Bullies Are- The Best!

And I am SO disappointed with the lack of HEALTHY TREATS they have.

They have NOTHING! Everything has corn, wheat, gluten, sugar, and JUNK! shrug

I'm just so disappointed that I can't ever find real healthy, yummy treats for Dulce.

Although I do have the sweet potato chews, and give her Natural Balance raw rolls for training treats, I still like to occassionally give her snacks.

And after all this, I remembered...I make dog treats that are healthy! A year ago I started making them, and I even made some money!

All there is in them is peanut butter, chicken broth, and flour! So I'm going to start making them again!

Just wanted to share! cheercheer

That is why I was sad that Cali Feed went out of business. Also they stayed open late the night that we got Sooke.
My wife makes the dogs treats all the time. She has three or four books for dog treats. Let me know if you would like recipies posted or sent to you.
The greatest thing besides the natural roll are Charlie Bears. Good ol' Trader Joe's.

I know what you mean about unhealthy treats. I can find healthy ones but man are they expensive. We tried a new one called Plato's Smart Treats, they have salmon, chicken and duck flavor. My dogs love them but they are 13 to 14 dollars for a 1 pound bag. I make them last a long time by breaking them up into small pieces but can't afford to buy them to often.

Have you ever tried Gio's recipe for Fishy Fudge ? I made it just last week and my dogs love them.

Gio's Fishy Fudge

List of Ingredients

2 cans of tuna in water

2 eggs

1 teaspoon garlic powder, optional

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Put the tuna (don't drain it, include the water too), eggs and garlic in a blender. Blend it until it is all combined. If you like it a bit chunkier, then don't blend as much, but it is easier to mix if it is nice and smooth. Pour into a bowl and mix in the flour, it should be the consistency of putty so add water or flour until it feels about right. Grease an 8x8 glass baking dish and press the dough in. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Take out the dish and cut into ~1 inch squares. It will still be sticky and a bit goopy so leave it in the dish and put back in the oven at 350 for another 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and cool for a few minutes before removing from the dish and breaking into your precut squares. Let cool on the counter then store in the fridge in an airtight container.

The garlic is listed as optional because some people worry about garlic toxicity. There isn't much in these so it really isn't a problem, but you can leave it out and it won't really change the recipe much.

If you store them in a plastic container (tupperware, gladware, old margarine container) they will last in the fridge for over a week. But make sure they are good and cool before storing them or the condensation makes 'em slimier faster BOL

I like that they are soft and easy to break apart, so I use them for training. They can be broken into pea-sized chunks and still stink to high-heavens so are awesome for training!

Homemade Frosty Paws

List of Ingredients

1 quart plain or vanilla yogurt

1 banana or 1 large jar banana baby food

2 tablespoons peanut butter

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons carob powder (optional)


If using regular banana mash well....mix all ingredients until well blended (you could use a food processor or blender). Place into ice cube trays or small bathroom sized cups and freeze. Once frozen you can store in freezer in plastic bag. The great thing is you can play with recipe and add stuff that your dog likes. I use the carob powder or carob chips. Some people add granola to theirs.

Marlowe's Liver Treats

List of Ingredients

1 pound beef liver

4 eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour (whatever kind your dog tolerates best, wheat, corn, oat, spelt etc...)

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon kelp powder (optional, but stinky!)


Puree the liver with the eggs. It helps if you take some scissors and cut up the liver into small pieces first. Gross? Yes. Anyway, puree it and then mix in the flour, garlic and kelp. Spread it onto a large greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let it cool then cut into small squares. They can be frozen pretty much indefinately. I filled a gallon ziploc with them, and keep them in the freezer and just take out a handful at a time and keep those in the fridge.

Anything with salmon, duck, or any kind of fish? (other than Tuna?)

Well, I'll look thru them and adjust them to my liking.

I bet you can use salmon in the Fishy Fudge and possibly in the liver treats too instead of liver.
