Daisy's Showstopping Liver Bait
MBISS GCH Hladik's Jump Up and Kiss Me AOM ("Daisy")'s stunning self stack and perhaps her amazing success in the show ring is due mainly to the fabulous training of her handler Barbara Waldkirch. However, legend has it that it could also be the result of this bait. Try it and stack your bitch! Or dog..... Let me know. Can't argue with perfection!
One 5 pound chunk of organic beef liver.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place entire liver in a disposable aluminum pan. Do not slice!!! Cook for 3 hours. Allow to cool completely. Slice liver in bite size chunks. Save leftover juices from pan in a small container. The liquid can be used to add to almost any of the other recipes! Keep leftover liver in Ziploc baggies and store in the refrigerator. Head to the dog shows and watch your pampered pooch self stack for a treat! Good luck!!!
(Do not store this bait for more than a few days.)
Fificus' Low Fat Chicken Treat Treats
Fificus' humble beginnings were as an adorable skinny rescue. My mom's strong German cooking background does not include skinny or scrawny in the vocabulary. Fificus ("Cus" to her family and friends) is still adorable but a tad rotund. She loves treat treats (as my mom calls them) but there are so many on the market which are too high in fat. Low fat versions of treats did not meet Cus standards. This recipe is simple and perfect. This recipe also works wonders as show/training bait. It breaks off easily, is not oily or greasy and stores in the refrigerator for almost two weeks.
2 boneless organic chicken breasts (may have some skin).
Slice chicken breasts very thin. Place on a dehydrator sheet. Set dehydrator for meats. Allow to dry for 6-8 hours. Then cool. Chicken should be crunchy strips. Have your dog do a trick. Break apart treat and feed bits to your amazing pooch.
Lilly's Little Leckerchen
It means special little treat in German. Lilly is a special girl who excels in being the little princess of the house. The choice of adding veal to your dog's diet can get a little pricey. You can use a different meat if you choose. Chicken and turkey do well. However, the veal (even on occasion) makes it very special – just like Lilly.
1 pound ground veal
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 cup bread crumbs
4 mozzarella cheese sticks cut into 8 bites for each stick
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine veal, flax seed, eggs and bread crumbs. Mix with your hands until combined. Form meat mixture into 1 inch balls. Carefully press cheese bites into each ball. You can add more cheese bites if you desire. Place balls on a cooking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes or until cheese starts to melt. Allow to cool completely. Treat your diva or princes!
Ernie's Amazing Pumpkin
Deer Valley's The Importance of Being Ernie v. Hladik ("Ernie") wants his food prompt, fast and lots of it. Once assembled, this recipe is quick, easy and ready to go once cooled. In addition, the pumpkin is great for the tummy, easily digested and flax seed has countless benefits for skin and coat.
1 12 oz can of pure pumpkin
1 pound ground organic turkey
1 teaspoon of ground flax seed
1 whole egg
2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. When thoroughly incorporated, make into meatball shapes Size the balls according to the size of your dog. Place meatballs on greased cookie sheet (lightly sprayed with PAM). Cook Meatballs for 40 minutes or starting to brown on the outside. Take out of the oven and allow to completely cool (place on a high counter if you have counter surfers)..... Enjoy.
Bruno's Oy Veys
Bruno is a ham as you can see from his picture. If your dog enjoys salmon, they will LOVE this! The smell of canned salmon is strong so be prepared. Mixed with cream cheese, most dogs can't resist. Don't store this for more than a few days in the refrigerator because of the dairy ingredients.
1 cup flour
1 tsp aluminum free organic baking soda
1 tsp baking baking powder
2 eggs slightly beaten
2 tbsp crushed flax seed
1 12 oz can salmon
1 oz cream cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix first 6 ingredients in a bowl until you have a paste consistency. On a nonstick cookie sheet, take one teaspoon of the mixture and place on cookie sheet. Press down and add a dollup of cream cheese in the middle. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool. Oy Vey! That's tasty!!!CHAPTER 2
Zuda's Rainy Day Hash
The great thing about this recipe is you can pick and choose what you want to use and the dish will remain true. If your dog has a preference for a certain meat or vegetable, you can focus on what he or she likes and disregard what is distasteful. Because the veggies cook down, you can also experiment with a new veggie and not worry about ruining the dish!
2 pounds organic ground meat (choose turkey, chicken or beef)
1 tablespoon garlic
1 cup quinoa or rice (depending on preference)
2 cups water
Organic vegetables (your choice – whatever is in season).
(Try broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato, peas, carrots. Everything will cook down.)
Using a skillet, add olive or coconut oil and heat. Add meat and brown crumbling the meat as much as possible. Add your rice/quinoa, water and veggies and simmer until water is absorbed. Stir gently and allow to cool. Serve and enjoy!
Maisie's Magic Meatloaf
Deer Valley's Busy Being Fabulous v. Hladik ("Maisie") can pick a pea out of a gallon bowl filled with her favorite food. If she doesn't want to eat something, she gently turns away (secretly disgusted), finds a comfy spot and sits down, staring at you until you find something more to her taste. A true diva in the making (so much like her mother Daisy in terms of beauty and perfection – I can forgive almost anything!). She loves this meatloaf and its consistency pleases her magnificent little taste buds.
Make sure to wash the sweet potato and chop it into 1 inch pieces. You want the potato soft so it's easy to work with and easy to digest. You can also substitute quinoa for the rice if that is your pup's preference.
2 pounds organic beef trim
2 cups spring water
1 large sweet potato (chopped with skin on)
2 large eggs (include shell)
1 small bunch parsley
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
1 cup cooked rice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Using an aluminum disposable lasagna pan (makes cleaning easy) place beef trim, sweet potato, 2 cracked eggs (include the shells), parsley and peas inside the pan. Add 2 cups of water (or substitute one cup low sodium chicken broth for one cup of water). Cover with aluminum foil and cook for 1 hour. Allow to cool completely. Work meat mixture in batches through the food processor. Add rice to ground meat mixture. Form into a meatloaf pan and cook at 250 for additional 1/2 hour to 45 minutes at 300 degrees until browning on top. Cool completely. Slice for appropriate serving size (depending on the size of your dog) and enjoy!!!
Thanksgiving Fit for a Kingston
CH Hladik's Shaken Not Stirred ("Kingston") loves Thanksgiving. He will follow anyone around the kitchen just in case something tasty is offered to him. He never countersurfs and is always gentle when offered a treat. He will even eat a cranberry (if it's mixed with enough chicken broth and turkey meat to mask the taste!). This recipe smells divine. It even brings the humans to the kitchen asking what time dinner is ready.
5 pound organic turkey trimmings (cut to bite size pieces appropriate for your dog)
3 medium size sweet potatoes (cubed to bite size pieces appropriate for your dog)
1 cup breadcrumbs (for stuffing)
1 carrot (chopped to bite size pieces appropriate for your dog)
1 small bunch parsley
Handful of fresh or frozen cranberries
2 cups water or chicken broth
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and scrub the veggies. Place turkey trimmings and potatoes in bottom of aluminum pan. Add carrots and parsley. Sprinkle cranberries and breadcrumbs over mixture. Add water or broth and cook for 2 hours. Let cool completely. Either spoon and serve or work in batches in the food processor to create a course paste. Enjoy!!!
Bella is loved and cared for by our niece. She's aging as gracefully as possible. Our canine seniors need special attention. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE raw apple cider vinegar for arthritic conditions (that goes for people too)! Pumpkin and oats are easily digested. Store these in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Bella's Pork, Pumpkin and Parsley Patties
2 pounds organic ground pork (lean, no bones)
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups bread crumbs
3 eggs (include shells)
1 cup dried parsley
1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
1 28 oz can of pure pumpkin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Combine all ingredients until well blended. With a large spoon or your hand, make burger patties. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 1 hour. Allow to cool completely. Recipe should make up to 24 patties.
Bad Sue's Bacon Buns In the Oven
These crunchy "buns" are too tasty to pass up. What dog can resist anything with bacon?
3 cups wheat flour
2 tablespoons garlic powder
¾ cup bacon fat
1 cup shredded cheese
1 whole large egg
1 cup milk
Combine flour, garlic powder, egg, melted bacon fat and cheese in a food processor. Mixture should be crumbly similar to large grains of sand. Slowly add milk and continue mixing until it resembles a ball of dough. Hand roll balls onto a cookie sheet. The size will depend upon the size of your dog. Note, however these treats are rich as well as delicious so less is more! Bake approximately 25 minutes at 400 degrees until hard and slightly brown. Keep 'em crunchy!!!
Abby's Old Fashioned Steak and Potatoes
It you can, find organic meat! There are too many hormones, questionable feed, additives and just plain junk that cattle are being fed. We need to be aware of what we are putting into our own bodies as well as our dogs. Look for grass fed and organic. You can find organic potatoes and carrots at your local farmer's market!
2 pound organic beef trimmings (cubed to bite sized pieces appropriate for your dog)
3 medium size potatoes (cubed to bite sized pieces appropriate for your dog)
3 carrots (sliced to bite sized pieces appropriate for your dog)
2 cups water
Preheat oven 300 degrees. Place everything in an aluminum pan. Cover and bake for 2 hours until meat and veggies are soft and flavors are integrated. Let cool completely. Serve in individual bowls. To make it extra special, add a dollop of yogurt "gravy" on top. Enjoy!
Franklin's Chicken Fried Rice
Our resident Neuf puppy likes his meal easy to digest. You really can't go wrong with chicken and brown rice. Parsley and yogurt are excellent for digestion. This is very simple and works great when you are tight with time. You can store this in the refrigerator for up to one week but please add the yogurt when you are ready to serve!
1 cup cooked brown rice
¼ cup olive oil
1 pound skinless boneless chicken thighs
½ cup parsley
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
Chop the chicken pieces into bite size cubes. The size of the cubes depends if you have a Chihuahua or a Newfoundland..... Slightly heat oil in a skillet. Add the chicken and rice. Sautee until chicken is cooked through. Do not overcook. Chop parsley and add to chicken. Allow to cool. Top with yogurt. Serve.
Sadie's Brown Meat Sauce
Our gorgeous Landseer Newfoundland Sadie enjoys quality food that is easy on her system. In this very busy fast paced world, kibble is often the most time saving choice for dog owners. When choosing kibble, please read the ingredients and make the best possible, healthiest, additive free choice. Now how about adding some of your own home made "gravy" on top. You control the ingredients and add something delicious and nutritious to dry dog food. *Note* Monika has three Bassets so this makes about 6 cups. It can easily be cut in half.
2 pounds ground turkey, chicken or beef (try to find organic!)
½ pound chicken livers or gizzards or hearts
1 tablespoon bone meal
1 bunch parsley
1 cup organic carrots (diced)
6 cups water
2 tablespoons avocado oil
In a skillet, brown the liver and ground meat. Add vegetables and water and simmer. Try not to reduce the liquid but rather infuse it with the other flavors. After about 35 minutes, take skillet from heat. Allow to cool. Place mixture in food processor until liquefied. Separate "gravy" into plastic containers or baggies. May be frozen until ready to serve.
Ah Ruben – my sister's neutered little Skipperanian who enjoys endless hours of chasing tennis balls only to take a 20 minute power nap only to chase more tennis balls..... He's a busy little man who needs some great food to keep up his energy level! (haha) This recipe is reminiscent of a lovely Italian meal. Have a glass of vino while you are preparing this one!!
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1 12 oz can tomato paste
2 tablespoons ricotta cheese
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cups plain bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray two cookie sheets with Pam (original or olive oil work great). In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients. With your hand, mash all the ingredients together. With a small spoon, melon scoop or your hand, make 24 little meatballs. Place in hot oven for ½ hour. Allow to cool completely. Enjoy.
Kingston's Hidden Veggies
My handsome Kingston is convinced that it's a major infraction to his well being if vegetables are snuck into his food bowl. He would be so disgusted with me and this dish if he realized the ingredients. Fortunately, he hasn't mastered reading just yet and the liver is something he simply cannot resist. The smell of the liver overpowers the veggies and Voila! Kingston is eating his veggies.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup cauliflower (cubed)
1 cup sweet potato (cubed with skin on)
1 small green zucchini (sliced with skin on)
1 small yellow squash (sliced with skin on)
1 whole egg
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 cup prebaked cubed beef liver
1 pound organic ground turkey or chicken
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, add oil, broth, cauliflower, sweet potato, zucchini and squash. Sautee until veggies are soft and disguisable..... Either place veggies in food processor or for more coarse veggies you can manually mash them. In a separate bowl, mix ground meat to mashed veggies. Crack egg and add to mixture (not including the shell). Form into balls. Using your thumb, press a few beef liver chunks into the meatballs. Cook for 45 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Enjoy!
