Recently I decided to start making my own dog treats for several reasons. First, I like to know what’s in my dog’s treats and two it’s cheaper. I collected all kinds of recipes and then I experimented, some of them my dogs liked and some not so much. I came across The Bow Wow Bisto dog treat maker on Amazon. It cost me about $35 and I have to say I love it.
The Bow Wow Bistro comes with a small book of recipes and a dog bone shaped cookie cutter. The cookie cutter is just the right size to fit into the Bow Wow Bistro, this treat maker will bake ten treats at a time and takes about 7 to 8 minutes.
Once a week I make enough treats to last my dogs all week. It doesn’t take long and I have the piece of mind to know that they are getting a great treat. You must keep in mind that the treats that you will make do not have any preservatives so they must be used within one to three weeks, depending on how long you bake them. The crunchier they are the longer they will last. Here’s a recipe that came with the Bow Wow Bistro.
Peanut Butter Paw Pops
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of organic (no salt) peanut butter
1 cup of hot water
Mix these ingredients together and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick, cut the dough out with the bone shaped cookie cutter that was provided and bake. You can bake from 4 to 8 minutes depending on how soft or crunchy you want them. Allow to cool before serving.
