Hi Bold Bakers!
When it comes to baking, no man, woman or dog will be left behind in my home. There’s no doubt that my dog Waffles gets the royal treatment here so it should be no surprise to you that I also make him Homemade Dog Biscuits.
I’m a stickler for using good ingredients to get great results and the same goes for baking my doggie treats. These Homemade Dog Biscuits are not only made of good quality ingredients but they all have benefits for your furry friends inside and out.
My dog Waffles is a 3 year old, Terrier Lhasa Apso mix. We rescued him 2 years ago from a great facility here in Los Angeles called NKLA. This organization rescues dogs from high kill areas and gives them a better chance of survival and a better chance at finding their forever home. After a lengthy adjustment period Waffles is now the furry glue that holds us together.
Just like when baking for family and friends there is something so satisfying about making Homemade Dog Biscuits for your pet. I feel immense pride when he snatches them from my hand and runs off to eat it on the carpet. The pride distracts me from the fact that he is eating my clean carpet, thanks Waffles.
I created this recipe for The Inspired Home website. It’s a place where I go to find out what new products are coming out along with tips and fantastic recipes. The Inspired Home’s mission is to inspire, inform and encourage you to make your house into a home, lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle and to create moments to celebrate and connect with your friends and family. The recipe and video for my Homemade Dog Biscuits can be found here.
I used my Fox Brands Cookie Cutter Set to make three different sizes of biscuits which not only look great but allow for portion control. You can buy the set of cookie cutters here.
These Homemade Dog Biscuits stay fresh in my Snapware Airtight Container for up to 2 weeks. They also freeze for up to 3 months. I like to refill my container every few days with biscuits form the freezer. Just leave out at room temperature for 5 minutes and then watch that tail wag.
You may have noticed my adorable Bear Hands Oven Mitts from Fred & Friends. To get a set Bear Hands click here. Waffles gets a little confused when I wear these but all is well when he gets his treats.
