    i havent purchased dog treats in years...since the first round of deaths by treats from china....i use nothing but american products .....i use king arthurs whole wheat flour..

    i make my own....its so easy....

    1/2 cup of powdered milk
    3/4 cup of water
    1 egg
    3 cups of whole wheat flour....
    5 tablespoons of butter

    you got your basic milk bone recipe....i just roll it out to 1/2 inch thick and bake at 325 for 55 minutes

    they have no preservatives so you have to put them in the freezer...to keep

    i add other things to the basic recipe
    ...

    add honey, peanut butter or carob or hell go for the smack daddy and add all three

    here is a link with a ton of recipes for the muttos....

    i always add at least peanut butter...all natural chunky....

    you can get all the stuff but the carob at walmart

    the powdered milk is the expense.....and make sure it is all made in america

    I buy as little as possible from Wal*Mart.

    I'm gonna try to make some - why whole wheat flour instead of unbleached all-purpose? Is that just a choice, or should the regular flour be avoided by canines?

    Also, how much marijuana should I add? ;)

    Far out!

    I never give my dogs commercial dog treats, they're more expensive than giving them flipping steak and you don't know what they have in them.

    Plus both dogs are allergic so although I do feed cheap food (I just can't afford the good allergenic stuff in the quantities I need it...it costs $200 a month and we still have flareups, so the added vet of $200 every two months for meds and vet visit..I can't do it) I don't feed a lot of it (Klaus probably 3 cups a day, given 3 x a day, 1 cup at a time) and I supplement it with lots of meat and occasional veggies (no corn but I do give them green beans now and then) from our table. It seems to work out pretty good that way.

    That's the regime now. We change it as we need to.

    They seem to do better if I keep changing foods...I'll find a food and they'll be good with it for a while, then I have to switch it out for something else.

    Anyway, they both react to glutens pretty severely so wheat/flour is always an issue but in small amounts they're okay. And klaus LOVES peanut butter. He will get the peanut butter jar off the shelf, get the lid off, and eat it out of the jar. I just had a whole jar wrecked because he got out what he could with his tongue, then got a FOOT in there and left big old claw holes through the rest in the bottom, yuck, it was all mushed with his tongue then two big holes from his claws...we didn't try to save that one.

    But I would have put it in treats if I'd had the recipe!
