Valentine Dog Treat

Valentines is just around the corner. Many people enjoy giving “treats” for valentines day. However, your pooch will get sick if you feed her candy, chocolate, and pretty much any other treat we humans like to give our valentines, so I have included a recipe so you can give your dog a Valentines day treat and not have to worry about making her sick. The following recipe comes from the Modern Dog magazine.

Tender Tummy Biscuits

1 cup brewed chamomile tea
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup cooked white rice
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 cup chicken, skinned, boiled, and chopped to 1/2-inch cubes
Preheat oven to 375°F.

  • Brew a cup of chamomile tea, and allow it to cool to room temperature. (It’s never a good idea to use hot liquids when mixing dough.)
  • Place the flours, rice, and parsley in a large bowl, using your hands or a wire whisk to gently mix the dry ingredients.
  • Add the cottage cheese and brewed tea to the dry ingredients, stirring with a sturdy spoon until the dough becomes pliable. Add the diced chicken cubes and stir until they are evenly mixed into the dough, taking care not to over mix.
  • Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out or pat down to a thickness of 1/2 inch. Using a pizza cutter, make horizontal and vertical slices through the dough to form cube shapes. The size of the cubes will be determined by the size of your dog’s jaw.
  • Place the biscuits on a baking sheet or pan covered with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Of course if you’re like me and do not know the first thing about cooking; you can always buy your dog a special valentines day treat. I recommend Stella & Chewy’s Carnivore Kisses.
