Bakery Dog Treat

bakery dog treat

Make your own bakery dog treats and let your dog beg for more with this easy to make, delicious (I eat them myself) and healthy dog food recipe.

Organic dog treats make sure your dog’s life-span extends with a few years, but can you afford to buy organic dog food?

The alternative is using organic ingredients and make your own healthy dog treats. Homemade dog treats are easy to make and dogs are a much happier crowd than some restaurant customers 🙂

Below you can find a recipe for a delicious beef dog treat. If your dog prefers chicken dog treats, you just change the beef stock used with chicken stock. Always give your dog what he loves, as he will love you even more in return!

All natural dog treats should be made with organic ingredients to be the most tasty and the most healthy. Since you go the extra mile to make these holistic dog treats yourself, better go the extra mile and buy organic ingredients. Again: your dog will come back and beg you for more of your best dog treats!

  • 3/4 cup Beef stock / Chicken, Vegetable Or use hot water and 2 or 3 bouillon cubes
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup Bulgur (If you don’t have bulgur try substituting something like a 7-grain cereal)
  • 1/3 cup Bran
  • 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast

Bakery Dog Treat preparation

Healthy dog foods start with healthy ingredients and a healthy attitude when making these treats. So don’t rush-rush now but make sure you have some extra time available and enjoy what you are doing.

  1. Place ingredients in bread pan according to manufacturers directions and press “Dough” cycle.
  2. When machine beeps, remove dough to lightly floured countertop and with a rolling pin, roll dough out to ¼” thickness.
  3. Using a dog bone cookie cutter (or any small seasonal cookie cutters), cut out dog biscuits and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet or one sprinkled with cornmeal.
  4. Reroll scraps and repeat till all dough is used up. Place in a warm location and let rise 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 325F/170C for 30 minutes until brown and no longer soft. Place on a rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.

You can bash them up and use as ideal dog training treats as well…

Serve these organic dog biscuits with lots of love and if you have dog lover friends, why don’t you make more of these kind of healthy pet foods, start your own dog treat bakery and sell your bakery dog treats.

Home made dry dog shampoo ingredients

How to give your dog a dry home made shampoo bath


  1. Mix the ingredients and pour them into a container roomy enough to hold the pet. A large paper box for a big pet or a deep roasting dish for a small pet will work.
  2. Place the container filled with the mixture in the bathtub and gently place your pet into the pan or box. Rub the home made dry dog shampoo by handfuls into your pet’s fur until all the goo, oil or mess has been absorbed.
  3. Gently brush the home made dry dog shampoo mixture out of the fur. Be careful to keep the mixture out of your dog’s eyes,nose and ears.
  4. Dispose of the used home made dry dog shampoo.


It’s a good idea to follow up with a regular mild shampoo at this point if you can manage it. Rover’s recipes has 6 home made dog shampoos & soap recipes to choose from:


  • Home Made Aloe Vera Pet Shampoo
  • Baby Dog Shampoo Bar
  • Organic Home Made Doggie Body and Coat Tea
  • Goat ’s Milk, Carrot & Honey Shampoo Bar
  • Rosemary Castile Soap (For Dogs & Cats)
  • Solid Doggie Shampoo Bar


Nothing beats showing your love and affection for your dog than treating him with home made dog shampoo products.


They are easy to make and much cheaper than the dog shampoo products you buy in the shop! Especially when you opt to use organic pet shampoo only, considering buying Rover’s recipes will pay off due to more than 100 quick and easy dog treat recipes.


You can also give your dog a body scrub using a mixture from baby powder and baking soda. Leave it in for a few minutes and brush it out entirely.


How to give a dog a wet bath


If your dog like my border collie doesn’t want to sit still, let alone sit still waiting for a body bath – or you need to apply a dog flea shampoo or any other medicated dog shampoo – then put some dog shampoo in a spray bottle and use the garden hose to play with your dog.


Suddenly your dog will love to get wet and it’s not too difficult to spray the dog shampoo with the spray bottle on your dog and then give him "an amazingly good rub" reward 🙂


Rinse the dog shampoo from your dog through further playing with the garden hose.

Natural pet food

natural dog food

Yorkshire terrier Pebbles is treated for kidney failure
after eating dog food that was later recalled.
The 7-year-old dog has died already…

The reason why natural pet food is so important for your dog is illustrated by Pebbles: the above cute Yorkshire terrier killed by eating… pet food from the pet shop!

Pebbles became ill with kidney failure after being fed Nutro pet food : a Menu Foods manufactured product. The toxin aminopterin, used to kill rats, was found in the wet pet food. Nobody knows how the poison got there.

So before you go to the shop thinking you will be safe buying healthy pet food, think again! better make your own dog treats if your health of your dog is as important as your own health. After all: do you eat every day food out of a can???
