MASCOT LOVES... Homemade Dog Treats

May 18, 2017



Here at Mascot HQ, we love food!  Well, Matt and I do.  Charlie our Ragdoll cat - not so much.  Having lived with dogs my whole life who would devour anything and everything within tongue's reach (throw back to the time Louis my beloved Dalmatian ate a whole raw meat pie off the baking tray), it was pretty soul destroying to get used to Charlie's dissatisfaction with literally everything we offered him.  The most expensive organic food was met with a turned up nose.  Grain free - turned up nose.  Handmade treats - yeah, nah.  Raw meat pet snacks from our favourite butchery - wouldn't have a bar of it.  It's like the more effort I went to to spoil him, the less he wanted it.

And then the fateful day came.  The day we ran out of the good quality biscuits that he would actually tolerate.  In a moment of panic while Charlie meowed the house down at dinner time, I rushed to the nearest Four Square and purchased a sachet of mainstream jelly meat.  WHYYY.

From there on in, it has been a battle of wills between my patience and Charlie's growling little stomach.  He would swipe at my legs, try to trip me on the stairs, push things off tables and whine at me non stop until I fed him the cheap crap.  And I hate to say it, but I've given in.  I am so ashamed of his diet that I can't even make eye contact when I tell the vet.  Ahh, cats.

So getting back to the main point of my blog, I must apologise to the Mascot cat gang out there as for this post I have focused on dogs, only because I've never bothered to try homemade treats with Charlie.  Do I need to remind you that the more effort I put in, the less he cares?  And believe me, baking is a big deal for Rach.

Below I have curated my favourite recipes for homemade doggo goodies, I have tried variations of these in the past and they have gone down a treat (pun completely intended), but get in touch and let me know how you get on with them too.  And also remember - pics or it didn't happen.
