We are a nation of dog lovers, especially here at 1 Dog where we are passionate about our Romanian rescues, and what better way to give your dog a treat than to bake them their very own dog biscuits. If you have never tried before they are straightforward to make, and you can always encourage any children to help, we all know how children love to help in the kitchen.
When our dogs are adopted, we always include a dog biscuit recipe in their adoption pack. The recipe is from one of our very own volunteers, Pippa Scott, and is tried and tested not only by her own dogs, but also by many more of our adopted Romanian rescue dogs, my own two dogs included.
Here are the ingredients :
450G PORRIDGE OATS
600G STRONG BROWN FLOUR
100-150 ML RAPESEED OIL OR SUNFLOWER OIL
BETWEEN 250-350G SMOOTH BRUSSELS PATE (DEPENDS HOW TASTY YOU WANT THEM)
I use supermarket own-brand products.
Put all the wet ingredients into a hand blender or mixer and really blitz them together, so the oil is totally combined. If this isn’t done, then the mixture can be very greasy and unusable!
Add it to the dry ingredients and mix them together to make them into a dough, you will need to knead it for about 5 minutes. If it doesn’t all come together, add a little water to bind it.
Once it is all mixed in, roll out to about 1/3 inch thickness and cut into whatever shape you want.
Cook in the oven at 200 for about 15/20 mins, until brown and hard to touch on outside. Better to be slightly underdone than overdone!
You can always cut down the amounts. This amount does Pippa’s five dogs and lasts for about two weeks, for walking treats. They will keep fresh in a Tupperware box easily for three weeks.
These are tried and tested, by many a Romanian street dog.
You could always bake extra for your friends who have dogs and give them as presents.
