Dog Cookie Recipes – How to Make Dog Treats

Welcome to Kraken Corgi! We offer dog care tips, dog training advice, and more!

Your dog doesn’t have to be a Corgi to love dog cookie recipes. My dog Bella happens to LOVE hand made dog treats from specialty shops but these dog cookies are about $1.50 each, so I decided to learn how to make dog treats and save myself some money.  The following dog cookie recipes both have peanut butter or peanuts in the recipes, which dogs seem to love.

Dog Cookie Recipes – How to Make Dog Treats

Dog Cookie RecipesThis first recipe was a big hit with my Corgi. What I liked about the dog cookie recipe is how easy it was to make and I already had all the ingredients on hand. When making these cookies, I didn’t even bother to make them look nice and Bella didn’t seem to mind at all.

Peanut Butter Dog Cookie Recipes

  • 1 1/8 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/8 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Peanut Butter Dog Cookie Recipe Directions:

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium bowl combine the whole wheat flour and the unbleached flour and set aside.
  3. In another medium sized bowl combing the water, peanut butter and the vegetable bowl.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture. The mixture will be a big dough ball. At this point you will have to get your hands dirty and kneed the last bit of flour into the dough.
  5. Let the dough ball rest for 10 minutes.
  6. On a sheet of waxed paper, roll out the peanut butter dog cookie dough until its about 1/4 of an inch thick. Cut the dough into whatever shape you want. You can use cookie cutters or just free hand it with a butter knife. Any left over dough scraps can be re-rolled to make even more cookies.
  7. Transfer the dog cookies to an un-greased cookie sheet and score the tops of the cookies with a fork, this will allow steam to escape while the cookies are cooking.
  8. Bake cookies for 25 – 35 minutes, turning a few times or as needed. When done cookies should feel hard. Ovens vary and you may need to cook the dog cookies longer or for less time.
  9. Store cooled cookies in an air tight container.

This next recipe is one of my favorite dog cookie recipes. I like this recipe because it’s a drop dog cookie recipe, which means you won’t have to roll out the dough.
