Doggy Breath Mints Cafe Dog Style

Posted on August 4, 2012

Things are getting crazy here!!! The movers come in six days! So everything is getting organized, cleaned, and otherwise dealt with. Things are going to get a lot more insane before it’s over. So I beg your forgiveness as our blog which we try to keep up with may for a little while become a little sporadic. We love all our readers and we would hate to lose any of you. So stick with us! Things should even out soon. Today, I took some time out in the kitchen, to make my favorite boys something special, sometimes in the chaos it is just necessary….

Doggy Breath Mints, fresh out of the oven.

I made them some lovely biscuits shaped like Christmas cookies. I might have done bone shaped, but I only had Christmas shaped cookie cutters. But hey, that’s Christmas in July… Err… Well… August, for them anyway. I don’t think they will care much about the shape. Kinda odd to be baking Christmas-like cookies, for dogs, in the Turkish Sauna, that is Vienna, in the summer time. So my attempt at relaxation back fired. But, if my boys like their treats then it’s all worth it.

The good boys wait patiently at the kitchen door.

Here is the recipe,

  • 2 cups organic whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 a cup organic¬† mint (You can add a bit more if you like but I wouldn’t add too much more.)
  • 1/8th cup organic parsley ( More parsley is also optional up to 1/2 a cup would be fine.)
  • 3 table spoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg from a free range chicken
  • 1/3rd cup milk

Roll out the dough, then cut it with cookie cutters on a floured surface.

Pre-heat the oven to about 350. Get a good sized bowl, and pour in the whole wheat flour, add in your milk, and vegetable oil. Beat the 1 egg in a smaller bowl. Then add the beaten egg to the large bowl containing the rest of the ingredients. On a cutting board, chop up your fresh herbs very fine and small. Add the freshly sliced herbs to the mix, and mix them in well. Use a bit more whole wheat flour on a flat surface, and roll out your dough. It should be of a similar texture to Christmas cookies.  If it is too wet add more flour. If too dry a little water. Roll the herb filled dough out with a floured rolling pin, then cut them into shapes with a cookie cutter or use a small cup turning it upside down, to create little cookies. Then bake it for about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the size and width of your cookies. The thinner they are, the more crunchy they get. Remember to let them cool before you feed them to your dog!

This is a lovely recipe for gourmet dog treats. Because the ones you love most likely have the breath you like least. We have found this to be true in our home. It can start to smell doggy at night as we have only one air conditioner in the living room, and the bed is set up each night in here for a little bit of summer time camping. The dogs love it, we love it too….. Till the dogs curl up with us and start breathing in our faces. So, we have developed a special breath mint to deal with the problem. Life gives you dog breath…. Make it smell minty!

Certified, organic and Cafe Dog approved! Yum yum for the furry one!
