Whether you want to reward them for good behavior or simply show them how much you care, making homemade dog treats is a great way to surprise your pup with something special. Ahead, we’re showing you how to create tasty treats at home for your canine companion.
1 ½ cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
Combine flour, wheat germ, brewer’s yeast, and salt in a large bowl.
Place canola oil in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to oil in 3 additions, alternating with 1 cup stock; mix until combined.
Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes (dough will be sticky).
Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out rounds using a 2-inch fluted cutter.
Transfer to baking sheets. Make an indentation toward the bottom of 1 circle using your thumb, then press dough to make an arch of 4 small circles on top of the thumbprint using the tip of your pinky.
Freeze for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes, rotating sheets and lightly brushing with remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock halfway through. Turn oven off, and let stand in oven for 40 minutes.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
