    Irene from Kerikeri recommends a recipe by Annabelle White, although she says they are more like a treat than a dog biscuit; they are not a substitute for a good doggy diet.
    Here’s the recipe. You will need: 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup rolled oats, 1 tablespoon dried parsley or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, 1/2 cup non-fat dry milk,1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 large eggs, 1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or plain) and 1/2 cup water.
    Preheat the oven to 150°C. Lightly grease a couple of baking trays, or line them with greaseproof paper. Mix the flour, rolled oats, parsley, milk powder, and salt. Process until the mixture resembles sawdust. Add the eggs and peanut butter – the mixture will be crumbly. Add the water to bring the dough together. roll out the mix to about 5mm thickness then cut into shapes with a shape cutter or freehand. Bake for about 40 to 60 minutes. Serve to pooch cold. Variations include adding leftover bacon pieces or grated carrot.

    Another reader suggests peanut butter dog cookies. They say making biscuits is a good way of introducing those extra ingredients for good health, like fish oil for a good coat or garlic granules to deter fleas.
    The ingredients are: 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of rolled oats, 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/2 tablespoon of fish oil, 2 tablespoons of garlic granules, and 11/2 cups of water.

    Preheat the oven to 175°C. Mix the flour and oats together. Pour in one cup of water and blend until smooth. Add in the peanut butter, honey, garlic granules, and fish oil. Mix well. Add the remaining water and mix until a dough-like consistency. Roll the dough until between 5 and 10mm thick and cut into shapes. Bale for 40 minutes.
