I like the idea of my dogs eating super simple and healthy ingredients whenever possible, I'm not super fussy about it but rather just aware. So I've really loved this recipe, especially when I have a leftover carrot in the fridge as it's super quick and easy to make and the dogs love them!
Although I give these to my dogs regularly (don't tell mum), I think these would be great little treats to make for when the dogs come home from the groomers, the kennels or perhaps if they have to go to the vet. Not to mention, these would be great little birthday or Christmas treats if you can manage to hid them well enough.
I have to admit, Fergus (our clever Labrador x Border Collie) did sneak a few off the bench during the photo session...can you see the big black paw in the background? Yeah, he's pretty good at this.
Note: if you have a little difficulty cutting out the cookies due to the grated carrot, a secondary option to shape your cookies using a cookie cutter is to place the cookie cutter onto the prepared tray and spoon 2 tsp of cookie mixture into the cookie cutter, using the teaspoon press the dough into the corners to fill the cookie cutter shape then lift it off and repeat for each cookie.
Also, if you're looking for a dog bone cookie cutter like mine, I found mine for a really good price on Trade Me! It's really good quality and arrived within a great time frame.
