I know a group of dogs of the same litter. A couple of weeks ago it was their birthdays, and I thought about exactly this. The kids thought about disgusting dog-food "cakes"...
These little-biccies went down well with all dogs offered (but then so did the stinky cakes...)

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

These are simple, you don't need much:

Liver (I bought 99p worth of ox-liver)
Flour (plain)
Oil (I used redundant olive-oil from a jar of anchovies)
Baking-powder


 
nice idea
HA! I've Never though of making treats for my dog! I might try them, it seems it would cost around £2, Do you know how long they would last? I supose the dogs won't mind if they go hard?

As biscuits, if well dried they'll last a long time (in a container).Dogs don't mind dry & crunchy at all.
I got two trays out of what I used, you'd have a large bag for less than £2 of materials.

Nice!, That certinaly Is much cheaper than store bought dog treats! I might have a try at this!

... If the occupants in my house agree.

Homogenising  the liver is horrible, but the rest is just fine.

L
Made it today.. I agree the liver is horrible! But my dog likes them. I have a picture of the biscuits below..

... I Wish I could go to the meet up In alfreton, It would of been great to see someone make your instructable and show you.

Thanks for the instructable!

Yea dogs do like them.

You're a bit far from Derbys' - I reckon 2 hrs each way, and I need to be back early to see Ska Wars.

L
Yep, I was in derby-shire two weeks ago as well! I had a DJ gig for my cousin..
I wonder if they are going to do a meet up 'down south'?

Oscar

You could get one organised?

L
hmmmm.. Yeah that would be quite good! I'll speak to gmjhowe and see what he says.

There is a local hall here with all the needed facilities.
I could purchase some kits from Rapid, I could bring food as well.

My age should not affect the meet up? I am 14, but its about seeing other authors and having fun, sharing knowledge, right? I'd be quite committed to organizing the meet up and I have no intention of 'messing about'.

Sounds like a good idea though!

Thanks

Oscar
Yeah! Well ive bought the liver, 75p in sainsburys, a little less than the co-op. Ive got the rest so when I get some time Ill start making!

Oscar
They look good....

The dogs like 'em, and if I liked liver and had added more flavour I might too.

L
Does that mean I'm a dog?
lemonie (author)  superMacaroni4 years ago

Nah, it's food either way.

I always get slightly cautious when somebody describes foodstuffs meant for animal consumption as "tasty"...
lemonie (author)  Kiteman4 years ago

Well, you have to try them...

No.

No, I don;'t.

Really, no, I don't.

If I was going to make my own snacks, I'd add salt and chlli, and maybe some herb or something.

You're not bringing snacks to Alfreton, are you?
lemonie (author)  Kiteman4 years ago
I had not thought about that until now...
