Gingerbread Dog Bone Recipe

Homemade Dog Treats

This gingerbread dog bone recipe is a great choice for holiday celebrations and gift giving, but you and your dog will also enjoy the smell and taste of homemade gingerbread dog bones, all year long!

Do you enjoy the smell of gingerbread baking in the oven? Well, your dog probably does, too. Dogs have a very sensitive sense of smell, and they get lots of enjoyment from smelling interesting (and tasty) things.

When they are baking, these gingerbread dog treats give off a wonderful spicy aroma that reminds you of gingerbread cake or cookies, baking in the fall.

In fact, it is almost impossible to distinguish the aromas of ginger dog treats and homemade gingerbread. I’ve found that Skipper stays close to the oven when I am baking gingerbread for my family, as she seems to think that the baking cake is for her.


Gingerbread dog bones, baking in the oven, are certain to remind you of Thanksgiving, Christmas or a cold afternoon in the fall, with gingerbread cookies baking in the oven.



Gingerbread dog treats smell as good as they look!

But, since these gingerbread dog treats are a favorite for many dogs, I wouldn’t just make them for special occasions. Let your dog enjoy the taste of ginger, year-round!

In addition to smelling and tasting good, these dog bone treats are healthy for your dog. Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps keep your dog healthy and her joints moving and pain-free.

To make gingerbread bones, you can use a number of sizes of dog bone cookie cutters .

No matter what the size, though, these easy treats won't last long!



Ingredients - Gingerbread Dog Bone Recipe



Directions for Ginger Bones for Dogs

I like to do things the easiest way possible, so I always make this dog treat recipe in my bread maker. You can use a mixer and make the recipe a more conventional way if you prefer.


  • Put all the ingredients in your bread maker in the order that your manual suggests.
  • Set the bread maker for the dough setting.
  • When the dough is ready, remove it and divide it into 3 portions.
  • Roll each dough ball out to a thickness of ¼” or ½”—depending on the size bone you are making. The 3” bones work well at ¼” thick and the larger 5-8” bones are nice at ½” thick.
  • Using bone cookie cutters, cut out the dog biscuits.
  • Place them on a lightly greased baking sheet and let them rise for 30-60 minutes.
  • Bake at 300 degrees F for about an hour, or until lightly browned.
  • Turn off the oven and let the dog treats dry in the oven overnight.
  • In the morning, check to make sure they hard and crisp. If they give when you push on them, put them in the oven for a little longer.

These dog bone treats are nice just as they are. But, for a festive holiday gift or treat, you might consider decorating your treats with a little and colored jimmies or sprinkles .
