These homemade salon dog treats are an easy recipe to make and is greeted with wagging tails! They make great dog training treats too as well as a healthy snack.
My dogs go crazy for these treats and this recipe has found it onto the weekly baking rotation. The treats bake to a nice crunchy biscuit.
Making Salmon Dog Treats
A food processor is needed to make this salmon dog treats recipe. These helps the ingredients bind into a dough but you could always use a bowl and strong stirring arm. The mixture may not be as smooth but would still bake the same.
Canned Salmon Dog Food Recipe Ingredients
These baked salmon treats are made with a few store cupboard items:
- Canned salmon
- Rice Flour - other flours can be substituted
- Rolled Oats
- Fresh Parsley - helps as a breath freshener but it's a fighting battle with the salmon!
How to store baked dog treats
As these homemade dog treats have fish and eggs in them, I store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last a week. Although mine have not yet lasted that long with my four dogs!
Add a tin of tuna to the mixture for an extra fishy treat. More flour will need to be added to help the mixture bind.
The fresh parsley is optional but could be replaced with other dog friendly herbs as basil, oregano or rosemary.
Rice flour can be used with your preferred flour for dog treat baking. I've made a batch with coconut flour that worked but reduced the quantity of the flour.
The bone shape cookie cutter is more for me than the dogs! You could roll out the dough and cut it into squares before baking.
