Dog Friendly Tips: Animal Odours

The sources of animal odours, aside from excrement of course, are ear canker, lip-fold or other infections, anal gland secretions, sebum from thousands of body glands, and dog collars, which absorb sebum.

All of these can be eliminated by cleaning the ears, by treating any infections, by expressing the anal glands, and by thorough bathing.

When I take Jack to be groomed I always have his anal glands done at the same time, as this is probably the cause of him becoming a bit whiffy after a month or two without bathing. That and the fact frequent swimming in the river will make his coat smell a bit.

Simple to make, meat free dog treats!
I thought a dog treat without using liver or meat would make a nice change so I thought I'd try banana alongside peanut butter and honey. These buns are great, they have a hard crusty shell which makes them excellent to carry around but moist and bready inside and packed with flavour! Dogs love them!

200g Cornflour.
200g Wholemeal flour
1 tablespoon of Honey
2 eggs
2 bananas
200g Smooth peanut butter!.

How to make:
Add two eggs, peanut butter, 2 chopped bananas and a tablespoon of honey to a large mixing bowl.
Mash it all together until it is smooth.
Add the flour and the cornflour.
Mix it all together with a fork then roll up your sleeves because you'll need to get stuck in with your hands to mix it all up! Into a big dough ball.
Roll into little balls and place onto baking tray. Be quite firm when rolling them in your hands!
Place into the oven at 130°C and then cook for 45 minutes.
(Always keep an eye on them when cooking to make sure they don't burn)
