"My 3 bullies love these! I used oat instead of wheat flour, and rolled the dough out thicker. And also made larger sized shapes, since they're bigger dogs. I had to adjust the cooing time an extra 10 minutes, but this is a great recipe!"

"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."

"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."
