And you can split them with the pooch! One for you, one for me kind of thing. Looks really tasty Joe. My old gal gets treats from the garden, peas being the favorite. Radishes, carrots, broccoli, beans… All are presented as ‘special treats’ when she is a good girl. Heck, she gets them all the time as she is always good.

There's no reason you couldn't but they are VERY hard. I'm guessing it helps clean their teeth.

I had a beagle once that would take his nose and sort out the green beans from the leftovers and eat everything else!

I eat Milk Bone treats, just to test them.

If they're crunchy and dry, they're OK for the dog. If soft, they're no good or need drying.

I make biscuits for my dog out of spent grains from homebrewing. I brew only around 4-5 times a year so they run out easy. I bring those for her walks or for tricks. For anything else she likes raw vegetables especially carrots, and it's $1 for a whole bag. A bag normally lasts 2 weeks.

Since these have milk and butter, do they need to be refrigerated?

And how long did it take you to carve out those little bone shapes :D

With 7 dogs, they only lasted about 2 weeks so I really don't know. The recipe didn't say.

Shapes?
Many hours of tedious labor. :D

My mother inlaw makes a dog treat with a base of lard and flour. I was dating my wife at the time and helped myself to the nice fresh batch of cookies in the cupboard. I found out after I told her how good her cookies were that I was informed they were for the dog.....
