I thought since my dog id in a lot of pain right now from getting hit by a car the other day I would do something nice for her. I made her some cheesy garlic dog biscuits. She loves them. So do the other dogs. Heck, so does my 9 month old daughter. LOL Have you ever made treats for your dog or do you give them the store bought ones?

Its certainly great to treat your dog once in a while with a homemade biscuits but I read one discussion here in mylot that garlic is bad for the dogs.

Actually garlic helps keeps fleas off of your dog, so it is actually good. That is why you will find garlic in a lot of the homemade dog treats recipes.

Yes, garlic helps to keep away unwanted friends on your dog. But it must be in moderation. Garlic and onion contain amounts of thiosulphate which can cause haemolytic anaemia in dogs. However, the amount in garlic is much less than the amount in onion and a lot of garlic would have to be consumed in order to cause illness in dogs.

Yes Ihave made many different homemade treats for our dogs. I have made bonbons, donuts, garlic biscuits, carob cookies and others. Our dogs love them. I also take them to the grooming shop where I work for the other dogs. They are a hit everytime. I also make them as gifts for friends with dogs. I have even been asked if I'd be interested in making and selling them.

I think it would be a cool idea to sell them. They are really easy to make and there are lots of people who would like dog treats made with natural ingredients without all the preservatives.
