Terrific Treats


Hey guys!  Katie here :) We made these treats for Cowboy Christmas in Bailey, CO!  They sold pretty well.  Do not be afraid by the garlic powder.  Some garlic powder is not bad for dogs, but a lot is.

Garlic and Cheese Biscuits:


~ Measuring Cups
~ Cheese Grater (if cheese is not already bought grated)
~ Fridge
~ Oven
~ You


~ 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
~ 1 1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese
~ 1/4 cup corn oil margarine
~ 1 tbsp garlic powder
~ a pinch of salt
~ milk (enough to get dough to stick together)


1. Grate the cheddar cheese and let stand until it reaches room temperature.

2. Cream the grated cheese with the softened margarine, garlic, salt, and flour.

3. Add enough milk to form into a ball.

4. Chill for one-half hour. 

5. Roll out on floured board.

6. Cut into shapes (you can also just do balls).

7. Bake for 15 minutes at 375° or until slightly browned and firm.

8. Yay, you have made garlic and cheese biscuits for your dogs!

Here's a yummy recipe that will be sure to get your dog itching to earn.

Best of Breed Dog Biscuits


2 cups King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour or Premium Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup rolled oats, regular or quick
1 tablespoon dried parsley or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/ 2 cup Baker's Special Dry Milk or nonfat dry milk
1/ 2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup (9 1/4 ounces) peanut butter, crunchy or plain
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold water


Stirring utensil
Large mixing bowl
( Optional) Cutters and imprinters


1. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line them with parchment.

2. Put the following in a large mixing bowl:

2 cups King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour or Premium Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup rolled oats, regular or quick
1 tablespoon dried parsley or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/ 2 cup Baker’s Special Dry Milk or nonfat dry milk
1/ 2 teaspoon salt

3. Stir to combine.

4. Add 2 large eggs and 1 cup (9 1/4 ounces) peanut butter, crunchy or plain.

5. Stir to combine; the mixture will be crumbly.

6. Add 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold water, or enough to make a cohesive dough. Depending on the season, you may need to add a bit more (winter), or a bit less (summer).

7. To make the cookies, drop the dough in walnut-sized balls onto a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten to about 1/4” thick.

8. Use the pusher tool from a Cuisinart food processor, which makes a nice imprint on top.  ( You can also use the bottom of a plastic cup.)

9. To cut out dog bone biscuits, roll the dough about 1/4” thick. No, it won't be pretty; it’ll develop cracks all over, and very ragged edges. No worries; trust me, your dog won’t care about looks

10. Cut with a 3 1/2” cutter (or the size of your choice). Gather and re-roll the scraps, and continue to cut biscuits until you’ve used all the dough.

11. Lay the biscuits close together on the prepared baking sheets. Since the biscuits don’t include any leavening (baking powder, yeast, etc.), they won’t spread much.

12. Bake the biscuits for about 40 to 60 minutes, baking the smaller cookies for the shorter amount of time, the larger biscuits for the longer amount of time.

When finished, the biscuits will be dark golden brown, and will be dry and crisp all the way through.  If the cookies are soft in the middle simply just freeze them and feed them quickly.

And yes, it’s OK to break one open and taste it. If it’s good enough for Man’s Best Friend, it’s good enough for you!  Although, I must say they probably won't taste the best!

Thank you Kingarthurflour for the great recipe!  Please go over there and rate this recipe!

Hey guys!  Sorry I haven't posted very often.  I've just been so busy!  I'm actually going to be going to a dog show with Diva sometime soon, so maybe I can tell you guys all about it afterwards.  Now for today's treat it's going to be another dog treat and it will be... Bachelor Dog Treats.  Every male dog (and females) will love them!
Bachelor Dog Treats

From: Sherry Yard.
Note: Sherry Yard suggests small cookie cutters such as this 3-inch dog bone, but you can use larger cutters and bake the cookies a few minutes longer. She also notes that her dog has a highly trained palette and prefers Wildflower honey (She's joking, of course; there is all of 1 tablespoon of honey in these cookies.). 
Yield: About 3 dozen small cookies


Large Bowl
Small Cookie Cutters (Can be large, but small are preferred.)
Baking Sheets
Pastry Brush


4 eggs, divided (2 for the dough, 2 for the wash)
1 ounce vegetable oil
1 tablespoon honey
8 ounces chicken stock
10 ounces whole wheat flour
5 ounces all purpose flour
3 ounces cornmeal
1 cup peanut butter

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together two of the eggs, the oil and honey. Whisk in the chicken stock.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the whole wheat flour, AP flour and cornmeal. With the mixer on medium speed, slowly pour in the chicken stock mixture, then add the peanut butter. Mix until the dough comes together, about 1 minute. 
3. Divide the dough in half. Roll out each ball of dough approximately ½ inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using small (3 to 4-inch) cookie cutters. Place on baking sheets sprayed with cooking oil.
4. Whisk the remaining two eggs and brush the egg wash lightly over the cookies. Allow to dry for 10 minutes and brush with the egg wash a second time (the second wash is optional, but gives the cookies a darker brown color). Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies.

Thank you L.AWeekly for the great recipe!

The competition for the Mydivapets lizard is still up and running!  Please send us some pictures of your lizard and Allison and I will decide if it's Mydivapets material!  Tell all your friends, tell all your neighbors, spread the word!  One normal lizard will become a famous lizard soon...

If you have a pet that you want a treat up for just comment below and we will get straight to fulfilling your request!  You can also comment one of your own recipes and we will highlight it in an upcoming post.

Spread the word animal lovers, Mydivapets is one of the best trick websites!  Get your friends to train their pets!

If you are training with the treats you just made you may want to break them into a little smaller pieces, so that your dog can chew it easily.  If you are doing a heeling exercise you don't want to make your dog stop and chew when you give them a treat!


Hey guys! It is Allison. Sorry me or Katie hasn't been posting all to much! We both are busy with school starting, and after school activities! I will try to make a post at least twice a week, if possible. Katie on the other hand, I don't know. We both have a lot going on, and I don't know her schedule. I DO know I have a recipe for you though! And it is for some lucky cat lovers! We have a cat treat, because I thought we could change it up a little. And here we go! Time for... Cat attack cookies!

One cup of whole wheat flour
One fourth cup cup of soy flour
1 t catnip
1 egg
1/3 milk or cats milk
2 T wheat germ
1/3 cup powdered milk!
1 T unsulfurated molasses 
2 T butter, vegetable oil, or canola oil

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Mix together molasses, egg, oil, and milk.

3. Roll out flat on to an oiled cookie sheet, and cut into small, cat bite size pieces. 

4. Bake for 20 minutes.

5. Let cool, and store in a tightly sealed container.

Hey guys!  Katie here.  How do you like the new page?  It's important to have treats that your pet loves and what makes homemade great is that the treats are healthier for your pet and relatively cheaper!  Today I will be posting a dog treat.  Are you ready?  Today, we will be making... Peanut Butter Oat Balls!


Stirring utensil of any kind
Cookie scooper or ice cream scooper
Cookie sheet
Parchment paper  (I use butter instead, but really you just need something to keep the balls from sticking to the pan.)

1/2 cup milk, low or fat free
1 cup peanut butter, natural or organic
3 cups rolled oats

1. Stir vigorously to combine the first two ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Slowly stir (and mash) in the oats, about a 1/2 cup at a time. The mixture will be very thick.
3. Scoop out the peanut butter balls with a cookie scooper. Then roll with damp hands until you create a uniform ball shape.
4. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
5. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

I made these for my 15 year old dog for her Birthday last year.  She and her puppy pals loved them!

Thank You DogTreatKitchen for the wonderful recipe!

Remember if you're not sure if this recipe is good for your dog after you bake it, break open the treat and taste a little.  If it's OK for Man's Best Friend then it should be OK for you!  However, if they don't taste good, don't say I didn't warn you!

When using these as training treats I'd break them up in your hand, so you're not giving your dog to big a treat.

Next, do you have a photogenic lizard?  Can you imagine seeing your lizard become a star?  Well now might be your chance to make your lizard a celebrity lizard!  Mydivapets is currently looking for a fun lizard to use as our model lizard.  Just post in the comments below if you want to enter and I will send you the information you need to give us some photos of your lizard.  Allison and I will go over the photos and see if your lizard has what it takes to be a model lizard.  We will contact you as soon as possible if you win.  Enter for a chance to win!

If you enjoy Mydivapets go and checkout my other website at Mydivapets.yolasite.com!  To get updates on the whats up on Mydivapets check out our facebook page.  Our goal is for you and your pet to have all of the fun in the world.  No matter how big or how small, ALL animals have intelligence all you need to do is draw it out.  

Please check out my other pages mostlyfantasybookwriter.blogspot.com and thesurprisinglycraftyme.blogspot.com.  I know the URLs are really long.  It was really hard to get a name that wasn't already used.  For my writing page I do have a facebook account for it: The Life of a Writer.

Happy training!

Hello guys! it is Allison, and I hope you are up for some delicious fun! Today, we will be making a perfect summer drink for your lizard! This is perfect for some lizards, but some may not like this! Just like humans- they may not like everything! Most Geckos will like this though, but I'm not sure about other lizards! This is an easy treat for your lizard, and this treat is... (Drum roll!)  Great Gecko Smoothies!

One can of unsweetened mango pulp.
Small ripe banana.
One to two pears- a bit over ripe is great!
Three or four figs
A couple other small, fresh fruits- make sure to avoid all citrus fruits!
One single serving of non fat unsweetened yogurt. A fruit flavor, that is not in the citrus family!

Great Gecko Smoothies!

1. Blend fruits until creamy smooth.

2. Mix in yogurt!

3. Put mixture in to something like ice cube trays, somewhere were it can freeze. Put it in the freezer.

4. Let it thaw out, and serve to lizard. Clean out smoothie when your lizard is done. The mixture can spoil fast.

Wow!  You made that smoothie nice and easy! It is a quick, healthy treat for your lizard! It makes a great reward, just make sure you don't give it to your lizard to often. It is just a treat, after all. Inspired by natrual-pet-essentials.com. I hope you enjoyed! Happy cooking!


  1. Katie love your post! You think mine turned out okay too? :-)

  2. I think your post was great! Sure hope everyone else does too. Guys, I'm not feeling the love...
