Did You Know?
Dog biscuits were invented accidentally in a London butcher shop during the late 1800s. According to the story, the shop’s owner was trying to expand his business by creating a new biscuit recipe for his customers. After baking a batch, he tasted them and thought they were terrible. He gave one to his dog, and the dog gobbled it right up. This gave him the idea of making biscuits especially for dogs. He made his biscuits in the shape of a bone and they began to sell rapidly.
In 1908, his recipe was bought by an American businessman who introduced it to the United States. The F.H. Bennett Biscuit company was established, and they began selling the dog biscuit under the name Malatoid. In 1911, the recipe was granted a patent. The name was changed to Milkbone in 1915 to reflect the fact that cow’s milk was one of the main ingredients.
So, are you ready to make our easy dog treat recipe yet? Yours may not be worthy of a patent, but we bet you’ll enjoy making them anyway.
