Recipe: Chicken and Sage Dog Biscuits

Most dogs love chicken, but getting your pet to eat sage could be a challenge. These sage dog biscuits are a favorite with our pack, and they offer a lot of nutritional benefits.

In small amounts, sage is safe for dogs to eat. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, so it is especially good for dogs with arthritis and other inflammation issues.

Sage is a superfood ingredient, when used in small quantities. If you feed too much sage, it could cause gastrointestinal upset.

These sage dog treats are great to offer your pet once in a while, but they shouldn't be the only treat in your toolbox.

Sage contains Vitamins A, E, and K. It is also high in minerals including magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

Not only can sage help support a balanced diet, it can also support healthy bones, eyes and skin. Sage has even been recognized for its immune boosting properties.

The best thing about making homemade food and treats for your dog is that you can cater them to your pet's unique needs.

If your dog has food allergies or sensitivities, you can change the ingredients to meet his needs.

You can also substitute ingredients to make the recipe more affordable, depending on what ingredients are available in your region.

Finally, you may want to substitute ingredients to change the recipe from time to time and give your dog some variety.

  • Category: Baked Treats
  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: Dog Treats


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp fresh sage (diced)


Preheat your oven to 350° F.

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Knead until it forms a soft dough.

As you can see, I just use my hands to pack the dough into small balls and place them on a cookie sheet.

If you’d prefer to roll the dough out and use cookie cutters to make cute shapes, you can do that too. You'll need to roll the dough out until it’s about 1/4″ thick.

If you want to make small treats for a tiny dog or small treats to use during training, you can roll the dough out and use a pizza cutter or butter knife to score it into tiny squares.

No matter what shape you make them, bake the homemade dog treats for 40 minutes, until they turn golden brown.

Turn off the oven, and leave the biscuits inside to cool. They will become crunchier this way.
