A Dog Walker's Favourite Christmas Dog Treat Recipe

A recipe that you can make at home.

We all love to treat our dogs from time to time, especially on special occasions, like birthdays and Christmas. For a lot of dogs, the best way to their heart is through their tummy, so what better gift than a tasty treat, to get those tails wagging. What's an even better tasty treat, is something homemade.

Homemade dog treats are also great for dogs who have allergies to certain ingredients, meaning that you can generally substitute it for something else that your will be fine with.   

I’m going to share a couple of homemade tasty dog treats that I've made and have been tried and tested by Coastal Canine’s very own Robbie (The Staffordshire Bull Terrier). These were then double taste tested by the Robbie’s friends at work and they got the paws up from them too.  

Banana and Carrot Biscuits


You will need:

1 mashed banana

2 carrot finely chopped, (I tend to grate these, as these go through the dough more evenly)

250grams plain flour (you can use whole-wheat flour if you wish)

170grams rolled oats

1 tablespoon of oil (I use vegetable/sunflower oil)

1 tablespoon ground ginger

1 tablespoon ground parsley

Water as needed

Cookie cutter of your choice (I use bones generally, but you can make them any shape to fit the occasion)


1) Preheat oven to 160C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.

2) Mix the all the ingredients in one large mixing bowl.

3) Add water a little at a time. Be careful you don’t tip too much water in, or the dough will be really sticky and will stick to your hands and the cupboard when trying to roll it out.

4) Once you have a lovely firm dough, spread some flour onto the work surface, and roll out the dough, to stop it sticking to the surface.

5) Roll the dough out onto the surface about ¼ inch thick, and using your cookie cutter to cut out the shapes.

6) Lay them out onto the baking sheet and bake in oven for 25 minutes and leave to cool down.

7) Allow your four legged friend to taste test them themselves to get their tails wagging for more.

These make approximately 72 small bone shapes biscuits.

Why not give them as gifts, to your friends and family's dogs!  


My second recipe is a meaty one. This one is Liver Cake .

Liver Cake


You will need:

12oz liver, this can be any kind of liver that is the cheapest or the butcher has.

12oz of self-raising flour

2 eggs

2 cloves of garlic

1 cup of milk.

You will also need to open a window, as this recipe can be very stinky!


1) Pre heat oven to 160 c and grease and well flour a roasting tin. The size I use is roughly 8”x11”x2”.

2) Liquidise the liver, eggs, garlic and milk until smooth.

3) Add to the flour and its thoroughly mixed in.

4) Bake for 45 minutes.

5) Leave to cool slightly in the tin, and then turn out onto a cooling tray.

6) Once cooled, you can cut into squares, (size of your choice, but I normally cut into bite size pieces)

7) Allow your four legged friend to come and taste test the meaty treat. They will not be disappointed!

You can freeze these treats and defrost them as and when needed. I like to use these as training treats also as they smell great to the dogs. Robbie loves these as a reward.

Watch This Space!

My next treat recipe is being done for  this Christmas, so watch this space to find out if the dogs liked them or not!
