Our dog bone treats recipe is flavored with chicken and chicken broth, and is very easy to make! It uses only safe and healthy natural human grade ingredients.
You can make these dog bones with or without chicken. If you are on a tight budget, you can use chicken broth as a flavoring, without the expense of including chicken.
However, if you have some canned chicken or cooked chicken leftovers that you want to use, you can add protein and flavor to your dog treats by adding finely chopped chicken pieces to the dough.
I make these dog bones with dog bone cookie cutters in 3 sizes: 1 inch, 3 inches, and 5 inches. I love the 1 inch size because it’s so versatile!
The 1" size dog bones have so few calories (9 calories per bone) that you can feed them to overweight dogs, big dogs, small dog breeds or even puppies.
And you can use them for training treats. It’s almost like you don’t have to count the small amount of calories, if you give them to large breed dogs!
The dog bone treats in the picture are the larger 5" size, which are a better choice for large breed dogs. Or, if you prefer, break a larger bone into smaller pieces for a smaller breed or puppy.
Thoroughly dry chicken dog bones can be stored at room temperature for a several months in your favorite good dog cookie jar in a cool dry location.
If you plan to keep them longer, or you are not sure that they are dry enough, put your dog bone treats an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator or freezer.You'll find a number of great cookie cutters for dog treats here.
