How to make home-made cat treats and dog treats?

I want to make some home-made cat treats and sell them. My friend makes home-made dog biscuits and sells them i don’t know for how much. She puts them in a plastic bag with a tag called “Bam’s biscuits” because her dog is called Bam. I was wondering if you have any recipes for cat or dog treats? My friend does like fresh breeze biscuits for fresh breath and tuna triangles. But I wanna do for cats. Please give me some name ideas and an idea for a “company” name and recipes. Thanks a lot xo

This is a great recipe. Buy some colorful clear-tinted cellophane paper that people use to wrap gift baskets… put about 5 – 10 cookies inside and then tie a bow around the top. Some store may even sell this kind of paper with a kitty-cat print. Have Fun!

Kitty Cat Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup soy flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup dried catnip
1/4 cup canned tuna (water packed) — well drained
1/2 cup juice from drained tuna — Add water if needed
1/2 cup corn oil
1 egg — lightly whisked

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix. Then add remaining ingredients and stir to form a stiff dough. If the dough seems to sticky, add a little more whole wheat flour. Make dough into a ball shape and place on wax paper. Roll out to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into shapes with animal shaped cookie cutters, if desired. Reroll and cut more cookies until scraps are used. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for about 25 minutes. Store in a plastic bag, that you keep tightly wrapped, in the refrigerator.

How can i stop my dog from barking when my dad walks in the house or sometimes just when he walks past him?

My dad is the type of person that he “will not” tolerate a dog barking at him in his own home or when he comes into his own home. My dog is fairly small and cant be a threat, but its just the principal of it. Sometimes he will bark and sometimes he will growl at him. We have all rough housed and played with him, but my dad is the only one he barks at and growls at. Any suggestion on how to get him to stop. My dad is not a very big animal person, i mean he does play with him, but he is not gonna take the “extra” time with him. What do i need to do to break my dog of this habit and quick?

New Niche Finder answers:

Your dog doesn’t respect your dad or you. I would assume that your dog is most likely a protective type that feels the need to protect his territory or his owners. You need to teach your dog that you are his leader and so is any other human that he comes across.

Since your dad doesn’t really want to go the extra bit to fix the problem, it’s up to you. I suggest that you leave a leash or choke chain of the dog at all times. When your dad comes home or walks past the dog, be ready to correct your dog. You have to be really watching. You have to correct your dog before he goes and actually barks or growls. If you correct him afterword, it will be too late. Just give the leash or chain a sharp jerk and make a noise or command such as “no” or a shh sound or snap your fingers. If you don’t want to use the leash or chain then use your hand. When the dog is about to do something you don’t want him to do, push him with your fingertips and make your noise or command. The fingertips will feel like teeth and it will snap him out of his aggressive mood. Neither of these methods will hurt your dog, they will only help snap him out of his bad behavior and show that you mean business. Eventually, your dog will learn that the noise or command means he is doing something bad and that will be all you’ll have to do and you won’t need the leash or use your hand any more.

If your dad is willing to try something, I suggest you have him walk your dog. A walk is a great way to earn a dog’s respect and affection. When I say walk, I mean that the dog stays right at his side and doesn’t run behind, in front, or away from him. He can’t stop to sniff things and what not. Your dad is going to walk the dog not the other way around. Your dog will learn quickly who is in charge.

I hope I helped and good luck with your dog.

Mark asks…

Is introducing two kittens to a dog a good idea?

I am looking at adopting two kittens from the PEIHS, and I am wondering if it is a good idea to adopt two kittens when I have a 4 1/2 year old dog at home. The dog is well tempered although I was wondering whether two kittens would be too much or would one be better for my dog. I am really looking to find out whether I should get two kittens or one. Advice would be greatly appreciated :)

New Niche Finder answers:

I have a four year old dog and I raised two, two week old kittens for five weeks and she LOVED them!!! So the younger the kitties the better it will be, and it does depend on your dogs personality! But you will have to pay CONSTANT attention (especially if you have a big dog) because the dog could accidentily hurt your new family members! The first few weeks will be tiring but it will be totally worth it! Good luck!

How do I get my mom to let me keep the dog?

Today my dad brought home I dog and he said we could only keep it for 1 night but my sister and I want to keep it for more all my mom has said is things like ” get that dog back to the geto where it came from” how do I persuade her to let me keep the dog

New Niche Finder answers:

Your mom might be scared of the “another mouth to feed” sort of thing. Puppies or dogs also take a lot of responsibility that children/teens say that they’ll take care of the dog, but soon start slacking on caring for the dog and the responsibility falls on the parents. Training dogs to be house broken takes a lot of time and patience. A puppy or stray dog might look cute, but it requires a lot of time and money to care for the first year or so of it’s life.

Your mom might also be scared of where the dog came from and that it might be aggressive, causing problems within the home. She mentioned “take it back to the ghetto” the ghetto, usually known for dogs who have been trained to fight and she fears for the safety of her family.

Charles asks…

When you first bring home a working dog puppy?

I just brought home a working dog puppy and will be starting his training for SAR work, but I am new to this and have heard a few different ways of “introduceing” him. Does he stay in the crate the majority of the time and only the handler does EVERYTHING with him so that the pup knows who the “pack leader” is?? I am confused, I heard different things and I want to do this the right way?

New Niche Finder answers:

Where ever you got the dog they will tell you excatly what to do. You should have gone through a training seminar with them before ever being able to get a pup to prepare it for possible training. You screw up he doesn’t get to go on to actual training. SO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS GIVEN!!!
