Recipes: Soft Dog Treats

Some of our best customers are senior dogs who have mobility problems or wouldn't be comfortable in a cage at a grooming shop. Here's a recipe for soft dog cookies for those K9s who prefer a softer treat.

Incidentally, we just discovered that Grigri loves crisp apples. He was jumping his heart out for them at the barn when we were working on his agility skills. Who knew?

3 (2 1/2 oz) jars of baby food, either beef or chicken.
1/4 cup dry milk powder
1/4 cup wheat germ or cream of wheat

Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Roll into small balls and place on well-greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until brown and cool on wire rack. Refrigerate or freeze.

Try a new treat with your pet this week to encourage his or her focus on you for training or just to be nice :).
