I’ve always loved community cookbooks because the contributors share their very best recipes.  They’re the most used cookbooks in my collection, worn and stained with splatters of fudge and other goodies that almost invariably turn out well.  That’s why I was so happy to hear that John Bigley and Paris Permenter of DogTipper.com were calling for recipe submissions for their book, My Dog Says I’m a Great Cook.

The resulting dog treat recipe book was published in November, 2012.  I ordered through The Book Depository (free worldwide shipping), and it’s also available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The recipes in this book do not disappoint!  There are over a hundred dog treat recipes, each carefully selected from all entries, plus some from the publisher.  There are treats suitable for any dog (including those with allergies).

Dog Treat Categories include:

Dehydrated Treats
Jerky Treats
Biscuit Treats
Fishy Fido Treats
Training Treats
Savory Meat Treats
Stuffable Treats
Frozen Treats
Holiday Treats
Other Treats

Complimenting this delectable selection is a list of foods you shouldn’t feed your dog, tips for saving money on meat, and oven temperature / measurement conversions.  We were delighted with the tips and dog quotes that are scattered throughout the book.  Homemade dog treats aren’t always pretty, so it’s nice that they decided to illustrate the recipes with pictures of the contributors’ dogs.

There are only minor negative points for this dog treat recipe book.  If you like pictures of the treats with recipes, you’ll miss them in My Dog Says I’m a Great Cook.  I prefer a spiral-bound recipe book, but that’s not the standard so I can’t fault them there.

Overall, this cookbook for canines is a great value for the reasonable price. I’m sure both you and your dog will enjoy it!  Look for our “Good Dog, Bad Breath” muffin recipe on page 30, we were honored to have one of our recipes chosen for this publication.
