30 servings SERVINGS


  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, chopped peanuts, or your dog’s favorite nuts
  • 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
  • 4 cups pulp from dog-safe fruits and vegetables



Most commercial dog foods contain dangerous chemicals, animal by-products, fillers, preservatives and an endless list of unpronounceable ingredients. Your best friend deserves better, and the simple, all-natural recipes in The Healthy Hound Cookbook (Adams Media, 2014) will make it easy to create healthy meals for your favorite canine. The following excerpt “Dehydrated Juice Pulp Treats,” from Chapter 7, provides a recipe for grain-free dog treats using leftover pulp from fruit and vegetables.

In the last few years, numerous dog deaths and illnesses have been attributed to tainted jerky chews made with ingredients from China. There’s absolutely no need to put your dog’s health or your own peace of mind at risk, though, because it’s super easy to make your own healthy jerky and chews for your dog. You’ll know just how the chews were prepared, and you’ll know they were created with human-grade ingredients.

Homemade jerky chews also have the advantage of letting you customize the thickness and chewiness of the chew based on your own dog. If you have a senior who is missing some teeth, create a softer chew. If you’re sharing your home with a young chewing machine, create a tougher chew. Even better—you can make them all for a fraction of the price you’d pay for chews in the store.
