Homemade Peanut Butter Whole Wheat Dog Biscuits
We were wondering how our dog, Cassie would take our recent move. We were her third home in a year and then she spent almost a month at her “mom and dad’s” house while we were waiting to close on our new home (and living in my sister-in-law’s basement).
She has settled into our new home amazingly well. It’s like she had the attitude, well this is where my people are so I am good. My sister-in-law said that none of their dogs would have been as relaxed. Cassie didn’t miss a beat.
Her dad, Teddy, is staying with us for three weeks now. We love him too and were happy to dog-sit. He’s a wonderful dog and their personalities are so similar, it makes them a joy to watch. They’re a formidable pair, both tall and black with bright eyes and a playful spirit. During the day, they don’t stop running and playing in our backyard. Whether it’s chasing the ball or each other or exploring what’s under hedges and bushes, every day their hair is covered in dust and dirt and leaves and whatever else they’ve picked up.
My tub has been getting a real workout! With two dirty dogs and then add in the amount of hair that I lose a day…it drives Mike crazy how I clog the tub and sinks! I caught him commiserating with his brother-in-law about it (ha!) as apparently they have the same issue with my niece’s long hair. Basically, at both our houses, Liquid-Plumr is a staple.
Mike’s advice? Use Liquid-Plumr Full Clog Destroyer once a month to keep the drains clear and free of pet grime and hair. Regular maintenance is the best TLC, but Liquid-Plumr cuts right through standing water to keep drains doing what they’re supposed to do and it keeps them smelling fresh. Forget the smell of wet dog in the drain syndrome!
Liquid-Plumr products (there are eight) are safe for all septic systems and pipe types. Just be sure pets are completely out of the tub and away from the product at all times. If your dog is like mine it will want to hang out with you even when you’re cleaning the tub!
Having two dogs has been great for our family. Cassie gets a playmate and we love the dynamic. We have come to realize that two dogs don’t equal twice the work and now we’ve been thinking about getting a second dog (no one mention this to my parents as they will think I am nuts!).
I’ve been working on getting the dogs to stop barking at the neighbor’s dog, Max, through our front window. The way the couch is situated in our living room, they lay across it and stalk him. By using homemade peanut butter treats and praise as rewards, they’ve almost stopped.
The recipe is one that I got from our breeder and it’s actually quite easy.
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 cups of whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Combine ingredients in mixer on low until well blended
- Put dough between two sheets parchment paper
- Roll to approximately 1/4 inch in thickness
- Use cookie cutter (or glass) to cut out biscuits
- Bake for approx 17 minutes
- Will yield 40 medium-sized biscuits
