The Ultimate Dog Treat Cookbook contains 50 recipes, all taste-tested (by many happy dogs). The recipes are organized into categories: “Cookies by the Spoonful,” “Cookie-Cutter Treats,” “Special Goodies for Special Occasions,” and “Good Dogs Deserve Tasty Treats!” (tiny training treats). There are also some recipes for special-needs dogs, for meat-free, grain-free, wheat-free, or low-fat treats. A lot of the recipes use “shortcuts” such as store-bought muffin mixes rather than having you make everything from scratch. “Nutritional Notes” scattered throughout the book give a nutritional summary of a variety of ingredients. Information given includes calories, grams of protein, fat, and carbohydrates, and the amount (in milligrams) of various minerals for such things as sunflower seeds, oatmeal, and salmon. As with other “treat” books for dogs, the recipes are not meant to provide a full balanced diet (the author recommends they’re used for no more than 10% of the dog’s daily intake). You can mail in for a free “Canine Chef Accessory Kit,” so keep your receipt. The kit includes goodie bags, a magnetic grocery list, and a bone-shaped cookie cutter.
