Today I’m going to share another one of my favorite easy dog treats recipes. If you have kids, making homemade dog treats is a great activity and you can certainly use this recipe if you are planning on baking with the kids. In fact, the last dog treat recipe that I shared with you guys was great for kids too. So sticking with this theme I’m sharing another one of my favorite easy biscuit recipes for kids to make.

Teaching your kids how to make homemade dog biscuits is a great opportunity to teach them several things. When you make doggie biscuits with your kids, you can teach them how to read a recipe, basic measurement skills, and more importantly nutrition. I also incorporate a little lesson on sharing and taking turns too. So if you think that teaching your kids how to make dog biscuits sounds like a fun afternoon activity, try the recipe for these homemade crunchy dog biscuits that your dog will love.
This particular recipe calls for shredded cheddar cheese, however you can always use powdered cheese too.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rye flour
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until dough forms. Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool and serve.
* TIP *– We had unexpected visitors while we were in the middle of making these dog biscuits so i wrapped the dog biscuit dough in cellophane and stored it in the refrigerator until we were ready to use it. This is actually a great idea if you need to make a bunch of dog treats for an event but you don’t want them to go bad before the event arrives. I used to spend days just making tons of dog biscuit dough when I had a big craft fair coming up. This was really helpful because making the dough itself is a bit time consuming. It’s a easier to just pull out a bunch a ready made dough and then spend a day or two baking it.
So as you can see in the video below this is an awesome and easy dog biscuit recipe for kids. My boys get such a kick out making homemade dog biscuits for our dog and he’s just thrilled when they make them!
