Homemade ‘fresh breath’ dog treat recipe

Strangely enough I much prefer baking for dogs than humans, luckily Izzy is the other way round, so on our blog you’ll often find her yummy recipes for the kids and mine for the dogs 🙂 I’ve used the Lily’s Kitchen ‘Tasty Treats for Happy Dogs” book a few times now and would highly recommend. I’ve linked in here.

I tried out this recipe recently as Rupert has had stinky breathe and they worked really well. I didn’t have any spirulina so didn’t use that but they still worked well and the fennel seeds made them smell lovely (plus they are a good antioxidant and can help with digestion).

Here’s the recipe, they are honestly really easy to do and Rupert loved them.

Makes 12ish


135g oat flour or plain flour, plus extra for dusting

1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seeds

1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley

1/2 teaspoon spirulina (optional but recommended)

4 teaspoons sunflower oil or olive oil

4 teaspoons water



Preheat oven to 180c/160c fan/350f/Gas Mark 4.

Grease or line a baking tray.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix well and form a dough.

Place dough on lightly floured surface and roll into a sausage shape about the diameter of a pound coin. Cut into slices about 5mm thick and flatten slightly before placing on baking tray.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Allow to cool then keep in airtight container for up to a week .
