Reviews for Beefy Dog Treats
"I couldn't find beef and veggie baby food so I went with chicken and veggie and switched the bouillon to chicken. I gave it a 4 star as the mixture was to dry and I felt that it was missing some more water. Dog seem to love it so I might try it again now that I know to add water yet I have found other receipts that seem easier"
"I make these for my dogs all the time! They are very sensitive and scratch all the time from other treats. They love these and don't scratch at all! Sometimes I add peanut butter."
"I have been making these treats since Dec. 2007 and all 8 Pups, in the family love these! (even the picky eaters). I recently moved and haven't been able to locate this issue, so thank you TOH for keeping this recipe in your file!!"
"We have 11 dogs and I made these dog treats for them for Christmas and they loved them. I have given some to my friends' dogs along with the recipe and I am sure that my friends will be making them also."
"My Schnauzers love these treats! Have made these twice and will definitely make again. Even my sister's picky Lab ate them."
"My Louie dog can be picky. He LOVES these treats. I am recommending this recipe to all my friends."
