In looking for ways to share a memorable Thanksgiving dinner with our pups sans slipping table scraps, we’ve stumbled upon this genius treat recipe in which two cornerstone Turkey Day dishes join forces to become:

Turkey & Cranberry Dog Cookies


  • 3-1/2c. whole wheat flour
  • 1tsp. baking powder
  • 1c. shredded cooked turkey
  • 1c. dried cranberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1tbsp. olive oil
  • 1c. low-sodium chicken broth, or as needed


  1. Preheat oven to 350F & lightly grease baking sheets.
  2. In large bowl, thoroughly whisk together whole wheat flour & baking powder. Stir in cooked turkey meat & dried cranberries. Make a well in center of mixture: pour in egg, olive oil, and 1/2c. chicken broth. Mix into soft dough, adding chicken broth 1tbsp. at a time if needed for consistency.
  3. Turn dough out onto floured work surface: knead for 1-2mins. Roll dough out 1/4in. thick and cut with favorite cookie cutters!
  4. Bake until treats brown (~25mins.). Turn off oven, leaving treats in for additional 30mins. to dry out. *Refrigerate leftovers.*

Yield: wiggly bodies and waggly tails (…and 45 treats)
