Cooking for your Pooch – Part 1

So most of you don’t know I have a dog, he’s a three year old pointer x lab called Fudge. He very sensitive like a pointer, and chilled out like a lab, but odd being a rescue (scared of the dark/nightmares/aggressive towards labs/hates the rain). He also has terrible ear issues and has cost me £100’s at the vet. We have now come to the conclusion he has allergies as he was constantly licking his paws and base of his tail.

We decided this may be able to be controlled by diet, more specifically going hypoallergenic. Ah the wonders of expensive dog treats as suddenly I’m looking at the back of dog food packaging as well as my own food packaging. So I had a thought could I not make home made dog treats too? The easy answer is yes! so here is the first of a series, of easy to make, hypoallergenic dog treats.

Salmon and Parsley Bites

You will need:

2 tins of Salmon
1 tbsp Parsley
3 cups of buckwheat flour
1/2 cup water

This is so simple, mix together and knead until a dough forms (you may need to add more flour) Roll out onto a board and use a biscuit cutter to make into shapes (In the picture I used trees) Cook in the oven at 180c for 10 minutes if little bites or trained treats and for up to 25 minutes if making larger biscuits. leave to cool in the oven if possible.

These treats are freezable for up to three months.
