The easiest treat uses the dog’s favorite dry food. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Pour 1/2 cup of dry food in a food processor. When the food is broken up, add another 1/2 cup. Fill the processing bowl until 2 cups are ground into a flour. Pour the flour into a bowl and gradually stir in up to 1 1/2 cups of water. Use a large spoon or your hands to mix until a dough develops. Make small balls from the dough and flatten slightly on a greased cookie sheet. Bake the treats until very dry and nicely crunchy. This usually takes about 30 minutes. Let the treats cool before letting your pet taste test them.
