Really nice book on making dog treats from scratch. The graphics are a bit odd being people with various dog heads doing various chores. But if you're looking for a book with a nice variety of treat recipes this is a good one. About half of the recipes sound good enough to eat (the ones sans liver) for myself, like Pumpkin Drop Cookies and Apple Bran Muffins. And just about everything can easily be obtained at your local grocery with maybe a few ingredients needing to be found at the health food market. But you can make 85% of the recipes in the book just from 1 trip to the local grocery store if the ingredient isn't already sitting on your pantry shelf.

I enjoy baking treats for my dog, and I've done quite a bit of research to learn about what is safe (and what's not safe) for canines.

I barely started flipping through this book when I found recipes with ingredients that are toxic to dogs.

On page 54, the pumpkin pie biscuit recipe calls for nutmeg. Nutmeg can be hallucinogenic, and has been known to cause tremors, seizures and in some cases, death. It's particularly dangerous for smaller dogs. Avoiding nutmeg is the reason dog treat recipes that call for pumpkin include reminders to buy plain pumpkin, and not pumpkin pie mix. This recipe does note to buy plain pumpkin, but then adds the toxin back in!

Many of the recipes call for garlic or for garlic powder, including the recipe for oatmeal garlic cookies on page 79, which calls for 4 cloves. The ASPCA has this note about garlic and dogs: "All close members of the onion family (shallots, onions, garlic, scallions, etc.) contain compounds that can damage dogs’ red blood cells if ingested in sufficient quantities. A rule of thumb is “the stronger it is, the more toxic it is.” Garlic tends to be more toxic than onions, on an ounce-for-ounce basis. While it’s uncommon for dogs to eat enough raw onions and garlic to cause serious problems, exposure to concentrated forms of onion or garlic, such as dehydrated onions, onion soup mix or garlic powder, may put dogs at risk of toxicosis. The damage to the red blood cells caused by onions and garlic generally doesn’t become apparent until three to five days after a dog eats these vegetables. Affected dogs may seem weak or reluctant to move, or they may appear to tire easily after mild exercise. Their urine may be orange-tinged to dark red in color. These dogs should be examined by a veterinarian immediately.

What a great book! Not only is it full of easy to make recipes for dog treats, but it also includes additional, helpful information to improve your dog's health and well-being.

I've made a number of the treats and they are a big hit with my dog (and cats too -- don't tell!). I especially like the sections on grain-free treats, and recipes for dogs with special needs. The recipes are simple, and even stand up to an ingredient substitution or two if necessary. I can't imagine ever bringing home store-bought treats again!

This book is absolutely the best for making home made dog biscuits! I own 5 dog cookbooks and this by far is the best! Show your dog you love them by making them homemade biscuits! You know the ingredients are fresh and your dog will sit by the oven waiting for those hot biscuits to come out! (but let them cool off first no matter how they give you those dog eyes!)

This is one of the best cookbooks for dogs. The recipes are very easy to follow and I also like how there are instructions for storing. You don't find that in alot of other books like these. My dogs love everything I've made so far and will be making some goodie treats this Christmas for my friends with pets. I would recommend this book.

I just got a puppy and have been very concerned about what goes into his food and treats, so I decided that I want to try making my own (not to mention that this makes for great gifts to give). When I went to the store to find books on this type of thing, it is surprising that not many books are just about biscuits. I love my dog, but I find it a little ludacris that many doggie biscuit books actually have real meals for dogs in them (Labradore Lasagnia, Pup's Pizza, meatloaf, even Arroz con Pollo)... I'm truly serious! If you make meals for your dog, I appologize and do not mean to affend, but I barely have time to make my own meals, let alone something for my dog. Baking biscuits is one thing... but actual meals each night is another.

This book was right to the point and had everything I desired in it... buscuits, treats, and even cupcakes for when he does have a special celebration. The recipes are easy to follow and the ingredients seem easy to find. I think this book is a real treat and paired with the right cookie cutters makes a great gift (see also their set that comes with cutters). I got the book as opposed to the set because I also got "Make Your Own Healthy Doggie Biscuits" by Jonna Anne that came with 3 cutters (also an excellent book and set). I may also get the You Bake 'em Dog Biscuit mini set so that I have a smaller bone. I thought this book hit the target and I love it!

What a find! Tons of great recipes (even my husband enjoyed the Blue Cheese Walnut Training Treats) that are clear and easy to follow. The book is written with wit and intelligence and is filled with all sorts of related and valuable information. I love that Ms. Adams recognizes her readers would prefer to be enjoying time with their animals rather than fussing around with complicated recipes -- she offers up some terrific time-saving tips. And the inclusion of recipes targeted for animals with special dietary needs makes this the perfect gift book for anyone who loves their animals. To top it off, the book is beautifully designed and illustrated. This is a really terrific book and I'm so glad I found it!
