Paul's chamomile chewies

 
This recipe was kindly provided by Kate Braithwaite, Kate uses this recipe to help calm puggy Paul before getting his claws clipped.
 

Ingredients

2 cups flour
¾ cup dry milk powder
½ cup vegetable oil
2 tbs. brown sugar
2 vegetable oxo cubes; dissolved in ¾ cup boiling water infused with 2 tbsp dried chamomile flowers
½ cup carrots (optional)
1 egg
 
Method:

Preheat oven to 200.  Infuse the oxo water with the dried german chamomile flowers and leave to stand for 1 hour. Strain with double muslin and then strain again to ensure the water is free from flower debris. heat the water in a pan or in the microwave and Mix all ingredients into a ball and roll out to about ¼" thick. Cut with bone-shaped cookie cutter, or strips, or a cutter shape of your own choice.
Place on non greased cookie sheet and bake 30 minutes at 200.
 
These biscuits are a nice way to keep puggy relaxed (ie ready for nail clipping etc!) but also treats him too! if giving to puggy before nail clipping then offer him 2 biscuits 1 hour before proceeding to allow the herb to take effect.

 

George & Archie's Liver Treats

 
This recipe was passed to us sometime ago and we forget it's origin but Puggies do seem to like it.
 

Ingredients

1 lb of liver (any kind), pureed.
1 cup of plain flour.
1 cup of corn meal.
2 Tbsp of Garlic powder.
1 Tbsp of sunflower oil (you can use another sort of oil if you prefere).

 
Method:

Puree the liver and stir in the other ingredients. Spread on a oiled baking sheet and score with a knife into treat size peices. Bake at 200 degrees for about 25 minutes. Cool and break into pieces along the score lines.


These freeze well in bags and thaws very quickly pugs will even try to eat them still frozen.

 

Paul's Relaxing Herbal Bath Tonic

 
This recipe was kindly provided by Kate Braithwaite, Kate uses this recipe to help relax and calm puggy Paul after a hard days play.
 
Method:

make up a small bag from sewn together squares of muslin, roughly 2in by 2in.
place inside of the bag 20g of dried german chamomile flowers and 20g of dried hops, then sew together the opening. (Alternatively use a clean pop sock and tie the top!)
Put the bag into a warm running bath ensure that you swish it around in the bath and squeeze it out occasionally.The warm water will allow the natural oils in the herbs to vaporize and be inhaled, plus they will aid the coat to stay shiny and nourished.
 
Place puggy in the bath and gently wash the water over him. Don't hurry through this, this is the most important part in which the vapors work their magic! Continue with your normal bath routine. rinse puggy with warm clear water when finished.
 
I use this to clean him up on those days after being muddy, messy and his batteries are low from playing in the fields! he will calm down and get the best nights sleep ever!!
