My Patterdale Terrier loves these. I'm not too keen on giving him refined sugar so I used about a 1/2 tablespoon of pure honey instead. I added 3 or 4 tablespoons of dried parsley to half the dough in an attempt to curb some of his puppy breath. It didn't seem to work (fresh parsley might be more effective) but he really likes the flavor of those too. Thanks!:) Read More

This recipe is great and very easy. Instead of plain cornmeal I used a jiffy mix that I had a on hand. My mixture was a little moist so I needed to add additional flour. Other than these few small changes this recipe is fantastic as is. My german shepherd loves them! Read More

Since we were already going to be making holiday cookies for family and friends we decided to try out a recipe for our four legged family members. If our puppy's reaction is any indication the other dogs will be truly happy this Christmas! Read More

Thanks for this great recipe! My dog is so finicky that in the 7 years I've had her I could not find any store-bought dog biscuits that she would eat. I decided to try making my own and she LOVES them! It makes me feel so happy to finally have a healthy treat for her! Read More

Lance my pooch loved these. I made them as Christmas gifts for everyone I know that owns a dog. They do not as others have said have a large shelf life. The were easy to make and seemed to be liked by the furry friends. I didn't try them myself:-) Read More

I am making these right now and my dog has been at my feet since I started. She loves the dough so far and I know she is going to love the finished product. I cut the pieces into smaller squares with a pizza cutter because I don't have a dog-bone cookie cutter yet. I am glad I came across the recipe because I had all of the ingredients on-hand and am sick of buying over-priced treats at the store. I also love the idea you gave of giving these as a gift with a cookie cutter!!! Read More

We did not have Chicken bouillon so we used the powder from a chicken gravy mix. We also substituted at tsp of honey for the tsp of sugar. Read More

I didn't have corn meal but I had light and flufy corn bread - I used 1 1/2 cups cornbread pereed in the blender and 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour. I didn't have cheddar but I had a mexican mix of cheese which included cheddar and asiago and monterey jack. I used more than a cup of cheese -about 1 1/2 cups. My litlte Shih Tzu Cuddles liked the batter and couldn't wait til these treats were done. My Amazon parrot also likes them. I tasted them. They taste almost like a cheese straw. I'll never buy treats made in China again. Thank you so much for this recipe. Read More
