National spoil your dog day

Actually I think its national spoil your dog day every day in our house... but August 10th is the day we just have to spoil them even more!

Whether it's a Boston terrier from Boston or a Collie in Cornwall, today is the day to give them extra love and maybe a new toy.


Lily our frenchie is off on a day out to explore her favourite place with the possibility of a new toy... if she is good haha!


She looks cute, but don't let that fool you.

She's a noisy bossy little girl, but we love her!



 

Go the extra mile and bark.. sorry bake up a storm and make some dog friendly treats at home.


  • For the biscuits

  • 300g Plain wholemeal flour (substitute for oats if your dog is sensitive to wheat)

  • 1 tsp Salt

  • 1 Egg(s) (free range)

  • 1 Stock (beef, chicken or fish stock cube. customise to your dog's taste)

  • 150ml Water (hot)


  • For the Peanut Butter frosting

  • 120g Smooth peanut butter

  • 2.5 tsp Plain flour

  • 1 tbsp Water

Step 1: Preheat oven to 170 °C (150 °C for Fan Assisted Oven)


Step 2: Dissolve the stock cube of your choice in hot water.


Step 3: Add remaining ingredients


Step 4: Knead dough until it forms a ball (approximately 3 minutes)


Step 5: Roll dough until 1 cm thick.


Step 6: Cut into slices or bone shapes (you can purchase a bone shaped cookie cutter to make shapes with)


Step 7: Place dough pieces on baking paper


Step 8: Bake for 20 -25 minutes (or until golden brown)


Step 9: To make the optional Peanut Butter frosting, warm up the Peanut Butter in the microwave until it is smooth and easy to stir.


Step 10: Add the water to the Peanut Butter and mix together before adding in the flour and stirring well.


Step 11: Spread over the dog biscuits and allow to set. If the mixture hardens before you have finished you can always warm again in the microwave.


These are a brilliant no additive treat for dogs, and in an airtight container should last for up to 3 weeks.





 

You can always say those magic words... " Wanna go for a walk" Or "Walkie's" and take them on an extra walk (be careful it is meant to be a nice warm day so check before you go out)

Go to a park or even take them on an adventure, just like Lily is going on!


There are some gorgeous walks around the Peak District (Bakewell is very dog friendly)



Whatever you end up doing, have fun and stay safe!
