My Henry loves treats. I'd like to make some. Does any one have a good healthy recipe for home made dog treats??
I would be interested to have some too!
I'm not sure how healthy they are but Puff's favorite (and that of many other dogs) is coin size slices of hot dog, sprinkled lightly with garlic powder, and then nuked enough in the microwave to set the GP and cook them.
As for healthy treats, I used to dehydrate banana slices and apple slices for Puff. (She also loves fresh banana -- I can bite off a small piece with my teeth and hand it to her).
Also, she loves "Animal Crackers" (a cookie) which has very little kcals.

I found a website that has alot of recipes. I have posted the link below.
I have a recipe for salmon crackers that my dogs love. They will do anything for a salmon cracker.
One large can salmon (14.75 oz can)
1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed (I use the unsalted ones)
Mix crushed crackers with salmon and eggs. Spread into thin layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes at 350. Remove, lower temp to 200, cut into small squares with pizza cutter. Bake additional 2 hours until fairly dry.

And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

I buy my own liver or beef heart (presliced is easiest), boil it w/ some chopped garlic cloves, and when it's done, scoop it out, put it on a cookie tray and in the oven at ~200F til dry. Cut as small as you want, and toss into a freezer bag. I just refill my bait bag as needed from the freezer.
I add parsley (from the garden, also frozen in large quantities!), or a variety of frozen veggies like squash, greens, etc. into the broth and use as an extra "treat" over their food at night.

There's some really good recipies here: http://www.all-natural-dog-treat.com/. My Conformation instructor has used several off of this site and the dogs really like them.

Thanks for all the ideas. Think I will try some of these this weekend.
There is a dog cookbook out by Three Dog Bakery. We make some biscuits out of there. While I don't want corn, wheat or soy in my dogs' dog food, I don't mind putting it in homemade biscuits that I bake since I get the ingredients from the local Whole Foods.
