    2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup of pumpkin ( NOT pie pumpkin )
    1/2 cup of peanut butter ( crunchy or smooth, your choice )
    1 tsp. of baking powder
    1/2 cup of water

    I used all natural ingredients. They do cost a bit more, but aren't our babies worth it?

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together all ingredients except water. Mix well until the dough is firm and not too sticky. If it is too sticky, add a little flour, it it's too dry, add a splash of cold water. I found that I needed to add water just to get it mixed into a dough.

    On a slightly floured surface, I used parchment paper, roll dough out to 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes and pop them into the oven for 20-30 minutes. I baked mine for about 13-15 minutes, any longer and they burned. When they are done they will be slightly brown and firm. Place on rack to cool. I used an old salt shaker lid to cut mine into quarter sized circles. The recipe didn't say anything about storage, but I imagine that since there are no preservatives in the ingredients I used, I would keep them in an air tight container in the fridge for about 2 weeks, and about 2-3 months in the freezer. My kiddos love them!!

    If you would like to add any variations or additions to the recipe, please share! I'm always looking for new ideas for my pups! :thumbsup:

    I was just looking through my Doberlicious recipe book and thought I'd post a few.

    Salmon Treats

    1 15 oz can salmon with juice
    1 egg
    1 T vegetable oil
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
    1 cubes flour (I wonder if they mean 1 cup?)

    Preheat oven to 350°. Put the salmon (bones and all - they are very soft), egg and oil into a blender or processor and mix a few seconds. Pour into mixing bowl , add dry mild powder and flour and mix well. Spray and 8 X 8 pan with Pam. Spread mixture and bake for about 25 minutes or until lightly brown on top. Cool and cut into whatever size pieces you want. If you want a thinner treat, bake in a 9 X 13 pan.
    Store in refrigerator or freeze some for later.

    And one for the cuteness factor. ;)

    Preserved Children

    1 large field
    1/2 doz. children
    2 dash of Dobermans
    1 pinch of Brook and Pebbles

    Mix the children and Dobermans well together. Put them on the field, stirring constantly. Pour the brook over the pebbles, sprinkle the field with flowers. Spread over all a deep blue sky and bake in the sun. When brown, set away to cool in the bathtub.

    JanS that reminds me of a Salmon Cookie recipe I make and keep on hand for Luca.

    I don't know the rations off the top of my head but its 1 can drained Salmon, 1 egg, parsley, and flour of choice. Rice flour for gluten free, Garbanzo bead flour for gluten and grain free. Luca gobbles them up!

    I came across this one in a Cesar magazine and it looks really simple. I bet it would be great for upset tummies too.

    Pumpkin Ice Cream

    1 - 29 oz. can pure pumpkin
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    1 cup plain yogurt

    Add pumpkin, peanut butter and yougurt to a blender and blend until smooth.

    Pour mixture into a freezer safe container or make individual portions in an ice cube tray. Cover and freeze for several hours before serving, or store in an air tight container in the freezer for later use.

    Lol Jan... first I took the second recipe seriously and was thinking what the heck is Dobermans.... hahahahahaha

    Thanks for great recipes. I will try to do liver treats today. Salmon treats sounds really yummy too (Gino and Asha :))

    I am just curious why so many treats without any meat?

    Grain Free Sweet Potato Treats

    Excuse the bad image, but I wanted to share them. These aren't too well to shape like I did, so the shapes look a little rough. Anyway, I was experimenting today and wanted to share this recipe! My dogs LOVED these and are still begging for more. They are soft and chewy so they are ideal for training treats. They are also easy to break up if you need smaller pieces than you cut. They don't take too long to prepare, but they can get a little messy.

    1/2 cup baked sweat potato(roughly half of a large potato or a whole small one)
    2 eggs
    3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
    1/4 cup coconut oil(liquid state)
    1 teaspoon all natural honey
    6 tablespoons coconut flower
    pinch of salt

    1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
    2. After baking the sweet potato and letting it cool, remove the skin and mash the rest in a medium sized bowl.
    3. With a beater or food processor, combine sweat potato, eggs, applesauce, oil, and honey until fairly smooth.
    4. Add coconut flower(slowly if needed) until fairly smooth.
    5. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking pan and smooth the mixture out evenly. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
    6. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the outsides are slightly rough/firm.
    7. Cut into small, treat sized portions.
    8. Bake for another 10 minutes or until edges are browning slightly.
    9. Allow to cool for about 5-10 minutes before placing into a container.
    10. Refrigerate between uses.

    Like I said earlier, my dogs adored this treat and it is soft yet still fairly firm. I added a bit more coconut flower to firm it up a little, but that was mostly because I wanted to shape them. If you still want to shape them, they are soft enough to be cut with cookie cutters once they come out the first time.

    I'm wondering about making this to use for training treats. Addy loves his treats and I've been thinking lately that commercial treats are full of stuff I can't say (or too costly) and because I use a lot of treats throughout the day I don't want to be using cheese, liver, etc. So...question. Do these break into small pieces, pea size is what I'm looking for, without turning into crumbs and, how long do they keep?

    Ohhh, here's another. A whole site! This one is loaded with recipes of all sorts. Yay!!!!! I've got blueberries, think I'm going to try this one today.

    On the same topic, has anyone tried any of the various recipes using brewers yeast as a means of deterring fleas and ticks? Any thoughs on the subject? Please comment if you think there's any validity to the claim

    I just posted the recipe I use for flea and tick control. We haven't had any issues at all. I use brewer's yeast, garlic, and acv.

    Thanks, I scrolled up and saw it. Does it form a paste or is it more liquid? You feed it to them? Spray it on them? How often?
    Gawds, I feel like a dunce asking all these questions!

    Kinda in between. It is pudding consistency, some people freeze it and feed it frozen, I just use a tablespoon everyday and scoop out enough.
