Dog Cookie Kit

One of our new creations. A dog cookie kit. We only want the best for our four legged family members so why not make him a batch of cookies.

The cookie kits come with a jar of dried peppermint leaves, a cookie cutter and recipe card. We also sell tin cookie cutters that are so cute and will last a lifetime.

The fresh flavor of mint helps to freshen your pet’s breath and Mint can also be soothing to the stomach and nervous system and help alleviate nausea.

We also include new recipes for your cats and dogs in our newsletter which at this time is published quarterly.
Here is a recipe to get you started.

Dog Treat Cautions
If your dog has any known food allergies or is on a restricted diet, consult its veterinarian before serving these recipes. A good rule of thumb is that treats should account for no more than 10% of a dog’s diet.
Sudden changes in diet can cause digestive upsets. Be sure to introduce new foods slowly.

Basic recipe
Makes about 2 dozen biscuits
1¾ cup whole wheat flour
1¼ cup oatmeal
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup water
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together, then pour in oil and water.
2. Mix well until dough is firm. Roll dough out on a floured board and cut into shapes.
3. Grease a cookie sheet. Use a spatula to carefully transfer biscuits to cookie sheet. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown.
4. Cool. Store leftovers in an airtight container in a cool place or freeze.
Cheese and Herb: Add 1¼ cups grated cheese and 1 teaspoon rosemary or thyme.
