and keep some extra money in your pocket.

Ingredients You Need:

  • 2 ½ cups white flour (or whole wheat)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 chicken or beef bouillon cube
  • ½ cup hot water
  • baking sheet
  • cookie cutter in the shape of a bone!

How to Make Homemade Dog Biscuits:

Step 1:

Start by preheating your oven to 350˚.
Put the 1/2 cup of water into a microwavable bowl and heat it until it’s almost boiling. Then drop your bouillon cube in the water to dissolve.

It helped us to dip the cutter in some flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the cutter.

Continue to cut your bones, alternating the placement of the cutter to get the most out of your dough.

 

Step 4:

Place the dog biscuits on the cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes!

These sound easy to make. I want to try making these; however, you don’t mention storage. Do you need to keep them refrigerated? What is their self life.
Thanks

They do not need to be refrigerated. The shelf life, erring on the safe side, is 6 months.

There’s a “Good Doggy Cake” recipe in Joanne Fluke’s, Apple Turnover Murder book. She also has a “Good Kitty Cake” in one of her books, but I can’t find it right now. I’d type the recipe out, but I’m not sure if there is a copyright law, so I don’t want to take the chance. Hope this helps a little.

I doubled the recipe, deleted the salt, and used a rounded teaspoon of beef soup base, it a more intense flavor than buillon. My “little doggie”, Bella an 80lb Amstaff, loves the biscuits. I didn’t have a bone shaped cookie cutter so I used a 2″ dia. biscuit cutter. Bella doesn’t seem to care what shape they are. The next batch I make will have some chopped up beef jerkey in it. I tasted the round “doggy bones” I made for Bella and put a dozen of them back in the oven at 200F for four hours to dry ’em… Read more »

Be careful with the wheat flour. Many dogs are gluten sensitive. This can lead to anal gland problems. I found this out the hard way. Also many beef boullions contain onion. Stick to chicken.

Kathie,
I haven’t found dog bone cookie cutters in any stores yet (tho I am sure some places do sell them). I found dog shaped cookie cutters in TJ Maxx Home Goods store. So I am using those.

Baking these cookies now for my pooch. I’ll let you know how she likes them, Stephanie!

I was told that bone shaped cookie cutters are a specialty item and most stores and pet shops only have them at Christmas. Still looking though.
I make “cookies” for our dogs. 2 c wheat flour, 1 Tbls baking powder, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup milk. Mix milk and peanut butter together, mixing well. Add flour and baking powder and mix well. Roll out on floured board, cut, and bake @ 375 degree for 20 minutes. Ours just love these. I would like to try this recipe also. I might add bacon bits{ the soft ones }.

I don’t know where you live but if you have a bulk barn or some place like that, that sells stuff in bulk, they should have bone cookie cutters. I got three different sizes at our bulk barn, but I live in Canada.

I would think that bouillon cubes would have to much sodium in them to be very healthy for dogs I would have to try and find a different meat flavoring

I make similar – added ingredients can include, grated carrot, other veggies, cheese, peanut butter, corn meal. I also save drippings from meats/bacon (freeze) and then add in place of any oil in my recipe.

If you don’t have a “dog bone” cutter just use any shape you have and like, like a star, tree, cat, dog etc. . . The only one that will know the difference is you. Your puppy could care less. JS

Need to come up that don’t have wheat in them for pets who can’t have wheat. Oatmeal is a good SAFE way to make treats even for for pets who can’t have wheat. I talked to my pet’s Dermatologist about it, and she said it was safe to give oatmeal any pet with allergies.
And if you look in GoodWills they have a bunch of great cookie cutters. I found about 30 of them on off. And they are cheap.

I have a dog with a gluten allergy. I substituted some left over gluten free flour blend and they worked fine. (Or you can grind up rice for rice flour if you don’t have gluten free flour) Way cheaper than buying special dog biscuits at the pet store! Also I added 1/2 cup peanut butter to one of the batches instead of the bouillon. The dogs loved both versions!

Me and the kiddos enjoyed these tasty biscuits! Don’t use the bone cookie cutter or you feel like a dog. My dog tried to eat one but a smacked him away and said these are my biscuits!! The kiddos begged for more. The liver powder topped off the whole recipe. Thanks for sharing this divine desert!

Hello. Thank you for sharing your recipe 🙂 I made these for the first time yesterday and the pups loved them. I stored them in a Rubbermaid container since I do not have a cute cookie jar at the moment. Today I gave my pups their cookies, but I noticed that they are no longer crunchy. They are more pliable, like a stale cookie or cracker would be is how I would describe it. What did I do wrong? I used Wheat Flour because I made another recipe that required the same so I just stuck with it. I stored… Read more »

I saw this recipe posted on Pinterest & I am Very concerned about Dogs getting sick from the use of Bouillon in it as it has MSG & a lot of salt in it. MSG is VERY TOXIC to dogs or any animal & can make them very sick over time & even kill them as it stays in the liver & fatty tissues.MSG in foods such as Bouillon is not good for humans either & it doesn’t take as much for our furry friends to make them sick as humans. Do you really want to promote a recipe that… Read more »
