I love to cook for my dog - I like to know exactly what's in his
treats.
I recently made him tomato paste-and-flour biscuits. Sounds gross to me, but he loves them!

I make gluten free gourmet dog treats to sell and love doing it but I will admit it is alot of work. But I have clients that say I should call my treats "doggie crack" because their pets love them so much. My clients like them because there isn't anything in them that they can't eat themselves. They are healthier for the dog than the commercial ones because they don't have any preservatives in them. My cookies are also soft so that the dogs can actually taste them. Plus alot of my clients have older dogs that can't eat the rock hard ones that you sometimes get at the stores. I loved this article and I think more and more people are cooking for their pets. I also have a pet sitting business so we see first hand what our clients are feeding their pets and we are definitely seeing more home cooked meals for our clients dogs. I think it will continue to be more common place as time goes on. We are already seeing changes in the pet food industry to compliment this trend.

@Sam -- Oops, I guess this isn't a vegan recipe! I think it's that I don't mind having honey in the house, but I do kind of mind having raw chicken or beef in the house.

@Craig -- I had asked the author of the book specifically for a vegan recipe since I don't eat dairy or poultry, and what little beef I do eat is made at a restaurant, not in my kitchen, that's for sure! So, that's why you see this vegan recipe. There are a lot of recipes in the book with varied ingredients.

Sort of strange that you mention "Those recipes sound a lot like the things we feed our dogs today – oatmeal, barley, vegetables, as well as animal protein. They had discovered that dogs should be fed a mixed and varied diet."; but, then you offer up a vegan recipe with wheat in it. Seems more like a recipe to appease someone's social dietary beliefs rather than the health of their dog. Not to mention the irony of the pop-up ad for Natural Balance Grain-Free food right next to said recipe.

I don't cook for my dog, but would be willing to make treats once in a while. Thanks for the recipe :)

I, too, hate cooking. But on occasion, I will make dog treats. This recipe looks pretty easy. I'll have to try it out.

I cook better meals for my dogs than I do for myself! LOL! I've been doing it for over 10 years. It's fun, easy and my dogs are thriving. Plus I trust my ingredients and skills more than the corporate for-profit pet food industry.
