That's a good idea! In the past, I've made Millie little peanut butter balls. Literally just peanut butter rolled in balls and put in the fridge, she loved them! Also have made cheesey biscuits. Don't remember the exact recipe but I think it was milk and cheese cooked in Christmas shapes!
This has been a big topic on grooming forums recently. Some people have 200+ clients so can't spend much! Someone made 'gravy bone wreaths' by weaving ribbon around gravy bones to make an O shape. Looked brill but obviously not te best treats Someone also made fridge magnets of the dogs name
Making treats is a nice idea and packaging them nicely, you'd just have to be careful that no dogs have allergies to ingredients.
I've done nothing this year for my grooming clients besides making christmas bows for on their collars because I'm skint
Think I will go with the treats idea I know the dogs pretty well so I am fairly confident there are no allergies. I will include an ingredients list with them though so the owners can check. Just need to decide what to make now!
Those cookies look delicious BorderTerrier I like the ribbon too - I might steal that idea How long do they keep? That is my biggest worry as I don't want them all going horrid before I've had a chance to give them out!
I have made dog treats before. The recipe I used is this one: www.dogtreatkitchen.com/overweight-dogs.html I substituted the flour to make them grain free though (I used gram flour). I gave them to friends and family and they all said the dogs enjoyed them
I'm not making any this year as I don't think I have time. When I did make them, I bought some plastic bags with paw prints on them off eBay too, just to add to the presentation
I used spelt flour when making liver cake and other biscuits, works pretty good, If you search there was loads of recipes on here and loads online too. Liver cake is best in airtight in fridge or freezer. When I was doing a lot at doggy baking I found a lot of the doggy biscuits either said best in airtight or paper bags. If it's a paper ad one you could always gets. We doggy stamp or write dogs name on and make them pretty
If you're meaning the bags we've used paper bags and decorated with crayons (pens go thru) If it's biscuits then either a carob choc melted down which can be pricy or a doggy icing which I found a recipe online. Basically sugar free style, can't mind it thou
