National Dog Biscuit Day 2022 is on Wednesday, February 23, 2022: how to devise a homemade dog food diet?
Wednesday, February 23, 2022 is National Dog Biscuit Day 2022.
Here are 3 good dog treat recipes that are easy to make at home.
Great chicken flavored snack for your dog full of the goodness and chicken livers.
1 lb. chicken liver
2 tablespoons molasses
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup dried milk
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour onto a baking tray and bake at 400 until the sides start to come away from the pan or a knife comes out clean.
Let it cool, cut into pieces and store in fridge.
1 package dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup milk
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rye flour
1/2 cup rice flour
2 cups all-purpose white flour
Preheat oven to 325°F (165°C).
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in water. In a large saucepan, mix together the potatoes, milk, molasses, stock, and peanut butter. Heat, stirring frequently until boiling. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Add yeast mixture. Gradually blend in the egg, wheat, rye, and rice flours. Add enough white flour to form a stiff dough.
Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth (about 3-5 minutes). Shape the dough into a ball and roll to 1/2-inch (12 mm) thick. Using cookie cutters, cut out biscuituncreasedon ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about 1/4-inch (6 mm) apart. Gather up the scraps, roll out again, and cut additional biscuits.
Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool overnight. Makes several dozen bones that freeze well--and have the consistency of pizza crusts, a favorite snack for most spoiled dogs!

Today’s National Dog Biscuit Day! In honor of the holiday, here’s a quick and easy dog biscuit recipe that just so happens to be one of my boy Sam’s favs. The recipe takes about 15 minutes start to finish and uses ingredients you already have on hand. Does it get any easier?! Hope your pup enjoys them as much as mine does!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheese (I use the pre-grated cheese in the shaker)
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup evaporated low fat milk
1. Preheat your oven to 350 and lightly grease a baking sheet or pizza pan.
2. Place all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well.
3. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the dough and roll into balls with your hands. Hint: Slightly wet hands keep this from becoming too messy.
4. Place the dough balls on your lightly greased baking sheet and bake them 10-12 minutes or until golden brown in color.
Makes 25-30 dog biscuits.
Store them in an airtight container or a ziploc bag.
can a post man ..........?
I'll explain why its like this first, and in my last paragraph, I'll explain what you can do about it.
Before I explain, I just want to say this:
I take offence to the "postmen are poofs" comment.
"Poofs" don't get up at 4am, six days a week, or walk 15 miles with 16kg sacks (and you usually get 6-10 sacks per round) in all weathers, working under difficult conditions with no thanks from the public, risking attack from dogs or people (I have been attacked and robbed for my mail during my time). Thats my job, pal, but despite all that, I enjoy it most of the time. But it is by no means easy, and I've seen people start and drop out very quickly.
To answer your question: Postmen are allowed to do this. Although there can be some debate about it, a postman can refuse to deliver if he feels it would put him in danger. Examples I would tend to use are if there is any construction going on overhead, or steep paths when they are particularly icy (not fun with 16kg over one shoulder), or dogs loose.
If your dog is in any part of your property where he can come into contact with the postman as he attempts delivery, it counts as "loose".
You say your dog is "soft as a brush". I remember when I was on a delivery when I first started in the job, and a woman shouted from an upstairs window, "don't mind the dog, he won't hurt a fly." So I happily went into the yard, ignoring the dog completely.
What she actually meant was that it won't hurt the flies it knows. I still carry the scars from that dog. Since then, I do not go into a garden where there is a dog and no owner close by.
I have been bitten quite a few times since then, but thats been by dogs that surprised me, or that have caught my fingers from the other side of the letterbox.
Dogs are still just wild animals. They won't bite the hand that feeds them, and some are genuinely friendly to everyone (and your's may be one of those), but we only get one set of limbs, and we don't like taking any chances.
Sometimes we do get a bit lax when it comes to that but it does get hammered home every so often. A postman came very close to losing an arm, and suffered horrific injuries in a dog attack two days before Christmas last year; I believe it was reported in the national media.
You say your dog doesn't bark at anyone, that doesn't mean it won't snap. I've seen dogs be completely silent before suddenly jumping and trying to get at me through doors or fences. Again, your dog may be calm as anything, but the postman still can't guarantee this.
A sensible postman will never deliver to an address if he will come into contact with a dog there (including if the front door of a dog-owning household is open), unless he is extremely familiar with that dog. Likewise a responsible dog-owner (and I'm not getting personal and calling you irresponsible at all, don't take it that way), will ensure the dog acts well around other people, or is kept in a back garden or indoors during the usual delivery times. As the postman doesn't know whether or not each individual takes these actions, you can surely understand why we take no chances. Personal safety comes before the job, I'm afraid, but I'm sure that applies in your workplace too.
The postwoman you mention may have been braver. For all the reasons that I covered above, I would consider her dafter, rather than braver, unless she was just more familiar with your dog.
Also, another postman in my Delivery Office carries dog biscuits at all times and throws one to the dogs on his round as a form of "appeasement". She may have been doing that.
Finally, if you still have a problem with this, contact your local Delivery Office. You can speak to the manager responsible for deliveries in your area, but he'll probably repeat what I've told you. The best solution is for you to keep your dog around the back, indoors, or tied up during the delivery period, or you could put a mailbox in your front wall or gate, so the postman doesn't have to enter your yard to deliver. They are quite cheap, and most have a decent lock. You can get ones built into a gate, with access only on the inside, or heavy duty ones if you're worried about theft.
Why is Crufts called Crufts?
Crufts is an annual international Championship conformation show for dogs organised and hosted by the Kennel Club (UK), currently held every March at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, England. It is the largest annual dog show in the world, as declared by the Guinness Book of Records, and lasts four days.
Crufts consists of several competitions occurring at the same time. The main competition is for the Best in Show award, which is generally considered the highest award achievable by a dog and its owner.
Crufts was named after its founder, Charles Cruft. Charles Cruft worked for a dog biscuit manufacturer, travelling to dog shows both in the United Kingdom and internationally, which allowed him to establish contacts and understand the need for higher standards for dog shows. In 1886, Cruft's first dog show, billed as the "First Great Terrier Show", had 57 classes and 600 entries. The first show named "Crufts"—"Cruft's Greatest Dog Show"— was held at the Royal Agricultural Hall, Islington, in 1891. It was the first at which all breeds were invited to compete, with around 2,000 dogs and almost 2,500 entries.
With the close of the 19th century, entries had risen to over 3,000, including royal patronage from various European countries and Russia. The show continued annually and gained popularity each year until Charles' death in 1938. His widow ran the show for four years until she felt unable to do so due to its high demands of time and effort. To ensure the future and reputation of the show (and, of course, her husband's work), she sold it to The Kennel Club.
In 1936, "The Jubilee Show" had 10,650 entries with the number of breeds totalling 80. The 1948 show was the first to be held under the new owner and was held at Olympia, where it continued to gain popularity with each passing year. The first Obedience Championships were held in 1955. In 1959, despite an increase in entrance fees, the show set a new world record with 13,211 entrants. By 1979, the show had to be moved to Earls Court exhibition centre as the increasing amount of entries and spectators had outgrown the capacity of its previous venue. Soon, the show had to be changed again—the duration had to be increased to three days in 1982, then again in 1987 to four days as the popularity continued to increase. Since 1991, the show has been held in the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, the first time the show had moved out of London since its inception.
 Competing for Best in Show
Crufts is not an open competition; dogs must have qualified by successfully competing at lesser championship shows throughout the previous year.
Dogs compete in hierarchical fashion, beginning with dogs of the same breed. The judge will award several certificates (titles); culminating with Best of Breed and Best Puppy. (See the entry at Best of Breed for a description of the competition)
Dogs can also compete within each breed. These classes include Veteran, Spec puppy, Spec junior, Spec yearling, Post grad, Mid limit, Limit, and Open. Each is awarded once for dogs and once for bitches.
After the best of each breed has been chosen, they then compete with the others in their group (in the UK, there are seven Groups: Toys, Gundogs, Utility, Hounds, Working, Pastoral, and Terriers) to find the Best in Group. The seven Group winners then compete to find the Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show.
