Introduction: Homemade Dog Treats to Beat Bad Breath
So, did you just bring home a new puppy and realize puppy breath isnt really as sweet as people say? Or did your all grown up puppy think eating that dead thing, dirty diaper, or litter box treat was a great idea. Well now you can make then a yummy little snack that will kick that bad breath right out the door. No longer be afraid of those wonderful puppy kisses.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
You will Need:
Whole wheat flour
Fresh Mint or pure mint extract
Dont forget the sweet little doggie with dumpster breath.
Step 2: Recipe
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley ( 1 whole cup if using mint extract instead of leaves)
1/2 cup finely chopped mint or 1/4 tsp of extract
1/3 cup milk
3 tbsp vegetable oil
Mix Ingredients together in large mixing bowl. (I used a food processor thing to make the parsley really fine) Mix together until it makes a thick dough. Dough may look flakey, if it wont hold together gradually add small amounts of water until it hold into a ball when pressed with hands. Roll out onto a floured board or counter top. The thinner its rolled the more crispy the treats will be and the more you will be able to get from one batch. Choose a cookie cutter, i used mini cookie cutter from a Noah's ark set i got for my baby shower (only the bear) Or you cal roll into a small ball and press flat with your hands.
Preheat oven to 350 and lay your treats onto an un-greased baking sheet. I put tin foil on top of mine for easy clean up. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. (golden brown may be hard to detect because of the brown color of the dough so nay attention)
Some thicker treats may retain a springy feel but thats ok.
Step 3: Treat Time!!
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Place treats Into container and search out your eager puppies and let them decide. Treats wont take all the smell away with just one treat. But with only one there is marked improvement. Sorry for the low quality Images. I had to use my cellphone because my three year old wanted to take pictures of the potty.... and i think you can all guess how that ended up.
