What are some cookies for dogs

Skip to content
November

It's slowly getting Christmas. Our dogs shouldn't be neglected here. Baking dog biscuits yourself is far less effort than many dog ​​owners imagine and they are a healthy treat for dogs.
.

.
There are an incredible number of different types of dog biscuits available in pet shops.
If you take a closer look at the list of ingredients, you will quickly see how bad and inferior, in some cases even harmful to health, these biscuits are.
Many of these products contain sugar or sugar substitutes, artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, just to name a few of the possible chemical additives. Such substances and ingredients do not belong in the dog's organism and can even be detrimental to health in the long term.
Of course, there are also high-quality and healthy dog ​​biscuits in specialist shops, but these are then much more expensive. For very high-quality products, such as baked cookies that are made purely with natural ingredients, the dog owner has to dig a little deeper into his pocket. There is hardly anything wrong with the list of ingredients here. Depending on the size of the dog and the need for dog biscuits, buying such products can be very expensive.

.

Cheaper and healthy on top of that, you can simply bake the biscuits for your dog yourself.
The dog's special preferences can be catered for and the dog owner knows 100% what is in the biscuits.
This is also a great advantage if you have a dog with food intolerance. Only those ingredients that the dog can tolerate can be used in a targeted manner.

Basic recipe for dog biscuits

There is a simple basic recipe for making homemade dog biscuits that can be refined according to your own wishes and preferences.

.
Ingredients:

500g wholemeal spelled flour
50g steamed and pureed veal liver or poultry or fish
2-3 eggs
3 tbsp olive oil
200-300 ml meat / vegetable stock
fresh herbs (dill, parsley, fennel herb)
Note: The dog likes the biscuits even without meat -
but a more intensive broth should be added!

.

Preparation:

First mix the flour, eggs, oil, pureed meat / fish / veal liver with 200-250 ml of the meat / vegetable stock until a smooth dough is formed.
If necessary, meat /
Vegetable broth can be added if the dough is too dry and cannot be processed further. The end result should be a homogeneous, smooth dough that does not stick and can be rolled out easily.
.

There are two ways to shape dog biscuits:

Either the dough is rolled out on a floured surface approx. 5mm thick and cut out with cookie molds, or sausages can be rolled from which are also approx. 5mm thick slices
be cut off.
.
Bake on a baking sheet lined with baking paper at about 150 ° for about 40 minutes. Occasionally open the oven door briefly so that the hot steam can escape.
Then it is best to leave it open overnight. Only pack afterwards (otherwise there is a risk of mold). The biscuits can then be kept in a biscuit tin for around two to three weeks.
Alternatively, you can freeze them.

.

Preparation:

.

.
Put all ingredients together in a mixing bowl and stir everything for a few minutes until a creamy dough is formed.
The dough must still drip slightly.
.

.

.
Hold the silicone baking mats / baking tins briefly under cold water before filling and fill them with batter while they are still wet.

.

 

 

 

You can now fill the molds with a pastry syringe.
If the dough is too runny, add 50-70g potato flour.

 

.

 

or

 

 

You use a dough scraper.
However, this requires some practice.

 

 

 

.

.
TIP:

I use a spatula for the baking mats for small cookies.
I use a pastry syringe for larger shapes.
.
The baking time depends on the size of the dog biscuits. I also bake the smaller cookies 150°-160° for about. 60-90 minutes. The larger cookies take longer (up to 120 minutes).
I use convection for baking Temperatures and baking times but depending on the oven vary. You should therefore always stay close to the stove and check it regularly to ensure that nothing burns.
.
Occasionally open the oven door briefly so that the hot steam can escape.
If there are different sizes, I check after 60 minutes about every 10-15 minutes which cookies are already baked through. I cut through a biscuit with a knife and there should no longer be a moist core visible.

 

.

.
Then it is best to leave it open overnight. Only pack afterwards (otherwise there is a risk of mold).
The biscuits can then be kept in a biscuit tin for around two to three weeks.
Alternatively, you can freeze them.

Note:

Volatile organic compounds can migrate from silicone baking mats / baking molds into the baked goods if they were not properly “outgassed” during production. The process, also referred to as “tempering” by those skilled in the art, usually takes place during production, but is very expensive. Therefore, some producers (according to ÖKO test) save this step.
If you want to be on the safe side, let the silicone baking mats / baking molds "outgas" before baking for the first time. That means, you take over the "tempering" yourself and put the silicone baking mats / baking tins in the oven for four hours at 200 °. You should also occasionally ventilate the molds in the oven.
Please do not buy cheap products!
I personally use baking mats from Collory S. Braun, silikomart, Le Dogue and HPiano
and am very satisfied with it.
.
The silicone baking mats / baking molds should have the following manufacturer's instructions.
- heat resistant from -30 ° C to + 230 ° C
- dishwasher safe
- 100% food safe silicone
- free of BPA (bisphenol A)
- odorless
