DIY High Protein Dog Biscuits

DIY High Protein Dog Biscuits

    Our dogs do a lot of work and we like to reward them with special treats.  But we would also like the treats to be healthy and give our dogs fuel for their jobs.  This Homemade High Protein Dog Biscuit gives our dogs a treat they love but also fuel to keep them going on while doing their jobs herding Canada geese off properties.

I have adjusted this recipe several times to get it where it is now.  I include Venison liver, because I have it available from our deer hunts and I do not like to let anything go to waste. Our dogs also get to enjoy the heart the day I come home as a treat. We raise Indian Runner ducks so I include their eggs along with the shells crushed up. Delicious Bacon grease is to added for some fat. What dog does not love bacon?  Then garlic and parsley. 

  Garlic for dogs, as well as for human health, is an excellent antibiotic and immune booster. I stick with fresh, raw garlic and keep it on hand for both cooking and healing. If it’s fresh, I have read that the medicinal qualities are still there. 


4 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup of Oatmeal
1 1/2 cups Bone Meal
2 tablespoons Parsley
1 pound of liver ( your choice)
2 cloves fresh garlic
3 Duck eggs or 5 chicken eggs
1/2 cup Bacon Grease



  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Mix until well blended with a wooden spoon
  3. Set aside
  4. Cut the liver in cubes and blend in a blender a bit at a time until pureyed
  5. Add Garlic, crack eggs and shells add to blender and blend for 30 seconds
  6. Add the bacon grease in liquid form and blend for 5 seconds
  7. Add  1/2 the Liquids to dry ingredients in the large bowl
  8. Mix until absorbed
  9. Add the rest of the liquid a little a time.
  10. The dough should be the consistency of a dense cookie dough.
  11. If it it too stiff add a little more water. The dough should be a bit tacky that is requires some flour to handle and to avoid sticking to your counter.
  12. Pre heat oven to 375f


  1. Cut the dough in half
  2. Roll out the dough to about 3/16" thick
  3. Use whatever shape cookie cutter you have chosen to cut out your pieces.  We used Canada Goose shapes for fun the last time. We also use dog bone shapes. Any shape will do.
  4. Place evenly spaced on a cookie sheet.
  5. These do not spread a lot so they  can be about 1/4" apart


  1. Place biscuits on the center rack and bake for 25 minutes.

When these are done, they are very crunchy. Our dogs enjoy them very much we hope yours will too!
