Ingredients in this book are poisonous to dogs - raisins and garlic. I do not understand why so many 'cookbooks' for dogs insist on putting these ingredients and others that are harmful into their recipes. Over the years I have purchased dozens of these types of cookbooks to get them off the shelves of used book stores and thrift shops so dog owners who are not informed don't end up hurting or killing their beloved pets. Don't editors even bother checking what they are publishing? Many of the recipes included in this book look GREAT, and I will try them, however I know to leave the bad items out and make what changes are needed so dogs are not harmed - how many others who buy a book like this will trust that the authors/editors know what they are publishing and proceed without doing any further research. If this book and others like it ever leave my possession (which I doubt unless it is the waste bin) I make sure all poisonous ingredients are noted in the recipes in black ink marker.
My dog is a fussy eater, and he loves all the treats. They are easy to make and they don't take long. His current favorite is the liver and garlic treats, and the recipe makes a lot of them. I put a bag in the fridge and freeze a bag and as I continue to use them I move them from freezer to fridge. He likes those treats frozen also. Most of the ingredients are easy to find, and the recipes are not difficult to make by any means. I already had a copy of this book, and I recently bought this book for a friend for Christmas. She's a dog lover and she was absolutely thrilled!
I like these recipes because I can get creative and not wreck them.I've subbed a variety of flours and added meat into the cheesy biscuits and chicken into the turkey recipes, subbed some broth for water etc.I use the recipes as a guideline and just like cooking for myself sub bananas, apple sauce and such for wet ingredients sometimes to change up flavor and nutritional value.Best investment I've made in a long time in the kitchen!
LOVE this cookbook! Recently, I've been getting more interested in making sure my furbabies have treats that are good for them. For me, that means homemade - none of those not sure where they came from items any more! These recipes are all easy to make, and use easy to find ingredients. My crew of three dalmatians gives this a big paws up!
Bought this book after looking at it for several months at the pet store! What a great investment...my two girls love every recipe that I've tried and I'm still working my way through the book. The favorites are the biscotti recipes; work so well that the vet thought I was a fanatic about brushing their teeth. I've made notes on each of the recipes as to adaptations to the recipe (doesn't everyone change a recipe, anyway?) I've recommended this book to every dog-owner that I know and have shared samples to get them hooked as well. Wish I had bought it sooner. So much more fulfilling to know what's going into their treats as well as satisfying my urge to bake.
Meh. Found online resources more useful. Resold the book after flipping through it since nothing jumped out at me. Pictures/design of book could have been better as well but that just might be the graphic designer in me being picky.Meh. Meh. Meh.Just google whatever you need and it'll probably be better or the same as what's in this book.
I highly recommend this book to every dog owner. I have made a few recipes and my dog Millie loves them. I have even given some away to co-workers who have dogs. One of them has a dog that will not eat dog treats. She gave him one of the peanut butter carob cookies I baked and he ate them. There are many different types of yummy treats. I have purchased other dog treat cookbooks and this one is by far the best and my favorite!
Okay so let me start by saying, this book had ME drooling!!! Over 100 recipies I ordered two and they came in a nice little box two or three days early! The price was amazing and I am looking forward to many rainy days bakeing with my dog!There are recipies for muffins, cookies, bars, drop cookies, BIRTDAY CAKES, frozen treats and more!!! Some of these treats such as the SHERBET recipients are sure to keep my dog cool on a hot day...and make me a little jealous...
