Guests at Beachscape and Tides will know that this year, I started leaving a welcome pack of doggie biscuits. They’ve gone down very well and many guests buy some more from Nero’s Kitchen before going home.
Jan of Nero’s makes all the biscuits herself from natural ingredients; she even makes Christmas stockings as a special treat for your furry friend! All the profits are donated to various animal rescues, including Elpida Shelter of Hope, Desperate Greekies Greek Dog Rescue, then closer to home F.A.I.T.H Animal Rescue and Hillside Dog Rescue, two Norfolk based charities.
Now you may not be visiting Norfolk soon, but are thinking what a nice treat it would be for your dog? Maybe even get the kids involved with some baking on a rainy day? So if you’d like to make your own dog biscuits, here’s a recipe I found on the Guide Dogs site:
Homemade Dog Biscuits Recipe
- 350 grams whole wheat flour (substitute regular flour or oats if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp Beef or chicken bouillon or stock
- ½ cup hot water
- Oats, shredded cheese, bacon bits, shredded chicken
- Preheat your oven to 200°c.
- Dissolve your bouillon or stock into the hot water.
- Add in the remaining ingredients, including any optional extras, and mix until a dough is formed.
- Knead dough until it forms a ball. (approximately 3 minutes)
- Roll out the dough evenly, until ½ inch thick.
- Cut into slices, or shape as you like! (Please bear in mind, for larger shapes you will need to adjust cooking times accordingly)
- Place dough pieces on lightly greased baking tray.
- Cook in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes.
