    Has anyone ever used the power bars or drinks they now make for dogs?  Just wondering if anyone thinks they make a difference.

    I think the power bars are alright. But I have heard the drinks are hard on the dogs kidneys. I make my own power cookies. They just seen to help him bounce back quicker. I don't see much in the longer lasting dept......Bob

    Ok guys here it is

    TONY COOKIE RECIPE

    1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup Peanut Butter
    ¾ cup Honey
    ¾ cup Dry Milk
    1/3 cup Oil
    ¾ cup whole wheat flour
    ¾ cup reg. Flour
    ½ cup Malto-Dextin
    2 Eggs
    Water

    Mix peanut butter, honey, oil, eggs, blend well
    Add dry milk oatmeal; 2 flours blend with wet mixture to stiff but smooth dough. If not blending right add a little water. You want stiff dough. Drop dough on cookie sheet as to make a cookie the size of silver dollar. Press very flat with a sugered glass.

    Bake 350 until very brown and really hard. The harder the better.

    NOTE: The Malt-Dextrin makes the dough very sticky do not handle it if possible. Make the sure the glass has lots of sugar the cookies will stick to it otherwise. Wash Glass as needed.

     NOTE:     The Malto-Dextrin is used for making BEER. You can get it at a store that sells Beer making supplies. I keep my spare cookies in the freezer until needed. If left out to long they will mildew.

    I feed 2-3 the night before and then another 2-3 when he is done hunting for the day.

    As you can see all the ingredients are edible for humans. If you care to try them. I ate one and they are pretty good. The oil is any Vegetable or Canola type oil.

    "The oil is any Vegetable or Canola type oil."
    ..well that explains why mine tasted bad. I guess Penzoil 10/40 was the wrong ingredient.. :p
