Dog Cookies


Baylor loves treats. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have learned any tricks or basic commands if not for his love of a reward – preferably a cookie reward. Sure you can buy dog treats, but it’s much more fun to make your own. Baylor likes to sit in the kitchen waiting for any cookie dough to fall on the floor and devour as many hot-from-the-oven cookies as he can.


2½ Cups whole wheat flour
½ Cup powdered milk
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
⅓ Cup shortening
1 egg
1 Tbsp beef bouillon

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Dissolve the bouillon into ½ Cup hot water. Mix this water with the shortening, sugar and salt. Add the powdered milk and egg. Then add enough flour until a soft dough forms.

Roll out and cut with cookie cutters. *Quick Tip* To save time on this step you can roll the dough directly onto the cookie sheet and then just cut into squares with a pizza cutter. Baylor says he equally enjoys fancy shapes and quick squares.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.


Yummy and cute! If you don’t have pup of your own, these make cute gifts for friends and family with dogs.
