Homemade Dog Treats with Anise

Homemade Dog Treats with Anise

Homemade dog treats with Anise are amazing! I do not know why, but I go crazy for the scent of anise. I use to live with two cats that use to go bonkers for catnip. Well let me tell you anise is the catnip for dogs! It’s an  intoxicating scent and when added to a homemade treat…yum! However my wagging pals,  just as not all cats like  catnip, even though I have never seen one who has not! Some dogs might go crazy  to anise. My vet said

 It is likely that canine heredity determines which dogs are most excited by anise, yet research into the phenomenon is very limited. Some dog foods do contain trace amounts of anise, though manufacturers claim this is not for anise’s attractant qualities but for its role in doggy digestion: it supposedly reduces  farts!

  1. When using cup measurements given, this recipe calls for too much liquid for the small amount of flour and oats. I had to more than double quantities of both flour and oats in order to produce a dough that could be rolled out. As written, the recipe produces only a soupy mixture.

    • Hi Dolan,

      Thank you so much for letting me know! I got my grams, cups and ml all mixed up! It’s hard when I’m a Canadian who grew up with cups and ounces, then had to change to the metric system and now here in the UK with weights and measures! I have updated it to the proper measurements! I really hope that yours turned out just as tasty, because you were right to double the dry ingredients!
