  1. The garlic powder needs to be removed from this recipe as garlic is toxic to dogs and can cause liver and kidney failure.
  2. I liked that the recipe made lots and biscuits were nice and crunchy. Dogs loved them. I eliminated the salt and garlic powder as well as substituted chicken broth for the tomato juice.
  3. Best dog biscuits my dogs loved them. I split the dough in half I added peanut butter to one half and fresh grated Parmesan cheese to the other half. Your dog will love them.
  4. I made these for my dog after buying a store brand of biscuits that produced "unfortunate" (phew!)side effects.

  6. This recipe makes a HUGE amount of doggie biscuits! I made some this Christmas for my co-workers, family and friends' dogs and saw one being devoured by my co-worker's new black Lab pup.

  7. This was a really good recipe. I added a half cup of grated parmesan cheese so it had more smell and taste and he liked them alot. They were pretty tasty for people too!
  8. These taste really good. My dog likes them too. Not stale like those ones that come in a box.
  9. Dogs love these! Note- I found the dough very difficult to mix. Use your breadmachine's dough cycle!
