Spring has officially Sprung! The days are getting warmer, and the nights are getting longer! It’s time for the Pomeranian’s favorite Spring time dog treat! I receive many requests to share my homemade dog treat recipes, so today I will give you a great dog treat recipe and a bit of background as to why I make these delicious homemade dog treats!
At the Pommy Mommy home we love making homemade Pomeranian treats! My girls are always in the kitchen begging for a bite of whatever I’m cooking. I started making homemade dog treats for the girls almost as soon as I rescued them.
My Pomeranian’s were unable to eat the treats that I would buy them at the dog boutique because they were all so large in size. Not only do the girls have small mouths, they have very few teeth!
Before the girls came to live at the Pommy Mommy home, they did not eat dog food, or have their teeth brushed. Therefore all three had to have teeth pulled because of the abuse they received in the past with their previous owners.
Sooo… I decided to combine my passions in life. Baking, Cooking and Pomeranian’s! I started out with a basic dog treat recipe and made them into smaller sizes so the Pomeranian’s could eat and enjoy them! I would add things they liked (for example chicken! They all three go crazy over chicken!) And take out the things they didn’t like. (Like Salmon, thankfully they didn’t care for it in a dog treat, because the whole house smelled all afternoon!)
I experiment with combining different ingreadents until I perfected the recipe to my Pomeranians, and all the neighborhood dogs, liking. Yes, that’s right, word traveled fast in my neighborhood. Dog owners quickly found out about my homemade dog treats and would always volunteer their dogs as “taste testers” and I always took them up on their offer!
~As Promised, a Pomeranian Dog Treat Recipe.~
~Perfect for Spring~
1 Cup Oat Flour
1 Cup Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Chicken Broth (UNSALTED)
1/2 Cup Oat Bran
4 TBS. Applesauce (UNSWEETENED)
1 Cup. Hulled Sunflower Seeds (UNASALTED)
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients together and mix until dough forms. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4″ thickness. Use a small cookie cutter or a pizza cutter to cut into small bite size treats. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. They are not going to spread out like cookies so you can place them close together.
Bake 20-25 minutes. Let cook completely on wire rack in oven. This is what makes them hard. Store the treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
