This might sound strange but Abby likes human cookies and I know they are bad for her and that doggie cookies would be better for her this is the part of the question that sounds strange what dog treats taste like human food if I could find her some like that even rawhydes like that I am sure she would like them I have heard that the carob they use in dog chocolate chip cookies is nasty, I also know Abby will try any food I eat or at least smell of it before she makes her mind up it might be cheapier to do the homemade ones like the mutt meat balls I found in my natrual dog magazine but I would like to know I know there are cherry flavored bones that look like hard candy for people but it is like a crunchy dog treat, but I still want to know if anyone does know I know it sounds strange but if you know of rawhydes or dog treats that taste like human food then please let me know and I will try to find Abby some?

I like carob but a lot of people don't. There are a lot of good recipes online for pet food and treats. I've made dog treats that included bananas, peanut butter, bacon, pumpkin, all sorts of good stuff. They don't have sugar in them, which is a good thing, but other than that, they include healthy human-grade ingredients. Just do a search for "homemade dog treats." You should get lots of hits. One place to start your search is Bullwinkle.com . They have some good recipes. I don't feed my dogs rawhides, so I can't help you on that one. Again, you can probably do a search for what you're looking for and, if they make it, you'll find where to buy it.

A lot of us eat carob in place of chocolate. It's not nasty, it's just not chocolate. People try to make comparisons between the two and they're different. Carob is a good replacement for vegans and others that don't eat chocolate because of the butter fat. The good thing is that dogs aren't going to say, "Hey, this doesn't taste like Hersey's chocolate!" like people do. They eat things based on their own merits. The good thing is that anything you cook will be made with human-grade ingredients so it will taste like human food. There's a wide variety in pet food recipes so the hardest part will be finding some that she really likes. My suggestion is to go with those that have pumpkin and/or peanut butter in the recipe.

I haven't ever seen cherry-flavored bones but I have seen cherry-flavored pig and cow ears.

years ago when i worked in a pet store the boss used to get ones that were soft like homemade in the shape of bones. the favorite was peanutbutter. i must admit though the smelled so good we did taste them. the pups didn't get many after that we ate them all. all people ingredients. oh my i haven't thought of that in years. i don't even know where she got them or who made them.

My dogs areVERY fussy when it comes to their cookies, but I would like to suggest that you go ahead and try homemade......good luck and let us know if that was successful.
